In addition to the brave ruler and his magic sword, Arthur's kingdom was also proud of a powerful wizard who, thanks to his alchemical skills, managed to gain possession of the greatest treasure of the Middle Ages.
It’s packed with Wilds, scatters, Respins, Expanding Symbols, and offers the top payout of 1250x the bet.
As is the case with the majority of online release these days, it could be spun on mobile devices as well.
Theme and Symbols
As its name suggests, the game uses Arthurian legend as its backbone. It’s about Merlin and his alchemical knowledge. Somehow, he managed to make/find the Philosopher’s Stone - a substance that can turn every single base metal into silver or gold.
The paytable consists of 4 low-paying elixir bottles (red, purple, red, and yellow one) that can pay up to 5x the bet for a combination of 5. Emeralds, gold bars, and Merlin himself are the premiums here offering up to 50x the bet for 5 of a kind.
Also, there’s a Wild symbol as well.
Betting Options and Other Functions
As stated above, Merlin and the Philosopher’s Stone uses a pretty simple grid setting made of 5 reels, 3 rows, and 10 fixed paylines, meaning that punters won’t be able to change the number of lines in a play.
The betting range is set between 0.1 and 10 coins per spin, while the theoretical return to player (RTP) sits at 95.95% which is slightly below the current average.
At the end of this technical segment, we should mention the top payout of 1.250x the bet.
As always, Wilds are there to replace all regular paying symbols and help punters form more winning combinations. The good news is that whenever you manage to land a Wild symbol, it will expand to fully cover the reel.
This is the moment when the games award a Respin and the triggering Wild will remain on the grid for the duration of the Respins feature.
As you can see, Merlin and the Philosopher’s Stone targets not so experienced players and you can see that by its narrow betting range, the low maximum payout, and the lack of the Free Spins feature. However, its solid graphics are paired with a highly interesting gameplay and we can recommend it to all newcomers in the world of online video slots.
