Nextgen Gaming will shortly be releasing (24th April 2019) the next instalment in their very popular Medusa slot series this time featuring Megaways.
Both Medusa (2009) and Medusa II (2015) have proven to be some of Nextgen’s most popular slots, not purely down to the iconic theme used but both were very high variance machines packed with a variety of base game and bonus features that still remain popular with experienced slot players including me!
Videoslots Casino already has both of these classic slots playable at their casino and are still to this day worth checking out and will give you a good taste of what to expect in Medusa Megaways.
The Medusa Megaways slot is heavily inspired from the original Medusa slot with familiar symbols being replicated in this release along with special features such as Medusa’s Gaze (Added Wilds) and the Snake Strike feature (Wilds or Scatters) being added to the reels.
At the core, of course, you have the classic Megasways slot format with tumbling reels after wins and rising multipliers in the bonus rounds and along with this Nextgen has introduced a Buy Pass (buy a bonus round) option that also gives you a gamble offer feature at the end of the bonus round to fully replay the free spins!
It should also be noted that Nextgen is pitching this release not just as a high variance slot but coming with a Very High Variance tag, and the RTP (Return To player) does also differ depending on whether you play this slot normally for bonus rounds or opt for the Buy Pass feature which overall has the highest RTP.
There are a couple of other nifty features particularly from the Medusa’s Gaze feature where any wilds that do not initially form a winning combination remain on the reels which can help set up a nice chain reaction of wins.
