Those who like "high risk - high reward" type of games definitely shouldn't miss Merlin's Riches by RealTime Gaming, the recent entry to the ever-expanding developer roster that celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and doesn't seem to show any signs of fatigue.

This 5x4 slot game takes you to the good old Britannia of the Arthurian myths, where the fabled wizard becomes your guide in a quest for the treasures of Avalon. High volatility programmed into the game makes for long and, ultimately, rewarding gaming sessions, and the Holy Grail sought by the Knights of the Round Table is, in this case, a top reward of 50,000 times the bet. So carry on with this Merlin's Riches review to find out more about what the mists of Avalon hide!

Game Design

The artists behind the game did a great job of recreating the serene meadows and cliffs you'd expect to see on the legendary island, and they look decidedly Tolkien-esque. On top of that, there is a neat little soundtrack loop inspired by medieval music, which adds to the immersion and contributes to the game's escapist romantic mood.

Basic Gameplay

The game's essential components don't stray much from the typical one-click slot rules, and beginners may be deceived by this simplicity - once the bonus features start kicking in, you can easily get overwhelmed with the details. However, learning the features and their effects is worthwhile, and only mastering combinations makes the big win possible.

Advanced Mechanics

Playing Merlin's Riches for real money requires you to have a complete understanding of the following bonuses that can take the game to the next level:
