Medusa Hot 1 Overview
Are you brave enough to travel to the Gorgon’s cave and defeat Medusa? This exciting new slot game from Swedish designer Relax Gaming will test your nerve as you look for ancient relics and jewels worth their weight in gold. Like Hercules 12 labours, you will be pitted against various beasts and dangerous foes in a one-on-one style battle screen too. Mechanically this is a 5-reel, 3-row game board with a range of features and a decent top payout amount of 7,500x the stake. Join the Greek Mythology fun using either the demo or the real version.
The features of this game begin with the wild bonus. The Medusa head is the wild in this game. It substitutes for all regular symbols to help form more wins. These wilds also come with attached multipliers. The next feature is a re-spin bonus triggered by landing two or more of the bonus symbols on the reels simultaneously. This game can lead you into the Medusa Hot 1 spins. There is also a fun free spin round and, finally, the Hot 1 bonus round, which makes all sticky icons wild. There is also a bonus buy option.
Theme and Symbols
The theme for this game is Greek Mythology, with a particular focus on the story of Medusa. Medusa was the most famous of the monsters known as Gorgons. Although she had a beautiful face, her hair was made entirely from snakes. She also could turn those who looked at her to stone. She was slain by hero Perseus, who cut off her head. This game has more than the story of Medusa shown in it; however, there is also the Minotaur, the Harpies and the daughter of Poseidon on the reels. In this sense, Yggdrasil has probably gone for a more generalised Greek mythology theme.
The background for this game is Medusa’s lair. From the stalagmites and stalactites you can see here, the lair is located in a deep and dark cave set somewhere under one of the Greek islands. In the myth of Medusa, the lair is a ruined temple built in the underworld. Really there should be scattered stone statues of all of the men who have entered the lair and have had Medusa’s power inflicted upon them. Then again, Yggdrasil does a good job of creating the ruined temple feeling with collapsed columns and swords of the fallen sticking out of the ground here and there.
The playing window is a classic temple entrance design, with all symbols sitting in formation within the entrance.
The symbols for this game are split into low-value, high value and special symbols. The low-value symbols are the J, Q, K and A in playing card royals. These payout in the region of 5x to 100x the stake for the top combinations. On the other hand, the higher value symbols are the various heroes and beasts. These comprise the purple eagle, the club-wielding golden hero, the centurion, the water nymph, the cat god, and the Minotaur. The Minotaur is the most valuable symbol, worth 1,500x the stake for the top combination. The specials for this game are the wild, Medusa, and the bonus symbol, the gate to Medusa’s lair.
Medusa Hot 1 is played on a 5-reel, 3- row machine with 15 fixed pay lines. To win combinations, players must land three or more matching symbols on pay lines moving from left to right, starting from the leftmost reel.
The betting range for Medusa Hot 1 is 20p to £40 per spin. To adjust their bet levels, players can toggle their stake up and down using the tool located at the bottom left-hand side of the screen.
Further information, including a short tutorial and a display of the paytable, can be found via the menu button in the right-hand corner of the screen. The spin and auto spin buttons are located in the centre of the screen.
Volatility for this slot is rated in the high range. The return to player percentage for Medusa Hot 1 is 96.21%, which is above average. The biggest payout that players can win on one spin is 7,500x your stake.
The first bonus included in this game is the wild symbols bonus. Medusa heads are the wilds for this game and will substitute for other regular symbols to help score wins. A 2x multiplier also boosts all wins that include a wild.
The next feature is the mystery re-spins feature, triggered when players land two bonus symbols anywhere on the reels simultaneously. The two reels with the bonus symbols are then frozen, while the rest of the reels spin once. Depending on the re-spin that occurs, the bonuses could change into other icons such as wilds or wilds with a 5x booster attached, hence the mystery symbols name.
Next on the features list is the free spins game triggered by landing three or more bonus icons on the reels simultaneously. Doing so will award you with seven free spins, with all of the bonus symbols sticking to the reels. Any new scatters that comes onto the reels also become sticky and award an extra spin.
On your last spin, the Hot 1 final bonus round is triggered. This makes all the sticky ions into wilds and gives you one last spin.
Finally, a bonus buy option lets you buy your way into the free spins.
Hopefully, players will come away from this game with more than just a severed head. If they are clever and a little lucky, they could end up with as much as 7,500x their stake. This, in combination with a high RTP and plenty of features, makes this a good new product from the Swedish studio. Players should still be aware of the high volatility, though.
