Lord Merlin and the Lady of the Lake from Play’n GO is the prequel to the developer’s Rise of Merlin, released in 2019. This newer version features a young Merlin as he journeys to greatness with the Lady of the Lake. The slot is set against calm blue water with lily pads and surrounding greenery, and the flowing soundtrack reflects the serenity. The maximum win in this game can be achieved in the Free Spins round due to the massive multipliers that come with it. Lord Merlin and the Lady of the Lake can be played at Play’n GO casinos, online and on mobile.
Lord Merlin and the Lady of the Lake is a 5x3 slot that features a varying number of paylines, from 1 to 10. Bets range from $.01 to $100 per spin and the slot is playable on all devices. The default RTP is 96.2% but it can fluctuate. Volatility is high.
Symbols include 10-A royals, Merlin’s hat, a crest, staff, and Merlin. The latter pays out a staggering 1000x the stake for 5 of a kind. The Lady of the Lake, who stars as the wild, also pays out 1000x the stake. There is also a sword scatter, which changes into a wild scatter during the Free Spins round.
When 3 scatters land on the reels, the Free Spins round is triggered. Players get 8 free spins and a multiplier of 1x, 10x, or 100x the bet for 3, 4, or 5 scattersת respectively. Before the round starts, a symbol is randomly chosen as the expanding symbol. When it lands, it expands to fill the reels. A new symbol is chosen before each spin.
During the Free Spins, if 2 Excalibur swords land on the reels at the same time, the Nested Free Spins round is triggered. During this round, 1 symbol is selected as the expanding symbol for the whole round. Nested Free Spins can be retriggered by landing another 2 Excalibur swords, with no limit.
Lord Merlin and the Lady of the Lake is not only a feature-filled slotת but the theme is compelling without being too mysterious. The graphics are lovely to look at and the soundtrack wavers between enchanting and enthralling. The top win of the game is 10,000x the stake, but lower, significant wins are possible as well due to expanding symbols and multipliers in the Free Spins round.
