You will be taken to a sunny island with clear light blue water seen under the grid and rocks around it. The sky is also light blue with white clouds and birds. The grid stands in the centre of the screen and is not very larger. Its frames are made of stone blocks. They are decorated with young branches with green leaves. The reels are grey, which is visible from the card symbols. They are in cartoon style and appear 3D.
There are also mythical creatures such as the winged horse Pegasus. Here are the Erymanthian Boar, the multi-headed serpentine Hydra and the Minotaur. The gold Medusa and a gold snake are the wilds. The Greek temple entrance labelled with ‘Bonus’ plays the scatter. The images are cartoonish and look great. The soundtrack is dramatic with the main melody playing that mixes with the sounds of reels and wins. The visual and sound performance of the game is superb and creates a pleasant atmosphere.
There are 10 paying symbols that include 5 low-value cards and 4 premiums as mythical animals. The bonus symbol has a payout too and there are 2 kinds of wilds, which can also land as spreading symbols.
To score wins you need to land 3 to 6 matching symbols on adjacent reels. They must start from the leftmost reel to the right. There are 4096 ways to win from the 6 reels and 4 rows.
The 10 pays 0.10, 0.20, 0.50 and 1 time your bet for 3 to 6 symbols in winning combinations. The J and Q card grant wins of 0.10, 0.20, 1 and 2 times the stake for 3 to 6 matching symbols on successive reels. The K and A also pay equally – 0.20, 0.30, 1 and 2 times the stake for 3 to 6 symbols.
The premiums include the winged horse Pegasus. It returns 0.20, 0.50, 1.50 and 3 times the stake for 3 to 6 symbols on adjacent reels. The Erymanthian Boar gives you 0.20 to 4 times the stake for 3 to 6 symbols. The multi-headed Hydra is second in value. It pays 0.30, 0.80, 2.50 and 5 times the stake for 3, 4, 5 and 6 symbols in winning combinations.
The most valuable of all symbols is the mythical creature Minotaur. Landing 2, 3, 4, 5 or6 of it on adjacently located reels pays 0.10, 0.50, 1, 5 and 10 times the stake. This is the only symbol that pays for 2 of a kind in the game.
The wild symbols are two – Medusa and the snake. Both substitute for missing symbols except for the bonus. Once a wild symbol hits a reel, there is a chance that more wilds appear on that reel. This is the Spreading Wilds feature that triggers both in the base game and free spins. You can have added 1, 2 or 3 extra wilds per trigger. The wild symbols appear on all reels except on reel 1.
The Bonus symbol can land on all reels except for reel 1, similarly to the wild. This is the icon with the Greek temple entrance with the word ‘BONUS’ on it. Landing 3, 4, 5 or 6 bonus symbols in a spin anywhere on the reels triggers the Free Games. Getting 3 scatters pays half the bet, while 4 return your full bet. The scatter is the only symbol that pays in any position landed on the grid. Before the free game start, you can choose one of two features: the Fortune or Glory feature.
The Fortune Feature offers you 8, 12, 15, 20, 3 or 40 free spins with an x2, x3, x5, x8, x10 or x20 win multiplier. You will have presented 6 boxes, of which you have to choose one to reveal the number of free spins number you win. From another set of 6 boxes, you have to pick one to determine your win multiplier.
All wins during the free games will be increased by the multiplier. You will also win from the Spreading Wild feature, which can trigger on any free spin with a landed wild. You can retrigger the Fortune feature while playing it with scatters and add 10 extra free spins. You will play them with the same coin value as the one of the triggering spin.
If you have selected the Glory Feature, you will have 6 boxes to choose from. This determines the number of free spins you get. These can be 5, 8, 10, 12, 15 or 20. The second set of 3 boxes determine whether you will win 1, 2 or 3 extra wilds in the rounds.
The extra wild is a random symbol, which can be any of the 9 regular paying ones (5 cards and 4 premium mythical animals). It plays as a wild when landed on reels 1 to 5 during free spins in the Glory Feature. As a wild, the extra symbol substitutes for all other except for the bonus symbol.
Thanks to the second wild, you have double as much chances to win from the Spreading Wild feature. You can retrigger the Glory Feature and win 10 extra free spins. You play them with the bet size of the triggering spin.
Medusa: Fortune and Glory is fresh and offers good chances to score wins. Its 4096 Megaways are active on each spin. The game includes two free spins modes that players can choose from. If you like Greek legends and myths, you can also play Artemis vs Medusa, Wrath of Medusa and Story of Hercules.
