Medusa Slot Machine
Try NextGen Gaming Slots
The timeless Greek myth of the beautiful gorgon with fatal snakes instead of hair has been portrayed in many slots. NextGen even has a series of slots based on Medusa. But Blueprint’s take on the myth is somehow different, presented with cartoony graphics and a less creepy feel.
The symbols with the Three Snakeheads is the Wild in the slot. Besides substituting for all symbols on the reels to help you complete a winning combo, the Wild will also give you the highest payout for a 5-of-a-kind combo.
Contrary to most same-patterned slots, there will be no Free Spins in Medusa. And as you can see, there is no Scatter in the gameplay. You will benefit, though, from a special feature called Medusa Wild Transformation.
When the large Medusa symbol appears on the third reel, it triggers the Medusa Wild Transformation. This is when 2 randomly selected symbols will be transformed into Wilds.
Considering you’ve managed to land as many Wilds and matching symbols as you can, you can eventually turn all symbols on the reels into Wilds. This is when you can reach the maximum payout potential of the slot, 2,000x the stake.
Theme & Design
Similarly to other Medusa-themed slots, you will see that the reels are set inside a Greek temple. You can see the big white pillars, the last one decorated with a plate portraying a snake. The reels are transparent, so you can see in the background that the night has fallen and terrible things are about to happen. You can see the remains of what used to be unfortunate mortals turned to stone. Undoubtedly, the best element of the slot's production is the soundtrack, with its uncanny sounds.
On the reels, though, you will see the Royals unfittingly set as the lowest-paying symbols. The more rewarding pottery, temples, and crossed swords are obviously themed, as are the highest-paying regular symbols, the Spartan helmets, giving you 100x the stake for a 5-of-a-kind combo. The three Snakeheads Wild, as we said, is the top symbol giving you 200x the stake.
Wagering & Paylines
There are 5 reels and 10 fixed paylines offered in Medusa. The least you can bet for these 10 paylines is $0.10, while the most $20.00 per spin. The RTP is the average one of 96.40%.
When it comes to payouts, the highest-paying regular symbol, the Spartan helmets, will give you 100x the stake, meaning $2,000.00 for a 5-of-a-kind combo. The top symbol, the Snakeheads Wild will deliver 200x the stake, meaning $4,000.00 for the best combo. If you get a successful run through the Medusa Wild Transformation feature, you could reach the maximum potential of 2,000x the stake. This means that you could get $20,000.00 in one spin, and considering the slot is a medium volatile one, you could get to that payout more often than you’d think.
Medusa is a mediocre slot, offering decent cartoony graphics, simple gameplay revolving around Wilds and the Medusa Wild Transformation feature, and mechanics fitted for low-rollers. The maximum bet is quite convenient for them, as is the max win potential. For a $20.00 bet, you could get to a $40,000.00 payout per spin. This means that if you're such a player, you should try it out. If you're looking for more lucrative payouts, you’re free to skip on this one.
