Storm Gaming’s Magic Merlin MegaWays Slot Review

Conjuring up a big win is the goal in Magic Merlin MegaWays, a superbly designed sorcery-themed video slot from Storm Gaming. Played using the shape-shifting game engine, the number of ways to win here can reach up to 117,649. Look out for symbol drop reaction wins as well as a free spins feature with an expanding multiplier. Play on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.

Superbly designed

The design in some MegaWays slots has been a bit hit and miss. Magic Merlin MegaWays definitely falls into the hit camp. You won’t see many better looking and sounding MegaWays slots than this. Set against Merlin’s magical laboratory, the symbols appear on stone blocks that drop onto the reels. There you’ll find A to 10 royals as well as scrolls, wands, bottles of potion and magical orbs. The bearded figure of Merlin is the most rewarding symbol. Land 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 of these in combination for a payout of 2, 5, 10, 25 or 50 times your total stake. There’s also a wild.

Reaction feature for continuous wins

After a winning combination hits, the successful symbols are removed and new ones drop in and replace them. These ‘reactions’ keep on coming as long as a new winner hits. This is known as the Reaction feature. The MegaWays game mechanic means that the number of symbols appearing on each reel changes with each spin. The number of MegaWays active changes too. If the reels reach their maximum size, they’ll offer 117,649 ways to create a winner.

Mystery card transforming symbols

You can see mystery cards randomly appearing after a spin – these will transform into a randomly chosen symbol to give you guaranteed winning combinations. This is called the Mystery Cards feature.

Free Spins feature with Reactions

The Book of Spells is the scatter. Land 4 or more of these on the same spin to trigger the Free Spins feature. You’ll then receive 12 free spins (plus 5 extra free spins for each extra scatter on the triggering spin). The symbol drop game engine remains in play during the free spins.

Increasing multiplier

This time though, each ‘reaction’ win increases a multiplier by 1x. There’s no limit to how high this multiplier can reach. It doesn’t reset to 1x following an unsuccessful symbol drop either. The only way is up. 3 or 4 scatters will add 5 or 10 more free spins to your total – for unlimited free spins. The scatter will only appear on the top row.

50,000 x Stake Max Wins

We’ve seen plenty of other MegaWays slots that offer a virtually identical range of extras as Magic Merlin MegaWays. We haven’t played many with the stunning visuals and catchy backing track you’ll find here. It really does look and sound terrific.

If you like MegaWays slots, then Magic Merlin MegaWays ticks all the right boxes. If you’ve never tried this type of slot before, then this magical adventure is a good place to start. Variance wise it’s high with maximum wins of 50,000 times your stake on each spin or free spin. If you like this type of slot, head to our dedicated MegaWays slots section.
