Hot as Hades is an online slot game produced by Microgaming and themed around Hades, the God of the Underworld in Greek Mythology. Hades is joined by Zeus, Poseidon and Medusa in this tongue-in-cheek, cartoon designed game, which features powerful and atmospheric music. The game is set within the underworld and features 20 pay lines across 5 reels. Players can win up to a whopping 100,000 coins.

The lower value reel symbols are standard playing card symbols in Hot as Hades. The higher value symbols are theme-related and include Hades, Zeus, Poseidon, Medusa and Cerberus (Hades’ three-headed guard-dog).

The Hot as Hades logo symbol is the wild and substitutes for all symbols except scatter. Any wins created by the wild are doubled.

The scatter symbol – represented by the crystal helm -  will activate the Quest for the Crystal Helm bonus feature should it land 3, 4 or 5 times on the reels. This is an exciting and in-depth bonus game featuring 5 levels in which the aim is to take back the crystal helm which is fiercely protected by Hades’ evil siblings. You must complete the first 4 levels – filled with Pick and Win style games packed with prizes galore – in order to then play for the crystal helm in the final level, which comes with additional rewards.

In addition to the bonus feature, Hot as Hades offers free spins in the Super Mode. 5 free spins are activated randomly throughout the game. The free spins begin with 3 wild positions appearing anywhere on the reels at random. During the game, more random Wild positions may be added to the reels, and all wild positions will be held until the Super Mode is over. This is a great way to spontaneously boost your cash balance!

Verdict

Graphically, Hot as Hades is brilliant and I’m a huge fan of the way Microgaming have managed to turn this powerful theme into an amusing cartoon-style design. The main attraction is of course, the Quest for the Crystal Helm feature, which sounds quite complex but is in fact relatively simple and extremely enjoyable. This feature also seems to trigger quite frequently, keeping players engaged with the game. This is a great game from Microgaming and certainly one that I would recommend.
