Greek mythology describes Medusa as a winged human with a hideous face and venomous snakes for hair. Anybody who looked at her would immediately be turned to stone. Medusa 2 is an online slot from Next Gen Gaming based on this Greek myth and has 5 reels and 243 paylines. This means that players can create winning combinations with matching symbols in adjacent reels.
Medusa 2 has 5 standard symbols with payouts ranging from 400 to 100 coins for 5. The playing card symbols are also featured and have payouts of 50 coins each for 5. Players can click on the paytable or information button to view the payouts for all of the symbols.
Scatter and Wild Symbol
The Medusa 2 logo is the scatter symbol and will payout in any direction and all of the scatter wins will be multiplied by the total bet. Medusa is the wild symbol and has a payout of 500 coins for 5, 50 coins for 4 and 20 coins for 3. The wild symbol will substitute for all the symbols except the scatter and the wild symbol is stacked and will appear on all of the reels.
Medusa 2 Locked Reels
Medusa’s Locked Reels will occur during the base game as well as the free spins game. The locked reels will happen when 2, 3, 4 or 5 reels lock together and when the reel stops spinning all of them will display the same symbols. This allows for more wins.
The free games round is activated by 3 or more scatter symbols on the reels. Players will receive 10 free spins. The locked reels will also occur during this round. The free spins round can be reactivated when 3 or more scatters land on the reels and players will receive an extra 5 free spins.
Turned to Stone Stacked Wilds
A soldier may appear at random intervals during the base game and attack Medusa. He will be turned to stone when he looks at her and a stack of wilds will be revealed.
The gamble option is enabled after a winning spin and players can choose this option by clicking on the hearts and clubs button. Players will have the chance to correctly guess either the colour or suit of the playing card. By correctly guessing the colour players can double their win and for correctly guessing the suit they can quadruple their win. Players will get 5 attempts to gamble.
The gamble feature is optional and players can either collect their winnings from the spin or choose to gamble. If players guess incorrectly they will lose what they have just won at this real money pokies game.
