Playtech is one of the biggest companies in iGaming. Playtech has made many of the top-level slot games that players enjoy playing. That being said, one of their most popular series of games bears the name “Age of the Gods”. One of the newest iterations of this slot formula comes in the form of a new game. This game goes by the name of “Age of the Gods: Medusa and Monsters”. This is a review of this game.
The theme of the game
The theme of the Age of the Gods games is settled in ancient Greek mythology. The ancient Greeks were very creative people and they’ve created a vast mythology. It’s no coincidence that ancient Greek mythology is a very popular subject to this very day. This game centres on the mythological character of Medusa. This was a woman that turned people and objects to stone just by looking at them. The background consists of a shoreline roughed up by the angry sea. The music is very good and to the point. We think that you will enjoy the theme of this game.
How to play the game
There are various bet-levels that you can place in the game. That being said, the lowest bet is 0.50 coins. The biggest bet is 100 coins. The return to player rate of this game is 96.09%. The volatility is mid-to-high. This game is perfect for the players that favour taking a bit bigger risks. The game features 6 reels with 7 rows. This is an unusual reel structure, to say the least. There are 164 pay lines, in total – and this too is an unusual number of pay lines.
The game has some special features, too. One of them is the Medusa symbol that can expand and cover an entire reel. It’s a wild symbol and it replaces all other symbols except the scatter. One additional special feature is that all the symbols except the scatter can expand on the reels.
If you get three scatter symbols, then you will activate Medusa’s Gaze bonus. The symbol of Medusa will start moving from the sixth reel towards the first. The game ends when Medusa reaches the first reel. Along the way, she will petrify some of the high-paying symbols. This may win you big sums of money. Also, you can win money by winning the game’s jackpot. It can be triggered by any spin in the game.
Age of the Gods: Medusa and Monsters seem a bit outdated when compared to modern games. Playtech has to really work harder on building up some of the company’s games. There is great competition in the field of iGaming. We hope that the future Age of the Gods games will shine brighter than Medusa and Monsters.
