Mythic Maiden is one of Net Entertainment’s creepiest slot games, and an underlying feel of horror sticks with players throughout every spin.
The game’s one of Net Entertainment’s many medium-variance titles, and using 5 reels and 30 pay lines, it’s not the most common layout/design we’re used to seeing from the software provider – but aside from a few extra pay lines, and the minimum spin set at £0.30, as opposed to the regular £0.20/25, the game remains ‘classic Net Entertainment’, with the layout, buttons, and functions pretty much identical to most other Net Entertainment games.
Thanks to Net Entertainment’s commitment to converting all their games to HTML5, Mythic Maiden can also be enjoyed by players on mobile phones and tablets, and with nothing to download or install, getting started couldn’t be easier – although we don’t recommend playing at night on your own… you know, nightmares n’ that.
Jokes aside, the backdrop of the slot is eerie – and that’s underplaying it – and on the reels, you’ll see both traditional playing card symbols, including 10, J (Jack), Q (Queen), K (King), and A (Ace), alongside the game specific symbols, which includes a Chest, a Shrunken Head, an Orb of Light, a Creepy Book, and more.
There’s also a Moon Symbol, which you’ll see on all five reels, and this symbol acts as the games wild; it substitutes all other symbols, helping to make up pay lines when – without it – there would be none, and while it doesn’t substitute for the games scatter symbols, it does multiply your wins by 3X, in both the base game and the free-spins round, which makes it a premium symbol, and one to look out for.
The Orb of Light symbol acts as the games scatter symbol, and if you manage to land three, four, or five of the scatter symbols, you’ll trigger the Mythic Maiden free-spins round. The number of scatter symbols you land determines how many free-spins you’re awarded, and land three, and you’ll be awarded 10 free-spins. 4 scatter symbols give you 15 free-spins, while landing five gives you a whopping 30 free-spins.
During the free-spins round, you’ll want to pay close attention on the Iron Maiden sarcophagus (which is part of the games design, and can be found full-game-height on the right-hand-side of your screen), as, each and every spin, this lights up, and can award either a multiplier, or extra free-spins.
The multiplier it can award is anywhere from 2X, to 10X, and you can be given 2 free-spins.
While the low number of free-spins given seems a bit stingy, it’s worth noting that you can re-trigger the bonus, simply by landing another three, four, or five scatter symbols within the free-spins bonus.
There’s no maximum cap on how many free-spins you can win, so it can get pretty decent if you get on a lucky streak.
