Mythic Maiden Slot
Mythic Maiden by NetEnt is an unnerving game designed to appeal to slot fan with a leaning toward the macabre. Set in a dungeon littered with shrunken heads, cages, and strange artefacts the 5-reel 30 payline slot does offer an enticing big win over 2000x your bet. Given the games, low volatility and the chance to spin for wins of up to €300,000 perhaps Mythic Maiden is not all the scary after all.
Theme, Soundtrack and Symbols
Mythic Maiden is set in an arcane workshop where magic and pseudo-science joined forces to create a deeply disturbing series of experiments. We see through the reels, bordered by a heavy frame, as though the symbols give us an insight into the horrifying things once done there. There is also an iron maiden to the right of the reels that glows with inner magical energy.
The high-value symbols are the trinkets of foul sorcery with them comprising a collection that includes a Shrunken Head, an Ape Skull, a Spellbook, a Tarantula and a cursed Trunk. Melted wax candles shaped as A, K, Q, J and 10 make up the low-value symbols.
There are two special symbols on the reels, the Scatter which shows glowing orbs circling one another and the Wild which shows a Skull overlaying the moon. Neither symbol will make you sleep easier tonight.
The final component for this spell of dread is the sound design. There is no music in Mythic Maiden just the whistle of the wind, the creak of floorboards, the howl of distant wolves and what sounds the moan of lost souls as you spin the reels.
Mythic Maiden is a standard 5x3 reel slot with 30 fixed paylines. All winning combinations must begin on the leftmost reel and consist of three or more matching symbols.
It is a low volatility slot, which means you can expect frequent but very low value wins, and it offers an above-average RTP of 96.58%.
The fact that Mythic Maiden offers up to 2000x your stake almost seems at odds with its variance and RTP settings. However, spinning at the games maximum bet could see you win up to €300,000 on a low variance slot machine.
The slot offers players two entertaining features which will keep you immersed in this unnerving world as you spin for the big win:
When a Wild symbol appears on the reels of Mythic Maiden, it will substitute for any high or low-value symbol on the reels to complete a winning payline. It does not ever substitute for a Scatter symbol. All winning paylines containing a Wild symbol payout three times the standard amount.
Collecting three or more Scatter symbols in any location on the reels will trigger the Free Spins feature. Begin the feature with up to 30 Free Spins depending on how many Scatter symbols triggered it.
At the centre of the Free Spins feature is the iron maiden. It stands open during the bonus game and awards either Win Multiplier of up to x10 or additional Free Spins of up to +2 after each Free Spin.
It is possible to retrigger additional Free Spins during the bonus game.
