Medusa Hot 1 Slot Overview

Medusa Hot 1 Slot is a new casino slot that has been created through a collaboration between Hot Rise Games and Relax Gaming. We were introduced to this Hot 1 mechanic within the slot Legion Hot 1, where just like in its name, you could take part in a final spin within the Free Spins feature that gave phenomenal opportunities to win big. Everything built up gradually during the spins before, but it was clearly on the last one that you could scoop up the big wins. This time we get to meet Medusa, a woman who was once very beautiful, but who then had her appearance changed by Athena, in an attempt to revenge on Poseidon. Her hair was replaced with slithering snakes and those who happened to look her directly in the eyes were turned to stone. It's certainly a risky place we've ended up in, but if you play your cards right, you can scoop up festive winnings along the spins. Let's find out what else you can expect to see during the spins.

Base game

Medusa Hot 1 is a video slot from Hot Rise Games in partnership with Relax Gaming, which features 5 reels, 3 rows and 15 paylines. You can choose between making a Min.bet of 0.20 and a Max.bet of 40. The RTP is around the average, where in this slot we have an RTP of 96.21%. Medusa Hot 1 has a hit frequency of 39.85% and a medium/high volatility, where the lucky player can win up to 5719X the bet.

Within this gaming adventure along with the stunning Medusa, we have a bunch of great features to help us in the hunt for the big wins. The features are Wild Symbol, Mystery Respin, Free Spins, Hot 1 and Bonus Buy.

Medusa Hot 1 Slot Information

The game design is based on a Medusa theme, where we can scoop up some big wins among a bunch of powerful creatures. In the background of the reels, you can see pillars with plants winding around them in a dungeon-like place. You can play this slot on all the device’s notepads, desktops and mobiles. You create a winning combination by landing 3 or more of the same symbol types on adjacent reels starting on the far left.

The lower paying symbols are J, Q, K and A. The higher paying symbols are mythological creatures in the colors brown, purple, turquoise, blue, yellow and red. The game's wild symbol is Medusa herself and the symbol with a snake is the scatter symbol. Let's find out what the features do.

You can win up to 5719X the bet.

What features are available in the slot Medusa Hot 1?

The features are Wild Symbol, Mystery Respin, Free Spins, Hot 1 and Bonus Buy.

Mystery Respin feature

Wild Symbol

The game's wild symbol helps to create more winning combinations by substituting for other symbols, except for the scatter symbol. When you create a win with one or more wild symbols, the win is multiplied by 2X. When you activate the Medusa Power Respin, the multiplier will increase to 5X.

Mystery Respin

If you land 2 scatter symbols, the Mystery Respin feature is activated. The reels on which the scatter symbol landed will be locked and then the other reels will respin. Through this respin, the Free Spins feature can be activated and when you receive a respin, you can take part in one of 3 respin features. They are and do the following:

Bonus Change Respin = When you receive this, the scatter symbols will not change into anything else.

Medusa Wild Respin = When you get this, the scatter symbols will turn into wild symbols before the respin.

Medusa Power Respin = When you receive this, the scatter symbols will turn into wild symbols before the respin and a 5X multiplier will be applied to wins created with one or more wild symbols.

Free Spins

If you land 3 or more scatter symbols, the Free Spins feature is activated. You will then be welcomed with 7 free spins and during these spins, the scatter symbols you had at activation will turn into sticky symbols. All reels will spin, where the sticky symbols will turn into the lowest character symbol from start. If you then land a new scatter symbol, you will receive an extra spin and in addition all scatter symbols will turn into the next higher paying character symbol. This then continues up to the highest paying character symbol available.

Free Spins feature

Hot 1

When you spin the reels and have one free spin left, this spin turns into the Hot 1. All scatter symbols that you have landed during the previous spins that are sticky, will turn into wild symbols on this special spin. If you land a scatter symbol during this Hot 1 spin, it will also become a sticky wild and you will receive an extra Hot 1 spin.

Bonus Buy

If you want to take advantage of the bonus game right away, you can use the Bonus Buy feature. You pay 100X the bet and then 3 to 5 scatter symbols will land, activating the bonus game.

Medusa Hot 1 Slot Conclusion

Assuming you don't watch Medusa straight into her eyes, this is a very beautiful place that the eyes get to experience. In their previous release, Legion Hot 1, it was the shields and free spins that were in the focus, this time the shield features have been replaced with exciting respins, which can result in big bonanzas. During the base game spins, the Medusa wild symbol helps to create more winning combinations and the wins created with the help of this character will be multiplied by 2X. It is clearly the free spins feature that is the star of the game and to activate this requires 3 or more scatter symbols. However, if you only land 2 scatter symbols, you're not screwed, instead you'll get to take part in one of 3 different respin features, which can help to activate the bonus game. Among these respin options, there is the Medusa Power Respin, which will turn the scatter symbols into wild symbols and also apply a 5X multiplier to the wins involving one or more wild symbols.

By activating the free spins feature, you can take part in lucrative spins that can generate really big wins. These spins constantly build up the potential to win big, towards the last spin taking place, namely the Hot 1 spin. There, all scatter symbols that have been accumulated during the spins will turn into wild symbols. The gameplay is once again entertaining, where, as in Wild Chapo, you get your expectations raised before the last spin. Within the previous version they used a slightly lower potential maximum win, which they have more than doubled within this slot and the game's RTP is once again within a solid size. It makes up for an entertaining gaming experience, but you are clearly very dependent on landing multiple scatter symbols for the Hot 1 spin to generate a notable win. It is certainly a very volatile last spin and many times you leave the bonus game with smaller wins, but occasionally the slot is showered with hefty wins.

Medusa Hot 1 is a slot where we get to enjoy an intense free spins feature where the atmosphere is constantly built up, which is then topped off with an extremely lucrative Hot 1 spin.
