The game itself takes place in Merlin’s workshop as the cartoony Merlin watches on as you attempt to match three or more symbols in a fixed line. The symbols you will be working with are the number ten, J, K, Q and A for the low value wins and a spell written on parchment, a telescope, a spell book and a golden cup, providing those higher wins. Other symbols you should keep an eye out for are Merlin himself as he acts as a scatter and a golden cauldron which activates bonuses.
Play Merlin’S Magic Respins Bonus Features
‘Merlin’s Magic Respins’ really excels when it comes down to its amazing range of bonus features, the first of which we’ll look at is the ‘Wild Respins’ feature. For this to start Merlin will have to appear as a stacked wild on reels two, three and four, meaning in theory (as he is stacked) that it’s quite possible for him to cover all of the positions on those reels. When he does appear, as long as you have the ‘Superbet’ feature enabled, the wild reel will remain in place and you will receive between one and five respins, depending on the size of your ‘Superbet’.
So what even is the ‘Superbet’ feature I hear you ask? Well NextGen’s unique Superbet feature, also appeared in ‘Merlin’s Millions’ but is a little different from the original. Using this new pimped up version you can bet an extra amount of credit when you think you are about to achieve success (between 50 and 300 coins) and if you trigger the Wild Respins during this period as above, you will receive even more spins. There are a lovely seven free spins are available to you, if you can land three of the golden cauldron scatter symbols anywhere in reels two, three and four. The stacked wilds are also still active here and that may cause Merlin to arrive and randomly zap some symbols into wilds just for you.
Then finally, there is also the tantalizing gamble feature where after any win you can try to gamble with the amount you have won, even further by clicking the hearts/clubs ‘Gamble’ button situated temptingly below the reels. Now you must predict whether the next card drawn will be black or red in an attempt to double up your money. But be warned, if you’re wrong you will lose all of your winnings.
