The wombat says: OK we’re months away from Halloween, but fans of spine-chilling slots and horror movies will love Mythic Maiden. So what’s it all about? Well, Iron Maidens were nasty medieval torture devices that were basically box-like coffins with iron spikes on the inside. Or long haired heavy metal dudes moonlighting as airline pilots of course. It’s all a long way from the Casper slot featuring everyone’s favourite friendly ghost.
It’s the historical horrors that NetEnt Gaming have chosen to take as their terrifying theme in Mythic Maiden slot.
This wombat had a right scare while reviewing the game to be honest, and we really didn’t like being stared at by the locked chest with a glowing face on it from the side of the reels. Eeeeeeeeeek!
Look and Feel
Overall the graphics in the game are good, just as you’d come to expect from a NetEnt release. One of the symbols looks like she’s just stepped out of the Hells Grannies slot -looking mean!
The reels are set against the backdrop of a creepy attic in a dire need of a proper spring clean, filled with chilling artefacts and unfriendly looking spiders (Mrs Wombat would do her nut up there!).
Then there’s chests and boxes filled with dusty relics, tribal masks, old maps and goodness knows what else. Add some spooky sound effects that include howling winds and floorboards creaking and you get one ruddy scary slot! All in all top class graphics from the makers of the Hansel and Gretel slot– you’re going to love ’em!
Mythic Maiden slot has 3 rows, 5 reels and 30 paylines. Your creepy symbols are made up of spider with a red cross on its back, a big tome being held by a skeleton’s hand, an old red leather chest, the skull of what looks like some kind of extinct animal, and a weird voodoo shrunken head complete with its lips sewn up. Your lowing paying symbols in the slot are represented by the standard playing cards 10, J, Q, K & A – although they’ve been made to look a bit more interesting than usual, and appear to be carved out of melted wax candles.
The Wild symbol in the game is the Moon/Skull symbol, and it will do the usual job of substituting for all symbols on the reels to make winning combos for you. The Wilds will also give you a x3 multiplier on any wins its included in during the base game, AND the Free Spins, too. Excellent!
Spooky Scatters and Free Spins
The Scatter symbol in the game is the glowing red and purple orb of light. Land 3x of these shiny beauties anywhere on the reels and you’ll set off the Free Spins Bonus. Next, the Mythic Maiden’s tomb will creak open to reveal which multiplier you’ll receive – from 1x up to 10x – and it will also offer you either 1x or 2x extra Free Spins.
The number of spins you’ll receive in the round depends how many Moon Scatters you landed in the first place. 3x, 4x or 5x will scoop you an impressive 10, 15 or 30 free spins respectively. The Free Spins can also be re-triggered, by landing 3x or more of the Scatter symbols during the bonus.
All in all, a very entertaining game with a lucrative Free Spins round and some excellent creepy touches. Give Mythic Maiden slot a spin, you won’t be disappointed.
