Legend of Hydra goes Exclusive at SIA Casino
by Glenn Baird - September 2, 2020
If you have played slots at SIA Casinos before then there is a good chance you will have played a Playtech slot. The software giants are one of the biggest names in the business and their influence is palpable in the lobby of SIA Casinos, with new and exclusive games filling their lobby.
One of the most recent inclusions in that exclusive category is the Greek inspired Legend of Hydra.
Legend of Hydra Slot
What you have here is a slot that meets the demands of such an epic tale. The reels are bigger than most, sitting at 4 symbols high and there are 6 of them, all of which adds up to a gargantuan 15,652 different winways.
Surrounding those reels are monstrous breaking waves that smash into the pillars of a classical Greek temple. The scene has been drawn from the perspective of someone or something looking up at the temple from those waves. Magical blue energy radiates from the temple that is surrounded higher up in shades of much calmer orange and brown. One look at this spectacle and you can tell that the designers at the UK based Ash, who are owned by Playtech, wanted to create a slot that had more to offer than just fruit.
The defining feature of the slot is the Power Zones. This is a Playtech special that adds a tittle excitement to all of your spins. Areas of the grid light up with fire and when more fire lands in those zones all the symbols that rest inside will transform into one identical symbol. And what is more special in a slot than more of the same?
You also get Free Spins that are triggered in the traditional 3 Bonus symbol manner. Those Free Spins can be retriggered and if you are very lucky you win an awful lot of them. But what makes those Free Spins really exciting is the final Mega Spin. All Power Zones lock in place as you land them, remaining on the reels until the feature ends. That final spin sees all those Zones fill up with one identical symbol for a final smash and grab that can see you leaving with your pockets bursting at the seems.
Add to this a set of random features and that all important Wild symbol and you are one piece away from a truly impressive slot. Playtech have a habit of ruining good games by slapping a brutal RTP on them. So many of the DC slots and the now defunct Marvel slots had everything you could ever dream of but came with a house edge that made them difficult to recommend. In this instance Playtech are kicking that trend out with the trash and giving Legend of Hydra a house edge of 3.44%, an amount that is offering better value for money than most slots out there today.

Above all else SIA Casino should be very pleased with the quality of this particular piece of exclusive content. The 9 out of 10 that we awarded it should be all the proof you need to know that we believe it is a slot worth checking out.
