Hot as Hades is a Microgaming slot machine celebrating Hades, the ancient Greek god of the underworld, who is on a quest to find the Crystal Helm. Set in an ancient land, the game relays the mythological stories of Hades, Zeus, Poseidon, and Medusa, combined in one theme. The game has 5 reels, 3 rows, and a total of 20 fixed pay lines. The graphics are clear, crisp and quite realistic, especially the boiling lava, and Hades' lair.
The reels contain symbols of Gods, Goddesses, and other mythological characters including Medusa, Poseidon, Zeus, and Cerberus, Hades' three headed dog, as well as some standard A to 10 symbols that are common in most online slots. There are also some fun animations that occur throughout the game, such as Cerberus peeing and Hades juggling some gems.
