Despite its confused theme, this Sicilian Sun mobile slot is surprisingly good fun with some simple mechanics and decent size wins.
What do we mean by a ‘confused theme’? Ok, without looking at the images, what’s the first thing you think of when you imagine Sicily? Or even Italy?
Well, forget rolling vineyards, cultural monuments and pretty seaside vistas. What you get is a tribal slot, with Aztec / African masks, hatchets, tambourine and wild horses.
If it wasn’t for the name, this could be set somewhere in the dawn of mankind – with the lady by the side looking like she’d travel back in time from a hippy festival, just to really confuse things.
The thing is, Merkur gaming has never been about creating visually striking slot machines online.
The best you can hope for is a good enough theme (like in the Night of the Werewolf slot) and then some fantastic wins.
Because what they are good at is giving you a good paytable, regardless of the volatility of the game.
And while this Sicilian Sun doesn’t have a whole load of features, it does have some fantastic 5 of a kind wins that make it worth your while spinning.
Especially when you consider that you get wins left to right, right to left and also when you find three symbols in the middle 3 reels. Better than a pays both ways slot.
At least one thing about the name of this real money game rings true: you get plenty of sunshine in the form of the colossal symbol that is the wild.
Covering a 2×2 space, it lands on either reel 1 and 2, or reels 4 and 5 – sometimes, though not often, both.
You are almost always guaranteed a win thanks to these symbols, bringing a little sunshine to your wallet.
At the end of the day, this Sicilian Sun slot game doesn’t try and break any rules or do anything all that different. For that, you have to play on Light Blocks.
Instead, you get a decent paytable, some easy wins, and a fairly low to mid variance fun sunny game.
Set in ancient times. Sure. But hey, maybe Sicily has a rich tribal history we just don’t know about. Just roll with it.

Pays All Ways: Wins are paid left to right, right to left and for the three middle positions on all 20 of the paylines.
Colossal Wilds: The Sun is the wild and appears as a large colossal wild in blocks of 2x2. It can land on reel 1 and 2, reels 4 and 5 or on both reels 1/2 and 4/5.
Gamble Feature: You can double your win by either picking the right colour card (red or black) or go up and down a ladder prize. If you lose, you lose your win, however.
We are not saying that Sicilian Sun slot on mobile will make a huge impact on your gambling life.
But it is one of those Merkur casino games you start spinning, and then keep spinning, thanks to a fantastic paytable and some quick wins.
But with pays all ways mechanics and colossal wild symbols, it's fun to look at and to spin. One for quick 5-minute gameplay in between breaks.
Sicilian Sun is a 20 payline slot machine which pays both ways, as well as in the centre three reels. The only feature is the colossal wild which replaces other symbols to create wins on a payline.
