If you’d like to learn what the 50 lines are, this information can be found within the settings and info area. Game symbols are equally magical, and consist of the typical 9, 10, J, Q and K. There are also the orb scatter and owl bonus symbols in play, bottles of potion, a spell book and the wild symbol, with Merlin on.
How to play
Playing merlins millions is fairly straight forward, first of all you need to establish your betting stake, and if you will be playing the super bet or not. The bet per line is set at a minimum of 1p, so the minimum stake is 50p in any single game. If you wish to increase your bet per line, and total bet, you can do so on the lower left corner, using the up and down arrows. Once you have determined your total stake per spin, the play button on the lower right spins the reels.
In order to win, you simply need to match a minimum of three of the same symbol on any of the 50 lines. Naturally, as you would expect for most slot games, different symbols have varying win amounts. To find out what symbols yield what prizes, simply visit the information area via the settings symbol on the top right.
A key feature of Merlins Millions, is its Superbet feature, an optional wager which could multiply your win amounts. On the right side, you will see the superbet button, and you can choose 2x, 4x, 6x, 8x or 10x.
For 2x, this involves you betting an extra 50x your bet per line. For the 4x, an extra 100x bet per line, 6x an extra 200x bet per line. Then for the 8x it’s an extra 250x the bet per line and for 10x it’s an additional 300x bet per line. How it works is, if the Merlin wild symbol appears when the multiplier is enabled, the substitution wins are multiplied by whatever figure you chose.
During game play if three owl scatter symbols appear, this will activate the owl bonus feature. Once this bonus is activated, select from the owls upon the screen, and win the prizes shown. This is repeated until you reveal the “collect” owl. The prizes are then multiplied by the triggering bet, however superbet is not included in this. Good news is, the owl bonus feature can also be re-activated during the free games feature, which we will cover below.
Once three orbs appear on the reels, this will activate five free spins. During these free games, Merlin stands and looks upon the reels. He will turn symbols on the reels wild, to increase chances of landing a win. The good news is this featured can actually be re-triggered during free game play.
Magic Merlin himself will often appear upon reels 2, 3 and 4 only, and this is basically the games wild symbol. Merlin substitutes himself for other symbols, giving an increased probability of a win. It’s regrettable, but the wild symbols doesn’t substitute for the owl or orb symbols, sadly.
