Leander Games reinvents Greek mythology in this game inspired by the labyrinth to which the half-bull, half-human Minotaur was confined. But unlike the Minotaur’s labyrinth, this online slot game is easy to navigate and full of great features. The game has a return to player (RTP) of 95.89% with medium to high volatility. The game is fully compatible with mobile devices with no loss of features, making it a great game to take with you wherever you go.

Game Overview

Ways of Labyrinth has five reels with a great pay table and 1,024 ways to win. There are four high-paying symbols — the Labyrinth logo, the Minotaur, the snake-headed Medusa and the Hound of Hades or three-headed dog Cerberus — plus four lower-paying letters of the Greek alphabet — delta Δ, omega Ω, phi Φ and psi Ψ — all of which carry have the same value. The Minotaur and Cerberus frequently appear on the reels, adding mystery symbols as they go. The labyrinth symbol is the top payer. Although the game has no jackpots, the free spins game has a maximum 6,000x payout. This is a real gem of a game that regular gamers will love.

How To Play

Players need three or more matching symbols across the reels to win. A single scatter earns a respin, and, of course, the more scatters, the more free spins for a slots bonus.

Each of the symbols pays out at different values. Three to five labyrinth logos win 30x, 50x or 200x your stake. Five Medusas or Minotaurs pay out 40x, while five of the Hound of Hades allow you to win 20x your wager. Three, four or five of the Greek letters pay out 5x, 7x and 10x your bet, respectively.

This game rewards players with random free spins if you land one or more free spin icons, but only if you haven’t revealed enough special symbols to activate free spins during play. And one single scatter symbol gets you a free spin.

For such mean-looking characters, they’re actually pretty generous. Medusa is the most generous of all: she adds extra wilds to the game when she shows up. In the free spins bonus, which plays out the same as the base game, the scatters turn to wilds.


As has come to be expected from Leander, the graphics and colors of Ways of Labyrinth make it a pleasure to play. One of the primary rules of online slots, or really any casino games, is to find something which appeals to you and provides you with both fun and rewards; and the visual features of this game are almost rewarding enough. Exploding dogs, a quiet Medusa and a strong Minotaur, plus the authentic Greek letters, all hark back to the ancient Greek civilization. The soundtrack, to top it all off, is suitably dramatic to accompany the game.


Although it has no jackpot, this game is full of extra features to keep you engaged. The labyrinth game’s logo is the wild symbol and substitutes for all others with the exception of bonus symbols. Medusa, the Minotaur and Cerberus each have features of their own. 

  • The Medusa Wilds feature turns any Medusa symbol to a wild (which is better than being turned to stone) with multipliers of 1x or 2x, and these multiply each other. 
  • The Minotaur Mystery feature turns random symbols into mystery symbols. 
  • The Cerberus Infection feature sees the three-headed dog exploding and ‘infecting’ some symbols on the reels.

In the respin feature, if one free spin symbol lands on any reel, you may get a free respin. If you land a scatter, you get an additional respin and a further chance to catch another scatter which may activate the bonus. The interaction of the scatters and wilds makes this part of the game very exciting.

Bonuses and Jackpots

This game has no jackpot but a maximum payout of 6,000x in the free spins game is a good return. There are also lots of free spin bonuses where six or more of the free spin symbols anywhere on the reels activate the free spins bonus. Players can win up to 25 free spins if they land between 12 and 20 scatters, 15 free spins with nine to 11 scatters, 12 for seven or eight scatters and 10 free spins with six scatters.

When you’re playing in the free spins bonus games, if you don’t turn up enough free spin symbols to retrigger the free spins, every free symbol you have will transform into wilds.

Similar Games

Other popular slots from the Leander Games’ stable that you can play on online casino sites include Afterlife Inferno, based on Dante’s Inferno, and Tomb of Mirrors from ancient Egyptian mythology. In keeping with the Greek theme, the Medusa slot game features the snake-headed woman who could turn people to stone just by looking at them with her piercing eyes.
