Medusa is a monster, a Gorgon, from Greek Mythology who had a repulsive female face and venomous snakes in place of hair. Looking directly into her eyes would turn you into stone. Playtech has taken this theme and created an arcade game that is sure to keep you busy. Medusa’s Gaze is a popular category of online casino games – spinning wheels. Four wheels of concentric coloured blocks spins around with the head of Medusa stick out the centre of the wheels. This game is a game of luck, but each spin features a different outcome, making it interesting and exciting and one of the popular online arcade games at Playtech casinos.

The wheels will spin and come to rest displaying 12 paylines (8 vertical rows and 4 horizontal rows). The aim of the game is to line up a minimum of three matching coloured blocks on any payline. There is also a wild block (the white block) which helps to create winning combinations. If there is a winning combination, Medusa glares at the blocks and turns them into stone and they slip down below the level of the wheel. There can be multiple winning combinations. New coloured blocks take their place creating a new wheel and the potential for new winning combinations. With each consecutive win, the multiplier value will be increased by 1x, offering higher payouts the more you win in one wheel spin.
