Lord Merlin and the Lady of the Lake is a brand new and great looking slot from Play'n GO. Maybe you remember Rise of Merlin, a slot they released back in 2019? This is the follow-up slot and from the looks of it, they have spruced things up a little. You might notice that unlike the first slot of the series, you won't find yourself in a snowy setting. Instead, the game has moved over to a much greener, serene-looking setting with a small lake and plenty of lily's. In other words, Play'n GO have followed in their own footsteps yet again by created beautiful visuals along with great animations.
When it comes to the special features of the game, this slot is all about the expanding symbols which also appear in the two bonus features. The two features being a free spin feature where you can win up to 10 000x your total stake, as well as the Excalibur, Spins feature involving wild scatters.
How to win big in Lord Merlin and the Lady of the Lake – Free Spins feature
Should you land 3 or more scatters during any spin, you will trigger the free spins feature and will start off with 8 free spins. The Excalibur symbol is the scatter of the game. With each free spin, a random symbol will be selected from the royals or high value symbols and will become the special expanding symbol throughout the feature.
This expanding symbol can reward you with winning combinations even on non-adjacent reels. Should a high-value symbol be selected as the special expanding symbol, you will only need 2 anywhere on the reels in order to get you a win. However if a royal is chosen, then you will need 3 of them. Your win will depend on which symbol you get.
- 10, J, Q – 100x your total stake
- K, A – 150x your total stake
- Lion, Merlin's Hat – 750x your total stake
- Merlin's Staff – 2 000x your total stake
- Merlin – 10 000x your total stake
Excalibur Spins feature
In the free spins feature, you will see the scatter transforming into a wild scatter symbol. This will function as a normal wild symbol by substituting all symbols as well as paying 1, 10, 100 or 1 000x your total stake for 2, 3, 4 or 5 wild scatters respectively. Landing 2 or more wild scatters will then trigger the Excalibur Spins feature.
Each wild scatter will reward you with 1 Excalibur Spin. You will then see the selected special expanding symbol being locked into place for the entire feature. This can then expand on all the Excalibur Spins where 2 or more wild scatters will re-trigger the feature, resulting in more Excalibur Spins for you. Even better, there are no limits to how many time this can happen.
Look and Feel of Lord Merlin and the Lady of the Lake
Once the slot has loaded, you will be transported to a green and serene setting. Behind the reel set, you will be seeing a lake filled with lily's and lily pads. Of course, this is the lake of the lady we have heard so much about. Surrounding the lake are rows of beautiful green trees. All this helps in creating the perfect mysterious atmosphere, giving off a medieval feel to it all and complete with graphics in high quality.
The symbols on the reels include five low-value symbols, which consist of the standard 10, J, Q, K and A royals. These have been beautifully designed to look like twisting old branches, with a little hint of colour to them. The high-value symbols include various images such as a lion crest, Merlin's hat, and finally Merlin as the highest paying symbol.
