Merlin’s Millions Slots

Merlin's-MillionsMerlin’s Millions tries to use one of the most beloved characters from King Arthur’s story to its advantage, but that’s not the only thing to watch out for in this game from NextGen Gaming. There are also a lot of paylines, which can be a good reason to try it out, as is the SuperBet option which you can work with to make the game more profitable.

50 win lines are spread across the 5 reels of Merlin’s Millions. You get a chance to experience some very interesting features, especially the SuperBet with its high multipliers, the wilds, free spins, scatters and bonus games. While the top payouts will offer you 10,000 coins, the value will only be $2,000 for them.

Features of Merlin’s Millions

The SuperBet option is a big part of the feature list, allowing you to get bigger multipliers for the stacked wilds. Other symbols include the scatter icon, the free spins and bonus games.


We have Merlin first, the symbol which is used as the stacked wild. It is going to be present on the reels 2, 3 and 4. From there, it might not be capable of giving prizes directly, but it will be useful by being a substitute for other symbols, as long as they’re not scatters. Wilds can also apply multipliers, though the SuperBet needs to be active for that to happen.

Speaking of the SuperBet, this option will cost you extra, but will also increase the multiplier of the wild Merlin, to 2x, 4x, 6x or 10x. The more you bet extra, the bigger the potential prizes won when the wild gets involved.

Free Games Feature

You have an Orb symbol on the middle three reels, and it is a scatter which can trigger the free spins of Merlin’s Millions. Three of these scattered Orb icons will pay you an amount worth double the round’s wager, and then they will trigger the free spins.


You are given 5 free spins here, with Merlin appearing at the start and turning multiple symbols into wilds. You might even get entire stacks of four wilds on some of the reels.

Owl Bonus Feature

The only other scatter in this game is the one with the Owl on it. Appearing on reels 1, 3 and 5, it is needed on all three in order for the bonus game to start. You are asked to choose from the owls shown on the screen, and you will be rewarded with prizes for your picks. You stop getting picks when you hit the Collect message.


Betting options and jackpots

Despite the high number of lines, up to 50 being used, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to trigger them. The line bet only goes up to $0.20, so $10 is enough to cover 50 lines. However, should you choose to activate the SuperBet, you can wager up to $60 extra, meaning that the total could reach $70.

You can get 1,000 coins from regular combinations, or up to 10,000 coins when the wild gets involved with its highest multiplier. The cash value would be $200 for the former, or $2,000 for the latter.

Design and symbols

There is a rather weird looking 3D design in Merlin’s Millions, with a bit of a scary element thrown in as well, as you will notice yourself when you look at all the various eyeballs which are used to give the poker cards life, or which are simply sitting in jars. There is a forest behind the reels, there are magic crystals shown on the right side, and overall the feel is just as much about magic as is about the dark side of it.


Symbols: Merlin (wild), Orb (2x the bet, scatter), Owl (scatter), Spell Book (1,000 coins), Wizard Staff (300 coins), Eyeball Potion (200 coins), Ace (200 coins), King (100 coins), Queen (100 coins), Jack (75 coins), 10 (75 coins) and 9 (50 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

I’d recommend this game to you, even though its graphics are not that great, and the wagers can get very expensive. The SuperBet option can bring huge multipliers for the wins that the wilds contribute to, and I think it makes up for some of its weaker points.

The Merlin’s Millions slot machine is offered through the NextGen platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
