Over the years Microgaming has produced a ton of slot games, some of which have their own personalities and stick out to fans of the genre. These games usually have a strong character and feature set, and you can almost just tell if a slot is going to be iconic from the time you place your first spin. For me, Microgaming's new video slot Hot as Hades fits the bill as being an iconic slot, given the fact that the game doesn't take itself too seriously, and has some colorful and fun characters that give the slot a personality.
Hot as Hades is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot that features the Greek God of the underworld as he goes through hell and tries to score players large wins in the process. The game's symbols include Hades, Medusa, Cerberus, Poseidon, Zeus, helmets, and card symbols (10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace).
Feature wise the game includes wild symbols, scatters (which look like a Spartan helmet), a Quest Bonus, and a Super Mode. The Quest Bonus is set off when you uncover 3, 4, or 5 scatters on the reels. In this bonus round you travel from the Underworld and look for the crystal helm. Along the way you will encounter other Gods and eventually face off against Zeus if you get through the first four chambers. Defeating Zeus will get you the crystal helm and reward you with huge prizes.
Hot as Hades' Super Mode is randomly activated and gets you free spins with sticky wilds attached. This is combined with the fact that Hades comes out and shoots fire to a random symbol, turning it wild and scoring you some large wins in the process.
These features, when combined with the irresistible charm of the characters, makes Hot as Hades Microgaming's newest hit video slot that will surely stand the test of time.
