Hot As Hades
Hot as Hades is Microgaming’s red hot new online video pokie game. It has loosely based on Greek mythology, featuring none other than the god of the underworld himself, Hades. Other Greek gods make an appearance in this pokie, as do other popular characters from Greek mythology, including the evil Gorgon, Medusa. Hot as Hades is not as serious as other similarly themed pokie games, instead taking a more cartoony-style approach, with wonderful 3D graphics represented throughout the game.
Hot as Hades is a 5-reel, 20-payline video pokie, and one which features a mixture of classic high-playing card icons, as well as 3D gods and monsters. You won’t be able to adjust any of those lines, but you can certainly adjust your line bet.
Coin sizes of 0.01 up to 0.50 can be selected, whilst players are at liberty to bet as many as 25 coins per line, which is unheard of in the modern pokie world. Despite those huge figures, players will pay no more than 250.00 per spin on Hot as Hades, whilst minimum bets cost just 0.20 per spin.

Wild symbol: The Hot as Hades logo is the wild symbol in this game. It can multiply all of your winnings by 2x their normal rate of pay, when it appears in any winning combination. Wilds can replace all icons, but not scatters.
Scatter icon: In Hot as Hades, a horned helmet is the scatter icon. It can offer scattered wins worth 1x, 2x, 20X, or 100x your total bet, if 2, 3, 4 or 5 appear in any positions on the reels. More to the point, landing 3 or more will trigger the Quest for the Crystal Helm bonus round.
Quest for the Crystal Helm bonus: In this bonus, players must travel from the underworld to the top of Mount Olympus to bag bonus prizes. Each step of the way, they can pocket cash prizes, and advance to the next level, or they might find the Cerberus, which will cause their quest to end. Get all the way to the final stage of the fourth level to win the biggest cash prizes.
Super Mode bonus: This feature is a free spins game, and is randomly triggered in Hot as Hades. When it is, players will get 5 free games, and three wild positions will be randomly awarded. All wilds will then be held for the duration of the bonus.
Following a really successful spin, you could win as much as 100x your total bet. There are two icons which will award that non-progressive jackpot prize. Line up 5 wilds on any payline, or line up 5 scatters anywhere on the reels to win it.
Hot as Hades is certainly creative, and it is unique. The pokie doesn’t contain the same cheesy Greek mythology imagery than you will find in other pokies. Instead, this is a breath of fresh air into the genre. A good run on the Quest for the Crystal Helm bonus can really boost your wins.
