Merlin's Riches Slots

Here’s one thing we feel is most important to know about Merlin’s Riches slots. It begins with the reels and spaces set up on a 5 x 4 grid, but that changes with one of the two bonus rounds in this Medieval-themed video slot.

The Paytable Details

Payouts from the different symbols aren’t always generous, but the stacked wilds can make it easier to get multiple combinations on one spin.

  • 10 and Jack – 5 to 30 coins
  • Queen and King – 5 to 40 coins
  • Ace – 10 to 50 coins
  • Potion – 15 to 100 coins
  • Sword – 20 to 200 coins
  • Morgan le Fay – 30 to 600 coins
  • King Arthur – 40 to 1,000 coins

The Merlin Wild pays 2,000 coins if you get five of them across the reels. This Wild often stacks and fills the entire reel. The final two symbols on the paytable are the Dragon Free Games symbol and the Bonus Crystal Ball.

We like to test out slot games thoroughly. Any slot game experience comes down to luck, but volatility, RTP percentages, and bonus features all help you find the best slots to play. For our test, we opted for 10 cents per line or $2.50 per spin and nothing happened. We didn’t even get one small winning combination.

We opted to pay the $87.50 to buy the free spins bonus round. We started with 10 free spins, and there is the option of gambling them, but we decided not to. Our winnings from the free spins came to $23.50, so that wasn’t much better.

The Bonus Features

Three or more Dragon Scatters trigger 10 free spins. You have the option to gamble them, reaching a total of 50 free spins if you win the coin toss rounds. If you don’t, you drop to 5 free spins. During these free spins, at least one Merlin Wild reel appears.

The Crystal Ball Bonus switches the game grid to a smaller 5 x 3 set-up and you get three re-spins. You might get another Bonus symbol, a +1 Spin symbol, or a blank. A +1 adds a spin to your re-spins counter. When you reach 5 Bonus symbols, you level up and win a multiplier of 3x to 500x.

The Betting Options and Rules

Fans of penny slots will love Merlin’s Riches slots as bets of 1 cent per line are offered. You do have to activate all 25 paylines, but you can play for 25 cents per spin. If that’s too low, coin values go up to $1 or a max bet of $25 per spin.

The game has a max of 50,000 times your coin value. If you have a spin where the winnings exceed that, the spin ends when you it 50,000x, and a new spin starts.
