With Mount Olympus in the backdrop, this beautifully designed slot sees Medusa above the reel set. Symbols include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royals as well as Pegasus (the white winged horse), Cretan Bull, Nemean Lion, Achilles (the fearless warrior) and Medusa herself. Medusa is the highest value symbol with 5 on a payline giving you over 5.2 times your stake.

The temple is the wild and replaces all symbols except the scatter – it appears on all reels except reel 1. Whenever a wild symbol appears in the base game, it can randomly activate the Jackpot Bonus Game feature. Here, there are 4 fixed jackpots to be won – you pick from gold coins to reveal a Jackpot symbol. Match 3 and you’ll win that jackpot – here’s what’s on offer:

  • Mini Jackpot – 30 times stake
  • Minor Jackpot – 50 times stake
  • Major Jackpot – 100 times stake
  • Grand Jackpot – 1,000 times stake

The other symbol to look out for is the snake which is the scatter – 3, 4 or 5 starting from left to right on adjacent reels (starting from reel 1) will trigger the Free Spins feature. With 10 free spins awarded, you’ll get 5, 10 or 50 times your stake respectively.

During the feature, 3 or more scatters will give you another 10 free spins with no limits. Furthermore, special reels are in use during the free spins with only high value symbols, the wild and the scatter present. This, in theory, should lead to bigger wins.

Medusa Strike is a well-designed slot – despite the bonus features offering nothing unique, you can win 1,000 times your stake from the Grand Jackpot in the Jackpot Bonus Game feature. In the base game and Free Spins feature, you can pocket over 850 times your stake on each spin/free spin.

Medusa Strike is a decent slot from Pragmatic Play – however, I prefer Medusa MegaWays from NextGen Gaming which has the same theme but offers much bigger potential payouts (up to 50,000 times your stake on every spin).
