Rise of Merlin Theme
Visually, Rise of Merlin is rather good. With the wizard’s chamber in the backdrop, symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 card values. You will also see owls, 2 dragons and Merlin the wizard himself. Merlin is the most rewarding symbol by some distance. It gives you 1, 10, 100 or 500 times your stake for 2, 3, 4 or 5 across a payline.
Free Spins feature
The mysterious crystal ball is the scatter and wild symbol. Like Merlin, 5 on a payline will reward you with 500 times your stake. If you get 3 or more wild/scatter symbols, you will activate the Free Spins feature. 8 free spins will be your reward.
Up to 9 Special Expanding Symbols
Before the free spins begin, 1 regular symbol (bar the wild/scatter) will be chosen randomly to be the special expanding symbol. When this appears, it will expand to take over the whole reel. If you get 1 on each reel, you will fill the reels with the same symbol.
Finally, 3 or more wild/scatters appearing on a free spin will retrigger the feature and give you 8 additional free spins. Furthermore, an additional special expanding symbol is chosen randomly so you’ll have 2 of them in play for 8 free spins. You can retrigger again and again with 8 free spins awarded each time. Each retrigger gives you 1 more special expanding symbol with up to 9 possible.
Rise of Merlin Slot Verdict
Rise of Merlin is similar to Book of Dead (also by Play ‘n GO) as it comes with a special expanding symbol in the Free Spins feature. The difference here is that you will play with up to 9 special expanding symbols if you manage various retriggers. This gives you additional opportunities to win big.
Highly volatile, what you want is for Merlin to be chosen to be the special expanding symbol. If you then get a Merlin symbol on each reel, it will expand to give you a screen full of Merlin symbols. This will result in the maximum win of 5,000 times your total stake.
The Rise of Merlin slot isn’t exactly original but it has great win potential and the graphics/animations are superb. In case you’re wondering, it’s identical in terms of gameplay to Legacy of Dead (also by Play ‘n GO).
