Based on the Snake-Haired Gorgon
To look at, Myth of Medusa Gold has an epic feel to it – based on the snake-haired gorgon, you’ll see ancient Greek temples and a heavenly sky in the background. Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royals as well vases, warrior helmets, green and blue Pegasus symbols and Perseus (son of Zeus who beheaded Medusa). The latter is the most rewarding of the standard symbols with 5 on a payline giving you 2.4 times your stake.
Free Games feature
Medusa is obviously the wild and substitutes for all symbols bar the bonus scatter – 3, 4 or 5 in combination will give you 0.4, 1.2 or 3.2 times your stake. When it comes to bonus features, it’s all about the Free Games feature – this is played when you get 2 gold coin bonus scatters (you’ll also get 1 times your stake payout).
Once in, you will begin with 7 free spins – both the scatters transform into sticky wilds (these are represented by red Medusa symbols). These sticky wilds substitute for all symbols bar the Mirror symbol. During the free spins, more red Medusa symbols can appear on reels 1 and 5 – they will both give you an additional free spin.
Mirror Bonus feature
More importantly, the Mirror bonus symbol can appear on the middle reel (reel 3) during the Free Games feature. When it does, you will trigger the Mirror Bonus feature – 1 symbol is then chosen at random. This symbol will fill all positions on reels 2, 3 and 4. However, the payouts for the symbols are halves (from the base game).
Jackpot Bonus Game feature
Lastly, there’s a Jackpot Bonus Game feature – look out for jackpot symbols appear on reels 2 and 4 only in the Free Games feature. If you collect 6 of them, you’ll win the jackpot. This jackpot is progressive.
All about the Progressive Jackpot
Myth of Medusa Gold is a superbly designed slot by Novomatic’s standards – the soundtrack is quite intense and adds to the atmosphere. In terms of gameplay, the slot is good and I like the sticky wilds in the Free Games feature. However, the lower value symbols in the free spins can result in payouts of just 40 times your stake! If you were to fill the reels with wilds in the base game, you’d win just 80 times your stake.
Myth of Medusa Gold is all about the progressive jackpot – the likelihood of collecting 6 jackpot symbols is quite unlikely. I really like Myth of Medusa Gold – however, the potential payouts let it down badly. If you like the snake-haired Medusa, she features in many others slots such as NextGen Gaming’s Medusa MegaWays and Playtech’s Age of the Gods: Medusa & Monsters – these offer much bigger potential wins.
