Most of you will have heard this name before but if not, this fun and fantastical video slot is inspired by the mythological monster, Medusa, who had snakes for hair and could turn you to stone with just one glance. Fortunately for you, she only acts as inspiration for the theme of this slot and hopefully the Greek gods will help guide you on your way to glory.
As a Megaways™ slot, this game features 6 reels with varying size symbols on each reel, as well as a dynamic top row that slides across with each spin. The Megaways™ mechanic, created by Australian developers, Big Time Gaming, not only makes this a highly detailed and dynamic game but also means that there are a whopping 11,7649 paylines on offer.
In terms of visuals, everything is centred around ancient Greece as you might expect, from the Greek temple and pillars that frame the board, to the standard card symbols that fill the reels themselves. You have plenty more historical and mythological themed symbols to enjoy, whether they be beautiful rings, golden broaches or the iconic Greek hoplite soldiers, or something more magical like Hermes’ winged sandals or a Pegasus, the most valuable symbol in the game.
The standard Medusa Megaways™ RTP is a healthy 96% and with the addition of the Buy Pass Feature, this increases to just shy of 98%. With that kind of ratio and spins from as little as 25p, this slot is sure to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up – especially if they happen to be snakes like the serpent-headed beast herself!
With most winning combinations, you need to match 3 symbols, however, in some instances, you need even less. For instance, you only need to match 2 Pegasus symbols to make a winning combo and you only need 1 wild symbol to trigger the Medusa’s Gaze feature – but we’ll get on to that in more depth later.
Your main control wheel is on the right-hand side of the screen and includes your spin and autoplay buttons, as well as the adjusters for your bet value and all other advanced settings.
Other than that, the only things you need to take note of is your multiplier, displayed in the top left-hand corner. As well as the number of spins you have used/have left from each stake, which is displayed in the opposite right-hand corner.
As if the preposterous amount of paylines weren’t enough, the Medusa Megaways slot machine also has a scintillating selection of bonuses for you to make this a truly Greek epic of a tale. So, here is a quick run-down of them all and how they work.
Your wildcard symbol for this game is, unsurprisingly, the Gorgon goddess Medusa herself. This is essentially a substitute symbol and can only be found on the extra reel (the top dynamic row of the board). If you happen to land on this symbol, not only will you witness her snake-eyed stare but she will also emerge from the reels to replace all other symbols on that reel, barring scatters.
Like many other slots, you can earn 10 free spins by matching 3 or more scatter symbols, represented by the Medusa logo. However, another unique addition to the game is the Buy Pass feature, which allows you to trigger the free spins bonus for 75x the value of your stake. During this round, your first successful spin is doubled, and each consecutive winning combination will increase your multiplier by one.
This one might spell danger for the soldiers, but it could spell the spoils for you. During this feature, 2 snakes slither their way out from behind the extra reel and threaten to bite any soldier present on the board. If bitten by the snake on the left, they will turn into a wild: bitten by the right and they turn into a scatter.
Now, this is a game-changer. Medusa was known to enchant unsuspecting persons with her mystifying gaze before turning them into stone. In a similar fashion, this slot offers you the chance to either stick win your wins or forfeit them to play the bonus round again, only this time you could rack up a larger multiplier and more free spins to keep the run going. This one is not for the feint-hearted, so tread carefully.
