Mighty Medusa Slot Review

Prepare to face the enchanting gaze of Mighty Medusa, a 6×4 high volatility video slot with an RTP of 96.6% released by Habanero Systems in April of 2022. A gorgon from Greek mythology, Medusa was infamous for her snake hair and gaze which could turn a person into a stone statue.

Luckily, in this video slot, Medusa is actually a wild, as is the icon that says WILD, and they can both substitute for any symbol except for a scatter. The snakes, appearing only in the base game, are the scatter symbol, and will trigger 7, 12, 25, or 100 free games depending on if you get 3, 4, 5, or 6 of them respectively.

Unlike normal icons, which pay when they are in subsequent reels starting from the first one, so long as they are connected, scatters pay from any position.

Medusa Duel

Any time the Hercules icon appears next to the Medusa icon they do a battle. This causes a random symbol to be replaced by a wild. If this occurs during the free spins round then Hercules turns to stone and also becomes a wild.

Another feature of the free spin rounds is that a 2×2 pegasus icon can appear randomly on reels 1 and 2 and 5 and 6 before the reels land. On top of that, a 2×2 Medusa wild symbol is present on the middle reel for the totality of the free spins game.

466 Ways to Win

There are 466 different possible winning combinations, going left to right, starting at the first reel and continuing on sequentially and in a connected fashion.

The highest paying icons are Medusa, WILD, Pegasus, Hercules, winged shoes, and the helmet. The lower paying icons are A, K, Q, and J. You must play exactly 30 coins, but you can adjust both the coin value and betting level.


Even mere mortals can win big with the Mighty Medusa video slot. This game matches the high standards we have come to expect from Habanero Systems. There are some pretty cool features, like the 2×2 Medus wild in bonus games, or the Hercules vs Medusa duel.

The theme is great because everyone loves ancient mythology and the legends we grew up learning about. The graphical effects are pretty sweet too. Mighty Medusa is just a great game overall.
