Yggdrasil Gaming Unveil New Medusa Fortune & Glory Slot
Yggdrasil Gaming has proudly released a hot new slot called Medusa Fortune & Glory. The brand-new reel-spinning game is part of its expanding YG Masters programme and was developed by Malta-based start-up DreamTech Gaming.
Featuring 6 reels and 4 rows, DreamTech promises that the new online slot delivers action-packed gameplay with every spin.
The YG Masters Programme
Yggdrasil Gaming’s YG Masters programme became part of its Publishing division earlier in 2020, when the Publishing division itself was formally launched. Under the auspices of this department, the YG Masters programme has undergone extensive expansion at an accelerated rate.
Similar to Microgaming’s mentorship programme, YG Masters provides smaller, independent developers with Yggdrasil’s full range of promotional tools and technological resources, as well as the larger company’s global distribution network.
In this win-win situation, start-ups get to roll out more games, while Yggdrasil Gaming retains and grows its customer base by attaching its name to fresh, innovative content. Medusa Fortune & Glory is DreamTech Gaming’s second YG Masters release, following the hugely popular Ice and Fire.
As part of the YG Masters expansion, Yggdrasil has signed deals with several other emerging brands. The corporation has entered partnerships with Reflex Gaming, True Lab and Skyrocket Entertainment, among others, and industry insiders are said to be eagerly anticipating their new releases.
A Wild Trip to Ancient Greece
Greek mythology is a common theme in online slots and in Medusa Fortune & Glory, DreamTech Gaming has executed it especially well. The Ways to Win pay structure offers 4,096 winning possibilities on every spin as well as various special features to boost payouts even more.
DreamTech CEO Thomas Lu said his company was “thrilled” to be releasing their second title in collaboration with Yggdrasil Gaming and described the mythological setting as “engaging”. The majesty of the old legends is balanced by cartoon-style graphics to create some very attractive visuals.
The reels are framed in stone columns, and the icons take the theme even further. The lower-value playing card symbols look as if they are chiselled from granite blocks, and the higher-value icons include a winged warthog, Pegasus the flying horse and the Minotaur.
The multi-headed water monster from Greek legends, Hydra, also makes an appearance in all its serpentine glory, and Medusa herself serves as the game’s Wild Symbol. The Gorgon can stand in for any regular icon and can spread to other reel positions in the Spreading Wilds feature.
A Choice of Fortune or Glory
The age-old question of whether to choose fame or fortune is also presented in this online slot in the form of its bonus games. When 3 or more Bonus symbols appear in any positions at the same time, players are asked to choose between the Fortune or Glory side games.
In the Fortune feature players are presented with 6 treasure chests and must choose 1 to reveal how many extra games they’ll get and 1 to determine the multiplier that will be applied to all wins in the free spins.
The Glory feature works in the same way, except the second chest determines which symbols will be transformed into Wilds during the extra games. The interactive special features show off the Medusa Fortune & Glory’s slick design and innovation perfectly.
DreamTech Gaming is understandably pleased with the release, and they’re not alone. Speaking for Yggdrasil Gaming, Head of Partner Strategy & Sourcing Stuart McCarthy also expressed his satisfaction and called the slot a “fantastic addition” to the growing YG Masters portfolio.
The main purpose of YG Masters, McCarthy continues, is to align Yggdrasil Gaming with “inventive studios” to create new and exciting content. He concluded that Medusa Fortune & Glory does just that. The game has just gone live, so players can try it themselves on desktop or mobile device and see if they agree.
