NOTE: Hades River of Souls is right now only exclusively available at Mr Green Casino.
Time to be bold and jump into this river to swim with souls – chances are you’ll get more than just two gold coins in this Hades River of Souls slot.
This casino slot is about the Greek Underworld. It’s meant to look a little creepy, and it certainly achieves it. What you have is 5×3 reels with 10 paylines that pay both from left to right and right to left.
Making the minimum bet of this Hades River of Souls slot 0.20 a spin, rather than 0.10, but trust us, they have their reasons. Just like they have their reasons for giving you a literal river of souls above the reels, littered with wilds and bonus symbols.
It’s actually a clever twist on your fairly generic Realm of Poseidon Slot or yet another Zeus 1000 slot machine. But, you do have to be brave, as this journey will take a little patience and more than a couple of coins.
The paytable on the symbols is a little on the low side, especially with the low paying Urn symbols. The high paying Hades and Persephone a little less, but still not striking.
That’s because this Hades River of Souls slot wants to give you lots of wins – every win creates an explosion, with more symbols tumbling down from above.
Except it’s not just symbols. It’s the wilds and scatters that were floating in that river of souls we mentioned. You always know what your chances are to catch special bonuses, and that’s more than a little thrilling. But you do need more than one avalanche to get multiple wilds, which is why the paytable starts low.
With every 3 wilds you clear with a win, you increase the multiplier by 1x in the base game, but by 2x in the free spins. And those multipliers are everything.
In the base game, the multiplier help pass the time, but getting more than 2x is as hard as getting past that three-headed dog.
But in the Hades River of Souls slot free spins, things heat up because you have more wilds swimming in that river above, and the multiplier doesn’t reset on a loss. It just keeps on climbing for as long as you keep getting wins with those wild symbols.
We’ve gotten wins of over 120x our bet, so we know there is potential. But getting the free spins can feel like a long journey down a dark soulless river, before giving you just a glimpse of the crown you’re trying to steal.
This Fantasma game is not without its frustration, but sometimes it’s not about the end goal, but the experience, that makes things fun. And this Hades River of Souls slot is fun.
Certainly better than the Desert Shark slot, also by Fantasma, so for us, this is a definite improvement.

Avalanching Wins and Special Symbols: Any win triggers the avalanching reels where all winning combinations payout and then disappears with new symbols falling down from above. The reels above the game hold special symbols, so you always know if you are going to catch wilds or either of the two bonus symbols.
Win Both Ways: You can win on a payline when it lands from left to right or right to left of the reels. 5 of a kind win will be paid out from both ways.
Wilds and Multipliers: The wild golden coin is the wild symbol and is the highest paid symbol on the paytable. However, it also can be used to replace any other symbol on the reels and generally only shows up after an avalanche.
You start the game with a 1x multiplier. Every 3 wild symbols that disappear in an avalanche will increase the Souls' multiplier by 1 in the base game, or by 2 in the free spins. When the avalanche end, the total win is multiplied by the current wild souls multipliers.
Skull of Charon Feature: One or more Skull of Charon symbol appearing on the reel activates this feature. Once the winning combination is finished, each skull of Charon symbol removes itself and 2-10 random regular symbols from the reels. This triggers another avalanche.
Hades Free Spins: 3 Bonus Hades Scepters on the reels will activate 10 free spins where the top 3 rows will now have more special symbols to dropdown. Any extra scatter will add +5 spins. The wilds will now add +2 multipliers when 3 or more wilds disappear in an avalanche. Better yet, those multipliers will not go back down to zero on a non-win, so will just keep increasing.
The Hades River of Souls slot took it's time to get us onboard Charon's boat. Who wants to head down to the underworld? Brave heroes that's who.
Because if you go head to head with the Lord of the Dead, you may end up on a wild ride, especially if you can hit the free spin bonus and those bigger multipliers.
This is definitely a slow burner of a slot, but there is something exciting about knowing all special features you can catch before any avalanching reels trigger.
We liked it, but if you want something with a faster pace, you may want to check out the Rise of Maya slot or the Robin Hood's Wild Forest slot game.
