One of most feared creatures from the Greek mythology is back, more ruthless then ever, and boasting the ability to turn onlookers into stone, Medusa is definitely someone you should not make an eye contact with. The Greek monster is, however, surrounded by a plethora of gold statues and other valuable possessions, so you will want to be in her vicinity, albeit making sure to never look her directly in the eyes.
Medusa video slot had become so popular that NextGen decided to launch a sequel on desktop and mobile midway through 2014, which proved to be a good move. Medusa II is played at five reels and features 243 way wins format, as well as several attractive perks and benefits, such as Medusa's Locked Reels, Free Spins round, Turned to Stone Stacked Wilds and Gamble Feature.
Play Medusa II
The NextGen title houses a number of symbols based on the legend of Medusa, meaning you will see Medusa's mask, serpents, soldier turned into stone, bow and arrows, golden bracelet and high cards Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten populate the reels as regular icons. Medusa close up and game logo are the two special symbols, while a soldier can appear randomly on the screen to attack Medusa.
How to play
Up and down arrows are used to select the desired coin denomination, with each spin of the reels costing exactly twenty five coins.
The 243 way wins scheme means that matching symbols pay each time they are found on adjacent reels rather than on individual paylines.
Medusa is Wild and it appears Stacked on all reels to replace all non-Scatter icons. When a soldier appears on the screen to attack Medusa, he will be turned into stone, revealing a stack of Wilds.
Strategy & Tips
Two, three, four or five adjacent reels can lock and spin together to show the same symbols when Medusa's Locked Reels are triggered.
Get three Game Logo Scatters to occur anywhere and 10 free games will be awarded where every spin is a Locked Reels Spin.
You can use the Gamble option to double or quadruple your base line payouts by guessing the colour or suit of next card.
Medusa II is another NextGen slot that was simultaneously released on desktop and mobile, where the HTML5 version has been adapted for smartphone and tablet screens, which means it features a different main screen layout.
Your Balance, Total Bet and Win amounts are displayed above the reels, whereas Home, Settings and Spin are the only icons available in the main window. The visuals and sounds are of high quality, enabling a rewarding gaming experience.
