In a Nutshell
The Merlin’s Millions video slot definitely deserves its name. Great graphics, colorful design, and a theme that’s intrigued young and old for centuriesall make for an entertaining mix.
The animations are great — old Merlin fidgetsÂ when he hasn’t got anything to do, and the owl in the picking round is one of the coolest slot features this reviewer’s ever seen.
A Closer Look
The Merlin’s Millions slot machine comes with an enchanted forest-type theme. Merlin stands on the left, ready to swing his staff, while his owl sits in the reels and guards the scatter symbol. Both are animated, which means that there’s always some movement, some small detail that makes them seem alive. The old wizard can’t stand still and actually plays around with a kind of pink fireball when nothing more interesting is going on.
Merlin himself is the wild, and he is stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4. He can replace any symbol except the owl and the orb. The orb is the first scatter symbol and can get you free spins (see below). The owl is the second scatter — get three or more, and you’ll enter a picking round.
Merlin’s Millions is one of the more sophisticated slots around. The neat graphics, the fancy sound effects and the flawless working really make this one something extraordinary. Be sure to have a look.
Free Spin Features
It’s the first scatter symbol that brings you the free spins bonus in the Merlin’s Millions slot. Get three or more orbs to appear in a spin, and you’ll get 5 free spins. On top of that, Merlin waves his staff and turns all symbols on the middle reels into wilds.
The second scatter symbol is the owl. Get three or more to show up, and the bird will take off, fly across the reels and turn all the remaining symbols into owls as well. Now you go on and take your pick to win money, with different prizes guarded by the birds. Whenever you hit one, you’ll get to see a nice little animated sequence when the owl takes off. You go on until you’re told to collect your winnings.
The Super Bet feature included in Merlin’s Millions lets you increase your wager by multiplying the wild x2 to x10. If you’re not sure what this is, have a look at the pay table. There’s also a gamble feature: choose the correct color and double your bet, or choose the correct suit and increase it x4.
