Medusa Slot review
Medusa is powered by NextGen Gaming is has a mythological theme as it’s based on the popular Medusa story. It has 5 reels and 25 paylines and can be played from 25p to £50 a spin. The question you need to ask yourself is do you dare enter Medusa’s lair for a terrifying ride to riches?
Medusa herself is the wild symbol and when you get 3, Medusa will turn reels 2, 3 and 4 into stone – 1 of the reels will crack and reveal an expanded wild that remains in place for 3 spins. These 3 spins come with a 3x multiplier too. This is known as the Turn to Stone Re-Spins feature.
Then you have the Once Bitten Bonus feature which is triggered when 3 or more Medusa logos appear anywhere on the reels. You will receive 10 free spins with all prizes doubled (2x multiplier). Look out for the Solder symbol on the middle reel as he can reward you with up to 4 Super Spins every time he appears.
The Super Spins will play out once the normal free spins end. You can get more free spins if you get 3 Medusa logo symbols during the free spins feature. Back to the Super Spins – all wins come with a massive 5x multiplier meaning all wins will be multiplied by 5.
Finally you have the Pegasus Bonus feature which is triggered when you get 3 Pegasus symbols anywhere on the reels. This is a classic ‘pick me’ feature where you pick a Pegasus to reveal a cash prize – you can win up to 50 times our stake here. Additionally, you can reveal ‘Pick Again’ or ‘Win All’ which will help you increase your cash prize total. What is even better about this feature is that you can trigger it during the free spins and Super Spins meaning that a respective 2x or 5x multiplier will be applied to your Pegasus Bonus winnings!
I find Medusa to be a medium to high variance video slot as wins are on the smaller side in the base game. I found the bigger wins to come from the Once Bitten Bonus feature – I’ve managed to win nearly 500 times my stake from the Super Spins alone (8 Super Spins).
The Pegasus Bonus feature has also been quite rewarding but more often than not gives you about 5-10 times your stake. Saying that, it’s a great video slot and one that I continue to come back to time and time again. Finally, you can try its sequel Medusa II which isn’t as good in my opinion but it like high variance, you should try Zeus by WMS which is an absolute must.
