Temple of Medusa is a June 2021 video slot—from developer All41 Studios and supplier Microgaming—adaptation of the Gorgon monster Medusa, with snaky hair locks, from Greek mythology. A part woman, part serpent whose eyes transformed victims into stony figures; Medusa’s abode—like goddess Artemis—is the title-inspiring Corfu-based Temple of Artemis.
Themes: Greek architecture, mythology, deities, transformation, runes, monsters, and gladiatorial artifacts. All41 Studios’ other mythological games: Book of Atem WowPot (August 2020), Book of Atem (December 2019), Arena of Gold (April 2020), Tiki Reward (October 2020), and Ingots of Cai Shen (January 2021).
One symbol (golden portal) requires two combinations. Eleven symbols (“W” serpents, horse Pegasus, Chrysaor boar, helmet, sandals, sword, A, K, Q, J, and 10) require three, or four, or five winning combinations.
Temple of Medusa Game Characteristics
Temple of Medusa’s exceptional features: two scatters; two wilds; four sets of reactivable free games with direction-based repopulating wilds; and X5000 payout.
The setting of the gray 5X3 grid, which has 25 rightward pay lines, is the entrance of an old off-white Temple of Artemis—on a misty teal-lit realm—whose columns have twining dark green serpents.
Temple of Medusa’s 22 total bets: $0.10 (minimum bet), $0.20, $0.30, $0.40, $0.50, $0.60, $0.80, $1.00, $1.50, $2.00, $2.50, $3.00, $4.00, $5.00, $6.00, $7.50, $8.00, $10.00, $15.00, $20.00, $30.00, and $40.00 (maximum bet). Quick bets: $0.20, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $10.00, and $40.00.
Temple of Medusa has three special and ten symbols. Special symbols: the first scatter-and-substituting wild is a pit of “W” serpents; the second scatter-and-free games activator is a ringed golden “scatter” portal in inner reels; and the second wild is the Medusa’s head that does clone “W” serpents.
Ordinary symbols: flying horse Pegasus, originating from Medusa’s beheading; flying Chrysaor boar; red-plumed white-and-golden gladiator helmet; god Hermes’ bejeweled white-winged sandals Talaria of Mercury; (Medusa’s killer) Perseus’ sword Harpe; and runic gray A, K, Q, J, and 10.
Temple of Medusa’ regular payouts: from $0.04 to $600.00. Three golden portals pay X2. Three “W” serpents pay X2.50, four “W” serpents pay X10, and five “W” serpents pay X25. Three 10 or J pay X0.20, four 10 or J pay X1, and five 10 or J pay X2. Three Q or K or A pay X0.50; four Q or K or A pay X1.50; and five Q or K or A pay X3.
Three swords or sandals pay X1, four swords or sandals pay X2, and five swords or sandals pay X5. Three helmets pay X1, four helmets pay X4, and five helmets pay X8. Three boars pay X1.50, four boars pay X5, and five boars pay X10. Three horses pay X2, four horses pay X8, and five horses pay X15.
The Medusa’s heads clone “W” serpents onto its adjacent right-and-left spaces, or top-and-bottom spaces, or sparsely/densely all it around—this brings between two and eight more wilds around it, potentially forming up to nine wilds across the grid.
Three ringed portals are followed by a free games-choosing session whose options are: 15 free games with Medusa’s head amid two right-and-left/top-and-bottom “W” serpents; 10 free games with Medusa between four crowded/spaced “W”; 5 free games with Medusa between eight crowded “W”; or unspecified free games with Medusa between a randomized “W” format. The X5000 top lucky prize amounts (5000X40) to a $200000.00 non-progressive jackpot.
Temple of Medusa has HTML5-based software, 10-100 auto play and fast modes, and mobile/desktop compatibility. Sounds: ambient classic music amid drumming; and jingling, clanging, plopping, and hissing effects. The animated 3D graphics: fiery flapping wings, glowing, luminous and glittery clones, dolly zooming, lightning, and writhing and tongue-flicking snakes.
