King Arthur’s famous wizard gets a second outing from NextGen Gaming in Merlin’s Magic Respins.  It’s a 5 reel, 50 payline slot that comes with stacked wilds, a free spins bonus feature and the Super Bet feature which offers wild respins (for a price). Try and conjure up a jackpot from between 50p and £100 per spin.

Merlin’s laboratory forms the backdrop to the game. The imagery on the reels is styled in similar fashion and includes a telescope, parchment, a book of spells and a goblet full of magic potion. Five goblets will give you a 500 coin payout.

Merlin himself is the game’s wild, appearing on reels 2, 3 and 4 in the base game but on all 5 reels during the Wild Respins. He substitutes for all other symbols apart from the Cauldron scatter and can appear as a stacked symbol and fill an entire reel.

If you opt for the Super Bet feature, the stacked wild will remain in place from the triggering spin and you’ll be awarded between 1 and 5 respins depending on how much you’ve wagered on the Super Bet. The minimum 50 coins will give you one respin, 100 coins will give you two.

Three respins are on offer for 200 coins, four for 400 coins. 500 coins will get you an extra five respins when the feature hits. The stacked wilds can appear on all five reels during the respins. Even getting them on just two reels can provide a big boost to your potential wins.

Merlin’s Magic Respins also comes with a standard Free Games feature which is triggered when you hit 3 cauldron scatter symbols anywhere on the reels – you’ll be awarded 7 free spins. Merlin appears at the side of the reels – he’ll fire his magic wand to turn random symbols into wilds. It’s possible to retrigger the feature and earn even more free games. Similarly, the Wild Respins can also hit during the feature.

The visuals on show in Merlin’s Magic Respins are impressive. There are plenty of bangs, crashes and flashes as the mythical sorcerer works his magic. The symbols are well drawn but it takes a little while to become attuned to the black backdrop. The on screen action is all played out to a magical style soundtrack which really matches the mood.

The variance in Merlin’s Magic Respins is medium so expect a balanced range of small and larger payouts. If you get lucky with the stacked wilds and respins then Merlin can certainly conjure up some magical payouts.

If you like magical-themed slots, Voodoo Magic by Pragmatic Play is pretty good as to is Wizard of Oz Ruby Slippers by WMS.
