Mythic Maiden is a gripping NetEnt slot that has a distinctively creepy Gothic theme. It's named after a medieval instrument of torture known as The Iron Maiden, which was a vertical coffin-shaped box lined with iron spikes in which victims were forcibly enclosed. Luckily, the Iron Maiden that features in the Mythic Maiden slot is nowhere near as gory. In fact, it has the potential to open up during the free spins bonus to award additional free games and multipliers of up to x10. The game also includes a spooky Full Moon wild symbol that triples the value of all prizes it helps to win.
More about the Software Provider
NetEnt is one of the biggest names in the iGaming industry, and it was founded in Sweden by Pontus Lindwall in 1996. During its early years, the company (which was then known as Net Entertainment) concentrated on making sports betting software, but in 2002, it launched its first online casino. By 2003, several casino operators had chosen to use NetEnt software for their sites, and in 2010, the now iconic Gonzo's Quest online slot was born. For the past decade, the company has been at the forefront of mobile development, and many of its online slots including The Invisible Man, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Stickers can be played on mobile devices using the NetEnt Touch platform.
Appearance and Sound Effects
Some people collect figurines; others collect stamps, teddy bears or stickers. But, the collector whose attic features in the Mythic Maiden slots game prefers to accumulate historical, exotic, and downright macabre items.
The roof space is dimly lit by moonlight which enters through the two skylights at either side of the screen, making the contents mysteriously glow. Littered around the room is an assortment of Aztec idols, birdcages, tribal masks, antique chairs, and mummified faces. On the reels, there are even more scary and strange sights, including an animal skull, a tarantula, a locked box, a spell book that's bound together with metal gloves, a swirling orb, a full moon with a skeleton's face, the embalmed head of a tribal warrior, and playing card symbols made from melted candle wax. And, on the right-hand side of the screen, the glowing red eyes of the Iron Maiden complete the spooky scene. The soundtrack is just as creepy as the graphics, as it includes the sounds of creaking floorboards, footsteps, howling wind, unexplainable knocking, and the caws of a crow.
Bonuses and Special Features
Mythic Maiden uses a swirling orb for its scatter symbol, and when three, four or five land anywhere on the reels in the base game, you receive ten, fifteen or thirty free games. You can also win additional free spins within the bonus feature by landing more scatters. During the free spins bonus, the Iron Maiden opens up and can reveal multipliers of up to x10 and one or two extra free games after each spin.
The glowing full moon is the wild symbol in Mythic Maiden, and it can replace all symbols except scatters. It also triples prizes when it helps to contribute towards a win.
Mythic Maiden uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and thirty non-fixed paylines, and has an excellent RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 96.6%. The game lets you create winning combinations using matching symbols in succession from the leftmost reel to the rightmost reel.
The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
