The Merlin and the Ice Queen Morgana slot is a 5×3-reel video slot game with up to 10 paylines, two wild symbols, and free spins with expanding scatter pay symbols.
Play’n GO has been following the life of our favourite mythical magician, from the Rise of Merlin slot that saw him in his youth, to the Lady of the Lake review where he is knee-deep in Arthurian lore.
But things have taken a darker turn in this Merlin and the Ice Queen Morgana mobile slot, as we chase down his old nemesis to her castle up in her cold snowy castle.
It’s as beautiful as we’ve ever seen, and it still gives you 10 paylines with the mechanics you loved from the two original. Only now Morgana gets as much attention as the grizzled wizard.
In other words, the Merlin and the Ice Queen Morgana slot is a 10 payline game with the wild that also acts like a scatter. The scatter triggers 10 free spins where one symbol is chosen to act as an expanding scatter pay.
That means the expanding symbol will cover the reel and pay even if the symbols are not sitting next to each other, left to right. If you get Merlin on all 5 reels, and they all expand, you’ll win 5,000x your bet.
But that’s not the top win, which tells you that there’s something a little bit magical about this casino game.
The way you get the top wins of this Merlin and the Ice Queen Morgana slot game is not with Merlin, but with Morgana.
She’s the second wild symbol on the reels, and when she shows up, she expands to cover the reels. But she also gives you a random multiplier ranging from 2x to 8x on all your wins.
In the base game, it simply helps create slightly bigger wins as you wait for the free spins – not unlike the Legacy of Dead slot.
But in the free spins, these can change your view of this Merlin and the Ice Queen Morgana slot and make it a new favourite.
Because if you get an expanding scatter pay and an expanding wild with an 8x multiplier, you’ll get somewhere close to that 20,000x your bet max win.

Scatter Wild: The scatter symbol is both the scatter and the wild symbol. It can substitute for all symbols to create a win on this 10 payline slot machine, but 3 or more will also trigger the free spins.
It does not replace the expanding wild symbol.
Morgana Wild: When Morgana appears, if she can create a win, she will expand on the reel as a wild. Fully stacked Morgana activates x2, x3, x5 or x8 multiplier randomly and appears in both the base game and free spins.
Free Spins: 3 or more scatters will trigger 10 free spins. 3 or more scatters during the free spins will add an additional 10 free spins to your bonus.
Before the bonus game begins, one random paytable symbol will be chosen to act as an expanding scatter pay. These will expand, cover the reel, and pay like a scatter - so pays on all reels regardless of where the symbols land.
Gamble Feature: After any win, you can gamble your prize by choosing the next colour or suit of a face-down card. If you guess correctly you will either double or quadruple your prize, or you'll lose your original win.
We liked Morgana as much as we did Merlin, which is strange because we are usually 'Book of' purists. We don't need more than what we get in the Book of Ra Deluxe slot.
And then they gave us expanding wilds and up to 8x multiplier, with an even bigger top win AND slightly lower volatility.
Meaning the chance to win is better, with a chance to win even bigger than the original.
We suspect this Merlin and the Ice Queen Morgana slot online will get lost in the mountain of new Play'n GO games, but if you do come across it, you should probably play.
