The Merlin and the Ice Queen Morgana slot follows on other Arthurian legend adventures Rise of Merlin and Lord Merlin and the Lady of the Lake. The backstory is Morgana has fled Camelot after her brother King Arthur’s coronation. Merlin then goes in search of Morgana

Set in a frozen wasteland, where the Ice Queen (Morgana) resides, it looks like a scene from Disney’s Frozen movie, albeit with a more sinister feel. The reels are held up with frozen chains. On the reels you will see A, K, Q, J and 10 royals. The higher value symbols are represented by rings, cauldrons, spellbooks and Merlin. Merlin is the best paying symbol giving you 0.5, 5, 50 or 250 x your total stake for 2, 3, 4 or 5 in combination.

Morgana is the wild symbol and can appear on any reel. Paying up to 250 x stake for 5 on a payline, it substitutes for any other symbol mentioned above. Importantly, it can appear stacked. When this happens, you’ll activate the Morgana Multiplier feature (more details below).

Finally, Merlin’s staff is the scatter symbol with 3 or more triggering free spins. Here are all symbols you’ll find in both the base game and Free Spins feature:

merlin-and-the-ice-queen-morgana-mobile-slot

As you’d expect from a Play ‘n GO slot game, Merlin and the Ice Queen Morgana has been created using the latest HTML5 technology. This allows you to play this game on mobile, tablet and desktop devices.

Merlin and the Ice Queen Morgana Bonus Features

The Merlin and the Ice Queen Morgana slot comes with 2 bonus features. There are Morgana Multipliers up to 8x in both the base game and Free Spins feature. In the latter, there’s up to 20 free spins with a special expanding symbol that pays scatter style.

Morgana Multiplier feature

When the Morgana wild symbols appears fully stacked on any reel, the Morgana Multiplier feature is triggered. A 2x, 3x, 5x or 8x multiplier is randomly applied. This is applied to all wins on the triggering spin. This feature is available both in the base game and Free Spins feature (below).

Free Spins feature

merlin-and-the-ice-queen-morgana-slot-free-spins-feature

To play the Free Spins feature, you need to land 3 or more Merlin’s staff scatters anywhere on the reels. With 10 free spins awarded, 3, 4 or 5 of them will give you a 1, 10 or 100 x stake prize.

Before the free spins commence, a randomly chosen symbol becomes the special expanding symbol. This can be a high paying symbol or royal. The chosen expanding symbol will expand depending on what symbol you get:

  • High Paying Symbol: 2 instances of that symbol appearing on the reels
  • Royal Symbol: 3 instances of that symbol appearing on the reels

Your win potential will depend on which symbol is the chosen one. The higher the value of the symbol, the bigger your potential win per free spin:

Symbol Max Win Per Free Spin 8x Multiplier
Q, J + 10 15 x stake 120 x stake
A + K 25 x stake 200 x stake
Ring + Cauldron 100 x stake 800 x stake
Spellbook 500 x stake 4,000 x stake
Merlin 2,500 x stake 20,000 x stake

Special expanding symbols don’t need to appear on adjacent reels to give you a payout. When it comes to the wild, only the expanded Morgana wild can substitute for a special expanding symbol.

The Morgana Multiplier feature can also apply meaning a random multiplier up to 8x on any free spin. Finally, 3 or more scatters during the feature will give you 10 additional free spins. That means 20 free spins in total.

Originality








The Merlin and the Ice Queen Morgana slot follows the pattern of other ‘Book of’ games with special expanding symbols with free spins. The difference in this game is there are Morgana multipliers in both the base game and free spins.

The top 8x multiplier can result in 20,000 x stake max wins on each base game or free spin if you get a screen full of Merlin symbols. This is much more likely in the Free Spins feature if Merlin is chosen as the special expanding symbol.

In summary, Merlin and the Ice Queen Morgana is well designed and offers huge win potential. Yes, it’s another ‘Book of’ slot but it’s worth a few spins for sure.

If it’s ‘Book of’ games you’re after, my personal favourites are Book of Shadows (Nolimit City) and Book of Toro (ELK Studios). The latter combines to chaotic elements from previous Toro slots and combines them nicely with free spins/expanding symbols.

Pros
  • 20,000 x stake max wins
  • Max win possible in base game
  • Excellent design/theme
Cons
  • Another 'Book of' slot
