Mermaid’s Pearl Review
An underwater adventure with a beautiful mermaid awaits you in this fishy free slots game from Novomatic, which is also available on mobile and tablet. Listen for the siren’s call and dive down into the deep to meet a cast of marine creatures and a host of treasures.
A red-haired mermaid with an iridescent green tail holds an enticing pearl aloft, urging you to have a spin. She is joined by a seahorse, a blue tang fish, a turtle, a lobster and a puffer fish on a deep-blue background covered in bubbles. The bubbles also appear on the game board in different colours, adding to the feeling of being under the ocean.
Gleaming treasure chests entice you to keep spinning in the hope of unveiling glinting gold coins, a sword and a gleaming rare pearl.
Although this game has a relatively simple design, the bright and colourful graphics give players an otherworldly experience. What is particularly surprising is the soundtrack - rather than being some cheesy underwater music, it uses old-school fruit machine sounds.
Mermaid’s Pearl is pretty standard in that it has 20 paylines covering five reels; however, its underwater kingdom has plenty to entertain. You can stake from one to 100 credits on each line, with a maximum bet of 900 credits.
Start winning when you spin five identical symbols along a pay line. Winning combinations begin on the left reel and run to the right without interruption.
Scatter symbols, represented by treasure chests, trigger a win regardless of where they appear on the reels. Three, four or five treasure chest symbols trigger 40, 50 or 60 free spins respectively, with the bet from the previous regular game used again. In the subsequent free game, three, four or five treasure chests trigger another 40, 50 or 60 free spins.
The wild symbol mermaid holds the key to winning combinations, as she substitutes for all symbols except treasure chests and also doubles your line win.
Just two mermaids in a payline will net you 10 coins, while three in a row award you 200 times your bet. There is a payout of 2,000 coins for four and you will be rewarded with the bumper jackpot of 10,000 times your bet if you are lucky enough to get five in a payline.
More experienced gamers will want to give the gamble button a try. This can help you to increase your winnings; however, you have to use the gamble button at the right time for your prize to be multiplied.
A lot more grown-up than Little Mermaid, this game takes you to the bottom of the ocean where a beautiful siren offers you the chance to uncover sunken treasure. There is no need for special skills or knowledge and it can be played by virtually anyone thanks to its simple control buttons at the bottom of the screen.
Good graphics and colourful animations add to the fun, as do the regular free spins. Don’t forget to check out our other free slots games.
