With an impressive history in the trade and a top-notch range of land-based games in their repertoire, this software developer is not to be overlooked. While Merkur slots may not be at the very cutting edge of design and graphics, they do not hold back when it comes to variety.
Merkur Gamings may not be the largest game developer you know, but it seems their slot Magic Monk Rasputin is doing pretty well! This 2015 slot offers 5 winning lines, three rows and three columns of symbols. The theme features the old Russian monk Rasputin in a design with elements from the old Russian empire. You spin the reels to collect symbols like precious eggs, golden crowns and expensive rings. There are no wilds or scatter symbols in this game and it also does not come with a jackpot. But there are other ways this game can give you pretty ice wins. The RTP of Magic Monk Rasputin is 96,2%.
Slot design and gameplay
The whole design of this slot would fit any classic brick and mortar casino. It has a bit of a dark feel to it mainly because of the dark portrait image of Rasputin himself. The game comes with only three symbols in different variations: eggs, rings and crowns. All three symbols have ladders you have to climb in order to maximize your winnings on each type of symbol. You can collect your winnings before reaching the top if you want to play it safe, but then the ladder of that symbol resets. If you make it to the top of a ladder, the wins are bigger (crowns are best) but the longer you wait, the bigger the chance that Rasputin stops by and resets all three ladders.
You also have the option to gamble your winnings by picking card colors or symbols, but the base game with the ladders is definitely more exciting.
What kind of verdict do we give this awkward and dark game? Well, we have to admit it is fun to play although the gameplay is pretty classic and straightforward, but your resentment for Rasputin will grow each time he stares you in the face, we promise you that.
