Isle of Man-based gaming software supplier Microgaming is set to launch Hot as Hades, its latest online slot set to go live on its download, Flash and Quickfire platforms next week (July 8th).

Hot as Hades is a 5x3 reel, 20-line slot and features a tongue-in-cheek take on the Greek god of the underworld as he embarks on an adventure to Mount Olympus with his three-headed sidekick Cerberus.

The game includes a wide array of winning opportunities including a free spins mode that is triggered at random in the base game, with five free spins delivered with three held wilds at a 2x multiplier.

Three or more scatter symbols trigger the Quest for the Crystal Helm bonus game, which allows players to win up to 100,000 coins. The five-level game sees Hades come up against Medusa, Poseidon and Zeus to uncover a Crystal Helm.

With each stage of Hades’ journey up Mount Olympus taking the form of a mini-film featuring 3D graphics and high-quality animation, Microgaming says that the title shows its dedication to create new, higher standards of game development.

“We’re very proud of our Hot as Hades slot,” Microgaming’s head of casino games Mike Hebden said. “We’ve combined a popular theme, the highest quality design work and a perfectly balanced slot engine to create what we believe is a flagship game.

“After months of hard work, we’re incredibly excited for the game’s launch and we hope our operators’ players enjoy playing the game as much as we enjoyed creating it.”

Next week will also see an updated version of the supplier’s Chainmail slot released. The game has been updated to HD quality, with new features such as free games and achievements added to enhance the gameplay experience.

Microgaming will also roll out mobile versions of Party Island and Supe It Up in July.
