The Merlin’s Revenge Megaways slot is pretty standard for a game using this mechanic as it has 6 reels and up to 117,649 ways to win. Each reel will display a minimum of 2 and maximum of 7 symbols.

The more symbols on each reel, the more Megaways or ways to win. To get the full allocation of ways to win, you need 7 symbols on each of the reels. Land a win by seeing 3 or more matching symbols on successive reels beginning from reel 1. The only exception is Merlin whereby only 2 are required to land.

Bet levels range from 20p to £200 per spin with the max bet being particularly high. There’s a Casino Chip icon to the side of the reels which, when selected, will allows to click on the plus and minus buttons to adjust to your budget. For non-UK players, you will find Auto Spins and Turbo Mode functions.

The Merlin’s Revenge Megaways RTP is 96% which is exactly the slots average. The volatility is in the medium to high category though with the bigger wins reserved for the free spins.

The hit frequency rate is 29.9% which awards a win, on average, every 3.34 spins. In terms of payouts, the maximum win per spin is 28,988 x your total stake. This is nearly double that of the game’s predecessor.

Part of the Twisted Tales series and with an Arthurian legend theme, the Merlin’s Revenue Megaways slot is the follow-up to Morgana Megaways. Set in a chilling forest outside Camelot, you’ll see the legendary sword, Excalibur, in the stone that belongs to King Arthur. The design as always is superb from iSoftBet.

With high definition graphics, the soundtrack is triumphant and uplifting. It’s so good it feels like it’s been plucked from a TV series. Symbols include low value A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royals. Then you’ll see a blue orb, green gemstone and purple swirl as well as Merlin. Merlin is the best paying symbol with 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 in combination awarding 0.5, 1, 2, 5 or 10 x your total stake.

There’s a W wild symbol that appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 only. As you’d expect, it substitutes for all symbols except bonus or mystery symbols. The bonus scatter is represented by the Excalibur sword and the orb is the mystery symbol.

Merlin’s Revenge Megaways Mobile

merlins-revenge-megaways-mobile-slot

The story behind Merlin’s Revenge Megaways may be set in the late 5th and early 6th centuries but the technology used by iSoftBet is cutting edge. Using HTML5 technology, you can enjoy this slice of Arthurian legend on desktop, mobile and tablet devices. Being a Megaways slot, I always recommend a laptop or PC as the screen is much better and provides a better visual experience. If you’re a mobile slots player, iOS, Android and Windows operating systems are supported.

Merlin’s Revenge Megaways Bonus Features

The Merlin’s Revenge Megaways slot benefits from 6 bonus features. There are cascading wins, 2 random extras and mystery symbols. It’s all about the free spins where you collect symbols. These will reward you with extra free spins and a minimum number of Megaways/ways to win for future free spins.

Cascading Wins feature

When you get a win on the reels, the Cascading Wins feature comes into play. The winning symbols are removed with new symbols replacing them. This gives you the chance to get another win. The cascades continue as long as new wins are created. For your reference, this feature is present of most Megaways slots.

Random features

Merlin’s Revenge Megaways has a couple of randomly triggered bonus features in the base game. Here’s what they entail:

Merlin’s Magic feature A losing spin becomes a winning one or you play the free spins
Max Megaways feature You’ll play with the maximum Megaways (117,649 ways to win)

Mystery Symbols feature

Look out for the orb Mystery symbol. When it appears, the Mystery Symbols feature will be activated. All mystery symbols transform into the same randomly chosen symbol. This feature can apply during a base game spin or during the Free Spins feature.

Free Spins feature

merlins-revenge-megaways-slot-free-spins-feature

The Free Spins feature is triggered when 3 or more Excalibur sword bonus scatters appear anywhere in view. 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters will award 8, 10, 14 or 20 free spins respectively.

Before you begin, you can gamble the number of free spins by spinning the Gamble Wheel. You need to land in a green segment to win an additional free spin. If you land in a red segment, you will revert back to the base game. The red segments are very thin but there is still a risk. The maximum number of free spins you can begin the feature with is 20.

Once in, you collect symbols to win extra free spins and boost the minimum Megaways. The symbols are collected irrespective of where they land or if part of a winning combination or not. You begin by trying to collect the lowest value symbol, 9, and so on. Here’s what you need to do:

Symbol Collect Extra Free Spins Minimum Megaways
9 20 4 NA
10 20 4 500
J 15 4 500
Q 15 3 1,000
K 12 3 1,000
A 12 3 2,000
Blue Orb 10 2 10,000
Green Gemstone 10 2 10,000
Purple Swirl 8 1 50,000
Merlin 8 1 117,649

There’s a meter to the left-hand side of the reels displaying your progress. If you manage to collect all symbols, and begin the round with 20 free spins, you could benefit from 47 free spins in total. You’ll also play with more Megaways/ways to win the further you advance.

Lastly, there’s a Merlin Bet feature for non UK players. Costing 80 x your total stake, you get access to the Free Spins feature. Purchasing this extra will give you between 3 and 6 scatters randomly. Also, the RTP will increase up to 96.5% (from 96% in standard play).

Originality








The Merlin’s Revenge Megaways slot is quite similar to Morgana Megaways in many ways. Visually, the setting is different and the main character is now the wise wizard as opposed to King Arthur’s half-sister (Morgana). The symbols are very similar though.

In terms of the gameplay, both slots come with mystery symbols and Max Megaways features. Merlin’s Revenge Megaways has the added extra of the Merlin’s Magic feature which is a nice touch. This latest game also comes with cascading wins where its predecessor doesn’t.

In the Free Spins feature, the similarities are also evident. Whilst more free spins can be won in Morgana Megaways, the cascading wins more than make up for this. Merlin’s Revenue Megaways doesn’t offer cash bonuses each time you collect a certain number of symbols.

That said, in Merlin’s Revenge Megaways, the max win potential is more than double that of Morgana Megaways (28,988 x bet vs 10,800 x bet). Overall, the sequel is a better slot, both graphically and in terms of win potential. I’m sure Megaways fans will be pleased.

My favourite iSoftBet Megaways slot is Royale with Cheese Megaways. It comes with a unique Build a Burger feature where you pick from the menu to win extra free spins, an increased starting multiplier, increased Megaways and symbol removals. It also offers 50,000 x stake top payouts.

If you’re a fan of unique Megaways slots, Moriarty Megaways (also from iSoftBet) comes with 3 reel sets during the free spins, up to 352,947 Megaways and 42,553 x bet max wins.

Pros
  • 28,988 x max wins
  • Superb Free Spins feature
  • Great design + soundtrack
Cons
  • Very similar to Morgana Megaways
