Playing Merlin’s Millions
NextGen Gaming’s Merlin’s Millions is a five reel and fifty pay line slots game based on the legend of Merlin, accomplice to King Arthur of England. The game features a colourful design with state-of-the-art graphics and engaging sound effects, and it keeps players entertained with wilds, scatters, and a SuperBet feature. The symbols used fall under the magical Merlin theme, and these include a magical staff, magical potions, Merlin himself, a spell book, owls, as well as the standard poker value playing cards.
The SuperBet Feature
The SuperBet feature in Merlin’s Millions allows players to add an extra bet to each spin by simply enabling the SuperBet feature located on the right of the control panel. The SuperBet feature is made up of five different levels, each of which will require a slightly higher coin bet to be placed. In return, however, players will be given a bonus multiplier that will be applied to all winnings. The value of the multiplier applied will depend on which SuperBet level players decide to activate. Multipliers will range from two times to ten times the winnings.
The Merlin Wild Symbol
The wild symbol in the Merlin’s Millions video slots game is represented by Merlin himself. The Merlin wild symbol can substitute any of the other symbols, except for the magical orbs and the owls, which represent the scatter and bonus symbols. In substituting other symbols, the Merlin wild symbol can help players complete winning pay lines, make up the best possible winning combinations, and receive the highest possible payouts. The Merlin wild symbol can only appear on the second, third, and fourth reels. The wild symbol may appear as a stacked wild on these reels.
The Magical Orbs Scatter Symbol
The scatter symbol in the Merlin’s Millions video slots game is represented by the magical orbs icon. Landing at least three of these magical orb scatters will trigger the free spins feature, where players can receive up to five free spins. Once this feature has been activated, one of the reels may be turned wild, increasing the chance of landing winning combinations. In addition, the free spins feature can be re-triggered if players again land three or more scatter symbols, even within the actual free spins round. This will grant players an extra five free spins.
The Owl Bonus Round
If players land three or more owl symbols in the Merlin’s Millions video slots game, this will trigger the game’s owl bonus round. Once this bonus feature has been activated, all of the symbols on the reels will be transformed into magical owls. Players will then have to click on the owls as part of this pick’em feature to reveal hidden prizes. Players generally stand the chance of revealing about five prizes but may have the chance of revealing all twenty prizes. The bonus round will come to an end when the word ‘collect’ appears on the screen, and all winnings will be added to the player’s total.
How to Play Merlin’s Millions
The fifty pay lines are fixed, so players need only select their coin denomination and total bet per line before continuing to spin the reels, which may be done manually or via the auto play feature.
