Get ready to meet an epic wizard playing the Play’n GO Rise of Merlin slots. There are countless legends, verses and stories in Wales and England about him. Developers start a new chapter in their games by including high volatility mechanics in Rise of Merlin.
These fantasy-themed online slots have 5 reels and 3 rows where up to 10 paylines can be triggered. The game allows using bets between 1 cent and 100 EUR per spin, which makes it suitable for anyone – from gamblers to amateurs.
You have to keep your eyes open a bit when you play slots by this developer, because they allow operators to choose between different RTP settings. This game usually is offered with 96.58%, but in some of the casinos, these slots have it much lower – 94.51%. You have to check the settings in the game itself in advance. It is unstable anyway (being high risk), so everything in it is determined by the free spin round where you can get really good awards.
You can say that the visuals are quite ordinary, but this is really not the most important. It is based on the legendary medieval wizard Merlin and you will see as a background a great structure similar to a hall with arches and columns. You can notice the well-known royal symbols on the reels (from 10 to Ace), as well as owls, dragons and the wizard Merlin himself. Of course, it is the strongest symbol and gives a huge potential of 500 times your bet for 5-of-a-kind on a payline. The Wild is a crystal ball and substitutes all the ordinary symbols. Just like the Merlin symbol, 5 Wilds award 500 times your bet.
Slot Characteristics and Bonuses
Just like in previous games Magic Mirror Deluxe and Book of Ra Magic, the free spin feature is really important in this one, too. In order to trigger it, you will have to receive 3 or more Scatter symbols, which awards you 8 free spins immediately. You are probably familiar with it, but before the feature itself is triggered, one of the ordinary symbols is chosen at random as a special expanding symbol. When it appears during the free spins, it expands in order to cover the entire reel.
It is quite identical with the “Book of Dead“, but you might notice 3 or more Scatters when this feature is triggered again. Then you will not only have 8 new spins, but a second random symbol will become special. If this feature is triggered once more, the process is repeated. This way, even though it is not very likely, it is still possible to bring home the big Jackpot of 5000 times your bet.
You could say that there are various features from multiple games in “Rise of Merlin”, since its gameplay is very common and quite popular. There is no doubt that these slots are massive and it may be even better than its predecessors.
