Lord Merlin and the Lady of the Lake Slot Free Play
How To Play It
The bets are a bit more complex in this case, compared with other Play n GO releases. You have the option to change the lines from 1 to 10, the coins from 1 to 5, and their denomination from $0.01 to $1. This allows the player to spend $0.10 to $50 for each round.
Inspired in part by the Book of Ra slot and all the clones which followed it, this game offers 5×3 reels and 10 lines. Mostly, you will be forming regular combinations, of 3+ symbols, and getting paid.
While playing during paid spins, you will find that the Lady of the Lake is the one acting as a wild. Landing on all five reels, it’s perfectly capable of forming its own combinations as well, and that’s something you want, since it can pay very well.
The scatter shows you an image of Excalibur, and you want this one to appear in order to trigger 8 free spins (3+ symbols needed). Prizes of up to 1,000x can be paid before the feature even starts.
Once it does start, Excalibur turns into a mixed wild/scatter, and here we see the Book-style feature that is the slot’s main strength. Wins of up to 10,000x the stake are paid if you get five of these symbols at the same time. You can use them as replacement symbols as well.
A special symbol is available during free spins, picked at random. It has the ability to expand and cover its reel.
With wild/scatter symbols appearing 2+ times, you get the Excalibur Spins (2 to 5 rounds). What this mode does differently, is the fact that it locks the expanding symbol for all those rounds.
This being one of the Play n GO slots where the volatility goes up, there will also be above average payouts to go after. 10,000x the stake is not a record for this developer, they have even bigger payouts to deliver in other slots, but it’s acceptable. RTP-wise, expect 96.20% to go back to the player, long-term.
Lord Merlin and the Lady of the Lake might be at least partially inspired by the Book category, but there are a lot of things that it does differently, so I appreciate the fact that it’s got something unique. The story is not based on Ancient Egypt for one, the top payouts are considerably higher, and the special features are different as well.
