Launched back in 2012 by NextGen Gaming, Medusa slot machine is an online video slot that takes you on an epic journey to Ancient Greece.
With crisp visuals and a bit terrifying sound effects including thunders and ominous snake hissing, the game will provide you with a thrilling gaming experience during which you will benefit from a variety of bonus features.
Medusa slot is based on the myth about a pretty woman turned into a monster and uses 5 reels and 25 adjustable pay lines and benefits from respins with tripled payouts and free spins during which your winnings can get increased by even 5x!
You are probably familiar with the story of Medusa boasting about her beauty until the goddess Athena turned her into the monster with hissing snakes replacing her hair and glowing green eyes that turn anyone who looks at them into stone.
NextGen dedicated the 2012 release to Medusa who stands for Wild and instead of turning you into stone, helps you win bigger payouts. All the symbols populating the reels are closely related to the theme of the game with temples, warriors, snakes and golden coins constituting the higher ends of the paytable. In the lower ends, you will find earrings, winged sandals, traditional jugs, grapes and spears. The most lucrative symbol is the temple awarding 5,000 coins for a five of a kind combination.
Before you set the reels in motion, make sure to activate the number of pay lines you prefer and set your bet. A total bet per spin can be anywhere between £0.25 and £125, which is suitable for all kinds of players. Push the Spin button or activate up to 100 consecutive spins. To win a prize you are required to align at least 2 or 3 matching symbols on an active line left to right. Whenever you score a win, you can use the Gamble feature and double or quadruple your payouts by guessing the colour or suit of a mystery card.
Medusa Wild will complete your winning combos by replacing all regular symbols. When 3 Wilds appear, the Turned to Stone Respins feature is activated. The reels 2, 3 and 4 go fully Wild during 3 respins with all payouts from them tripled. Then you have the Once Bitten Bonus triggered by 3 or more Scatters represented as the game’s logo. The game awards 10 free spins with all payouts doubled. Scatter also pays on its own, up to 250x your bet.
During free games, you will notice the soldier symbol appearing on the reels. Whenever it appears, you will win one super spin. These spins are played when the regular free spins are over and all payouts from them are multiplied by 5. That’s not all because the Medusa slot is also home to the Pegasus symbol awarding up to 50x your bet. To unlock the pick and win the game you have to land 3 Pegasus symbols on the reels. The maximum possible payout in the base game is 125,000 coins and you can even more during free or super spins.
