Medusa In Microgaming Online Slots

September 13, 2018

A new Playtech online slot from the Age of the Gods series has just been released that is titled Medusa and Monsters. There are some exciting Medusa themed video slots in the Microgaming portfolio as well. You can play them at online casinos like All Slots, Royal Vegas and Spin Palace. Medusa was one of the Gorgon sisters from Greek mythology. Anyone who directly looks at her would be turned to stone. Perseus, the Greek hero, beheaded Medusa by looking at her image in Athena’s shield.

Mark of Medusa is one of the Microgaming video slots. Medusa is shown as a beautiful woman, but with snakes for hair. Medusa is the wild symbol and also awards the highest line payouts. A combination with five Medusa symbols pays 10,000 times the line bet. You can expect high volatility in this slot game. The other thematic high paying symbols in Mark of Medusa are the winged horse Pegasus, the three-headed hound Cerberus, Greek warrior, swords and urn. 3, 4 or 5 Pegasus symbols trigger 15, 20 or 25 free spins respectively. All payouts in the free spins are tripled payouts and the feature can be retriggered in the usual manner.

Mount Olympus: The Revenge of Medusa is a much later release as is evident from the higher quality graphics. The reels are set in a rocky passage with lashing rains and loud thunder in the background. Medusa again awards the highest line payouts, but it is only 1,000 coins. The volatility is considerably lower. Medusa is shown as a horrible monster. The low paying playing card symbols get turned into stone during win animations. The Revenge of Medusa free spins feature is triggered when three or more Mount Olympus scatter logo symbols appear anywhere on the reels. You are awarded 5 free spins. Before every free spin Medusa displays five snakes. You choose one to determine how many reels Medusa will freeze and turn into wild reels. The number will be randomly chosen between 1 and 4 and reel 1 will not be frozen. The free spin will then be played out. This feature cannot be retriggered.

Medusa makes an appearance in other Microgaming Greek themed online slots like Stash of the Titans and Hot as Hades. She seems to be the most popular female character in online slots after Cleopatra.
