If you like video slots that come with a whiff of magic and mystery, then we’ve got 2 brand new releases based on 1 of history’s most famous sorcerers, the mighty Merlin.
Merlin’s Money Burst – NextGen Gaming
Merlin’s Money Burst is a 5 reel, 60 payline video slot from NextGen Gaming. The set up here is unusual in that the reels are in a 2x2x4x4x4 configuration. You’ll see the usual magical paraphernalia spinning around the reels including hour glasses, bottles of potion and books of spells. Merlin himself is the wild, offering payouts of up to 83.33 times your bet per payline.
NextGen Gaming has packed plenty of extras into Merlin’s Money Burst. Fill reels 1 and 2 with the same symbol to trigger Merlin’s Held Re-Spins feature – those symbols are held and you’ll receive 5 re-spins to try and create an even better combination. Merlin can add extra wilds here too. There’s also Merlin’s Free Games feature which awards free spins with Merlin transforming symbols into wilds.
Best of all though is the Merlin’s Wild Spins feature. Land 4 matching symbols on reels 1 and 2 and scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4 to activate these. The symbols on reels 1 and 2 turn wild throughout the 10 free spins that follow. If Merlin adds more wilds here, the results can be spectacular.
You’ll also have the chance to up your stakes and activate the SuperBet feature. This attached multipliers of up to 10x to your wild wins. These 10x multiplier wilds can really boost your wins in the features described above. If you enjoyed the original Merlin’s Millions video slot, then you should find Merlin’s Magic Burst to your liking – this version offers wins of 37,500 times your bet on each spin!
Rise of Merlin – Play ‘N Go
The second new release, Rise of Merlin, is a super volatile 5 reel, 10 payline video slot from Play ’N Go. The setting in this simple game is a chamber within Camelot castle. Owls and dragons appear alongside Merlin who is the game’s most rewarding symbol, offering 500 times your bet if you land 5 on a payline.
Also offering awards of up to 500 times your bet per payline is the crystal ball which is both the wild and scatter. Land 3 or more of these to trigger the Free Spins feature which awards 8 free spins. Before the bonus spins start, 1 symbol is randomly selected. Whenever this hits, it expands to fill the whole reel.
Re-triggers are possible here too – you can add unlimited free spins with up to 9 symbols becoming special expanding symbols! Rise of Merlin is a simple take on the sorcery theme. It’s as volatile as the magician’s most explosive potions too with wins of 5,000 times your bet per spin/free spin. Your bankroll could disappear in the blink of an eye. Land a high value expanding symbol though and look out. You can quickly conjure up a magic hatful of coins.
