If you ever played Merlin’s Magic by NextGen Gaming then you will be aware of how much of a fun slot adventure it was. The game took the player on a magical quest with the famous wizard Merlin with the aim of uncovering some big jackpots. The game saw considerable success and as a result, NextGen Gaming decided to develop a sequel and we have managed to get a hold of it and have a few spins. It is aptly named Merlin’s Magic Respins and it looks absolutely fantastic. There are some bonus rounds and a magical theme to enjoy and all the details are below.
The game aims to improve on the features that made the original such a hit and there are some really interesting features to this game. It is structured as you would expect with 5 reels and a grand total of 50 paylines so there are loads of ways to pick up some wins. If you are still unsure about the game of you haven’t played the original then fear not, as new players can play for free before having to gamble with real cash. You can then bet from just 50p which is great.
This is a stunning looking game with some absolutely fantastic graphics. We absolutely love the design with the background consisting of what seems to be one of the rooms in Merlin’s castle. Merlin proudly stands on the left-hand side of the game interface and he is draped in green robes and a pointy green wizard’s hat. On the reels you will find a number of items all relating to the game in some way with spell books, potions and magic scrolls all on offer for your enjoyment. It really is a spellbinding game and looks even better than the original!
In terms of game features, there are plenty to keep players happy. The bonus symbols are all pretty magical as well and Merlin himself is the wild so watch out for him as he can help you win big by forming line wins. Merlin can also activate the Wild Respins feature and can stack on reels 2, 3 or 4 and can be affected by the Superbet feature.
The Superbet feature is an interesting one and this is a feature that is offered on a lot of NextGen’s slots. Essentially, the feature diversifies the betting options and allows players to bet between 50-300 coins and also if you trigger the respins feature then you will receive additional respins which is really nice and it can really help you win big.
Players can also activate the gamble feature after any win and this is a risky feature so take care when using it. Just hit the gamble button after any win and you can attempt to double your money by guessing whether the playing card displayed with be red or black. If you are wrong you will lose your win but if you are right you will double your money so bear this in mind.
