How to Play

Medusa’s Golden Gaze slot is one of several Medusa-themed online slot games on the net. However, unlike the other titles (which mainly come from NextGen Gaming’s vault), this particular release is from 2By2 Gaming.

The online slot is simplistic in terms of how it looks, but the gameplay is anything but. There are plenty of nifty little features worked into the design of this Greek mythology online slot to whet your appetite.

Before we dive into the logistics of Medusa’s Golden Gaze slot, it is worth looking at the payline structure, wagering range and prizes. The 2By2 Gaming online slot is played over 5 reels and 25 lines, with players able to slap down bets costing anything from 25p a turn up to £25 a spin. Medusa’s Golden Gaze has a return to player rate of just over 95%, and there is a non-progressive prize worth 20x a line bet up for grabs in this release.

Special Features

There is a considerable number of features to get through in Medusa's Golden Gaze slot, starting with wilds. These symbols appear as the online slot’s logo, and they can substitute for all other icons, save for temples. 

Those temples pop up as bonus symbols, and can trigger a free spin feature, should three or more appear on the reels in the base game.

The base game also sees two randomly triggered features comes into play. The first of these is the Mystery Stack feature. It can see an entire stack of mystery symbols pop up onto the reels of Medusa's Golden Gaze slot. Those mystery symbols will then transform into another icon, potentially offering up a win to players.

A duplicating feature can also occur at random in Medusa's Golden Gaze slot. It can fill the first reel with a stack of symbols and then copy that reel to another of the other four reels. You could even end up with all five reels displaying the same symbols if you strike it lucky.

Fun Facts!

Medusa's Golden Gaze slot is a highly entertaining Greek mythology-inspired game based upon the famous priestess. How much do you know about Medusa and her distinctive head of hair?

In classical mythology, Medusa is part of the three monster-like sisters collectively called Gorgons. Medusa is sister to Euryale and Stheno and they're born to sibling deities, Phorcys and Ceto. In appearance, Medusa is well-known for her monstrous visage; venomous snake hair, winged body and the ability to turn those who look into her eyes to stones. Of course, these attributes are found on her sisters, too.

According to Greek mythology, Medusa was a beautiful priestess of Athena. But due to her relations with god Poseidon at Athena's temple, Athena punished her of this violation by turning her into the known monster that she became. Medusa was beheaded by the hero Perseus and, subsequently, the head was used as a weapon. Perseus then gave the head to Athena to put on her shield. Likewise, it is said that she remained Athena's priestess after her death. Medusa was restored to life with new fresh hair.


The overly complicated nature of the free spin bonus in this game is what makes it most appealing. There are plenty of chances to land wins, and the randomly triggered bonuses come into play rather frequently.

It may look basic, but there is every reason to claim that Medusa’s Golden Gaze slot could go on to be as popular as NextGen Gaming’s Medusa series of online slots. This one is certainly not a bad effort by 2By2 Gaming by any stretch.
