Mark of Medusa – Pokies based around Greek Myth
Found on Spin Palace, Mark of Medusa is a Microgaming pokie based around a Greek myth, namely that of Medusa, whose hair was said to be made of snakes and who could turn people into stone just by looking at them. Greek myths have played a prominent role in Microgaming titles, and this is another in a long line, and one that is executed just as well as the others.
Although dated, the graphics on Mark of Medusa are not too bad. The backdrop is of Ancient Greece, the symbols include things that we commonly associate with Greek mythology and some of these generate big wins. The biggest of all, and by some way, is the wild symbol, which comes in the form of Medusa herself. This returns as much as 10,000 coins if you get five of them, and a quarter of that if you get four of them.
The second highest paying symbol will only get you 1,000, and the standard symbols, including the J, Q and K, return very little at all.
Mark of Medusa has an impressive betting range, and one that should keep low-stake and high-stake players happy. The minimum bet is just $0.01 per line, and the maximum goes up to $125 per spin.
The main feature on the Mark of Medusa slot is a free spins round, with a maximum of 25 free spins, all of which come with a 3x multiplier. You need 5 of the scatter symbols for this many free spins, but even if you get just 3 of them, you’ll still get a total of 15 free spins.
Mark of Medusa was released in 2008, so it has a good few years behind it, and this shows. However, there is still some merit to this title, with a strong RTP, a big bonus feature and a huge wild all making it a worthwhile title.
