Golden Gorgon Slot (Yggdrasil)

Golden Gorgon Slot (Yggdrasil)Once again, Ancient Greek mythology has been used as a source of inspiration, and this is what Yggdrasil has used to give this slot the perfect storyline.

Here, Medusa is back, and it appears that both she and the Perseus (her killer) are present on the slot’s reels.

Medusa is the better known of the three Gorgon sisters who shared the power to turn men into stone. Euryale and Stheno were the names of the other two. Yggdrasil Gaming is the company that created Golden Gorgon, and I will share my review of this slot that goes by the name Golden Gorgon:

Game Set-Up

Golden Gorgon has 5x3 reels and 25 active pay lines. The Golden Gaze respins, plus column multipliers will be the main features, and I’m a little disappointed with this slot’s lack of features.

Betting and Prizes

Since the slot offers 25 lines, it means that you can use 25 coins on each spin. I was able to start with as little as $0.25 on each spin, and after I got familiar with the slot, I went for the higher wagers.

The maximum that you can use per spin on this game is $400, and the slot offers medium to high volatility. The RTP is not so bad, and at 96%, it is within the average offered by a majority of modern titles.

Golden Gorgon Features

A long list of special features isn't included in this slot machine. There is only a respin mechanic and multipliers used in this game.

Despite the reduced symbol count (only 7), forming winning combinations will be easier than you might think.

Let me start with the Golden Gaze mechanic. These powers of Medusa, which turned people into stone when they looked at her, were the inspiration for this design.

The Golden Gaze activates whenever a winning combination is formed, making the winning positions sticky. In order to increase your chances of winning, you must respin the remaining positions, and this is what I did to get more symbols for the existing combos.

As a second major feature, the Column Multiplier is a must-have. Matching symbols must cover two or more full reels in this game. One thing that I noticed is the fact that the slot heavily relies on respins to bring you the necessary symbols.

2x to 5x is the multiplier that you get for winning combinations. However, this also depends on the number of columns filled with matching symbols.

Theme and Design

Medusa appears to be the slot's inspiration. Perseus, the Greek hero who killed her, is seen as one of the top symbols. However, Medusa does not appear on any of the reels.

Golden Gorgon uses several symbols that include Perseus, a sword, a shield, and four royal-style symbols that depict Greek letters carved into stone (Alfa, Psi, Sigma, Omega).


Many players may be attracted to Golden Gorgon because of its respinning feature. Although the game is relatively straightforward, it is heavily dependent on just one gaming mechanic, and its top rewards are average. However, it is still a slot worth trying, and I can recommend it to all levels of players.
