If you’ve played NextGen’s Medusa slot, you’d be probably expecting from its sequel Medusa 2 to be an improved version but featuring the same theme. And you’d be right since the sequel has been improved in many ways. First of all, Indian players will enjoy Medusa 2 RTP of 97.07%, which is way higher than the RTP in its prequel. Then, you will get the chance to feel the chills since the theme in the sequel is way darker than the one in the prequel. The mesmerizing gorgon has started showing her real face and has started hurting soldiers that come in her way. But she has also decided to be more generous with you, and give you 243 ways to win and payouts of up to 25,000 credits per single spin! If you have played the prequel, you know by now that Medusa 2 online slot gives you twice the payouts given in the original slot.
Medusa 2 slot by Nextgen Gaming gives you a chance to have 243 ways to win active. In fact, this is not something you can change, because the 243 ways to win are fixed. Now, you play this number of ways with 25 coins. You can pay 0.01 credits for one coin, meaning your minimum bet can be 0.25 credits. Your maximum bet can go up to 50 credits, for a coin value of 2 credits.
Now, all symbols pay according to the paytable, multiplied by the stake. You get the Medusa symbol, which is the Wild in the slot, appears stacked on all reels and substitutes for all symbols except for the Scatter. Medusa is also the highest-paying symbol, which gives you 500x the stake for a 5-of-a-kind combo. For the max bet, this symbol gives you 25,000 credits. Next best paying symbol is the venomous Serpent which has encircled a soldier’s helmet. It gives you 400x the stake for the best combo. The symbol with 3 Snakes is the next high-paying symbol, giving you 300x the stake, followed by the Soldier Statue which gives you 200x the stake. The Bow and Arrows symbol also gives you 200x the stake, while the Golden Ring gives you 100x the stake. For the lowest-paying symbols, you get the playing card Royals from 10 through A giving you 50x the stake.
You also get the Scattered Game’s Logo, which gives you 250x multiplied by the bet but added to your payline wins.
During the base game, you can see a soldier appearing at random on a reel, and revealing a Stack of Wilds. This is the first Medusa 2 bonus feature you will come across, called Turned to Stone Stacked Wilds. The second bonus feature you’ll see is the Medusa’s Locked Reels feature. During the base game, on any spin, any two, three, four or all five adjacent reels may get locked and spin simultaneously together to give the same symbols in adjacent positions, giving you chances for boosted payouts.
With 3 or more Scattered Logos you trigger the Medusa’s Locked Reels Free Games feature. You initially get 10 Free Spins, during which you can get the reels to lock again and spin to give you the same symbols in adjacent positions. The Free Spins can be retriggered, giving you 5 additional Free Spins.
Medusa 2 online slot does justice to its prequel. This software developer has kept the original theme, improved it to look and feel darker, and boosted it with better graphic design. Payout-wise, you can notice that the potential rewards are doubled, and the RTP is way higher than the one in the prequel. In all, Medusa 2 is a slot you should try, because, for a reasonable bet amount, you can win a lot. The game can be played on any desktop and mobile device, so wherever you are, try it the first chance you get.
