MAGIC MERLIN MEGAWAYS™ SLOT
Storm is a UK-based gaming company that dominates the land-based slots market. To increase their online visibility, they have joined the vast list of game developers that have licensed the Big Time Gaming Megaways slot engine.
Magic Merlin, their debut Megaways release, is a fairly ordinary fare with its mystical tones referencing King Arthur’s tale. Cascading winnings feature that continues throughout the free spins round and mixes with multipliers to generate some really frantic win streaks.
Recognize it? Sure, it does. Fortunately, the visuals and animations are good enough to make you forget you’re playing a Megaways slot!
Symbols and Pay Tables
As we all know, Bonanza-style Megaways™ have six reels, each with two to seven rows. There are 117,649 ways to win when all six reels have seven symbols. The reels’ lower value symbols are the 10 to Ace, while the higher value symbols include scrolls, wands, potions, and magical orbs. Merlin pays 50x for six on a payline.
The familiar cascading winnings technique is used here — winning symbols are eliminated and replaced after each winning spin. If further victories are made, the procedure is repeated until no more wins are made.
Look for the wild symbol, which may replace all other symbols except the Spell Book scatter, which triggers the free spins round.
Magic Merlin Megaways™ Features
Magic Merlin, like Bonanza and other Megaways™ slots, features a Mystery Symbol (in this case the card). When it lands, each occurrence of the card becomes one of the game’s primary symbols, increasing the odds of winning.
Four or more Spell Book scatters trigger the free spins round.
Each additional scatter over the standard level of four earns you 5 more free spins. Each cascading victory from the free spins increases your win multiplier by 1. It doesn’t reset at the conclusion of each cascade, so it may become quite high, allowing for massive victories. Keep an eye out for more scatters falling in the 4×1 reel set above the main one to enhance your free spins cache.
Magic Merlin is a basic MegawaysTM slot, with a similar engine to Big Time Gaming’s Bonanza, which started it all. Merlin boasts outstanding visuals and is a must play for everyone who has even a passing interest in this slots sensation.
