## Bonuses and Features
Maze Escape comes with a unique layout for a megaways slot so let’s take a look at what weird and wonderful features they have added to the slot.
### Labyrinth Free Spins
To trigger the free spins round you are required to land 3 bonus symbols which are represented by a golden maze coin. Once the feature is active you will be awarded 10 spins.
For every winning spin during the free spins, triggers the Shifting Maze Avalanche. If you happen to trigger one of the blockers you will be awarded additional multipliers or spins.
### Shifting Maze Avalanches
You will notice the middle position on the first reel is boarded with a shiny golden edge. This is because it is a special position. By landing a winning symbol in this position will trigger the Shifting Maze Avalanche feature.
Before the Avalanche shakes the reels, all the reels move on position to the left. Once the Avalanche comes to a stop, whichever symbol is present in the special left-most middle space on the reel will become a Path Symbol. This means that any other symbol on which is the same will become locked into the centre to create a path.
For every reel shift that occurs, you will unlock 2 random Blocker symbols.
### Maze Blockers
There are two different Maze Blockers.
- Guidance of Athena.
If you unlock an Athena Blocker during an avalanche then you will trigger the Guidance of Athena feature. The symbol is represented by a roman warrior helmet outlined in blue.
The Guidance of Athena will add up to four Path symbols to the reels at random before the symbols fall off the reels.
- Minotaur Wild Feature
Unlocking the Minotaur Blocker will trigger the Minotaur Wild Feature which is illustrated by a red outlined bull. Once activated the symbol will expand to cover the entire reel and a random multiplier between x1 to 7x will be applied.
## Our Thoughts
Maze Escape was a pleasant slot to review and a surprise. With a title like “Maze Escape,” I was more expecting an “Alice and Wonderland” type slot not Greek Mythology.
It is clear to say that Fantasma did a fine job with the graphics and design of the slot game. The background music adds to the effect and the story of the Maze Escape, although it could become a little irritating if you stick around playing the slot for too long.
The layout of Maze Escape is also rather unique for a megaways slot, which was a pleasant surprise. If you are interested in Greek Mythology and fantasy theme then Maze Escape is a slot worth giving a spin.
