Medusa Megaways slot from NextGen and SG Gaming sets you on a quest into Medusa’s lair where you get to face the gorgon on a 6-reel setup with a whopping 117,649 Paylines.
This slot is set in an ancient ruined Greek city with purple, cloudy skies and ear-deafening thunderclaps crackling through the screen.
The setting does well to stick to Greek mythology. Also, it offers some impressive win chances with magnificent bonus features.
Starting out, you get a generous base game paytable that should fill your pockets. If you want more, this slot offers bonuses of free spins, extra reels, and win multipliers.
How to play
Medusa Megaways Slot betting range is set small with minimums of 0.25 and maximums of 25 credits per spin. On the reels are ancient Greek symbols. The Pegasus symbol pays the most – offering 750x the stake with six on the reels.
Medusa Megaways Slot Special Features
Medusa is the game’s wild symbol and as such, it will substitute for other symbols on the reels aside from the soldier and scatter symbol. The scatter will trigger the game’s bonus of free spins.
Landing one or more winning combos will trigger the Reactions feature. When active, all winning symbols are removed from their positions while the remaining symbols cascade downwards. The empty symbol positions are then filled with new symbols which could create another winning combo giving you more chances to win again and again (that’s if you form new win combos with each reaction).
Medusa’s Gaze Feature
With one or more wild symbols appearing on the EXTRA reel, the Medusa’s Gaze Feature will be triggered. Reels below the wild symbols will be covered by Medusa wilds which will replace one or more symbols with wilds. This feature can be triggered again after each reaction.
Free Spins Feature
Medusa Megaways slot offers a more intriguing free spins feature. With 3 scatters symbols anywhere on the reels, you will be awarded 10 free spins. Each additional scatter landed during the bonus feature adds an extra 5 free spins to your total.
The win multiplier starts at x2 and will increase by 1 each time the reaction feature is triggered. When the free spins feature ends, the multiplier will return to x1.
With the free spins feature in play also comes the snake strike feature. Here, snakes appear to the left and right of the EXTRA REEL. This feature is triggered when one or more soldier symbols appear on the EXTRA REEL during the free spins feature.
The soldier symbols will be attacked by the snakes and turn to either wilds or scatters giving you more win opportunities and possibly more free spins.
Once all free games have been completed, you get to choose whether to COLLECT the current FREE SPINS win or REPLAY the FREE SPINS feature. The latter will see you forfeit your winnings and re-enter the free spins bonus.
With the buy feature, you can trigger the free spins round by paying for it. This would cost 100x your total bet and 10 free spins would be awarded.
With no jackpot prize to claim, you’d have to settle for the max pay of 50,000x the stake.
Return to Player (RTP)
This slot’s RTP is set at 96.286% (without the buy feature) and 97.63% (with the buy feature).
Medusa Megaways Slot is packed with bonus features and a highly rewarding base game paytable that makes it better than most slots in the industry. With its above-average RTP, this slot undoubtedly ranks as one of the most profitable games to try out in the casino.
