The virtual game table is a round affair with Medusa’s head poking out the middle – yes, that’s right and it’s about as bizarre as you’d expect. The wheel stops when the Gorgon looks at it, with simple color patterns making up the “symbols” on the “reels.”
The “paylines” themselves are comprised of the eight vertical rows emanating from Medusa’s center circle and the four horizontal rows running across the gameboard; three matching adjacent symbol on these lines makes a win.
Any winning symbols are turned into virtual stone, with that cascading feature kicking in thereafter, i.e. the stoned symbols will disappear, the remaining symbols slide downward, new colors fill in the blanks, and the winning process (hopefully) repeats. With each consecutive cascading win, the bonus multiplier on wins increases by 1x.
Medusa’s Gaze doesn’t allow betting per payline per se, instead offering a crazy betting range of 20¢ to $500 per turn.
