The original Iron Maiden was history’s most vicious torture device. A coffin-like enclosure, large enough to house a human being, was kitted out on the inside with metal spikes. The unlucky victim placed inside the Iron Maiden would be slowly impaled by the spikes, resulting in a cruel and gruesome death. In fact, the device is so unthinkably fiendish, that it was once considered to be a figment of someone’s imagination, rather than a real object in medieval history.
The device is primarily associated with death, torture and even mystical crossings over into the afterlife. A school of thought believing in the supernatural powers of the Iron Maiden has since emerged. Scholars believe the ancient device to be more than a mere torturing tool, but rather a way to enter the realm of the undead.
Mythic Maiden is based on this particular school of thought, and features 5 reels and 30 paylines. Special features include multipliers and a Free Spins Bonus Game.
As is the case with most of this developer’s online video slots, the game is supported by and able to run on Windows, Mac and Linux, as well as all major mobile device operating systems.
Mythic Maiden Symbols
Symbols include all things evil, creepy and scary – a skeleton hand clutching a book, a Zombie-like skull, a skull presumed to be that of a Baboon, a gigantic spider and a ominous looking red chest.
The Zombie skill is the highest paying symbol – paying out at 2 000 credits for 5 in a row. The skull of the Baboon pays out at 1 000 credits for 5 matching symbols on an active payline, and the book, spider and red chest follow suit at 500, 200 and 150 credits respectively.
Playing card symbols are creatively depicted as burning home-made candles. These pay out at between 70 and 125 credits for a winning combination of 5.
Card symbols include the Ace, King, Queen, Jack and the Number 10 card.
