Furthermore, Medusa comes with superb graphics and Medusa herself who can expand to cover the entire reels and thus providing you with some extra winning chances. The game also comes with cascading reels, Free Spins with increasing multipliers, Snake Strike feature, as well as the surprise at the end of the Bonus round. The players can experience this powerful slot machine from as little as 25p per spin and try and reach that max winning potential of 50,000x your total stake!
Standard Megaways Features With Some Added Extras
Featuring Megaways game mechanics, Medusa comes with 6 reels and the added extra reel on the top. Reels 1 and 6 can feature up to 7 symbols, while the middle ones can hold up to 6 symbols per spin. On each, spin there is a different number of rows or symbols on the reels which decides the number of ways to win on each spin. The role of the extra reel on the top is to add symbols to the reels below it, that is, reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. What is also characteristic of this mechanics is the reactions, that is, cascading reels. This means that on each win, the symbols involved in a win will disappear, others will fall down, and new ones will drop down and fill in the remainder of the positions. This continues as long as you hit new wins on each reaction. Practically, what you get are mini ‘re-spins’ on each winning spin. This keeps the action flowing and balancing up your budget along the way.
What you’ll encounter on the reels are the playing card symbols with lower payouts and the theme-related symbols such as sandals, snake pendants, rings, soldiers in a battle, and the most lucrative of all, the Pegasus that will award up to 30x your total stake. Of course, what is Medusa slot machine without Medusa herself appearing on the reels? She acts as a wild so her role is to substitute all other symbols on the reels (except the scatter and special soldier symbol in the Free Spins) and enhance your wins. But she is also the part of the Medusa’s Gaze Feature. Mainly, whenever she appears on the top reel she may expand and cover the entire reel below it providing you with a fully wild reel. And if she is a part of the reaction she will stay in position. This leads to enhanced opportunities for hitting some more wins. This is all for the base game, but even more action happens in the Free Spins Bonus round where you get extra wilds and scatters for deeper thrills.
Free Spins Bonus Round and Snake Strike Feature
The scatter symbol represented by the Medusa logo icon is the key to entering the Free Spins Bonus round (there’s also the option of buying the Free Spins Feature for 100x your total stake price). Land three scatters anywhere on the reels to trigger the round and get 10 free spins. Any additional scatter will award 5 extra free spins for the round. Now, once you enter the Bonus mode, you will start with a x2 multiplier that will increase with each cascading win in the round. There’s no limit on the multipliers so as long as you hit those reactions, the multiplier will increase and boost up your wins along the way.
The above-mentioned soldier appears in the Free Spins Bonus and only on the top extra reel. Now, pay attention to the snakes that also appear next to the reels as these are crucial to the special Snake Strike feature. Mainly, whenever the soldier appears on the extra reel, the snakes will attack him. If the soldier gets attacked by the snake from the left, he will turn into wild, while the right snake will turn him into a scatter symbol. This way, you get extra wilds or scatters on the reels. Note that Medusa’s Gaze Feature is active in the Free Spins round as well, meaning that when that soldier becomes wild it will trigger the Medusa’s Gaze and expand below. Finally, more scatters during the round will award additional free spins and prolong the whole action on the reels.
Once you finish the Bonus round, the Temptation Feature will appear. And its name explains it all. You will get offered to keep all the wins you’ve won in the Free Spins or forfeit them and play the round once again with the hope of winning more. This is a great chance for those unlucky rounds as you get another chance. Also, if you like to gamble, then this may bring some more thrills to the game.
