Merlin’s Money Burst is a magic-themed 5-reel, 60-payline slot, playable across all devices and accepting bets in the range 0.30 – £62.7 per spin. The max bet depends on your bet level.
It would not be excessive to call the Merlin’s Money Burst a Frankenstein slot as it borrows the WMS’ Bruce Lee mechanics and the Merlin character from NextGen (Both NextGen and WMS are SG subsidiaries).

Merlin’s Moneyburst - Slot Review
As you can see, the slot has a bit odd reel arrangement. Feature-wise, Merlin’s Money Burst comes with a free spins round, wild modifiers, SuperBet, and sticky symbols. As for the standard symbols, you will land low-value A to 10 royals, and better-paying spellbooks, money bags, potion bottles.

The SuperBet is a common feature across the NextGen titles. This is a side bet feature that gives you a multiplier of up to x10 as long as the wild Merlin is a part of a winning combination. The multiplier is determined by the SuperBet level you have active.
Merlin Held Re-Spins Feature
The feature is activated when the first two reels contain the same matching symbol. In this case, you are awarded 5 re-spins with reels 1 and 2 being held. Merlin can turn random symbols on the other reels into wilds. If you land 3 scatters, you get 5 extra re-spins.
Merlin Free Games
Land 3 scatters on reels 3, 4, and 5 to get 10 free spins. Merlin can transform random symbols on reels 3, 4 and 5 into wilds.
Merlin Wild Spins Feature
This is the most rewarding yet the most difficult to trigger feature. You need to land matching symbols on reels 1 and 2, as well as 3 scatters on reels 3, 4, and 5 to get 10 free spins. Reels 1 and 1 become wilds. Merlin may add more wilds to reels 3, 4, and 5, too.
Merlin’s Money Burst design is a bit childish, but overall, the slot does its magic and gives you the chance to land some solid wins. Of course, that comes at the expense of a high variance, so think twice if you can afford to lose several spins before you hit a significant win.
