Medusa 2 Slot Game
The Medusa 2 slot game is a creation of Next Gen. It is the sequel to the very popular Medusa game, and it is obvious from the get go that vast improvements have been made. With better graphics, added animations, plus a whole lot of extra creepy ambience, The Medusa 2 slot game is an example of how sequels should be done. The game can be played now on desktop computer via a browser, or on mobile phone or tablet.
For those unfamiliar with Greek mythology or the first Medusa game, Medusa is a terrible monster that is part snake, part beautiful woman. Upon first seeing her, an ambitious guy may be tempted to ask her out, right up until it became evident that Medusa has live snakes instead of hair. And this isn’t even taking into account the fact that making eye contact with her will reduce you to a stone statue. The best approach is probably to run for the hills and wait for Persius, the Greek hero credited with killing her, to step in and save the day.
Medusa 2 Game Play
The Medusa 2 slot game uses a 5 reel play system, but does not have adjustable betting lines. Instead, the Reel Play betting system is utilised, which offers a whopping 243 ways to win. The trade off here is that although there are a huge number of betting lines, the player is not granted any strategic options, and is really only able to simply spin the reels and hope for the best. Those who prefer a more relaxed slot game experience will appreciate this, but those who enjoy a more hands on approach will be disappointed.
Beyond this there really isn’t much to say about the Medusa 2 slot game play system. With no Super Bet function, the only button a player will ever have to worry about pressing is the spin button. Medusa 2 may be an achievement in the graphics and presentation department, but the game play is perhaps a little lacking. Were it not for the outstanding bonuses one might have accused the game of being thin.
The Medusa 2 slot game really comes to life with its bonus features. Upon scatter symbols being matched, shown as the written words Medusa 2, 7 free spins are granted. During these free spins if Medusa appears on the reels, she will be locked in place for the remaining spins. Given that she is a wild symbol, this is obviously extremely lucrative.
The second bonus feature involves a soldier attacking Medusa on the reels, which can happen randomly. The soldier will be turned to stone, and instantly transform into a stack of three extra wilds. This event does happen completely at random with no way for the player to control it, but is always a very welcome sight. The sequence is also extremely well animated, so much so that one can’t help but feel that Next Gen should release a feature film. Not very likely, but one lives in hope.
