Medusa Slot Overview
Medusa is a 5-reel, 3-row slot packed with a wide assortment of features and bonuses - including the Mini Reels feature - that are guaranteed to slay a gorgon and help transform the slot into one that’s packed full of thrills and excitement. At the same time, the game’s medium volatility, high RTP and maximum 30 paylines create a thoroughly exciting gameplay experience, one where you’re never too far away from a significant winning combination. With a betting range starting from $0.30 per spin, this slot is fitting for virtually every budget type.
The slot’s Greek Mythology-themed presentation is at the high standard you’d expect from a Pocket Games title. Cultivating the look and feel of an actual videogame, the acclaimed developer has created something truly special with this game. Their ambition is apparent from the outset. For starters, the look of the game is very unique in that the screen is divided into two parts. The top half shows a fully 3D rendered version of Medusa herself, before she was cursed by Athena. She lies down on top of the reels, and during the game, even performs different actions and animations depending on what’s going on in the game. The bottom half of the screen shows the actual reels, and these are covered in vines and grapes. The image shown in the background is Athena’s temple, and the overall feeling is one of peaceful relaxation and tranquillity: the lighting is soft and bright, and even the orchestral sounding musical score reflects this mood.
Let’s speak symbolically, then. The symbols are colorful, and elaborately detailed. At the higher end of the spectrum are Scatter Symbols encompassing all things you would expect to see: setting: Medusa, Poseidon, Lyre and Golden Bracelet (this last is set into the form of a snake and encrusted with a green jewel). Also present are the lower paying Playing Card symbols, A, K, Q, J and 10, all done in Greek-style lettering.
Highlights of the Game
Wild Symbol: Represented by golden vines twisting around a blue jewel, this symbol substitutes all other ones on the reels except the Scatter Symbol. Additionally, the Wild Symbol appears only on reels 2, 3 or 4.
Scatter Symbol: Represented by ??? framed in a golden laurel wreath with the word SCATTER tucked just under her chin, this symbol is the key to unlocking the Free Spins feature.
Medusa Key Features
Mini Reels Feature: At any point during the base game, 3 special reels appear just above the main set, the facade of which resembles the Parthenon. Each of the 3 reels spins to reveal either a Medusa or Poseidon symbol.
If there are 3 Medusa characters in the mini reels at the end of the spin, Medusa will kiss between 3 to 5 randomly selected symbols on the main reels (excluding the Wild symbol, Scatter symbol and Medusa symbol). These randomly selected symbols on the main reels will be transformed into Medusa symbols.
If there are 3 Poseidon characters in the mini reels at the end of the spin, the God of the Sea himself will appear. When this happens, all symbols in 2 or 3 randomly chosen main reels will be transformed into either Ace, King, Queen or Jack symbols.
Free Spins Feature: This feature is triggered when 3 or more Scatter Symbols appear on the reels. Here’s a full breakdown:
- 3 Scatter Symbols - 10 Free Spins
- 4 Scatter Symbols - 15 Free Spins
- 5 Scatter Symbols - 20 Free Spins
During any Free Spin while the reels are spinning, 3 Wild symbols may be added on reels 2, 3 and 4. A Special Meter appears during this feature as well, and any Medusa and/or Poseidon symbol that appears on the reels will be added to said meter. The prize for each milestone is shown above the Special Meter, and is awarded when a milestone is achieved in said meter. Let’s take a look at a full breakdown:
- First Milestone - 12 Medusa/Poseidon symbols are added to the Special Meter and 3 times the total bet is awarded to the player
- Second Milestone - 24 Medusa/Poseidon symbols are added to the Special Meter and 5 times the total bet is awarded to the player
- Third Milestone - 37 Medusa/Poseidon symbols are added to the Special Meter and 10 times the total bet is awarded to the player
- Third Milestone - 50 Medusa/Poseidon symbols are added to the Special Meter and 30 times the total bet is awarded to the player
