Medusa is powered by Blueprint Gaming and comes with 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 paylines (fixed). Available to play from 10p to £20 a spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, this Greek mythology inspired offering is simple and comes with Medusa symbols that replaces all symbols and transforms up to 2 symbols wild.
Set within an ancient Greek temple, the reels are separated by pillars. With an eerie soundtrack, visually Medusa is rather good. Symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals – you’ll also see temples, vases, swords and warrior helmets. The latter is the most lucrative with 3, 4 or 5 on a payline giving you 5, 25 or 100 times your stake respectively.
The 3 snake heads symbol is the wild – substituting for all symbols bar the scatter, 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline will give you 1, 10, 50 or 200 times your stake. The scatter is Medusa naturally – when she appears on reel 3, the Medusa feature will be triggered.
The Medusa symbol then substitutes for all symbols – it can also select up to 2 other symbols when then become wild symbols. This can lead to many wilds being on the reels at 1 time.
That’s about it for Medusa – there are no free spins or other extras. Whilst Medusa is simple, it’s in the medium to high range variance wise with potential payouts of 2,000 times your stake if you manage to fill the reels with snake heads wilds.
Medusa, as mentioned, is a simple slot – it’s all about the wilds where the bigger wins will come from. Blueprint Gaming do release plenty of stripped back slots like Grizzly Gold and Journey of the Gods – as well as feature-rich titles (like Ted). If you like the theme, NextGen Gaming’s Medusa MegaWays is recommended as to is Age of the Gods: Medusa & Monsters from Playtech.
