Medusa & Monsters is a 2018 addition to the Age of the Gods, a series by Playtech popular with online gamblers thanks to the networked progressive jackpots that can be life-changing. Once again, Playtech tells us a story from Ancient Greek mythology. This time it is dark and intriguing with Medusa and other monsters you need to face if you want to win big.
The slot uses an unorthodox layout with 6 reels and 164 paylines. Although the game features not so impressive graphics, its soundtrack and bonus features will lure you and keep you seated for a while, we bet. Apart from four progressive jackpots up for grabs, the slot offers stacked symbols, expanding Wilds and a free spins round with shifting Wilds and petrified or locked icons.
The reels are set against a shore with the sea slapping the rocks. They are home to high-value symbols depicted as a Siren, Minotaur and the multi-headed dog Cerberus. The rest of positions are populated by longboats, swords and winged helmets as well as gemstones in four different colours. All symbols can appear in stacks to cover the reels fully.
The slot uses a reel set with 6 reels and a unique 6x7x6x7x6x7 structure. It offers 164 paylines while a bet is configured to 50 paylines. Players can wager from $0.50 up to $100 per spin.
You can set the reels in motion by pressing the Spin button or activate up to 99 spins that will play without interruption with the Autoplay feature. If you want the reels to spin faster, use the Turbo Mode feature.
The game pays as long as you land 3 or more matching symbols on a payline left to right.
Medusa, a monster with venomous snakes in place of hair, stands for Wild that expands to fill the reel entirely and replace all symbols bar Scatter.
Shield Scatter appears in stacks and covers two positions on the reels 2, 4 and 6. You need 3 of these to unlock the Medusa’s Gaze Free Games feature. Once you do it, you are granted 6 free spins. Before free games start, you will be offered to pick a shield and reveal a high-value symbol. Medusa will petrify this symbol whenever it occurs on the reels within the feature. Medusa appears on the reel 6 and moves one reel to the left on every spin. The petrified symbols will unlock when Medusa lands on the same reel and once Medusa lands on the reel 1, the feature ends.
Just like other titles from the series, Medusa & Monsters offers the Age of the Gods Jackpot Game activated at random. Once you enter it, you should pick 3 golden coins of a kind to win one of four progressive jackpots.
