Rise of Merlin is one of the newest games from Play'n Go software provider and I've been quite intrigued in this game since it was released. I've seen many other players winning big and it worked as a great inspiration to try my own luck with it.

Rise of Merlin slot is a 5 reel and 10 payline slot that has very similar technical aspects as the famous Book of Dead slot. And that was a great plus as I love Book of Dead. To be honest, when I saw the game for the first time it really reminded me of like Nordic, Ice version of Book of dead from the looks of it, as it has dragons and other creatures as main symbols, including an older man who kind of resembles Rich Wilde.

One thing I truly enjoy about this game is that the minimum bet size is only 10 cents which makes it the perfect slot to play when low-rolling. And that's exactly what I did in my last session. I had around 4 eur balance left and I thought- let's give Merlin a try. Less than 10 spins in I managed to trigger 3 crystal ball scatter symbols. The only thing that I slightly dislike is that you get 8 free spins with one expanding symbol, not 10, and the same as with Book of Dead, there's no multiplier. However, the goal in this game is to get more bonus retriggers- every time you retrigger the bonus, an additional symbol will become an expanding symbol. So in my last session, I got the bonus with one of the letter symbols as expanding ones and then a few free spins later I retriggered the feature and overall ended up with my biggest win on the game of over 180x bet. Taking into consideration that I loaded up the game with only a few euro balance, it was a great boost.

Overall I really enjoy Rise of Merlin and I think this is a game that will be popular for quite some time. It has simple yet great qualities- good free spins bonus round, affordable bets and great graphics. I think this is going to be one of my favorite Play n Go slots.

Playing Book of Dead for many years got tiresome and I decided to search for a new game that is similar looking and has expanded symbols when playing free spins and, what a surprise that Play'n GO released Rise of Merlin in 2019 and it looks really promising, the graphics are outstanding and the same goes to the melody they have running in the background its just a perfection, game has 5 reels and 10 paylines and RTP around 96% which is standard these days and there is no complaining about it.

There are not too many symbols in the game which is somewhere a good choice by Play'n GO to keep it simple to the point you will remember them easily and know exactly which one is good or bad, there is a classic card A,K,Q,J,10 followed by an Owl, White and Red dragon that looks extraordinary and a wizard Merlin both him and the crystal ball can pay up to 5000x your stake.
Even if you can get nice wins in base game it's all about those Free spins feature that was a life savior for me and I had amazing comeback playing it, with my last spin of 0.20cents I triggered the bonus with getting 3 scatters on the reel (Magic crystal ball) which is wild at the same time and it that awarded me with 8 free spins and gave me my special expanding symbol and what a surprise after couple of spins, I retriggered the free spins got another 8 free spins and received one more symbol which blew my mind thinking that there is gonna be some huge win having two powerful symbols which is exactly what happened and I got around 200x what better can you wish than having amazing comeback.

One of my favorite games this year for sure especially with the option to fast play and being able to quick spin which I tend to do most of the times, and lets not forget about that gamble option which lets you gamble your winning by choosing between Red/Black card that gives you a chance to double your winnings by 2x or choose suit color which is 4x your bet.


The only a little annoying thing is that every time I come to play a game and do 2-3 quick spins it offers me their "Fast Play" addon that you can activate yourself in "settings" so there is no need to have it every time I join to play.
