NextGen has revived one of the creepiest myths from Greek Mythology, the myth about Medusa, the female gorgon with venomous serpents instead of a hair, with scary little wings.
Due to the uniqueness of the theme, Medusa Slot - NextGen’s release has become a hit as soon as it was released, and due to players’ demand, the developer has recently released a sequel with improved graphics and payout potentials. But see why the original Medusa slot has gotten players’ attention so much by reading our detailed review.
A creepy soundtrack welcomes you into the Medusa Slot. This may seem strange to you at this point because as you take a look at the reels you see usual Ancient Greek symbols, but wait until the special features kick in. As you load the reels, you will see a Greek temple, a coin with Medusa's face on it, earrings, sandals, a broken spear, Ancient Greek pottery, grapes, a serpent, soldiers in a battle, Pegasus and a gladiator in Medusa Slot.
Now, what will initially give you a good scare is the Medusa symbol, because the gorgon's eyes look snake-like, light green with a yellowish spark. She really looks like she's about to attack you, as a snake would. But then, you'll be glad to see that there are no playing-card symbols used for the lowest-paying ones. NextGen stayed true to the theme, and that’s a major plus.
One Bite Could be Fatal
The Wild in this video slot is, naturally, Medusa. She can only appear on the middle reels but can replace for all symbols except for the Pegasus and the Scattered Logo symbols whenever she appears on the reels. When you see 3 Medusa symbols, you should know that you’ve triggered 3 Turned to Stone Re-Spins.
During the Re-Spins, the middle reels become an Expanded Wild and you see the scariest version of the Medusa. She won’t give you payouts for winning combos with her own symbol, as the Scatter does. The Scatters pays in any way, and the Scatter wins are multiplied by the total stake.
The Pegasus Bonus symbol assumes the role of a Scatter since it is the symbol that will help you trigger the Pegasus Bonus game. Whenever you see 3 Pegasus Bonus symbol appearing, you should know that you’ve triggered the Pegasus Bonus game. It is a picking game where you need to pick one Pegasus to see what prize you have won.
There are up to 50x the stake prizes to be won, and the feature is retriggerable. You can opt to Pick Again or Win All. The feature can be triggered during the Free Spins and Super Spins and if you trigger it then, your wins will be multiplied by 2 or 5, respectively.
3 or more Scattered Logo symbols award 10 Free Spins with all prizes doubled. This is when you can see the Soldier symbol appearing on the 3rd reel, as the Once Bitten Bonus gets activated. Whenever you see the Soldier symbol appear, you should know that you’ve started collecting Super Spins, 3 Free Spins each time it appears.
Depending on the number of Soldiers you land, you will get to play the Super Spins after the Free Spins finish (but Free Spins can also be retriggered). Your wins during the Super Spins are multiplied by 5. If during the Super Spins you land 3 Scattered Logos, you retrigger the Super Spins.
You’ve Made It
There are 25 paylines in this slot machine, for which you can bet as little as 0.01 and as much as 62.50, if you bet only 0.01 per one payline, or if you bet 2.50 per 25 paylines. The RTP the game has is 95.41%.
Payout-wise, you get 15,625 credits for a 5-of-a-kind win with Scatters in one spin, added to your payline wins. You get 12,500 credits for a winning combo with 5 highest-paying Temple symbols for a bet with the highest coin value.
But, with all the Multipliers this big win video slot has to offer, your total winnings can go up the roof.
