Hades: River of Souls Slot Game (Microgaming)

Hades: River of Souls Slot Game (Microgaming)Welcome on board as we take a journey through Hades: River of Souls, a new 2020 slot game by Microgaming.

In this slot game, you will get the opportunity to venture deep into the famed Greek underworld.

Game Set-Up

Hades River of Souls uses the usual set up that we have seen on most modern slots. By this I mean it’s a 5 reel slot game that also comes with 10 pay lines.  To get a win, you will be required to land on at least three similar symbols on the same line.

It’s a slot that uses both ways wins model, and this means that you will be able to form winnings starting with the first reel (right to left) and last reel (left to right).

Betting Prizes

To place a wager on this slot game, you will need to use between €0.20 and €100 per spin. With five symbols going the same way, the game will pay you up to at 10x your stake, and as much as 20x when using both ways pays.

With the relevant features, Hades River of Souls can pay as much as 5,058x the stake. Considering that the highest amount that you are allowed on the game is €100, this can mean a total reward of €505,800.  

However, please note that although Microgaming has announced a decent RTP of 96.56%, Hades: River of Souls is risky gameplay, and it comes with medium-to-high volatility.

Hades River of Souls Slot Special Features

Above its reels, you will notice that there are some symbols which are designed to drop down via avalanche wins. If there are no winnings made, the game will give you a new set of symbols.

In the background, I noticed some jagged rocks that are well blended with a cavernous landscape, and this gives the game a therapeutic design.

For its main features, the slot has Wild Souls Multipliers, free spins, as well as the Skull of Charon. You can use the wild symbol to substitute the other regular symbols of the slot.

Initially, the multiplier starts you off at 1x, but it can increase +1 each time you manage to collect three wild symbols. The process will go on until there are no more avalanche wins.

To trigger the slot’s free spins, you will need the help of +3 Golden Trident scatters. This will in return give you 10 Hades Free Spins; with extra triggering delivering an additional +5 free spins.

Theme and Design

Hades: River of Souls offers a therapeutic gaming atmosphere, with its nature-inspired design.

The game has a lot of interesting features, and for the low-value symbols, some pots have different designs like a snake, bull, lion, deer, and a raven.

High-value symbols include Persephone, Cerberus, gyro, Hades, and a helmet.


Being a Microgaming slot game, I would have expected much higher top payouts for a game with such high volatility.

However, when it comes to the features and design Hades River of Souls has done relatively well. Its interesting theme is one of the reasons why you should try it out.
