Android online slots have taken the mobile gaming scene by storm. In the past casinos used apps but trying to maintain multiple casino apps for Windows, Android, and iOS took time, money, and resources. In came Flash, which allowed players to play online slots via their web browser, but even then, Flash required many updates and took up hours of online casino support teams’ time.
Below we review two of the best Android video slots online today from the popular Aussie video slots software provider NextGen Gaming.
243-ways-to-win finds its way to the NextGen gaming suite with the sorcerous Medusa II daring to cast a fresh look with the well-known ‘no pay-line’ concept over 5 reels of supernatural action. The sequel to Medusa is most definitely going to be a long-term hit with NextGen fans. 3D graphics and sublime animation characterise NextGen’s brilliance.
And to make sure this slot leaves a lasting mark and keeps you coming back, a flurry of features are available. Get to grips with Stacked Wilds, Locked Reels, Turned to Stone Stacked Wilds, Scatters, Multipliers, Free Spins and a Gamble feature.
Medusa II Gameplay
Magical powers and dark witchcraft keep soldiers at bay and reels turning into wilds in a 3D animated world starring Medusa in her second appearance.
She wickedly sees aside attacking soldiers attacking the reels using a stony gaze that turns the warrior into stone, leaving you with reels full of wild symbols. The wilds are all stacked 3 high in Medusa II and combine with a locking reels feature that locks up reels and combinations randomly during the game, which pretty much guarantees your spin will come out spitting dollar signs.
Locked reels remain permanently locked during the free spins round where 10 free spins will dish out 3, 4 and 5 symbol combination wins as the free spins with locked reels progressively build up symbols and combine with wilds.
Look out for the Medusa wild symbol as she stacks up 3 high on the reels substituting as any other symbol in the game helping to complete more combination wins.
Turned to Stone Stacked Wilds
3D animation is a feature of Medusa II and this random feature brings out the best of them. An armoured soldier rides across the reels in attack mode. Medusa’s dark stare intercepts the soldier’s charge, turning him to stone and turning the reels into all wild symbols.
At any stage in the game the reels can lock up in 2, 3, 4 or 5 with symbols clustering together to bring you combination wins with 4 and 5 symbol payouts.
If you land 3 to 5 Medusa II scatter logos anywhere in sight on the reels, you win a x50, x125 or x250 multiplier of your spin bet.
Win free spins by landing 3 or more scatters. 10 free spins with reels permanently locked, building up blocks of combinations will see you walk away from this feature loaded with cash. With locking reels for 10 spins, 4 and 5 symbols combinations are common occurrences!
Merlin’s Magic Re-spins
5 reels designed with 4 positions on each and 50 Pay lines brings the second version of Merlin’s slots from NextGen. This is the sequel to the much-loved Merlin’s Millions released in 2012.
Now, Merlin’s Magic Respins offers more features via scatters, stacked wilds, SuperBet Respins and a free spins session. This epic fantasy adventure is also available via both desktop and mobile play from any online casino that connects to Australian developer’s NYX OGS platform.
