Arthurian Legend Comes to Life in the New Rise of Merlin Slot

Play’n GO has just announced the launch on another new game, that will hopefully become a successful part of its offering of video slots.

The renowned supplier of online casino content has been really busy this year, adding a number of new slot game releases to its extensive portfolio.

Magic is Coming to the Reels

The company’s latest game to have hit the market brings a touch of magic on the reels. Titled Rise of Merlin, the game draws its inspiration from the famous legend of King Arthur. As its title suggests, the slot is centred around the famous wizard at his young age, with much less experience.

Once the game starts, players will be amazed by its beautifully-designed and vibrantly-coloured blue and purple reels. On them, they’ll find a wide variety of symbols, including the standard low-value playing cards, but also a crystal ball, dragons and more.

The crystal ball serves as both the Wild and the Scatter, which means it will not only substitute for all other symbols – helping players complete additional winning combinations – but it will also trigger the Free Spins round whenever three or more of them land anywhere on the grid. If more Scatters appear during the feature, they’ll add more spins to the player’s count.

During the Free Spins round, a special expanding symbol will be randomly chosen with only one goal: to help players score more wins! Up to 9 expanding symbols can be activated during this action-packed feature.

Developers at Play’n GO decided to add the gamble feature to this game, which means that players will be able to use it after any standard win. With a bit of luck, they can double or even quadruple their prizes. All they need to do is to pick the right colour or suit of a card.

Yet Another Exciting Release Joins the Lineup

Commenting on the launch of this game, Johan Tornqvist, Chief Executive Officer at Play’n GO said they had 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 also said 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.

Rise of Merlin will join other Play’n GO video slots, including the recently launched Contact and Game of Gladiators. 

As the name of the latter suggests, the new online slot will take players to a Roman Arena in a package that combines stunning graphics, top-notch animations and exciting playing experience.

Game of Gladiators boasts the Enter the Arena bonus feature, where players will pick a warrior to start a breath-taking battle. They can choose between Amazonia and Spartacus, and hope their warrior emerges victorious.
