Greek mythology is a common theme among online and land based slots. One of the many Greek mythology themed slots is Medusa Megaways. Few players have never heard of Medusa, giving the game a worldwide appeal. This is evident in the fact that Megaways is the third in a series of Medusa games.
Graphics, Symbols and Soundtrack
The reels are held up by a Parthenon. Beyond that, players see that the background consists of an ancient city lying in ruins. The themed symbols on the reels include Pegasus, the winged shoes of Medusa, a battle shield, ring and a snake wearing a brooch. The game’s logo serves as its scatter symbol while the image of Medusa is the wild symbol. While the reels are spinning, suspenseful music is played to help build anticipation. And when symbols form a winning combination, players hear thunder and other loud, imposing noises.
One popular feature used in this game is tumbling reels. When winning combinations of symbols are formed, those symbols drop off the reels and are replaced with new symbols. This continues until there is no winning combination of symbols. At that point, players have to pay to spin the reels again.
To get free spins, players must get three of the scatter symbol on the reels at once. When this happens, they get 10 spins for free. If it happens again during free spins, they are retriggered to give players an extra free five spins.
The start of free spins gives players an automatic multiplier that doubles their winnings. Every time a free spin results in a winning combination the value of the multiplier increases. There is no limit to how high the value of the multiplier can go.
During regular gameplay or free spins, it is possible to get Medusa on the reels. There is one extra reel added to the game screen, where Medusa shows up. She turns into an expanding wild and covers the entire reel she is on. Every symbol on that reel then becomes a wild as well.
These are not the only bonus features offered. Players can also look forward to the Snake Strike feature. During this feature a symbol of a soldier appears on Medusa’s extra reel. One or the other of the snakes adorning the sides of the reel attacks the soldier. If the snake on the left side of the reels attacks him he becomes a wild symbol. If the snake on the right side of the reels attacks him he becomes a scatter.

Players can also anticipate the excitement of the Temptation feature. This feature gives them a second chance to play the free spins bonus round. If players choose the Temptation feature they give up their winnings from playing the free spins bonus the first time around. They get a second chance to win more money with the same value multiplier and same number of spins for free. For brave players, this is a favorite feature.
