NextGen’s Medusa 2
As an additional release to the original Medusa video slots game, NextGen has released the follow-up version, simply named Medusa 2. The game draws on the same theme as the original one, offering a dark Greek mythological exploration of the Medusa myth, with matching sinister symbols and background music. As additional features, however, the Medusa 2 version offers multiple bonus features as well as a 243 ways of winning feature.
The Medusa 2 Locking Wild Feature
The wild feature in the Medusa 2 video slots game is particularly interesting as it operates as a locking wild feature. In this feature, the three middle reels lock together and subsequently re-spin together with parallel symbols.
This raises the winning chances. The wild symbol will also reward players with a set multiplier, depending on how many wild symbols were landed. So, if players land three wild symbols, they will be rewarded with a twenty time multiplier. If they land four wild symbols, they will be rewarded with a fifty time multiplier.
Finally, if players land five wild symbols, they will be rewarded with a five hundred time multiplier. In addition, the wild symbols will also operate as usual, being used to substitute any of the other symbols and thereby help players complete winning pay lines and make up the best possible winning combinations with the highest payouts.
The Medusa 2 Scatter Feature
The scatter symbol in the Medusa 2 video slots game will also reward players with multipliers, depending on how many scatter symbols were landed. If players land three scatter symbols, they will receive a fifty time multiplier on their bet. If they land four scatter symbols, they will receive a hundred and twenty five time multiplier.
Finally, if players land five scatter symbols, they will receive a three hundred and fifty time multiplier. In addition, the scatter symbols will also reward players with ten free spins. These pay be re-triggered, even within the free spins round, and another five free spins may be rewarded.
The Medusa 2 Gamble Feature
The Medusa 2 video slots game also offers players a gamble feature, which may be triggered after every winning spin. In this feature, players will have the chance to double or quadruple their winnings by guessing either the correct colour or the correct suit of a hidden standard playing card.
The 243 Ways of Winning Feature
In contrast to the original Medusa video slots game, which offered a set number of pay lines, the Medusa 2 sequel offers a 243 ways of winning feature. All players need to do to win is to land three to five matching symbols. Finding matching letters and numbers will reward players with a bet multiplier with a value of between five and one hundred times. In addition, some of the symbols will also pay out high multiplier stake values.
Landing five arrow quivers or stone symbols will pay out two hundred times the original stake, five gold serpent symbols will pay out three hundred times the original stake, and five serpent-filled helmets will pay out four hundred times the original stake.
