How to play Hot as Hades

Hot as Hades features 20 paylines over 5 reels and 3 rows, with a soundtrack similar to an animation film that is suspenseful but not over powering. You can mute this in the top right hand corner, however.

Every now and then Hades runs out to the reels, clearly up to no good while we spin the reels to activate the bonus rounds.

Hot as Hades symbols

Hades and Zeus are on the reels along with with other brother Poseidon, and the seductive, but evil, Medusa too. Microgaming has also stuck with the lower values symbols of 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A.

Hot as Hades real money slotsThere are the usual Wild and Scatter symbols, though the Scatter doesn’t act in the way that it normally does (it triggers a multi-level bonus round rather than a free spins bonus). Additionally, keep an eye out for Hades on the reels, because if you spin four or more Hades characters you are in for a substantial payout.

Wild symbol: The Wild symbol is the Hot as Hades logo and it substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter symbols. Additionally, it changes into a burning symbol with the text ‘Wild’ when it completes a winning combination.

Scatter symbol: The Scatter symbol is the glowing bull skull but instead of activating a free spins round, it triggers a multi-level bonus round, requiring at least three to do so.

Bonuses

The two bonus features included in Hot as Hades are quite unique and offer an entertaining way to win.

Quest for the Crystal Helm Bonus: Triggered by at least three Scatters, players are taken to a bonus where you can pick your way through five mini bonuses to win big (which is somewhat reminiscent of the ever popular Avalon slot). The mini bonuses include:

  • Pillars of Awesomeness
  • Medusa’s Maze
  • Poseidon’s Ocean
  • Zeus’ Stairway
  • Chamber of the Crystal Skull

Every mini bonus round has cash prizes that you can pick, but there is also an ‘end game’ option and if you click this you are automatically exited from the bonus round. If you make it to the final mini bonus, the Chamber of the Crystal Skull, you will win big, however.

Super Mode: While the Scatter is busy activating the multi-level bonus round, there are still free spins available. These are randomly triggered throughout the base game and here you will receive five free spins with three Held Wilds and a 2x multiplier that will remain for the entire five free spins.

Other features in Hot as Hades

We have included some of the other features on the Hot as Hades slot including;

  • Autoplay:
 There is an autoplay feature where you can opt to spin a minimum of 25 free spins automatically, or up to a maximum of 500. You can also chose to stop the spins when a win exceeds a certain amount or just when all spins are complete.
  • Stop: There is the option to stop the reels spinning when you want, though we don’t really enjoy this feature. If you think you can stop the reels on a big win however, give it a try.
  • Paytable:The payable is available to view by clicking on the ‘Pays; link in the top right hand corner and here you can view what the symbols do, what the lower value symbols pay out and more.

Our verdict

Hot as Hades is an entertaining slot from Microgaming and we triggered the multi-level bonus only after a few spins, though we managed to pick the ‘end game’ feature on the second mini bonus level. We still received a substantial payout and it was a unique way to win cash.
