Developer Play’n GO has released a chilling new video slot titled Merlin And The Ice Queen Morgana.
The brand new game is based on Arthurian legend. It follows Merlin, who sets out in search of his former apprentice Morgana after she fled Camelot following King Arthur’s coronation, and has taken over a frozen wasteland as the dangerous Ice Queen.
Merlin And The Ice Queen Morgana uses a 5×3 layout with 10 paylines, and it has an RTP of 94.2% with high variance, which means you’re more likely to make infrequent large wins over frequent small ones.
The game requires a bet of between £0.01 and £100, and symbols in the game include Morgana, Merlin himself, a book of spells, a cauldron, a ring, and the traditional A, K, Q, J, and 10 symbols too.
Merlin And The Ice Queen Morgana comes with several notable special features. For example, the game has a Scatter Wild symbol that acts as both a Wild symbol and a Scatter. The symbol substitutes for all symbols except Expanding symbols. Meanwhile, landing three or more Scatter symbols triggers the Free Spins mode with 10 spins.
During the feature, a special Expanding symbol is randomly chosen to help you make more wins. The symbol expands if enough Expanding symbols are on the reels to create a winning combination. What’s more, landing three or more Scatter symbols during the feature re-triggers 10 spins.
Finally, landing a fully stacked Morgana on the reels activates a random multiplier of between 2x and 8x. During the Free Spins mode, a fully stacked Morgana symbol can substitute for one special Expanding symbol if not enough of them have landed on the reels.
Charlotte Miliziano, the Head of Games, said in a statement: “Players love the Merlin series, we have already explored his relationship with the Lady of the Lake and wanted to dive deeper into one of his more turbulent relationships. A little darker than its predecessor, Merlin And The Ice Queen Morgana embody the battle between good and evil.
“There’s another reason we enjoy working on these kinds of series. Like with Merlin, King Arthur and the gods of Norse mythology, new players already have some knowledge of these characters. They can fully immerse themselves in the narrative regardless of whether they’ve played our existing games.”
Merlin And The Ice Queen Morgana is the third slot in the Merlin series, following the release of Merlin And The Lady Of The Lake and Rise Of Merlin. The launch of the game also follows the release of other Play’n GO slots like Rich Wilde And The Wandering City and The Last Sundown.
