Myth of Medusa Gold Slot
One of Greentube’s releases, Myth of Medusa Gold is going to tell a story which has been famous for a long time now, not a surprise since it’s actually taken from the Ancient Greek mythology. The Medusa has also been a central character of several slots over the years, so it’s not a unique choice for this developer.
We don’t get huge payouts here, except maybe for the slot’s progressive jackpots, but at the same time the regular combinations pay up to 80x total stake. It’s a 5-reel slot, it has 25 active lines, as well as a mix of features ranging from wild symbols, scatters, free spins and a Mirror Bonus.
Betting and Prizes
Since we get 25 active lines in Myth of Medusa Gold, we also need to spend enough in order to have them all covered. Wagers in this game use 25 coins, and the total bets allowed go from $0.25 to $50. This allows for a maximum bet of $2 per line.
If you look only at the rewards being paid by the game’s regular combinations, you’re likely to be disappointed with Myth of Medusa Gold. The game has top rewards of up to 3.2x total stake per line, when it’s filled with wild symbols. Have all lines with wilds on them, and you can hope for a measly 80x jackpot. It’s the progressive jackpot that seems to be much more attractive here, but obviously the odds of triggering one aren’t great.
This game comes with low volatility, so you do win fairly often, making up for the smaller rewards somewhat. It’s still a game that doesn’t give you a lot of motivation to keep playing it.
Myth of Medusa Gold Slot Features
Among the feature symbols that are bound to appear in this game, eventually, Medusa is one of the major ones. It’s the wild symbol in this case, and so it can be used as a replacement for any regular symbol which can form combinations on active lines. It’s also the highest paying symbol of the game, though with rewards of up to 3.2x total stake, it disappoints heavily.
As for the other symbols with something extra to offer, we’re looking at scatters which take the form of Gold Coins. Have two appear, and the game gives you 7 free spins. The triggering scatters get transformed into sticky Medusa Wilds, the ones colored in red. You can get extra red Medusa wilds on the 1st and 5th reels, each one providing you with 1 extra free spin.
If you land Mirror symbols on the 3rd reel, while playing through the free spins, the game gives you access to a bonus game called Mirror Bonus. The slot picks a random symbol, and then it will fill the middle three reels with it. The downside is that those symbols pay only half what they would give you in the base game.
The bonus game that’s giving you access to the progressive jackpots will require the presence of the Jackpot icons on the 2nd and 4th reels, in free spins mode. Collect 6, and a jackpot is yours.
Theme & Design
It’s neither a new idea, nor a great implementation, so as usual, the graphics are barely worth mentioning in this Greentube/Novomatic slot machine. It’s based on the story of Medusa, the woman with snakes on her head, as told in the Greek legends. As symbols there are the Royals first, and then the symbols with pottery, helmets, Pegasus, Perseus or Medusa.
Myth of Medusa Gold is a game with low volatility, disappointing fixed prizes, but on the other hand it’s also offering progressive jackpots, so it might be a decent pick for some players.
