What’s The Deal?
The ancient Greek legend of Medusa is the theme of this new release from Microgaming and All 41 Studios.
I don’t know about you, but I love getting stuck into a Greek legend or two (try Parthenon Quest for Immortality by the way, that’s another cracker), so we were excited to adjust our chlamys (cloak) around the ol’ Wombat belly and settle down for a spin.
Temple Of Medusa slot comes with walking wilds that move horizontally, vertically and diagonally to make up extra winning combos! Plus a random drop base game bonus of 1000x your bet…
Are you ready to meet old snake hair, Wombat fans? She needs a head-piece like Queen Naert in the Scroll of Dead slot if you ask me…..
Graphics and Theme
The design isn’t the best we’ve seen, but does the trick of creating a creepy sinister atmosphere.
The reels are set on green gloomy mist and with a greek temple in the background, and the music is epic as the legend itself.
It’s exactly the kind of place you’d meet a Sheila who can turn you into stone… Shudder.
Temple of Medusa Slot Game Play
Temple of Medusa slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 pay-lines. The bet range is from 0.10 to 40.00 per spin. This a high volatility game (maybe not as volatile as the El Paso Gunfire slot, but still) and the maximum pay out is 1,000x your wager.
The reel icons are the 10, J, Q , K & A playing cards representing the low value icons and a sword, gladiator sandals, battle helmets, plus winged horse, Pegasus as the high value icons.
There are 2 Wild icons in play, the standard wild and Medusa – bit more on her below…
This can trigger completely at random in the base game and can give you an instant cash win of 1,000 x your total stake.
Medusa Wilds can spread vertically, horizontally and diagonally when they land, and will transform adjacent icons into wilds, too. Bonza!
They will land on middle 3 reels only.
Hit 3x of the scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4 middle reels and it’s time to get dizzy…
Now you must pick between these awesome modifiers:
15x Free spins with Spreading Wilds in 1 direction.
10x Free spins with Spreading Wilds in 2 directions.
Or 5x Free Spins with Spreading Wilds all directions.|
You can also re-trigger the bonus by landing 3x more of the Scatters
We like the game play and atmosphere in Temple Of Medusa slot, but the maths are a bit off. The volatility is pretty high while the max possible win is a bit on the low side -which left this Wombat a little bit underwhelmed…
Wombat score: 3.9/5
