Book of Merlin Theme/Symbols

Merlin’s laboratory, which is filled with books of spells and bubbling potions, is the setting in the Book of Merlin slot game. On the reels you’ll find A to 10 royals alongside a flask full of liquid, an amulet and a magic wand. The bearded figure of Merlin is the most lucrative symbol. The master magician pays 1, 10, 100 or 500 x stake if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

Free Spins feature

The wizard’s book of spells is the wild. This replaces all the standard symbols. The book is also the scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll trigger the game’s only extra, the Free Spins feature.

Trigger the feature round and you’ll receive 10 free spins. Before the bonus begins, 1 symbol is picked at random. Each time this symbol lands during the free spins it will expand to fill the whole of the reel. This special expanding symbol can be anything apart from the book of spells. You can also retrigger the feature to give you another 10 free spins.

Book of Merlin thoughts

1×2 Gaming has kept things nice and simple here. There’s nothing complicated about the gameplay. In fact, Book of Merlin is a clone of many ‘book’ slots like Novomatic’s Book of Ra Deluxe or Play ‘n GO’s Book of Dead. The Free Spins feature can be well worth landing though, especially if you manage to get a high value symbol as the expander – getting Merlin can lead to 5,000 x stake wins on every free spin.

The gameplay might be a little too familiar for some players who’ve plenty the aforementioned games. If you want a simple slice of wizardry, then Book of Merlin delivers precisely that. I would suggest you try Legacy of Dead (by Play ‘n GO) as it offers the same mechanic but with up to 9 special expanding symbols in the feature.
