Mount Olympus – The Revenge of Medusa Slots

Mount-Olympus-The-Revenge-of-MedusaMount Olympus is a game created by Microgaming, the developer choosing for it a Greek mythology inspired theme, with the Medusa mentioned by the sub-title being one of the creatures from their stories. The Medusa was a woman with snakes instead of hair on her head, and a look at her was enough to turn men into stone. It’s a design that doesn’t try to look like it’s inspired by Ancient Greece, being more appropriate in scary slots, at least going by the way the symbols are designed.

You can win prizes of up to $10,000 by playing Mount Olympus and betting on the 25 lines available inside. There is a feature with free games and with wild reels in it, scatter symbols and wilds with multipliers.

Features of Mount Olympus

The features of the game are the ones you would expect for the most part. You have the scatter symbol, the wild, multipliers and free spins, and it should be enough to keep you busy for some time.

In the role of the wild we have the WILD Shield Logo. It’s not the kind of symbol to pay you prizes directly, but it does substitute for others whenever it shows up in the right position, so it can be helpful. It’s especially nice that it brings with it a 2x multiplier, which is applied whenever a win is awarded thanks to its contribution.

The Mount Olympus Logo is another important part of the slot, the only scatter symbol used inside. As the scatter, this symbol appears anywhere on the five reels, rewarding you with prizes of up to 50x the value of the bet, but also triggering the free spins. You need at least two Logos to get paid by it, but for the best prizes you need the maximum of five.

Free Games Feature

You get free spins as well from the Mount Olympus Logo, but you need 3 or more in order to trigger them. It’s a free spins feature that feels a bit special, using only 5 free spins but having a wild reels feature that helps out a lot.


Before each round of the free spins, you are taken to a screen with five snakes. You pick one of them and you find out next how many of the reels will be wild in the next round. As many as four wild reels can be used by the game in each spin. The randomly chosen reels are picked from the 2nd to 5th reel range.

Betting options and jackpots

The betting range is between $0.01 and $125. The line bet goes from $0.01 to $5, the maximum amount using up to 10 coins of $0.50. You are free to use as many of those coins as you want, with a denomination that is within the given range of $0.01 to $0.50. You also activate only as many lines as you can afford to bet on.

The top jackpot is only at 1,000x normally, but with the help of the wild it can double to 2,000x. That means up to $10,000 cash.

Design and symbols

The game has a certain atmosphere that feels just right for a slot created for Halloween, not for an Ancient Greek title. Still, it’s well designed, with a Medusa character that actually feels a bit scary. There are some other nicely done symbols in there, but many of them are playing cards that I’m not as happy about.


Symbols: Wild Shield (wild), Mount Olympus Logo (scatter, 50x bet), Medusa (1,000x), Eye (500x), Sword in Gold Coins (250x), Vial (125x), Ace (100x), King (100x), Queen (75x), Jack (75x), 10 (75x) and 9 (50x).

Is It Worth Playing?

It’s got a bid of a dark design, but it’s interesting enough to warrant at least a quick look.

Mount Olympus – The Revenge of Medusa can be found at any Microgaming casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
