Mythic Maiden, a Spooky NetEnt Slot
Haunted houses, cursed tombs and all other forms of general fear inducing scary has always given people that exhilarating helpless feeling that we so love. Bringing to life another NetEnt original idea is the interesting new slot Mythic Maiden.
With a specific focus placed on the appearance and design of the slot and reels NetEnt has developed a game that pulls the players into the world they’ve constructed and makes the hair at the back of their neck stand on end. The game has a deeper structure to it than just its imagery however and so the USA players interested will definitely still be able to find all manner of spooky bonuses to play and win with.
The Setup of Mythic Maiden
Clearly oriented towards Halloween and frankly most other scary settings Mythic Maiden aims to shock players into action and adventure. The design on the reels as well as the slot’s background and theme are all done with a dedicated attention and passion toward the slot games. The ambience, sound effects and general audio atmosphere all accentuate the experience of this enthralling slot game. Fundamentally this game is a 5 reel, 30 pay line slot and amongst its base game players will find several entertaining aspects and a few moderate scale wins.
The reel symbols make up a lot of the experience, as players have to grow familiar with these to start strategically aiming for them. On the reels of this slot game are the classic top card symbols, here depicted as worn candles. Other symbols are ghoulish tomes, witches’ heads, black spiders and coffins. Truly a rather beautifully horrid display. However it is the bonus symbols at play that gamers should keep particular tabs on. These include the wild, scatter, and multiplier symbols.
The Spooky Slot Bonuses
The wild in this game is represented by a full moon and can swap between any other symbols, besides the bonus ones, to complete any winning possibilities. What makes this wild particularly great is that when used to complete a combination the payouts from that round are tripled.
The next bonus symbol to be mindful of is the scatter symbol, which in Mythic Maiden triggers the free spin rounds. These are dependent on how many scatters appear anywhere on the reels and can go up to rather impressive 30 free spins when 5 scatters appear. The final bonus feature comes in the form of the Mythic Maiden statue standing just beside the reels and is only active during the free spins. During this round the statue opens up and awards random prizes of multipliers and further free spins after each free spin.
A truly inspired addition that not only makes the free spins more exciting but also last longer and result in more lucrative wins.
In closing this scary slot game has done a lot right in the way of pleasing the players and this makes for the mistakes they might have overlooked. Overall Mythic Maiden is a good quality game from NetEnt with some interesting bonuses and a dramatized scare factor.
