Medusa Slot Review

We’re sure you’ve heard about Greek mythology. You might have seen movies where the legends came to life. Now you can experience the tale of Medusa, a woman with hair made of snakes. Look at them and you’ll turn to stone so be careful when spinning those reels, don’t let Medusa stare into your eyes.

Kicking things off with the game’s visuals, the background consists of a static image including a green field and a couple of Greek ancient temples. The reels are encased in what appears to be stone columns, similar to those found in the nearby temples. The game’s logo is located right above the reels in big letters.

As for the mechanics, the reels spin altogether and stop individually in consecutive order. Winning symbols become animated and trigger a short audio effect.

Make sure to check out NetEnt’s Divine Fortune slot which also features an ancient Greece theme and has one of the largest potential payouts you can get when playing on online slots. For now, though, let’s see how you can play Medusa.

How to Play Medusa

The game has 3 rows and 5 reels with 25 fixed paylines. The only visible controls on the main screen are the spin and bet size buttons located at the right of the reels. If you want to take a look at the paytable, enable the auto spin function, or further customize your gameplay experience then you should enter the in-game menu which is accessible from a separate button located at the left of the reels.

Bets start at $0.25 and are capped at $62.50.

Medusa is a medium volatility slot so you can expect to win varying amounts regularly. That said, the maximum win is 5,000x the bet size which is pretty good for a slot with such low bet size limits.

The game consists of 5 low paying and 4 high paying symbols. The first come in the form of a spearhead, grapes, a ceramic vase, Herme’s winged boots, and a saddle’s foot holders. The most rewarding symbols are a snake, a Medusa coin, a battle scene, and a Greek temple.

The slot’s special symbols are:

  • Wild – The slot’s wild symbol is an image of Medusa’s head. It can appear on reels 2, 3, and 4. It substitutes for all symbols except the scatter and Pegasus symbols.
  • Scatter – Getting 3 of these symbol will trigger the Once Bitten bonus.
  • Pegasus – It awards the Pegasus Bonus when it appears on reels 2, 3, and 4.
  • Soldier – This symbol can only appear during the Once Bitten bonus. It appears on reel 3.

Medusa Features

This NextGen Gaming slot is equipped with 3 bonus features. Let’s check them out!

Turned to Stone Re-Spins

This feature is activated when the player lands 3 Medusa wild symbols. He is awarded 3 re-spins with all prizes tripled. The re-spins can’t be retriggered during the feature nor can you trigger the Once Bitten and Pegasus bonuses.

Turned to Stone Re-Spins
Once Bitten Bonus

Activating this feature awards the player 10 free games with all the prizes doubled. During the free spins, the soldier symbol will award up to 3 super spins every time he appears.

The super spins will be played after the normal free games and they will have a 5x win multiplier. They can be retriggered during the super spins and the number of accumulated super spins is awarded again.

Similar to this, the free games can be retriggered as well and award the player 10 additional free spins. Unfortunately, the Turned to Stone Re-Spins feature can’t be triggered during the free or the super spins.

Pegasus Bonus

This feature consists of a mini-game where the player has to pick a prize that reveals a bet multiplier. It can also contain a “pick again” or “win all” prize. If the feature is activated during the free games or the super spins, a 2x or 5x win multiplier is applied respectively.
