Merlin's Millions features (surprise, surprise...) the wizard Merlin pretty heavily. There's no cinematic introduction, but it appears that Merlin is adventuring in a cave and it's up to players to help him cast some spells and make some magic.
The game boasts all sorts of appropriate reel symbols, such as spellbooks, bejewelled staffs and eyeballs in jars, as well as some creepy numbers with googly eyes. There's also some orchestral music that bears a similarity to the music in the films of another wizard called Mr Harry Potter.
Merlin himself looks a little more like another famous wizard – Gandalf from Lord of the Rings. However, he's a bit clumsier than Gandalf, often struggling with spells backfiring in his face and knocking on the screen to wave hello.
All in all, the theme is quite charming and it also seems rather appropriate; the idea of potentially making thousands of AUD just from spinning a few reels certainly sounds like magic to us.
