Yggdrasil and Boomerang Games flex their fantasy flair in Lady Merlin

Medieval-themed smash features the electrifying Lightning Chase mechanic.

Yggdrasil and Boomerang Games have announced details of their new title Lady Merlin, created with YG Masters partner ReelPlay, in which the protagonist attempts to conjure the forces of electricity from the very air she breathes, turning power into prizes. 

The five-reel, 432-ways slot has a fantasy medieval theme, beautiful accompanying soundtrack and features the Lightning Chase mechanic, which sees coils randomly land on the reels with a cash value. When the collect symbol lands, all prizes are immediately awarded. Score six or more coils to play the respins feature.

The dashing titular character acts as a wild when a wild multiplier is also in play, starting at 2x in the base game. Utilising Boomerang’s Boom+ ante bet extends the suite of features. Three or more scatter symbols, represented by Lady Merlin gazing into her orb, will trigger the free spins mode. During the round, whenever a wild or scatter lands on the reels, the wild multiplier and free spins counters will increase by 1x for extended bonus game play and huge win potential.

A total max win of 25,600 x bet is available for the luckiest of players. 

Lady Merlin is the newest addition to the YG Masters portfolio by Boomerang Games, following their mid-year hit Wild Joker Stacks. The boutique studio continues to work with fellow initiative member ReelPlay to develop fresh and replayable content.

The game is powered by GATI, with Yggdrasil’s state-of-the-art technology enabling partners to employ the preconfigured, regulation-ready, standardised development toolkit to produce consistently cutting-edge content followed by rapid distribution.

Discussing the new release, Stuart McCarthy, head of partner programmes at Yggdrasil, said: “Following Boomerang’s recent classic-themed Joker slot, Lady Merlin is an exciting, feature-filled fantasy hit, showcasing the studio’s dynamic and creative remit.

“With two types of bonus rounds, huge multiplier potential and an innovative art style, there’s lots to look forward to in our latest YG Masters release.”

David Johnson, CEO at ReelPlay, said: “Lady Merlin is a fast and fun, multilayered fantasy from ReelPlay’s partner Boomerang Games. We continue to facilitate and curate the industry’s sharpest content as part of the YG Masters programme and we’re excited for players to enjoy another thrilling release.”
