The Hot as Hades slot at Royal Vegas Online Casino is the latest game release by gaming software developer, Microgaming. Players are hurled into the fiery depths of the underworld in this tongue-in-cheek slot, where flames rise to the roof and the only thing to rival the heat is the blazing hot jackpot, with the Greek god of the underworld not as scary as he was believed to be.
Released in July 2015, Hot in Hades features five reels, twenty paylines and three rows of game symbols, while containing numerous extra features designed to help casino gamers improve their line wins. While Super Mode Free Spins bonus is activated completely at random, the Quest for the Crystal Helm bonus game is played across five levels and can result in some excellent payouts.
Play Hot as Hades
Hot as Hades truly showcases the remarkable capabilities of Microgaming in terms of animation and imagination. Hades shows off his flaming hair with a cheeky grin as he takes players around his scorching lair which contains rolling lave, bursting fireballs, skulls and a host of other morbidly entertaining décor. Medusa, Poseidon and Zeus are other characters from the Greek mythology making their appearance in this exciting video slot.
How to play
Choose coin value from $0.01 to $0.25 using + and – within the Bet button and press Spin or Auto Play to start the game.
The Super Mode Free Spins feature will activate at random, giving players 5 Free Spins, with a Multiplier of up to 2x.
One of the regular symbols could then be transformed into a Held Wild, with up to three of these remain in place for the duration of the feature.
Strategy and tips
As soon as the player lines up 3 or more Scatters anywhere on the screen, the Quest for the Crystal Helm bonus game is triggered.
Once the Quest for the Crystal Helm bonus has been activated, players progress through the 5 stages of the game where, at each level, they are tasked with helping Hades pick an item on screen.
Players should ensure that they choose wisely, as if they pick a ‘pop’ item, the bonus will end. If a winning item is selected, a cash prize will be awarded.
