Rise of Merlin is set across a 5×3 grid, with five reels and three rows. Paylines in the game range from 1-10, with players given the option to change them before they start. You’ll also be able to select how much you bet on each spin, with choices between €0.01 all the way up to €100.
There are two classes of symbols in the game, the lower-paying and the higher-paying. Low-paying symbols are the typical A-10 card royals, you’ll need to match at least three on a line to land a win. High-paying symbols include the magical owl, two different coloured dragons and Merlin himself. These premium symbols only need two on a line to land a win, but Merlin will give you an impressive 500x your stake if you land five on a line.
Rise of Merlin video slot adds a gamble feature to each of your wins. Every win you land will give you a choice of gambling the money in a card game. You can either guess the colour or the suit of the card for either 2x or 4x your winnings.
As well as the typical symbols, the Rise of Merlin bonus symbol comes in the form of a crystal ball. This symbol acts as wild, substituting for other symbols in the game and helping you to hopefully land a big win. It also acts as a paying symbol itself, with five on a line giving you 500x times your stake.
Finally, as with other Play’n GO titles, this bonus symbol also acts as a scatter. Landing three or more crystal balls anywhere on the reels will unlock the Rise of Merlin free spins round. This bonus feature awards you eight free spins. Before the round starts, a random symbol is chosen, and this symbol will then act as a special expanding symbol during the free spins. Any time you land three or more of this symbol anywhere, it will expand to cover the reels, helping you land some impressive wins.
The game includes a bonus symbol which acts as a wild and a scatter. You can unlock free spins which will give you a special expanding symbol. Free spins can be retriggered, and an extra expanding symbol is given.
