“Merlin and the Ice Queen Morgana” takes players on a new adventure set in the frozen deserts outside Camelot.
Press release – Game provider Play’n GO is adding a new game to the successful Merlin series: “Merlin and the Ice Queen Morgana”.
After the coronation of her brother King Arthur, Morgana flees Camelot. Determined to find his former apprentice, Merlin begins his quest only to find a desert of ice. The Ice Queen has claimed this land as her own. The locals fear her power. But who is this evil witch? She is none other than Merlin’s apprentice: Morgana.
Players will be able to follow the narrative through the clever use of changing backgrounds and visual effects. In this case, Merlin begins his adventure outside the Ice Queen’s palace and heads inside to confront Morgana. The paylines are highlighted by Merlin’s magic staff and Morgana casting an icy spell that freezes the background with snow.
Merlin’s staff serves as a wild scatter as he casts his spells. Morgana also plays a pivotal role as a special wild that can place one, two or more fully stacked symbols. Once fully stacked, this symbol will activate the multiplier.
Head of Games Charlotte Miliziano said, “Players love the Merlin series, we have already explored his relationship with the Lady of the Lake and wanted to delve into one of his more turbulent relationships. A bit darker than its predecessor, Merlin and the Ice Queen Morgana embody the battle between good and evil.”
He added: “There’s another reason we enjoy working on this kind of series. As 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 have played our existing games.”
