Medusa’s Gaze occurs when the special Wild symbols appear on the extra reel above the regular reel set and transform 1 or more of the symbols on the reel below into wild symbols.
If they will form a winning combination the wilds are removed from the reels in a regular tumbling reels fashion, but if not they will remain on the reels.
Snake Strike Feature
The Snake Strike feature occurs in the free spins round when a special Soldier Symbol appears on the upper reel set this can be transformed into either
- Left snake transforms into a Wild
- Right snake transforms into a Scatter symbol.
Instantly buy a bonus round trigger for the cost of 100x your current stake size, a £1 bet will cost £100 for the Buy Pass option.
At the end of the free spins round, you are given the choice of forfeiting your total current win amount for the option of fully replaying the free spins bonus round.
Medusa Megaways Slot
Medusa Megaways is certainly one of the more interesting Megaways releases we have played recently mainly down to the very high variance and the Buy Pass feature along with the Temptation (Replay) feature.
Make no mistakes this slot can be brutal, having the buy a feature option allowed us to bypass the potential long waits for the regular bonus triggers so we got to playtest the main bonus features far more extensively than usual and the results are as you would expect were all over the place from less than 1x stake to well over 500x stake wins.
The small bonus features (added wilds, scatters) work really together and the chance of full bonus re-triggers appeared a little higher than we anticipated and is really key for reaching some of the insanely high multipliers that lead to the Legendary wins from this slot.
With a claimed maximum win of over 10000x stake, we haven’t even scratched the surface of the potential from this slot!
Overall I think this particular release of Medusa will get a mixed reaction, for fans of Megaways and high variance slots this should definitely appeal but for those who have fond memories of the Medusa slot series are probably looking for a more standard reel set and features that are truer to the original style.
