During normal play, the biggest payout on offer is paid out upon hitting five Hades symbols in a row – good for 1,000X your bet. Slightly further down the ladder, three jacks or tens will earn you 5X your wager for the payline.
The wild symbol appears in the form as a ‘Hot as Hades’ logo and is good for replacing any other symbol in the game. If you hit a winning line that contains a wild, the win is increased 2X.
A cash prize is paid upon hitting just two scatter symbols, which in this instance take the form of horned skulls. The ‘Quest for the Crystal Helm’ bonus game opens up if you land three or more scatters, which basically sees you trying to help Hades reclaim his recently stolen property. The bonus game has five levels – each seeing you do battle with one of Hades’ enemies.
If luck’s on your side, you might find your way into ‘Super Mode’ – five free spins that can be triggered randomly at any time. Land any wilds during this bonus mode and they’ll stick in place until you’re done with your free spins.
