NextGen Gaming has made quite a habit out of producing Merlin-themed slots. The casino software providers already have Merlin’s Millions and Merlin’s Magic Respins under their belt. Now, their Arthurian wizard franchise is set to gain a new entry.
Debuting at NextGen casinos this month is Merlin’s Money Burst. This slot will continue the fine work and exciting gameplay laid down by its predecessors, although this is not a progressive jackpot. Players who like their free spins are surely going to find this new slot’s features mightily impressive, to say the least.
The Latest Merlin Slot to Launch
Merlin’s Money Burst is played over 5 reels and 60 paylines. Despite not being able to alter those lines, players will still be able to wager anything from 30p upwards on this release. You are, in a very real sense, getting a two-for-one-deal on paylines. However, players will note that the non-progressive prize has been dropped a touch because of that.
Merlin himself appears as a wild symbol, and he can replace all other icons in the game, save for scatter symbols. Those scatters appear as gems and three are required to activate a free spin round. That feature offers 10 games, during which Merlin can add up to 9 wild symbols at random on each spin.
How Is This one Different from the Rest?
Merlin’s Money Burst also comes with a few other features. Whenever a player lands a four of the same symbols on the first and second reels (through stacked icons), those symbols will be held with the remaining reels spin. At the same time, Merlin may once again decide to dish out random wilds to aid you in bagging a prize.
The slot also features a Merlin’s Wild Spins bonus. Triggered when matching icons appear on the first two reels (as before) with three scatter icons on the other three reels. Players can win between 10 and 20 spins, during which the first two reels will become wild. Once again Merlin can add extra wilds (this time up to 12) onto the reels at random.
Where to Find Merlin’s Money Burst This July
Merlin’s Money Burst debuted at casinos this month. It has already proven to be a crowd-pleaser. Any player eager to give the game should be able to find it at all top sites which offer NextGen Gaming slots to their players.
