The design in Merlin’s Magic Mirror is excellent. The setting is a crystal-filled cave. On the reels you’ll find A to 10 gemstones plus a bottle of potion, a book of spells and an owl. Merlin is the most rewarding symbol. Land 3, 4 or 5 of the master magician in combination and you’ll receive a payout of 2.5, 5 or 25 times your stake. There’s also a wild that substitutes for all of the standard symbols.
Merlin’s Magic Mirror is more than just the proverbial ‘pretty face’. There are some quality extras on offer here too. We begin with the Merlin’s Mystery Magic feature which can strike following any losing spin. Merlin can transform symbols so they all match to create a new winning combination. Then you have the Wizard Wilds feature - Merlin can magically morph a collection of symbols into wilds. A new payout calculation the follows.
I really like the Merlin’s Magic Mirror Respins feature - land 3 matching symbols on reel 1 to trigger this round. The magic mirror will then reveal a symbol. This will remain sticky during the respin. The respins keep on coming until there’s a respin where no new matching symbol lands.
The best is the Magic Mirror Free Spins feature - land 3 scatters on the same spin and you’ll receive 10 free spins. The scatters from the triggering spin are held and turn into mirrors. After each free spin, they will turn into the same matching symbol or award an instant cash bonus. Land more scatters and they too are held and turn into mirrors. This offers the potential for even bigger matching transformed symbols and extra instant bonuses.
We really liked Merlin’s Magic Mirror. The visuals are fantasy-tinged soundtrack are top notch. There’s plenty of variety on offer from the features with the respins and free spins round both offering plenty of potential. The variance here is in the medium to high range with top wins of 720 times your stake (from the Merlin’s Magic Mirror Respins feature).
