One of the best-looking video slots that have ever come out of NextGen Gaming’s workshop, Merlin’s Millions Superbet slot stays true to the magical postulates of wizardry and spell casting.
The Superbet version of the game comes with a thrilling edition of the NextGen’s trademark Superbet feature, a really unique slot solution that makes the game more lucrative and more exciting to play.
King Arthur’s famous advisor, the long-bearded mage Merlin, is the main character in the game, and he’ll be your guide through a colourful magical adventure that will hopefully end in you battling with a full sack of money instead of some ugly evil creature.
As you start the Merlin’s Millions Superbet slot game, you’ll immediately enter the legendary fantasy world where Merlin can demonstrate all his powers and skills. He will stand on the left of the reels and observe your lessons in potions, spell books and be communicating with animals and monitor your progress.
The cheeky magician is animated and you’ll see him firing up spells every now and then. Behind him, there is an enchanted forest, and below are the controls: Autoplay, Spin, Max Bet and so on.
The reel set benefits from 5 columns and 4 rows of symbols, so you could say NextGen went for a more unusual setup than what most games have. Merlin’s Millions Superbet has 50 fixed paying lines.
Apart from the playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, there are three base game symbols that are theme-related: a purple potion, a book of spells and Merlin’s wand that looks like a sceptre with a red gemstone on top.
There are several special symbols, though. Watch out for the blue orb Scatter, the owl Bonus symbol and Merlin himself as the Wild.
The bonus features really make Merlin’s Millions Superbet stand out from the crowd.
First, we have the Free Spins bonus. To trigger the free spins round, the player needs to land three of the blue orb symbols on the middle reels – the reward is 5 free spins. During free play, Merlin will fire up spells out of his wand and turn one of the reels Wild, which considerably improves the winning potential of this bonus.
The other one is the Owl Bonus feature, which gets triggered when owl symbols land on reels 1, 3 and 5 in a single spin. This will initiate a mini-game where all positions will turn into owls and the player will pick symbols to reveal cash prizes until he/she reaches ’Collect’.
The Superbet feature is a special treat; you’ll notice the slider on the right of the reel grid. The way Superbet works is that you need to up your bets in order to apply Superbet multipliers to the Wilds that appear when Merlin zaps the reels. You can go as high as a 10x multiplier but bear in mind that your bets will be the highest at that point and that you’ll be playing across all 50 pay lines. With Merlin’s help, you can really go a long way with this one!
