Magic tricks and intriguing wizardry await on the slot from iSoftBet. Merlin, the mighty enchanter from the Arthurian legend, is using his magic mirror to conjure random features, mysterious mirror symbols and a free spins round that can lead to wins of up to 720 times your bet on every spin.
Merlin’s Magic Mirror is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 20 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only.

The wizard’s cave in a purple hue forms the fitting background to the translucent game window, creating an air of suspense and magic. Merlin stands on the left with his staff, ready to conjure one of three reel modifiers. Owls, magic books and potions, as well as Merlin, dominate the reels. A medieval soundtrack rounds off a well-designed slot.
The game has nine regular pay symbols, starting with the card royals from 10 through to A at the low end. Lining up five across the reels will award 2x to 6x your stake. They are followed by blue potion bottles, green magic books, owls and Merlin himself. Pays for a single five of a kind range from 8x to 25x your bet.
An intricate purple icon ornamented with a golden frame and marked with the word itself is the wild symbol, substituting for all regular pay symbols. A golden brooch-like arrangement marked again with the word itself acts as the scatter.
The wizard and the magic mirrors are the key to scoring bigger wins on this slot. Three Merlin’s Magic Tricks can trigger randomly on any spin in the base game to modify the reels and virtually guarantee a win. All are announced at the start of a spin by a magic mirror appearing in the centre of the screen.
Get ready for the main act of the wizard’s magic show when you hit three or more scatters anywhere on the reels in one spin. You will get 10 Magic Mirror free spins, which cannot be retriggered. All scatters from the triggering spin will transform into a sticky Magic Mirror symbol for the duration of the feature. More can land during the free spins and will be locked in place as well.
All Magic Mirror symbol in view will reveal either a common pay symbol or a coin win after each free spin. The coin wins from each mirror symbol are added and paid before the next free spin starts.
This was quite an enjoyable magic show. Plenty of features, a bonus round with sticky symbols and at most medium variance will keep you well entertained even with smaller balances. It won’t break the bank either way with the regards to losses or wins but is capable of delivering regularly medium wins.
