Mythic Maiden Slot Review


I’ll be brutally honest here and say that I love slots that have a bit of a weird edge to them, I’m not referring to slots that are based specifically on horror stories or similar, though they can be enjoyable, I’m talking more of slots that just offer you a touch of creepiness that sets your skin on edge. NetEnt have produced a simple yet hugely enjoyable slot in this vein called Mythic Maiden and I urge you to take a closer look.

You can play this game right now at Bet365 Vegas, one of the three casino sites part of the Bet365 network and you’ll find that it is a 5×3 reel slot that offers 30 selectable paylines in play and a choice of different coin values (from £0.01 up to £0.50) as well as a number of Levels at which to play the game. Increasing your coin value and level size increases the size of the bet and you can play from £0.30 up to a maximum of £150 per spin.

There are the usual playing card inspired low symbols on the reels, although they take the form of rather grotesque melted candles, while the higher value symbols are a creepy assortment of goodies including an animal skull, a large spider, a treasure chest, a spell book clutched by skeletal hands and a mummified head, which is the largest paying high symbol and the only symbol to offer a payout when landed twice on the reels. The slot also features a number of  bonus features, which we’ll explore in more detail below.

Mythic Maiden Bonus Features

The first and most commonly used bonus feature is the in game Wild, this is the Moon shining through a broken window (although is that a skull you can see reflected in the moon?). This symbol can substitute for all symbols bar the scatter symbol and when it does to complete a winning payline, it also awards the player a 3x multiplier on top of their standard win. Of course, you can land multiple wilds across the reels to increase your chances of a higher value win.

The second bonus feature is the free spins game and this is accessed when you land three or more of the spinning purple and red dot Scatter symbols on the reels. Land three to hit 10 free spins, four gets you 15 free spins but hit all five scatters on a spin and you’ll earn the maximum 30 free spins. Furthermore, you can win additional free spins during the free spins bonus round.

During the free spins bonus, the Iron Maiden opens up and on each spin can bestow upon you either a multiplier bonus of up to 10x the usual win on a spin, or the Iron Maiden may also award you either one or two additional free spins. On some spins, you can land both a multiplier bonus and free spins if you are fortunate enough.

The gameplay on the Mythic Maiden slot is genuinely creepy with so many nice touches and a genuinely spooky soundtrack. The base game offers a good mix of smaller and medium value wins, while hitting the free spins round is the best way to achieve some of the bigger wins in the game and with a 600,000 coin jackpot up for grabs, this is one Mythic Maiden you will certainly like to get to know better.


Editor's Review

Mythic Maiden is a fast, fun and genuinely creepy game that relies heavily on atmosphere to create the right ambiance for the game. It does this superbly well without obfuscating the fact that this is a highly enjoyable slot, with the potential for some massive wins given the 600,000 coin jackpot available. With rewarding free spins that are not too difficult to hit, Mythic Maiden hits all the right marks and is certainly one slot to add to your play list.
