What is “Medusa” mobile slot about?
Medusa is a NextGen Gaming mobile slot app created with a theme based on Greek mythology. The slot houses 5 reels and offers 25 paylines to play with. A jackpot prize can see you win 5,000 coins. A maximum of 1 coin can be played for each of the 25 paylines and exists as an increment of $0.01 as a minimum and $2.00 as a maximum; this means a spin can cost you $0.01, or up to $50.00 if you’re feeling risky. The game hosts various other features such as free spins, bonus games, scatters and wilds.
No downloadable app is required to play as the slot uses HTML5 and so is available on smartphones/tablets that run iOS/Android and can access an internet browser.
Look & Feel
The background music sounds quite menacing which adds to a sinister Greek mythological feel. The game graphics are quite detailed with the symbols not including playing cards. The game animations are good and winning combinations will cause animations to activate. The reels spin without glitches and the reel is housed in an ancient Greek building to add authenticity to the gameplay. A heroic jingle will play after a winning combination is obtained which keeps the game feeling fresh.
Game and Winnings
A bet of 1 coin per line onto 1-25 lines can be played; it is suggested that 25 lines should be played to maximise your chances of winning. Each coin can have a denomination of between $0.01 and $2.00, allowing for a spin to cost you from $0.01 to $50.00. A jackpot prize of 5,000 coins is available and the other pay outs can be viewed in the game’s pay table.
The symbols include earrings, a spear’s tip, a building, a bunch of grapes, a snake, a vase, Pegasus (bonus), a soldier (bonus), sandals, stone soldiers, a coin, Medusa (wild) and the Medusa game logo (scatter).
Medusa is wild and will substitute for any symbol to complete a winning payline – this excludes scatters and bonus symbols. Matching 3 Medusa symbols will cause one of reels 2, 3 or 4 to become an expanding wild and give you 3 free spins which pay 3x.
Matching 3 Pegasus symbols will activate the ‘Pick me’ bonus game in which you can pick one of the Pegasus symbols that have appeared; this will allow you to potentially get a 50x your initial bet or a ‘win all’ chance.
Matching 3+ scatters will give you 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier; within this free spin bonus round; if a soldier appears on reel 3, you will win 3 super spins which give you a 5x multiplier which are played after your 10 normal free spins. Free spins can be re-triggered.
