Enter a dark, electrifying realm on the new slot from Boomerang Studios in collaboration with ReelPlay, powered by Relax Gaming. Lady Merlin Lightning Chase surges into casino lobbies with two styles of gameplay featuring wilds, wild multipliers, lightning coil instant prizes plus a hold and respin feature with a win potential of 3808x your bet. Add to this BOOM+ and bring free spins, BOOM+ Wilds and improved chances of aiming towards the max win of 25,600x your stake.
Lady Merlin Lightning Chase is played on a 3x4x3x4x3 layout with 432 ways to pay. Wins are awarded for matching three or more symbols from left to right in any position on adjacent reels. Available on desktop, tablet or mobile devices from 0.25 credits to 8 credits per spin. Supercharge your game by activating BOOM+, with bets starting at 0.40 credits. The volatility changes from 3 of 5 to 4 of 5 and the RTP increases from 95.69% to 95.95%.
The relatively young Boomerang Studios have shown promising innovation with Gems of Egypt Connecta Ways and the explosive visuals of Gargoyles Infinity Reels. Combining both those traits with BOOM+ and bright artwork, Lady Merlin Lightning Chase is a visual treat in true arcade-style. Bold and beautiful with flashes of lightning and flickers of arcane power surrounding symbols as they pop. An eerie soundtrack creates suspense similar to those mysterious moments in epic movies.
The pay symbols start at the low end with J, Q, K and A and award up to 2.4x for five of a kind. Next come the potions, starting with the purple vial and then increasing in size with value are the green, blue, yellow and red potion bottles, which pay up to 10x your bet for five of a kind. Lightning Coils flash to show instant prizes of x1 through to x10, then x20, x25 or 100x your stake. Note that pays are based on standard betting without the increased bet size of BOOM+
A steampunk style kill-switch represents the collect symbol and appears on reel 3 only. Lady Merlin, surrounded by a red arcane electric field, plays the wilds, appearing on reels 2 and 4. Wilds substitute for pay symbols only in the standard game or all symbols with BOOM+, which also enables the scatters of Lady Merlin and her mysteriously charged energy ball.
Lady Merlin Lightning Chase Slot Features
Lady Merlin Lightning Chase is best described as two games in one, using the same layout and game engine. In its standard form without BOOM+, the scatter symbols serve no purpose and the main feature is the Hold and Respin. Increasing your bet size by activating BOOM+ dramatically changes the game, so let’s look at the differences between the two.
In its basic format, Lady Merlin Lightning Chase has no use for the ever-present scatter symbols and they serve no purpose. Wilds substitute for all pay symbols but not for the collect or scatter symbols. Wild symbols stack and x4 should they land on reels 2 and 4 connecting a win. The game’s main feature without BOOM+ is the Hold and Respin.
Hold and Respin starts when six or more lightning coils appear on the reels, each one showing an instant prize value. In typical respin fashion, you start with 3 on the counter and any positions without lightning coils respin. Should more coils land, they will hold in position and reset the counter to 3 again. If the collect symbol appears on reel three, all prizes are awarded.
But that’s not all, in this version of Hold and Respin the round continues with another 3 respins following collect/ A round ends when no coils appear for three respins in a row, therefore, reducing the counter to zero. Lightning Coil Instant Prizes can be x1, x2, x3, x4, x5, x6, x7, x8, x9, x10, x20, x25 or 100x your stake. Wilds can also land in a respin and multiply the prizes by x2 for one and x4 for two.
Activating BOOM+ changes the volatility and RTP, enabling the scatter symbols and turning wilds into BOOM+ Wilds. These supercharged wilds now substitute for all symbols, including Collect and Scatter. Landing three or more scatters awards ten free spins and the Lady in charge may also grant ten free spins at random, on any spin.
During a free spins round, each wild or scatter increases a wild multiplier counter by x1. This multiplies any wins containing BOOM+ Wilds by its current value. The counter also holds and does not reset between spins with no ceiling. Each wild or scatter also grants an additional free spin, again with no limits. Free spins can also retrigger, and so can Hold and Respin, for mind-blowing combinations of multiplied wild wins, respins and retriggers.
Lady Merlin Lightning Chase has something for most tastes with two versions rolled into one slot. The classic version with ‘Hold and Respin’ feels very different to the game-changer that is BOOM+. Volatility changes from medium to medium-high and the hit frequency of hold and respin drops to afford the free spins. Lady Merlin Lightning Chase is charged full of action, especially with BOOM+ activated. BOOM+ could shock a combination of free spins and hold and respin prizes multiplied by wild wins with collects and retriggers for colossal win potential.
