We love a bit of magic on the reels and one of the most iconic slot games in the genre simply has to be Merlin’s Millions from NextGen. As with the likes of Medusa and Foxin’ Wins, there is every chance that you will have heard of the game without necessarily having heard of the developer, as the games generally speak for themselves through quality action and gameplay. It certainly works in Merlin’s Millions’ favour that it is one of the best-looking games in the NextGen portfolio, and there is plenty to get excited about throughout the game too with all sorts of different features and bonuses to keep the action going.
What to Expect
For starters, Merlin’s Millions is a decently large game with fifty lines of action. These games from NextGen almost always require an extended board and that is the case here, with four rows of action ensuring that there are twenty symbols in view at all times. Merlin himself helps things along not only by standing aside the reels keeping an eye on the action, but also by serving as a wild card that can land in stacks on reels two, three and four.
The minor feature on Merlin’s Millions is the pick a win bonus and players will be required to land three owls on the board in order to trigger it. Rather than picking a triggering symbol as on Medusa, players will instead be presented with twenty owls to choose from. They can then keep on picking and winning until they find the ‘collect’ icon, at which point the round is over.
The main feature is a free spins bonus round and you will need three orb symbols on the board at the same time in order to win them. Five free spins are awarded and Merlin will go from being a bystander to being an active participant, magically turning symbols into additional wilds. Five spins are not much, but you can win more within the round and, if Merlin is on form, you will be able to pick up plenty of cash even with just the original five.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
Merlin’s Millions looks good and is plenty of fun to play too. In terms of the big three of NextGen, comprising this game, Medusa and Foxin’ Wins, we would have to place this one in third position, but that certainly is not a bad result! It is still an immensely fun game that could perhaps benefit from more free spins. Still, it is a mobile favourite of ours and we think that our readers will love it too.
