Microgaming is making things very hot with the release of the Hot as Hades slot machine. The action on this game takes place in the underworld and the cartoon characters are quite amusing. Furthermore, the slot machine has wild symbols, a special bonus game triggered by scatters and a randomly awarded Super Mode that consists of 5 free spins with at least 3 wild symbols.
Hot as Hades makes sure to heat things up a bit with its flaming theme based on a cartoon version of the Greek god of the underworld. The animated style goes a long way towards making this slot funny and entertaining while the action takes place in a version of hell. 20 lines are fixed for the five reels with three rows in this Microgaming title and Hades himself can be found sometimes alongside the reels, smiling and having a good time. The logo of the game is the wild symbol and when it helps create a winning combination, it multiplies the win by two. Its payout for more wild symbols on a line is very impressive. The scatter pays anywhere on the screen and the symbol shows a magic crystal helmet. Getting three or more scatters at the same time will trigger the Quest For The Crystal Helm bonus game. This takes place on a different screen and the goal here is to reclaim the lost crystal helmet guarded by the three-headed dog. Players must travel from the action in the underworld and get pass adversaries in order to win bonus rewards. Finding the Cerberus will award all of the prizes on the respective level but pitfalls will end the quest. There are four levels to go through in order to reach Zeus’ Chamber and play for the chance to win the crystal helm for added rewards. The Super Mode can be triggered randomly and it will award 5 free spins with three random wilds to start and an additional one which can be won per spin. The additional wilds will be held in place for the remaining free spins. The symbol of Hades is the highest paying regular icon in the game and he is joined on the reels by four more creatures from the Greek mythology. The paytable also shows six card symbols to wrap things up.
