Hidden deep beneath the surface of the earth is a dungeon, one that keeps the hideous Minotaur away from humanity, but he can’t be kept locked up for long. Minotaur’s parents were behind the creation of the beast. Minos was gifted a white bull by Poseidon, but instead of sacrificing it, he kept it. Poseidon made his wife fall in love with the bull as punishment and the white bull and Minor’s wife mated to produce Minotaur. He feasts upon human flesh, that’s why he has been banished to the dungeons of Greece in this slot game.
The symbols on the reels include a Ariadne (son of Zeus), Pasiphae (his wife) ball of wool, emblem, Minotaur, helmet, shield and card values of J, Q, K and A. You are required to get at least 3 of a kind in order to trigger a win. Flames flicker brightly to the left and right of the slot machine, to light up the reels and an eerie echo can be heard when the symbols drop into place.
There is a maximum non-progressive jackpot of 10,000 up for grabs and you’ll need to bet 100.00 a spin to win this. Five of a kind of the Minos symbols will trigger the jackpot. Compared to other Endorphina slots that offer 100.00 stakes, the jackpot is relatively small. The Ice Pirates slot machine allows you to stake 100.00 and win up to 200,000.
You’ll find 10 symbols on the reels, but only 9 offer winning combinations as Minotaur is a wild with no cash value. Aside from Minos, all remaining symbols offer between 1,000 and 8,000 for landing 5 of a kind.
Minotaur is wild which can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 – he can replace all symbols on the reels to return winning combinations. When he decides to make an appearance, he will cover the entire reel and activate a free respin. Should you hit a winning combination via the respin, it will be awarded a random multiplier. Respins will continue for as long as winning combinations keep landing on the reels.
Risk is the gamble feature; any base game win will allow you to potentially double your dough. Enter the dark maze and face your destiny. Should you meet Ariadne, your money will be doubled, if you meet Minotaur, you lose everything and head back to the base game.
Like the sound of Minotaurus? Age of the Gods is a hugely popular online slot machine with a Greek mythology theme. Playtech are the creators of the 5-reel, 20-payline slot machine and have ploughed gods and goddesses such as Athena, Zeus and Hercules into the reels. Spin from as little as 0.20 as you try to trigger the mighty 10,000x multiplier jackpot on offer.
Worth the Battle?
Minotaurus slot game is a strange addition to the Endorphina slots portfolio, one that offers middle or the road wins for big stakes. We found the slot machine to be a medium to high variance with nothing but respins on offer. The Minotaur is the key to the free respins, but we were playing a good hour before we got a glimpse of him and then he didn’t return much more than our 100.00 stake. Minotaurus slot would suit slots players who don’t like too many features to distract them, but the base game wins fall few and far between on the reels, so you will need a bankroll that can take losses for long periods of time.
