Medusa II is the 5-reel, 3-row and 243-ways-to-win slot from NextGen Gaming based on the Greek mythological Gorgon Medusa. Punished by the Goddess Athena, she was said to have hair of venomous snakes with a gaze that transformed many poor souls into stone. Her power may translate into Herculean prizes of as much as 500 coins on a way-win payline!
The slot serves up some heroic graphics that include the background constructed of grassy hills with the remnants of building columns. The slot has some mythological symbols that include base symbols like a soldier's helmet, serpents, soldier turned to stone, arrows and a bracelet. At the lower end there are the A, K, Q, J and 10 poker symbols. While the lower symbols have a pretty basic design, the upper to lower are visually quiet supportive of the overall theme. Powerful background music echoes in the background with added audio effects that are unlocked by winning paylines or unlocked features.
Stacked wilds, locked reels and free spins
To complement the game, it has a number of features designed to capture your imagination. One example is the Turned to Stone Stacked Wilds symbol where a soldier appearing on a reel during the base game may reveal a stack of wilds. The next feature is Medusa's Locked Reels triggered during the base game where 2, 3, 4 or 5 adjacent reels lock and spin in tandem to reveal identical symbols. Another feature is Medusa's Locked Reels Free Games where three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will unleash a torrent of 10 free games. While this feature is going, 2, 3, 4 or 5 adjacent reels will lock and spin in tandem. It is possible to re-trigger 5 free games. The final feature in this game is the Gamble Feature where you can choose to play either the colour gamble or card suit gamble. The first gives you a 1 in 2 chance at doubling your winnings but guess wrong and you lose it all. Alternatively the card suit gamble is your chance to quadruple your winnings with a 1 in 4 chance. Both features can be played up to a maximum of 5 consecutive times.
