The design in Medusa’s Golden Gaze is done comic book style and works well. The reels are set against within marble columns and feature A to 10 royal values, golden bracelets, helmets and shields as well as a mermaid and a warrior. Medusa is the top paying standard symbol, awarding 8 times your total stake if you land 5 on a line.

The logo symbol is the wild. It replaces everything bar the scatter and pays up to 20 times your stake per payline. Medusa’s Golden Gaze comes with 3 extras:

Mystery feature - each reel contains a stack of mystery symbols. These can be replaced by any symbol including the wild and bonus whenever they hit.

Reel Copy feature - fill a reel with the same stacked symbol to trigger this extra. The stacked symbol will duplicate on at least 1 and possible more reels. A new payout calculation is then made with the stacked symbols in position.

Medusa’s Golden Gaze is all about the Free Spin Bonus feature which is played by landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters – these award 5, 6 or 8 free spins. More scatters on that triggering spin mean more free spins. The maximum possible allocation is 200 free spins. If you receive 10 or more free spins, you’ll be offered 3 options:

  • Regular Free Spins - play the spins as awarded
  • 50 Lines Free Spins – play half the number of free spins on a 50 payline machine and half the free spins on the normal reel set
  • Easy Feature Free Spins – play half the number of free spins but trigger the Reel Copy feature more regularly

With 30 or more free spins, you’ll get the 3 picks above as well as 2 other possibilities. They are:

  • Super Free Spins – play a 3rd of free spins but get a 3x multiplier on all wins
  • Mega Free Spins – play a 5th of free spins but get a 5x multiplier on all wins

The ancient Greek theme remains hugely popular and Medusa’s Golden Gaze is another solid addition to the genre. It’s a well put together slot that combines impressive imagery with a decent range of extras. I quite like the fact you can choose within the Free Spins Bonus feature – I would always opt for the Mega Free Spins due to the 5x multiplier. This can result in wins of 2,500 times your stake on every free spin. If you’re a fan of slot with the Classical-era theme, then you’ll want to get seduced by Medusa’s Golden Gaze. I also recommend you try Medusa II Jackpots from NextGen Gaming which is excellent.
