Medusa is mentioned in Greek mythology as one of the three Mermaids. Of these 3 Sisters, Medusa was the mortal. Her other name was 'Gorgo' which means Wild Look.

The legendary creature Medusa from Greek mythology, taking you back on dark times, by Nextgen Gaming, offering Wilds/Scatters/Free Spins/Multipliers/Potential up to 5.000x bet. Upon 5 Reels/25 Paylines.
In overall, this slot contains the mystery of Ancient era with decent visuals will probably appeal some Players, who enjoy a good myth-inspired video slot.

Regarding my sessions, whenever I try it, fails to perform Βig wins.

Medusa is one lady all men better stay away from. One step too near can be fatal! You'd be turned into stone, or get bitten by those snakes. Gees! Ah well, luckily she's only mythical, whether existed for real or not I wouldn't know, but I surely don't want to meet up with her, know what I mean? Those snakes on her head are a real turn-off for me! Hahaha.

This game isn't a new one, but isn't that old either. It's a 25 paylines game from NextGen, with acceptable graphics by today's standards, but I do like the overall colour scheme. It looks pleasing and vibrant enough to be attractive. Medusa is the Wild symbol, of course. She doesn't pay anything for herself, too bad, appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4, and getting all 3 of her triggers the Turned To Stone feature game. 3 Respins are awarded, all wins are tripled, and with an Expanded Medusa on 1, 2 or all 3 reels, for a handsome win. Nah, better make that a beautiful win. She isn't handsome anyway. Medusa also substitutes for other symbols except for the Scatter and Bonus symbols. The Logo, 'Medusa', is the Scatter symbol, paying 250x the total bet for getting 5 of them, which is pretty good, and getting 3 Scatters trigger 10 free spins with all wins doubled. During the free spins, a Soldier may appear on reel 3 only, and awards up to 3 Super Spins for each appearance. The Super Spins are played immediately after the free spins have finished, and all wins are multiplied by 5x. Very nice. The Free Spins and the Super Spins can be retriggered, although this is quite rare. I could only get retriggers for the regular free spins and never for the Super Spins.

Pegasus is the Bonus symbol, appearing only on reels 2, 3 and 4, same as for the Wilds, and getting 3 Pegasus triggers a Bonus round. Pick one of Pegasus to win a prize of up to 50x the total bet. A 'Pick Again' or a 'Win All' icon may appear during the picks for more wins.This feature can also be triggered during the Free Spins game, with all wins multiplied by 2x during the regular free spins, and 5x during the Super Spins. Nice, again. The Turned To Stone Respins, however, can only occur in the base game. As for the other symbols, the Building pays 5000x, the Soldiers pay 2000x, and the others pay from 500x to 100x, all per line bet for getting 5 of each kind. An average paytable.


I've played both this versions of Medusa and Medusa II, plus a few other games also with Medusa in its theme, but both these 2 Medusa's played a little better than the rest, in terms of general payouts and potential payouts. Perhaps Medusa II has a slight edge over this version, with it's slightly different features. Nonetheless, I've played Medusa many times before, only managing to get a few wins from her, but nothing really big so far. A little disappointing for me for not getting them, but I guess big wins on any NextGen games are rather hard to get. In my last play on Medusa, for example, I could only get wins of 12x up to 23x and nothing higher than that. Now that is disappointing indeed, wouldn't you agree? Hehehe.

Medusa is video slot from NextGen gaming software. It has 25 paylines and design looks old. First thing when I opened this game was that I looked into paytable. It looks good enough that I played it.

I played at minimum stakes and in the beginning I received two bonus games very fast. The first paid me around x12 and second around x30 my bet size. The bonus is ok, but it could provide bigger wins. I picked up the second time all wins from 3 symbols and this gave me only x30 win.
During main game the wild could expand if you receive 3 medusas. This could happen at reel 2, 3 or 4. I received this one time and after that you receive 3 re-spins. I won a little from those medusas wilds. I think there should be more than just one wild which expand on the reel.

The free spins feature looks better on the paytable. I didn't received any free games when i played. It seems really hard to trigger free games feature. Into free games the winnings are at x2 multiplier. You collect super spins whenever soldier symbol appears. These super spins are at x5 multiplier which is think is much more better than at x2 multiplier. I also played the second version of this game, but I prefer to play this one. I think I had more luck on it than on the second one.

The game could be great if you have good run on it. I tried this game when I had some good run on other games from different softwares. I think I will play this game sometimes in the future, but only when my balance will be at higher amount. I don't imagine to make deposit just for this game, it is not so attractive since I didn't had any free games feature.

I think we can safely say that Medusa is one of if not the most popular and famous NextGen product and not without reason. The slot has Greek mythology theme and the creators really couldn’t complain that they didn’t show their skills and fortunately they did a good job with the appearance. The reel area got nice and noble Corinthian columns as border and the background also illustrate some contemporary monuments but I guess the nicely drawn, attractive and very suitable grape, coin, amphora, Pegasus, warrior are the ones that really catch the players’ attention. The entire interface is very decorative but not overdone which is a common problem at games like this, well-designed and very and easy to use, so this is a very correct product from the developers’ part.

Fortunately the cultural richness which very specific of that age is not just manifested in the awesome appearance but the game segment also follows it and has some great features and solutions. The top 5 of a kind win is worth 5000 coins which is barely acceptable but this amount can be multiplied by many ways that makes the game a real promising product. For example it can be done by the help of Medusa which works as of Wild and has a secondary function where we need 3 of them to appear on the reels then we’re awarded 3 re-spins where all wins are tripled and we get one of the second, three or fourth reel covered with Wilds.

Three Medusa labeled emblems trigger free spin feature which consists of 10 extra games and all wins are doubled there but this feature also got an extra push as a special Warrior symbol is added to the inner reels and every time it appears on that reel 3 Super Spins are given. These kind of extra spins are played after free games completed and has a gorgeous x5 multiplier value attached to this little session. The slot didn’t forget to offer bonus game too which is a ‘pick me’ type one and we have to select from the three appeared Pegasus character on the screen and we can win up to 50 times of bet. If all of these great features wouldn’t be enough or for some reasons we wouldn’t be satisfied with the achieved results there’s always the wonderful gambling feature which is the best of its kind on the market, IMO.

All in all, this is a real feature rich slot which wouldn’t be a big surprise as we can see several other products out there with similar qualities but at this game they really work and not just there to be something delightful on the paytable.
I always play this slot with €1.25 partly because it fits most of the times to my balance and also because I got rewarded well sometimes with stake like this. My most memorable session came when after a half hour play I got an entry to free games and I could be happy about a 5 of a kind win with the second best paying symbols which was worth 4000 coins and then at the Super Spins I won some more and at the end of the feature my total awarded credits were around €320 and at the end of the day I almost could pocket around €430. So I could really recommend this slot to those… basically to everyone who likes amazing game which has no real shortcoming and what subject haven’t been touched yet, which also possesses the ability to entertain big way and be a very enjoyable overall product.

Medusa is a 25 line NextGen game that I usually play on Microgaming casinos. I don't know why it's there, but I am pretty happy that it is.This game is full of surprises and with it's mythological theme it can take you on an adventure of your life. One thing I can say for sure is that if this game is on the Up, it will let you know about it. I had moments when I was getting features and big wins back to back, bringing me lots of money and enjoyment. There was a time when I only had around a tenner and was playing on small bets. Within hour I had over €200 and was playing on a €1 bets. I experienced that and recommend this game to all. Even on small bets it can provide you win big wins, and not many games can do that.

The graphics and the sound effects are also pretty cool and make the whole experience very pleasant. The game play also only gets better with bigger bets, so if the game is paying you will make lots of cash and if it doesn't you will walk away with a loss. The main thing is to know the difference and have the will power to leave the game.


The game can be fussy and no matter what you try it would not pay good. Even if you get the feature it will give you a small pay. Once I spent over €50 chasing this free spin feature, and when I finally got it I only won €8 on it.

I am a big fan of double tapping and it is sad that you can't do that on this game. Double tapping the feature would have been awesome and I am sure I would have done it soon or later.

Over all an awesome game that made me a lot of cash. My rating 9 out of 10.

Lately I discovered Skill On Net software and I liked the games from the start. A few games instantly became my favorites like Medusa II, Super Safari and Medusa. The first game I tried in a Skill on Net casino was Super Safari and I really liked it. The payouts were great and I was looking for another game which is similar to this one.

Than I found Medusa which is an exact clone of Super Safari. The combination of the bonus features, payout rate and Greek mythology were enough to make this game one of my favorites in Skill On Net software. There are 3 bonus features in this game. If you get 3 wild Medusa symbols on the 3 central reels one of them becomes expanded and you get 3 respins. If you are lucky enough to get an extra wild and a nice combination on a winning payline the payout can be amazing.

I was lucky enough to have a win like that in Mr. Green when I had an amazing 157 euros win on a small 0.25 bet. The second bonus in this game is the Pegasus bonus. This is a simple pick up bonus. When 3 Pegasus symbols appear on the central 3 reels you choose one that awards you a cash prize. You can also win to choose again or collect all. This bonus can also produce some big wins. The third bonus feature in this game are the free spins bonus. If you get 3 scatter Medusa symbols you are awarded with 10 free spins and all prizes doubled. If a soldier appears on the reels it reveals a number of super spins. In super spins all wins are multiplied by 5. You can easily get 10 to 15 super spins in this feature.


In the super spins bonus whenever I get a big number of super spins the wins are small. This can be really annoying.

Number 2 in my top 10 NextGen video slot list. Which is number 1? Eell I can only tell you that the number 1 is not in the list of games in this forum but maybe in the future it will be and I also can tell you all my fellow gamblers that the number 1 has paid me over 1200 times my bet but unfortunately I played with the lowest bet (like I always did).

But now I am reviewing Medusa, the predecessor of Medusa II.
I am probably not the only one who thinks that the first part (original) is always the best one (apply for movies, games or books).

The reason why they always the best is because the sequels are the sequels! There is no originality of them. It's true sometimes the sequel is as good as it's predecessor or even better but not with this game.

Medusa is also in my opinion as great as a WMS game, it has the potential to pay huge especially when the multistage free spins is triggered.
Medusa has the same gameplay as the game from my previous review (Super Safari).

For once I have registered at a SkillOnNet casino because they were offering a free 10 euro no deposit needed. It was before they offering WMS games so you can imagine how long ago it was.
With that free 10 euro I went to Medusa and start playing, after 5 minutes I lost half of my budget and then three scatters appeared and triggered the bonus round, at the first stage I won not that much, it was very disappointing but I did get a few snakes during the first stage thou.

The second stage of the free spins did put a big smile on my face because damn! it felt like having a burger and a sip coca cola after 2 days starvation (probably not a great equation).
Let me put it in other words: hell yeah!

I know medusa was the bad guy (or girl) but at that moment she was my hero of the day and I could kiss every lips of her hair.
Medusa is a great game and it always will be, love it very much!

Medusa is a slot machine that has been popular in casinos for many years and I have got it a try. Basically it is quite attractive especially the eye popping graphics. This Medusa is referring a character from Greek Mythology, the game features the lady with venomous snakes for hair. If the myth is to be believed then you might turn to stone if you gaze into her eyes, and Medusa has appeared herself in many popular blockbuster movies like Clash of Titans.

The part that attracts me the most is that there are three bonus rounds available in Medusa, the one that generally proves to be the most rewarding is the Once Bitten Bonus. It is triggered by landing 3 or more scattered Medusa symbols anywhere on screen, which rewards 10 free games with a 2x multiplier on winning lines. If you land the soldier symbol on the middle reel during the feature then you will get extra Super spins at the end of the bonus where all wins are multiplied by 5. The 5 multiplier is even better compared to other slot games.The Turned to Stone Respins feature occurs when the Medusa symbol appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. You get three respins with an expanded wild reel which is indicated by the figure of Medusa. This is something which I think is great because you will get all of your winning lines tripled in this feature. The Pegasus Bonus is the third and final bonus round, which is activated when 3 Pegasus symbols land on the reels. You choose one to reveal up to 50x your bet.

As a conclusion, the Medusa slot game is a high volatility slot game, so you need to give it the respect it deserves to get the most out of it. Thus , you need to be extra careful as you can easily burn through your bank roll very quickly with little reward. You would be wise to start with smaller stakes and get used to the game before increasing.

I was looking for slots that has a theme of a Greek or Roman Mythology i find several slots but i like this the most. Medusa Slot is a nice slot for everyone that especially search for mystical theme like me. This slot is fulfilled by different types of feature and that's gladly and awesome to experience! Whenever i feel uncomfortable to a slot i always decide to convince myself to play and experience it day by day so that i can make a memories from that slot or game although slot was a very easy to play casino game. It's not a problem even though they're SkillOnNet software slot i believe that every slot is best and have different good characteristics.

When it comes to graphics the Medusa Slot is fine and i don't see any problem there. The animation is great and i feel that the makers of this slot wants the players to feel the power and mysticism. The slot is a 5 reels and 25 pay lines slot this slot is also a Jackpot slot that's why when you luckily hit the 5 Medusa symbols but that's vaguely to happen but chances are you will strike those symbols. The most anticipated part of my winnings is from Medusa's once bitten symbols that rewarded me 10 free spins and also the stare glare power that one reel will become turn to stone and a wild symbols appear.

Well, it's impressive to play this slot because we all know Medusa as a character from mythology. The bonus that i hope to this slot is their Pegasus bonus that i didn't yet experience and strike. Well the Medusa slot was surpassing slot because of the other options like adjusting speed of playing spins if you want. Anyway i will grade this slot as B- for my experience and observations and also based on their available features.

Medusa is a great example of a slot that offers diversity, excellence and quality all at the same time. It shows that not only the bigger software providers can make high-quality slots. In my opinion this slot together with 300 Shields is probably the best game available from Skill On Net.

Not sure why this game loads here in Microgaming Quickfire, but this game has been developed by Skill On Net. I guess Microgaming has a deal with Skill On Net to offer games under their umbrella or something. Anyway, why do I think Medusa is such a great slot?

Simply because it offers so many options to win, and it has so many ways to trigger a feature which makes it almost surreal. Besides that the theme of Medusa is one mythological masterpiece as well of course. She sure had me under hypnosis and basically turned me into stone for a while when i had this game on auto-play lol.

Medusa has 25 paylines and 5 reels. The minimum bet on this game is €0.25. I played this game on a bet size of €1.00. During base game most of the wins aren't too spectacular since it's not easy to get a 5oak. The Medusa symbol which appears on the reels 2, 3 and 4 does not only act like a wild in this game, but also can trigger a very special bonus.

If all 3 of them appear at the same time on those reels, the "Turned To Stone" bonus gets triggered. What happens is that you'll receive 3 re-spins with a 3x multiplier, while one of the reels turns into an expanded wild. All you need is a little bit of luck on those other reels to have a wild appear there as well, and a 5oak is a feasible though. But even less would be sufficient to win big here. I find this feature being the hardest to trigger though.

My best score here is more than 120x bet size. If you think this was great, then wait until you hear about the free spins bonus. If you manage to collect 3 or more scatters, you'll find yourself winning the "Once Bitten" bonus which rewards 10 free spins and a 2x multiplier.

But check this out, during the free spins you can accumulate "Super Spins" when a soldier turns up on reel 3. Snakes from the left or right will attack the soldier and award additional super spins. Why do they call them super spins? Well, simply because they award a 5x multiplier! All the super spins are played after the regular free spins.

I once managed to have 6 super spins with the 5x multiplier where I've won more than 420x bet size. However, sometimes both features can be a bit disappointing when they only award 20x bet size.

Lastly there is also the Pegasus bonus, which gets triggered if you manage to get 3 horse symbols on reels 2, 3 or 4. During this bonus you have to choose one of the horses and this one will reveal a prize. Sometimes you'll win a prize while being allowed another pick. Usually you'll win maybe 7-10x bet size with max potential being 50x bet size.

This slot basically delivers in all aspects and that's why I definitely recommend this masterpiece.

My final rating for Medusa is 9.5/10.
