Microgaming has proudly announced the upcoming release of a new and insatiably quirky online reel spinner entitled Hot As Hades. The new online slot is set to hit Microgaming-powered gaming sites on Wednesday, July 8, 2015. Until then, we’ll give you a brief overview of what to expect from this feature-packed game.
Hot As Hades Slot by Microgaming
Hot As Hades is a humorous take on classic Greek mythology. A toothy, wide-bodied caricature of Hades, the Greek God of the Underworld, embarks on an epic reel spinning adventure with his favorite 3-headed companion, Cerberus. Players will tag along as Hades takes on fellow rulers of the realm, including Zeus, Poseidon and Medusa, in his ambitious Quest for the Crystal Helm.
The new slot has 5×3 reels and 20 paylines, with a bet range of £0.01 to £2.50 per line (£0.20 to £50 with all paylines active). Although there’s no progressive jackpot, the video slot does have plenty of other ways to land massive wins.
The Hot As Hades logo is the Wild symbol and takes the place any other symbol (except Scatters) to produce the highest possible winning combinations.
At any time during the base game, Super Mode can be triggered at random. When this occurs, the player is awarded 5 free spins with a 2x multiplier. As the free spin phase begins, Hades enters the corner of the screen and waggishly hip-tosses wilds onto the reels, where three will hold for the duration of the free spins.
The Crystal Helm symbol is the Scatter, and when three or more of these appear anywhere on the reels, it triggers the Quest for the Crystal Helm Bonus game. The flame-haired, air-guitaring Hades dons his shades and takes off on a journey to the summit of Mount Olympus. Microgaming is keeping the full details of the bonus screen game under wraps for now, but we do know players can win as much as 100,000 coins during this feature.
Microgaming Comments on Creation of Hot As Hades Slot
“We’re very proud of our Hot as Hades slot,” proclaimed an enthusiastic Mike Hedben, Head of Casino Games at Microgaming. “We’ve combined a popular theme, the highest quality design work and a perfectly balanced slot engine to create what we believe is a flagship game.”
Based on the Hot As Hades promo video published by the world’s leading interactive games developer back in May, the aesthetic appeal of the new video slot is impeccable. It is packed with animated 3D cut-scenes, and the comical nature of the characters and plot should make this reel spinner all the more enjoyable for slots fans.
“After months of hard work,” Hedben continued, “we’re incredibly excited for the game’s launch and we hope our operators’ players enjoy playing the game as much as we enjoyed creating it.”
The Isle of Man-based gaming content provider is set to launch Hot As Hades at a plethora of Microgaming powered online casinos on Wednesday, July 8, 2015. The highly anticipated slot machine will be available across all formats, including the downloadable casino client and the instant-play Flash casino, as well as the brand’s exclusive Quickfire platform, accessible on most mobile devices.
