What is the Myth of Medusa Gold slot all about? We take a look at these Ancient Greek reels and wonder if it can compare to other Medusa Games.
When you think of the beautiful creatures that turn men to stone, you probably think of NextGen’s Medusa slot machine. It’s such an iconic game, that they even made several sequels as you can read in our Medusa Megaways review.
And you know what? This Novomatic machine doesn’t try. In fact, the only thing it shares is 5 reels and 3 rows of pretty Ancient Greek symbols. From helmet to Perseus, to Pegasus, you know you are in the ancient world of heroes and gods.
We should probably put that this Medusa is a little calmer and more tongue in cheek than the more famous named game.
A 5 of a kind win on any one of the 25 payline will get you a maximum of… just over 3 times your bet. That’s it.
Pretty dismal right? But the good news is that you get so many little wins here and there, you’ll forgive it quickly enough, especially as the free spin bonus come often.
How often? We rarely went 20 to 50 rounds without hitting it once.
You’ve probably done the math that in order to get anything worth cashing out, you are going to need a lot of wins on all 25 paylines.
Well, welcome to the Myth of Medusa Gold slot bonus rounds, where anything can happen! Namely, any wild or scatter than lands on reel 1 or 5 stays sticky for all the free spins.
Then there’s a special bonus than can land and give you a 3×3 mega symbols on all 3 middle reels – combined with those sticky wilds, you can come out with a good 50x your bet.
And finally, you get a little nod to the slot machine jackpot genre by the fact that you can collect 6 jackpot symbols to get 100x your bet. It’s not the millions of the Ancient Greek themed Divine Fortune slot game, but then again sometimes it’s fun to play with a monster that’s a little tamer.

No monster is as famous as Medusa in Ancient Greek Myth, and whilst she may not have a whole load of bite, she's pretty enough to entice in this Myth of Medusa Gold slot on mobile.
This is a low variance machine with 95% RTP, so don't expect huge wins, but that's ok. Sometimes it's great to watch some fun spins, with quick wins, and impressive free spins. And that's true enough here.
The reason we can't give it 5 stars is because the paytable isn't great. If only you got a multiplier or something. Still, we won't lie, that's just picking at something that is built into the game - we are talking a low volatility slot here.
Like complaining that you don't have enough lime in your Marguerita when we all know it's all about the Tequilla. Overall, a good effort from Novomatic slot games.
