Mythic Maiden Slot Overview
Old buildings, terrifying creatures and items that look like they belong to a warlock trying to summon demons – in this place, you find yourself staring at a large coffin with glowing eyes – and let’s be honest, we have all watched enough horror movies to know that this is not going anywhere good. But when it comes to horror, facing it head-on is the only way to defeat it, and unsealing the maiden’s chest will give you many rewards – if you can survive the aftermath, that is. Mythic Maiden slot is a NetEnt game played on a 5×3 playing field with 30 fixed pay lines. The title offers gamblers a Wild that doesn’t pay anything but gives a 3x multiplier increase to all wins it is a part of, and a Scatter bonus that can reward between 10 to 30 free spins depending on how many Scatters trigger it. But the crown jewel of it all is the maiden herself – once opened, she gives additional free spins and multipliers.
Under Lock & Key
There’s no arguing that this game looks good. While it has a horror theme, there’s really nothing to scare you, unless you really hate big spiders. We quite like the creative use of the poker card symbols – turning them into candles was honestly a really good idea, and while we’re usually not the biggest fans of using poker card icons, they were well implemented here, so we will let it slide. In the meantime, you’ll find the standard NetEnt user interface, which we’ve already expressed our opinions on before – it’s damn good. The only flaw we have with it is the fact it’s a bright green, which doesn’t fit with anything else on the reels.
On the gameplay side of things, Mythic Maiden slot machine can reward players during normal play only with the presence of a Wild, that gives a 3x multiplier increase. Otherwise, the symbols themselves simply don’t pay enough, and it was done on purpose to balance the maiden mechanic, which relies on rewarding gamblers with more free spins and multipliers. All of it is done to make the special feature more attractive, and as such, it raises Mythic Maiden to be a high volatility slot – you’re in it for the long haul, and you either win big or don’t win at all. The only thing you can do is grit your teeth and hope you’re lucky that day.
Open The Coffin
You need at least three Scatters to activate the free spins bonus, which rewards ten extra turns. That said, you can also get fifteen or thirty extra spins if you get four or five Scatters at once, respectively. They also continue to appear during the extra turns themselves, so you can always win more, as well. On top of that, during the free spins, the maiden opens, which gives players a chance to get a multiplier which can increase up to 10x or an additional extra turn or two. The multiplier can also mix with the Wild, for a grand total of a 30x increase for the luckiest gamblers.
When it’s all said and done, Mythic Maiden certainly deserves the attention it’s gotten. It’s well-designed, and NetEnt has clearly put in time and effort to polish it and make it enjoyable to play. If you’re itching for a high volatility game and need a new one to play, why not give it a few spins and see if you can brave the horrors inside the maiden?
