Mythic Maiden Touch for Spooky Mobile Slots
The Iron Maiden, far from being an excruciating medieval torture instrument, was actually a fictional invention by Victorian horror enthusiasts. The title of Mythic Maiden, a digital slots title from developers Net Entertainment now available to tablet and smart phone players as Mythic Maiden Touch, hints that this game takes a tongue-in-cheek approach to its spooky theme, and this is borne out by the icons that appear against the dusty attic background. Even the Poker symbols, 10-A, are rendered as dribbling candles that light up magically, whenever they feature on a winning payline.
30 Paylines and Adjustable Bets
Mythic Maiden Touch has five reels and offers 30 paylines, with six coin values from 1 cent to 50c, and 10 different bet-per-payline options. All three metrics, including the number of paylines played per spin, can be adjusted, so the game can be played on big or small budgets. Mythic Maiden Touch also has an Autoplay function, so players can set a comfortable bet level, and then trigger up to 100 spins, for comfortable long-term play.
Symbols Reflect Spooky Stereotypes
Along with the Poker symbols, Mythic Maiden Touch has five higher-value symbols that take up the theme of horror standards. There’s a Chest sealed with a demonic-looking skull lock, a Spider with death’s-head markings, a Spellbook sealed by a creepy gauntlet, an ape’s Skull, and the top-scoring icon, a Shrunken Head. Payouts require three-of-a-kind matches beginning on Reel 1 for all standard symbols except the Shrunken Head, which starts paying out with 5 coins for two of a kind. The top prize in standard play, for five Shrunken Heads on a payline, is 2,000 coins.
Wild Substitutes and Adds a Multiplier
The Mythic Maiden Touch Wild, a Full Moon seen through a broken attic window, can stand in as usual for any symbol except the Scatter, to create several potential winning paylines at once, at the same time applying a X3 multiplier to any winning combinations that include the Wild. All the game icons animate when featured in a win; apart from the Poker candles igniting, the standard icons come to life and release mystical vapors, while the Wild reveals a shadowy skull embedded in the Full Moon. Wins also relieve the constant moaning of the wind that accompanies the spins with a dramatic chord.
Scatters Trigger Variable Free Spins Rounds
The Scatter symbol, an open Iron Maiden wreathed in mystical energy, continues Mythic Maiden Touch’s melodramatic theme. Three or more Scatters anywhere on the reels trigger the Free Spins round, along with another impressive animation; three scatters win 10 Free Spins, four Scatters score 15, and five, 30. Free Spins rounds can be retriggered, however, so players can be awarded more than 30 in a single round.
Biggest Possible Payout is 600,000 Coins
During Free Spins, the Iron Maiden at the side of the reels opens, to reveal a multiplier that can be as high as X10, and/or additional Frees Spins, with a maximum of +2. Multipliers increase all the wins on the round, including wins already multiplied X3 by a Wild. The top prize available on a single Mythic Maiden Touch spin is 600,000 coins. The game combines great variability in bet sizes with some substantial prize potential, along with a touch of Gothic horror.
