Haul of Hades is another Novomatic slot game which has been produced in co-operation with Mazooma. With 5 reels and 40 paylines, the game is available to play across desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 40p to £50 a spin. With an ancient Greek theme, the God of the Underworld joins forces with other Gods as you explore the underworld and search for hidden treasures.

You get to cross the Styx, explore the realm of the dead and flee with the treasures of Hades – based on the ancient Greek legend, you go toe to toe with Hades in this beautifully designed slot. The dark imagery and epic soundtrack add to the experience with the Haul of Hades logo (the wild) being the most lucrative – 1,000 times your line stake for 5 on a payline.

In the base game, look out for giant stacked symbols – these are represented by the 4 Gods (Hades, Zeus, Athena and Aphrodite). who watch over you. During each spin, 1 of the Gods is randomly chosen to become a giant stacked symbol (which can appear on any of the 5 reels).

There is a Free Spins Bonus feature which is triggered by getting the stacked free spins symbol on the 3 middle reels – you will then be awarded 7 free spins. During the feature, 1 of the 4 gods is selected to be the giant stacked symbol for the duration of the feature. The only negative is that additional free spins cannot be triggered.

I found Haul of Hades to be an entertaining game with big wins in both the base game and free spins feature – I’ve had my biggest wins in the feature as I had Zeus as the stacked symbol appear on all 5 reels! The game is medium to high variance in my opinion.

If you like the theme, Hot as Hades from Microgaming has a cartoon/software feel – I would recommend Zeus by WMS Gaming though as this is a land based and online classic.
