Data

Medusa offers 243 ways to win, a huge improvement over the 25 win lines of its original release. Any combination of its adjacent 2, 3, 4 or 5 reals can lead to winnings, which provides very advantageous odds. Players can choose to bet anything from 25p to 50 pounds per spin. The symbols on the reels include a bow, arrow, bracelet, snake emblem, helmet with a snake, statue of a soldier and the common 10 through to Ace symbols filling up the rest of the reels.

Features

Despite the seemingly poor graphics for this period, Medusa 2 was rocking back when it was lauched. It may not has the striking video qualities of NetEnt's slots, but it certainly has that flavor that a lot of players enjoy. Not to mention the mystic audio that makes the atmosphere that much more enticing. Medusa 2 slot comes with a couple of bonus features that can be rather rewarding if you get the hit rate on point. That said, the Wild symbol is represented by the ancient greek mythic Medusa. Try not to get mesmorized by her gaze. This symbol substitutes for any other symbol except the Scatter, which is the logo of Medusa 2 slot.

Special Features

Medusa 2 offers a good amount of special features and winning possibilities. When you combine 3, 4 or 5 Medusa Scatter symbols you will get 10 free games with winnings multiplied depending on your bet. Occasionally a Roman soldier will appear, which Medusa will turn to stone and break, after which a stack of Wilds is revealed. This particular bonus features is called Medusa's Locked Reel Free Games. In simple words, Medusa will turn two adjacent reels to become identical, significantly increasing your odds. She will jump from one pair of reels to another randomly.

 As weird as it sounds, you will actually want to see Medusa’s gaze in this game. Wilds can appear on all reels and they only act as a substitute for all reels except Scatter – which is arguably the most important one. The bonus feature triggered by the scatters is your best bet at winning. 

Conclusion

NextGen Gaming tends to have a distinctive style in delivering video slots. They perfectly depicted the story, the legend of Medusa. Medusa 2 is certainly an improved version of the initial game release. One of a kind bonus features, tailor-made symbols, alluring background audio and most importantly high return per player percentage. She may have turned to stone those who gazed in her troubling eyes, but all she can do to you is make you rich.
