How the Temple of Medusa works
Welcome to the small Greek island of Corfu, more precisely to the Temple of Artemis dedicated to Medusa. This figure of Greek mythology is reputed to terrify those who meet her to the point that they freeze into stone at the mere sight of her. Instead of turning those she meets into stone, the Medusa in this game turns them into Wild, which can be quite interesting in our search for the jackpot!
Temple of Medusa is a slot game developed and published by online game provider Microgaming. It has been available at most online casinos since 11 June 2021. Its payout ratio to the player is quite high at 96.4%, its volatility is high and its maximum winning potential is 5,000 times the starting bet. The starting grid is quite classic and consists of 5 reels with 3 symbols each, but the operation is rather original. In addition to the free spins bonus, there are 2 special features available in the base game of Temple of Medusa. First of all, the Medusa symbol is actually a Wild, and as quickly explained above, each time this Medusa Wild appears on the grid, adjacent symbols will be transformed into a Wild according to a pattern is randomly chosen from 7 patterns:
One of the two diagonals ;
Horizontal + vertical ;
Both diagonals ;
All adjacent symbols.
If two or more Medusa Wild symbols appear, a random pattern will be chosen for each Medusa Wild. In addition to this feature, a Lucky Jackpot can be revealed at any time during the base game and simply awards you a win of 5,000 times your bet!

Our review of Temple of Medusa
Microgaming continues to provide slots following the same rules: a classic grid, classic connections and a small number of fairly original features. Graphics and animation are not a priority when creating a Microgaming slot, but Temple of Medusa has some pretty smooth and polished animations. The impressive winning potential and high volatility are a real plus on this slot, while the random jackpot in the base game adds a good dose of suspense to each payout. The possibility to choose the volatility of the free spins bonus through several options is very interesting although a large majority of players will certainly choose the Mystery Bonus aiming for the maximum setup. In the end, Temple of Medusa is a very good slot machine that could very well win you the jackpot. Don't be stumped by Medusa's snake hair!
