Medusa Megaways Game Features

The wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except for the scatter and the soldier symbols. The scatter symbol has the games logo on it and this symbol can trigger the free games feature. The soldier symbol has a fighter on it, and it can appear on the extra reel during the free games feature only. It will upgrade to either a wild or scatter symbol. Aside from these three special symbols there are ten other symbols in Medusa Megaways and they are a white horse with wings, soldiers with armour, a gold symbol with an emblem on it, a gold and silver ring as well as some gold shoes with wings on the sides if them. There are also the Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10 symbols in this slot. 

Medusa Megaways Free Spins and bonuses

Three scatter symbols anywhere on the screen will award ten free games and each additional scatter that appears after this will add an extra five free games!  


The number of symbol positions appearing on each reel of the main reel range will be determined randomly at the beginning of each game round. The reels one and six contain two, three, four, five, six and seven symbol position each game round while reels two, three, four and five can contain two, three, four, five or six symbol positions each game round. The number of symbol positions is determined independently for each reel.   

With the extra reel, each game round contains between 324 and 117, 649 total ways to win.  

Extra Reel  

The extra reel adds a symbol reaction to each reel and the extra reel appears above reels two, three, four and five only. The scatter can only appear on the extra reel during the free games feature if revealed through the snake strike feature.  


A reaction is triggered whenever one or more winning combinations occur and once all applicable wins have been paid, every symbol appearing in a winning combination is removed from its respective reel. Any remaining symbol will cascade downwards on the reels and shift left on the extra reel, if applicable. The empty reel positions are populated by new symbols appearing from above each respective reel on the main reel array and from the right of the extra reel. 

Keep in mind that the reactions feature can be retriggered indefinitely and can be triggered during the free games feature.  

Medusa’s Gaze Feature 

This feature may be triggered whenever one or more wild symbols appear on the extra reel and the reels directly below the wild symbols are covered by Medusa. Medusa will replace one or more symbols on the covered reels with the wild symbols. Medusa can replace any symbol with the wild except for the scatter. Medusa’s gaze feature can be triggered again after each reaction and can also be triggered during the free games feature.  

Unlimited Win Multiplier Feature 

The win multiplier will start at 2x and will increase by one before each reaction. The win multiplier remains at its current values at the commencement of the next free game round. The win multiplier can increase indefinitely, and it will return to 1x at the completion of the free games feature.  

Snake Strike Feature 

Snakes appear to the left and the right of the extra reel throughout the free games feature. The snake strike feature is triggered whenever one or more solider symbols appear on the extra reel during the free games. Each soldier that appears on the extra reel is attacked by one of the two snakes. If the soldier is attacked by the left snake, then the symbol position will turn into a wild. However, if the soldier is attacked by the right snake, then the symbol position turns into a scatter.

This is triggered once all the free games have been completed and two options will be presented. You have the opportunity to choose to collect the current free games win or the replay the free games feature. If you collect the current free games win then the free games feature will end.
