Medusa is a high quality slot game produced by NextGen Gaming. As one of the smaller game developers on the market, NextGen leases their games to online casinos and use the major casino software platforms to host their games.
The theme of this game is all about Greek Mythology and the Gorgon monster named Medusa. In this game, players join Perseus and Pegasus in Ancient Greece as they search to destroy the Gorgon herself.
The backdrop of the game is the Gorgon monsters lair where all the action takes place. The graphics, animation and sound effects are of top notch and help to create a feeling of adventure.
A Tale of Greek Mythology
The slot machine in Medusa is based on the standard 5-reel 25 payline slot. The game features wild symbols, scatter symbols, multipliers, free spins and a 5000 coin jackpot prize. On the reels players will find all the classic images that make up the mythological tale of Perseus slaying the gorgon monster with snakes on her head.
Some of the symbols players will come across include, Perseus’s winged sandals, a snake, a broken arrow, a group of soldiers, a bunch of grapes and a jug of wine.
Wild Medusa Symbol
The Wild symbol in this game is Medusa herself. The wild symbol in this game can substitute for any other standard symbol to create a winning payline with the exception of the scatter and bonus symbols.
The wild symbol is also the key to triggering the “Turn to Stone Respins” Feature. To trigger this bonus feature, players must land 3 or more wild symbols anywhere on the reels. When this happens, reels 2, 3 and 4 will turn to stone. One of the reels will crack and become an expanded wild that remains in place for 3 spins with a 3x multiplier.
Once Bitten Bonus Feature
The scatter symbol in Medusa is the game logo and is also the key to triggering the “Once Bitten Bonus” feature. To trigger the free spin bonus round, players must land 3 or more game logo scatter symbols anywhere on the reels.
Once triggered, players will instantly be rewarded with 10 free spins with a 2 x multiplier. During the free spin round if the soldier appears on the reels, players can collect super spins. The great thing about the super spins is that during any super spin winning combination, the win prize is multiplied by 5. This is by far one of the most interesting real money slots Canada and other regions currently have on offer for players.
The final bonus symbol in the Medusa slot game is the Pegasus symbol. This symbol is the key to accessing the “Pegasus bonus”. To trigger this bonus round, players must land 3 or more Pegasus symbols anywhere on the reels.
Once triggered players are taken to a pick a Pegasus game where players can win instant coin prizes or up to 50 x their bet. In addition to the coin prize players can be awarded a “Pick again” or “Win all” prize to boost their winnings.
The best part about the Pegasus bonus is that it can be retriggered within the game or within the “Once Bitten Bonus feature and the free spin round.
