Play'n GO has launched its newest video slot, titled Rise of Merlin, which as its name suggests centers on the famous wizard from the Arthurian legend.
In this game, however, Merlin is a young wizard, still learning the art of creating magic.
Rise of Merlin is a 5-reel 3-row game, with a total of 10 paylines, offering plenty of exciting in-game elements. To start getting payouts, punters will need to land at least three matching symbols.
Make the Most out of the Magical Orb
The game's reels are populated with a wide variety of symbols, including Merlin's favourite one – the Magical Orb, which serves as both the Wild and the Scatter, helping players complete additional winning combinations and also activating the Free Spins round.
Land 3 or more Magical Orbs on the reels and the Free Spins round will start, while players get a minimum of 8 spins. Retriggering the feature is easy: simply land 3 or more Scatters and additional 8 spins will be added to your count.
Before the round starts, one symbol will be selected to become an expanding symbol. It will start to expand once normal payouts have been made, while other symbols on that reel will turn into expanding ones as well.
Free Spins round can be retriggered until all icons turn into expanding symbols. Rise of Merlin is a high variance game, with quite a generous RTP and action-packed gameplay that will keep you seated for hours.
Creating an Exciting Game
Commenting on the launch of this game, Johan Tornqvist, Chief Executive Officer at Play'n GO stated the company released games based around many popular ideas themes but added they made sure the game suits the theme rather than just trying to jump on something popular for an initial buzz.
He added that games such as Legacy of Egypt and Viking Runecraft were proof that this stance had worked.
Tornqvist explained that Rise of Merlin was an exciting game with great features to enjoy, while the theme of the game only added to the player’s enjoyment, and that was just what the company wanted.
