The symbol with the Medusa image on it is the MEDUSA WILD symbol in the game. MEDUSA WILD symbols can stand for any other symbol, except SCATTER symbols to make the best possible winning combination.

During the Medusa’s Gaze Free Games feature, the MEDUSA WILD symbol only appears as a stacked shifting wild symbol.


The Shield symbol is the SCATTER symbol in the game. SCATTER symbols are stacked 2 symbols high, only appear on reels #2, #4 and #6, and only appear during the main game.

When SCATTER symbols land simultaneously on reels #2, #4 and #6 during the main game, the Medusa’s Gaze Free Games feature is triggered.

The high-paying symbol you picked will lock to the reels when it lands during free games.

The 2 high-paying symbols that were not picked do not appear on the reels during this feature.

During the Medusa’s Gaze Free Games feature, the MEDUSA WILD symbol only appears as a stacked shifting wild symbol. The stacked MEDUSA WILD symbol starts free games on reel #6, and shifts 1 reel left on every subsequent spin. The final free game takes place with the stacked MEDUSA WILD symbol on reel #1.

During the Medusa’s Gaze Free Games feature the reels are spun automatically using the same bet per line as on the spin that triggered the feature. The win for each spin is displayed in the WIN field below the reels. The total win for the Free Games round is shown in the TOTAL WIN field.

When all free games have been played, click CONTINUE on the winnings summary to return to the main game reels.
