NextGen takes their famous snake queen and add up to 117649 ways to win in this beautiful Medusa Megaways mobile slot machine.
And this game is beautiful. With the Necropolis in ruins and thunder lighting up a red murderous sky, this ancient Greek monster has only grown better with age.
She is still as powerful and as beautiful as ever, and you’ll see her pop up as the wild symbols across all 6 reels, as well as the special extra 7th reel running on the top.
These reels are fluid, changing in numbers of paying symbols from 2 to 7, giving you as ‘little’ as 324 ways to win on a bad spin. And there’s not really that many bad spins with these avalanching Medusa Megaways reels.
Fans of other Megaways games will notice that this one doesn’t do things too differently.
You get avalanching wins, which gives you lots of little wins on the reels and keeps things flowing. You get scatters and free spins where on every win the multiplier is increased by one.
So far, it’s almost spin to spin like Bonanza or even the Extra Chilli slot game. Which is fine, because they are both great real money games and it’s these mechanics that make them popular with online casino players.
For one, if the Medusa wild lands on the top extra 7th row, she can expand to cover the reel below her, adding a little zing to your wins.
For two, during the free spins, you get an extra symbol on the 7th row, which basically gives you more wilds and more scatters. A nice touch, but mostly just adds a little drama to a fairly dramatic volatile slot, to begin with.
Yes, there are major wins in the Medusa Megaways free spins, but getting 100x your bet isn’t the easiest thing. Best left for that last spin at the end of the night.
Ultimately, what you have here is the theme from the Medusa 2 slot machine, with familiar Megaways mechanics. If you love this gameplay, you’ll enjoy this casino game.

Wild: Medusa is the wild symbol and can be used to replace any other symbol on the reel except scatter and the soldier symbol in free spins.
Avalanching Reels: On every win, the symbols will disappear and more will come tumbling down from above. You then get another chance at catching another win.
Medusa Gaze Feature: Whenever one or more wild symbols appear on the extra reel above the game, this wild may expand and cover the reel below it. She will stay on screen if she is part of an avalanching win.
Free Game Feature: 3 scatter symbols anywhere on screen trigger 10 free games. Any additional scatter caught gives you an extra +5 spins to the bonus.
The bonus game starts with a 2x multiplier, and each win you get increases that multiplier by 1.
The extra reel above the 5 reels of this Megaways slot also gets some action, as you get an extra soldier symbol randomly show up. If the snake on the left of the reel attacks the soldier, he turns wild and triggers an expanded wild. If the snake on the right strikes, it turns the solider into a scatter symbol.
Temptation Feature: Once you've finished the free spins, you'll be given a choice.
You can take your winnings and go back to the base game. Or you can forfeit those wins and try your luck on the free spin bonus round again.
Buy Pass Feature: This allows you to buy the free spin feature. You pay 100x your bet and get 10 free spins to try and cover your cost, and hopefully a little more.
Megaways: This Medusa Megaways slot has 6 reels where the number of symbols on the reels can change from 2 to 7 symbols at any one time, giving you anything from 324 ways to win to 117,649 total ways to win. If you want to know more read our what is a Megaways video slot blog post.
We've always been big fans of the original Medusa slot games by NextGen, but this is nothing like the original.
Sure they've kept the theme, but this Medusa Megaways slot on mobile has far more in common with its other Megaways brothers and sisters, only adding some expanding wilds to the mix to stand out.
Is this the best use of the Megaways reels? Probably not. But it's using very similar mechanics to both the Bonanza game and Extra Chilli, so fans of the genre will find plenty here to love, including some decent top wins.
Medusa Megaways is a 6 reel slot with an extra row at the top, with changing numbers of symbols on the reels, giving you up to 117,649 ways to win. You'll find avalanching reels, expanded wilds, scatters and free spins with increasing multipliers.
