If you’re a fan of reptiles and you enjoy playing online casino games, then you’ll be thrilled to know that February 1st is National Serpent Day. It’s an opportunity to celebrate a beautiful species that so many people admire and work hard to protect. It’s also a time to reflect on our fears, mindsets, and the ways we endanger or come into conflict with these fascinating creatures.
Let’s find out more about the day and ways you can celebrate National Serpent Day with some of our reptile-themed online slot machines.
National Serpent Day
National Serpent Day is designed to raise awareness about serpents and reptiles in general. While these creatures have featured prominently in so many stories and legends around the world, they are often seen in a negative light, even symbolizing evil in some cultures and religions. In others, they have been revered and associated with fertility and medicine. In order to sort out the facts from the fables, National Serpent Day is an opportunity to learn about the many species of snakes and reptiles, get involved in attempts to improve their welfare and advocate for the humane treatment of these intriguing creatures.

If you’re brave enough to enter the labyrinth, you might be lucky enough to find its treasures. Just never look into the snake woman’s eyes!
Temple of Medusa by Microgaming, in collaboration with All41 Studios, is a 5-reel, 25 payline slot machine that gives you a chance to fill the 15 positions with Medusa’s victims, scatters and spreading wilds to win up to 5,000x your bet.
