Temple of Medusa Review
Even if you are not a Greek mythology buff, you have probably heard of Medusa. A monster whose hair was comprised of deadly snakes.
A seemingly beautiful woman whose gaze could turn people into stone. A very dangerous enemy to have.
Now, All41 Studios and Microgaming allow us to take a closer look at her in Temple of Medusa. Will we make it out alive with our prize, or Medusa’s gaze freezes us in place?
- Highly volatile with a 5000x jackpot
- Three free spins options
- Spreading Wilds bonus
Medusa is a name that needs no introduction. With living, venomous snakes instead of hair, she makes for an imposing figure.
Add the powers of petrification, and she becomes a delightful villain that has appeared frequently over the years. As such, her starring in this online slot is nothing new.
Players who dare meet her petrifying gaze can look forward to high variance and a 5000x jackpot. To help you land this win, you have spreading Wilds, Wild-Scatters, and free spins special features.
Theme, Graphics and Sounds
We have to commend All41 Studios for making a gorgeous background image.
The dangerous green mist covers many details. However, we can see cracked ivory pillars and ruined statues that lead inside a huge structure. It really feels like you are about to enter an abandoned temple.
On each side of the reels are two beautifully animated snakes. The background also changes slightly when you activate free spins.
You play this game on a five-reel, three-row board with twenty-five fixed paylines. That means we cannot toggle individual paylines on or off to form winning combinations.
To win, find at least three matching symbols in adjacent positions, starting with the leftmost reel. All winning combinations must follow an active payline, or their cash prize will not be granted.
When a Medusa Wild appears on the board, it activates the Spreading Wilds bonus. It will spread standard Wilds in one, two or all directions!
Wilds can be spread horizontally, vertically or diagonally. The bonus drastically increases your chances of winning.
Temple of Medusa Free Spins
Landing three scatters on reels two, three, and four to activate the free spins bonus. This allows you to choose one of four free spins options.
- 15 free spins with spreading Wilds in one direction
- 10 free spins with spreading Wilds in two directions
- 5 free spins with spreading Wilds in all directions
- Mystery free spins, where the number of free spins and type of spreading Wilds is assigned randomly every time
It is possible to retrigger free spins by finding three additional scatters.
Where To Play Temple of Medusa?
RTP, bet sizes and volatility
All41 Studios’ release has an RTP of 96.4%. This is above the industry average, which sits at 96%.
You can bet between $0.10 and $40 on each round.
Temple of Medusa has a high volatility, which is very clear after you play it for a while.
While bonuses are not rare, they rarely lead to any substantial wins. If you want to win big, you need to be prepared to work for it!
Still, some effort for a 5000x jackpot is more than worth it in our eyes.
While all the available bonuses are simple, they do a great job at keeping you engaged. Spreading Wilds help tide you over until you trigger free spins.
From there, you can decide how risky you want to play it by choosing your free spins option. On top of that, this slot offers awesome gameplay with a 5000x top prize and great visuals.
As such, the risk of Medusa turning you to stone is well worth it for a game this exciting.
We rate this release 3 out of 5 stars.
