What is “Medusa II” mobile slot about?

Medusa II is a sequel to NextGen Gaming’s popular mobile video slot game, Medusa. It features the same theme of Greek mythology, focussing on the myth of Medusa. Medusa II offers 5 reels and instead of a fixed number of paylines, this slot offers 243 ways to win. 25 lines must be played to cover all 243 ways to win with coin sizes ranging from $0.01 to $2.00. This means that a minimum spin cost will be $0.25 and a maximum bet can cost you up to $50.00. The non-progressive jackpot is available at 500 coins but a maximum win can net you 121,500 coins thanks to in-game features. These features include free spins, scatter/wild symbols and locked reel bonus games.

Look & Feel

The game looks good and the iPhone gameplay is pretty smooth. The symbol graphics have taken a more classic approach and this slot uses playing cards, whereas the prequel did not; it’s not to say that this is a bad thing as the other symbols have been upgraded and look more detailed than before. The game feels darker than the first Medusa and creates a more sinister atmosphere to play in. An auto-play option will help to keep boredom from setting in. The animations, once again, are top notch.

Game and Winnings

Medusa II has similar rules to any conventional slot, a wager of 25 coins must be played in order to cover all the 243 ways to win and each coin can have a increment of between $0.01 and $2.00. This means that the cost of a spin can range from $0.25 all the way to $50; the jackpot prize may be small but a maximum win of 121,500 coins can be won. The normal play pays can be seen in the in-game pay table and all bets are paid left to right with the largest combination paying out in each winning pay line.

Symbols include playing cards 10 through to ace, a gold bracelet, a stone soldier, a bow and arrow, a snake in a helmet, Medusa (stacked wild) and the Medusa II game logo (scatter).

Medusa acts as a stacked wild and can be substituted for any other logo (except scatters) to finish winning combos.
Matching 3+ scatters will give you 10 free spins in which each spin has 1 reel locked by the stacked wild. These free spins cannot be fully re-triggered but free spins can be won during this bonus round. Matching 5 scatters will win you 250x your wager, meaning you can win up to $12,500. These ‘locked spin bonus rounds’ can be activated randomly throughout normal play on reels 2, 3, 4 or 5 with identical symbols; this will help you gain 5 of a kind wins.
