We’ve started to notice a few Medusa-themed online slots recently; the snake-haired creature from Greek mythology has made appearances in various Greek god-related slots but she also carries enough weight to have her own games such as Microgaming’s Revenge of Medusa and Playtech’s arcade slot Medusa’s Gaze. This is Nextgen Gaming’s addition to the genre and it may be the best of the bunch.
Medusa has five reels, twenty five paylines and more bonus features than you can shake a stick at; dark clouds gather in the background over the temples of Olympus and the symbols are a veritable smorgasbord of Greek-themed items. They include a spear, grapes, an amphora, winged shoes (of Pegasus), a snake, a bronze coin and a temple.
Lots of bonuses mean lots of bonus symbols and there’s a Medusa scatter, a soldier, Pegasus and of course Medusa herself who is the wild.
Turned To Stone Respins
This is where Medusa comes in handy and uses her legendary ability to turn things to stone just by looking at them; land three of her on reels two, three and four and you’ll get three free spins with an expanded wild frozen on one of those three reels. All prizes landed will be tripled.
Once Bitten Bonus
Landing three of the Medusa logo scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger ten free spins and during this feature any wins you land will be doubled. However the soldier super spins also come into play here and you can trigger that particular feature by landing the soldier on reel three.
Each soldier you land will award you one spin which will be spun when the original ten are finished. Wins landed during the super spins will be multiplied by five, which is handy.
There Pegasus symbols anywhere on the reels will start this mini-game; all you need to do is pick one of the symbols for an instant cash prize. Pegasus can also reveal a ‘Win All’ message or invite you to make a second pick.
If you didn’t like gambling you would’t be reading this article and if you’d like a little more risk you can wager your most recent win by clicking the ‘Gamble’ button below the reels. There’s now a standard playing card prediction game where choosing the correct colour will double you money and the correct suit will quadruple it.
Medusa Online Slot Playing Tips
If you prefer playing with small stakes and fewer paylines, the bonus features will still be triggered as the bonus symbols are all scatters. Of course your wins are proportional to your stake so bear that in mind.
Slots fans who appreciate their bonus features will love this slot; add in some superb graphics and an appropriately dramatic soundtrack and you have probably the best Medusa-themed slot out there.
