Medusa features a five reel twenty-five payline video slot with three distinct bonus features and a haunting Greek theme, Medusa has plenty to offer players both old and new.
How to play Medusa
Before players begin to dare enter’ Medusa’s realm, they should take a moment to adjust their game settings.
Use the buttons located beside “Bet” to increase or decrease line bets. If players do not wish to play all twenty-five paylines, they can adjust them using the “Lines” panel.
Pressing “Spin” will start to spin the reels and “Autoplay” can be used to spin the reels automatically for a select number of times.
Features of Medusa
Turn to Stone Re-Spins
Players should watch out for the Medusa icon, what acts as the game’s wild, as three of them can turn one of the three middle reels into stone. The reel that is chosen to be set to stone will then crack and reveal an expanding wild, remaining in place for a further three re-spins. Furthermore, these re-spins are subject to an x3 multiplier.
Once Bitten Bonus
Players will particularly like the Once Bitten Bonus round that can be triggered by obtaining three or more Medusa logo icons in view. Players are awarded ten free spins with an x2 multiplier, where they can also activate an additional ten free spins by obtaining three Medusa logo icons during the round.
The Soldier icon on the middle reel is vital as this will give players up to four Super Spins each time it appears. After the regular free spins play out, the Super Spins start – they are all subject to a whopping x5 multiplier - needless to say, this is where the big wins will come.
Lastly, there’s the Pegasus Bonus round that players can activate by collecting three Pegasus icons anywhere in view. Known as a classic ‘Pick Me’ round where players must choose a Pegasus icon to reveal their prize.
Players can win up to 50 times their staked bet here plus ‘Pick Again’ and ‘Win All’ prizes too. The Pegasus Bonus round is the most lucrative as players can enter it during the Once Bitten Bonus round and the Super Spins – if this occurs, winnings will be subject to the respective x2 or x5 multipliers.
So there it is, Medusa is an easy to start game with several bonus features including free spins and wild multipliers. Medusa has a high hit ratio, so should please every type of gamer.
