Gaze into the Orb
Merlin’s Millions has a few sweet play features added to keep you spinning. The wild symbols, which are portraits of the eponymous wizard himself, will show up on the middle three reels (usually in bulk). These wilds count as any symbol other than the owls and orbs, meaning that they can help you complete elusive paylines.
The aforementioned orbs also show up on the middle three reels, and when you hit three of them, Merlin will reward you with 5 free spins. During these spins, he will randomly turn some of the symbols into wilds, further increasing your winnings during the free rounds. This feature is the most rewarding when used in unison with the superbet feature. If you hit three orbs during the free spins, you’ll retrigger the feature.
The owl bonus is the most elusive one in the game, so much so that we’ve never encountered it. The owl symbol will appear on the first, third and fifth reel, and if you get one on all three, every single symbol on the screen will turn into an owl. Clicking these owls will reveal rewards under them, but you obviously won’t be able to bag all of them.
Finally, what seems to be the most interesting feature is superbet. Activating this will increase you bet somewhat, however it also adds a certain multiplier to the wilds. With five tiers ranging from x2 to x10, when this is active, any completed payline that goes through a Merlin wild will have its respective winnings multiplied by the tier, as many times as many wilds it passes through. You can imagine how much of a game changer this becomes when used with the free spins.
This once again depends on how much you’re willing to bet. Going low won’t provide you with too much excitement, as the only thing you will see will be your budget ebbing away. However, if you’re willing to risk more, you’ll end up with big winnings coming your way constantly.
Merlin’s Millions is a really solid slots game, and has much to offer players willing to bet high. The superbet feature coupled with the free spins make this a great way to walk away with several thousand, as long as you’re willing to risk one thousand or so.
