As online slots fans will already know, Medusa was one of the famed Gorgons of Greek mythology with snakes for hair and the ability to turn people to stone with a glance; she’s also the theme of Medusa’s Golden Gaze, a releases from 2By2 Gaming with a generous number of free spins on offer.
Medusa’s Golden Gaze is a five reel slot with three rows and twenty five fixed paylines; Medusa stands to the left of those reels which spin against a backdrop of classical Greek buildings and ruined structures.
The five higher value symbols include Medusa, Perseus, a Siren, a shield, a helmet and a pot; 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
The game’s logo is wild and it will substitute for all other symbols to help form winning combos except for the temple bonus icon.
Base Game Modifiers
The following features occur randomly in the base game:
- Mystery Stack – all reels feature a stack of mystery symbols which will transform into any of the other symbols.
- Reel Copy – if a full stack of symbols fills reel one it will be copied to a maximum of four other reels.
This is triggered by landing three, four or five of the temple bonus symbols on an active payline for which you will receive 5, 6 or 8 free spins; however each different combo of scatters will earn spins so there’s a maximum of 200 available for the most fortunate.
Triggering ten or more spins will offer players the choice of the following three modes:
- Regular Free Spins – play the number of spins you’ve won.
- Easy Feature Free Spins – play 1/2 the number of awarded spins but with a better chance of the Reel Copy occuring.
- 50 Lines Free Spins – play 1/2 the number of awarded spins but with 50 paylines.
Triggering thirty or more spins will offer the modes listed above plus these two as well:
- Super Free Spins – play 1/3 the number of awarded spins with a 3x multiplier for any wins.
- Mega Free Spins – play 1/5 the number of awarded spins with a 5x multiplier for any wins.
Medusa has featured several online slots over the years and this one ranks up there with the best of them; it’s a colourful vision of Ancient Greece with a head full of snaky free spins on offer and the profitable Reel Copy feature.
