Merlin, the wizard from the legend of King Arthur, has been ingrained in our minds since time immemorial. Play'n GO has designed Merlin's Grimoire, an online slot that uses the ever-popular symbol feature from the 'book of' genre, then adds splitting symbols and a paying system to present something outside the normal run of things.
What's not unusual, is that Play'n GO has crafted a lush, overgrown world to host the Merlin-inspired experience. The game uses a 5-reel, 3-row matrix set in stone, and covered in ivy as the central play area, while about it lies a thick forest full of trees, mushrooms,etc. It's not a game which flaunts a lot of magical effects, so if you were hoping Merlin would go all wizard-mode and shoot bolts of lightning from a wand, prepare to be let down. One reason why is that Merlin's Grimoire is something of a prequel, telling the story of a young Merlin taking a journey to become the most powerful wizard in the world. The visual effects are excellent and are helped by the fact that this is far from being Play'n GO's first Merlin slot.
The game runs on a highly volatile math model, spitting out a return to player value of 96.0% at the upper end. It accepts stakes of 10 p/c to 100 per spin on any device and packs some big win numbers for Grimoire seekers to play for.
To get a win, you'll need to land at least 2 high pays or 3 low pays from the left side of the grid in adjacent reels. At the default grid size, this means 243 ways to win, but when splitting symbols start to hit, ways can quickly skyrocket, maxing out at 7776 ways. For the low pays, players get six esoteric looking tokens, worth 0.8-1x the bet for five of a kind, and scrolls, potion bottles, gems, and Merlins as the highs, worth 2.5-4x the bet for five of a kind. The only other symbol is the Grimoire itself, covered next.
