This fantastical slot from Play’n Go is based on the mythical Merlin, who you might get to meet alongside dragons, owls and perhaps some other creatures too. You’ll feel like you’re underwater as you spin the reels, and the dramatic music will make you feel like everything’s at stake as you vye for success and glory. There’s a very grand setting in Rise of Merlin, and stunning beasts drawn with a real eye for detail. Merlin might be rising, but your balance could be too - there are some chances to really win big on this enchanting slot, if you’re ready to take the risk...
How to play
Rise of Merlin offers just 10 paylines, but as a result the prizes on offer are pretty exciting! Even the low-value symbols will offer you plenty of money - from just a £1 spin, you could be winning £8, while even matching 3 of the lowest-value symbols will get you 50p back. The stakes are upped considerably as we look at the more valuable symbols - the Merlin symbol, along with the Wild, could see you winning £500 - again, from just a £1 spin. The Wild symbol also doubles as the Scatter symbol, so not only does it pay along paylines, but when scattered across the play board too - just find 3 or more anywhere in play to win. Get 5 Scatter symbols anywhere for £20; it might not be as valuable as when it’s acting as a Wild symbol, but it’s definitely something.
Get 3 or more Scatter symbols, and you’ll not only get a cash win but Free Spins too! At first, 8 Free Spins will be awarded, and one regular symbol will be chosen at random to become the special Expanding Symbol throughout your Free Spins. When enough of them land, they’ll expand to cover all reel positions, so you’ve got the chance for extra wins. Should you find another 3 or more Scatter symbols inside the Free Spins, you’ll retrigger them, giving you an additional 8, for which another special Expanding Symbol will be randomly chosen. Not only that, but if you feel like taking a risk, there’s a Gamble Round too. After a win, you’ll have the chance to multiply your win in the base game by correctly guessing either the colour or suit of a mystery card - you can play the Gamble Round up to 5 times consecutively too!
