Medusa II Slot Review
Playable from 25p to £50 a spin, the graphics and animations are better than the original but they aren’t as sharp as some of the newer slots released (e.g. by WMS Gaming). In some ways Medusa II still has its original charm which I quite like. In the base game, any 2, 3, 4 or 5 adjacent reels can lock and spin together showing the same symbol. This can lead to big wins!
There’s the Turned to Stone Stacked Wilds feature where a soldier may appear in the base game on a reel and attack Medusa herself. Medusa’s gaze can turn the solder to stone giving you a stack of wilds. However, the main attraction is the Medusa’s Locked Reels Free Games feature which is triggered by getting 3 or more Medusa II logo symbols anywhere on the reels.
You will begin with 10 free spins but every single free spin is a locked reels spin. This means that between 2 and 5 adjacent reels lock and spin together to display the same symbol. You can also retrigger more free spins (an extra 5). I’ve played the feature a few times now and won 40 times my stake maximum so far. I see Medusa II as a medium variance slot with decent wins in both the base game and free spins feature.
To be perfectly honest, I prefer the original Medusa slot – it can give you 4 Super Spins when the soldier symbol appears which subject wins to a generous 5x multiplier. I do like Medusa II but maybe I haven’t played it enough to appreciate it. I tend to win about 10-20 times my stake on average in the feature. If you want a higher variance game, I recommend 300 Shields which is also by NextGen Gaming.
