The free online Merlin’s Magic slot machine is a video game developed by NextGen Gaming. It has 5 reels with 4 rows and 50 paying lines which cannot be adjusted. Merlin’s Magic slot machine game’s graphic design has been inspired by the wizard called Merlin from the legend of King Arthur, and magical elements and potions. This machine has vivid graphic effects to keep the player’s attention while playing, and an interesting background music that goes with them. This slot is similar to Joker Jester.
Merlin’s Magic slot game has 11 symbols altogether, whose values, along with the rules of the game, can be seen in the left bottom corner of the screen by clicking the Info button. They can be divided into following groups:
- Low Win Icons – there are 5 of these regular icons, and they are depicted with letters (J, Q, K, A), and number 10. They bring from 5 to 100 credits depending on which and how many are collected.
- High Win Icons – 4 regular icons which are represented with a telescope, a magic scroll, a spells book, and a goblet. They carry different values which start from 20 coins, and go as high as 500 coins which are obtainable if 5 goblets appear on the reels in a single spin.
- The Wild – has the protagonist of this game, Merlin himself, as a symbol. Its function is to substitute all symbols except for the Scatter in order to improve chances of winning. The Wild appears only on reels 2, 3, and 4, and if a full stack of them appears on a reel, the Wild Re-spins Feature is triggered.
- The Scatter – is depicted with a magic cauldron and it appears on reels 2, 3, and 4 only. When one collects 3 of them in a round, the Free Games Feature is triggered.
- Gamble Option – whenever some winnings are earned, the player can risk it all in order to double or quadruple everything he has won in the previous round by clicking the Gamble button. An unrevealed card will appear, and the player is to correctly guess the color of the card to double the win, or the sign of the card to quadruple the win. If the guess is incorrect everything the one has gambled will be lost.
- Free Games Feature – starts when 3 Scatters are collected and rewards 7 free spins. This bonus can be retriggered.
- Wild Re-Spins – this bonus is unlocked during the SuperBet playing way, and during this feature, any new stack of Wilds awards additional re-spins. The number of re-rolls awarded depends on the SuperBet amount.
Playing & Wagering at Merlin’s Magic Slot
Merlin’s Magic kept the traditional playing ways, the automatic (by clicking the Autoplay button) and the manual (by clicking the Spin button). Autoplay can be set by preference, but with the maximum of 100 rounds.
Wagering is not as flexible as it could be since the number of winning lines cannot be modified, but the bet per line can be set from 0,02 up to 4 coins, which makes the max total bet 1,400 credits! This slot game allows its players to choose the new SuperBet option which can be set to 5 different levels. The higher the level is picked, the higher will the wins be, and more Wild Re-spins will appear. This playing option costs from 50 to 300 coins, depending on the level chosen.
