Mermaids have swum into view in a few slot games so far. Maybe you have spotted one or two in games you have played in the past. We can reveal there are a few mermaids swimming into view in a new game, not to mention the chance to spot some pearls too. Shall we dive in and see what might be waiting for us beneath those waves?
None other than Real Time Gaming, often known simply as RTG, as those letters appear quite often next to their games in online casinos. They have an excellent pedigree when it comes to delivering entertaining and rewarding slot games, so we have high hopes this one will continue that trend.
Yes – all the modern releases from RTG include a demo or practice version. Just be sure you load that version before getting started. It is identical to the real slot in all other ways. You will just use demo credits rather than real cash to play.
Since mermaids are mentioned in the title, you can guess where we are headed in this game. This is a seafaring game that touches on fantasy too, since mermaids don’t exist. At least, we’ve never seen one… have you?
If we had to use just one word, we’d say stunning. There is a hint of sunlight filtering through the water at the top of the game screen. Beneath that, we can see the reels of the game followed by a mermaid sitting at the bottom of the sea. There are plants floating around in there too. You won’t have any difficulty playing the game either, thanks to the well-designed controls.
The game is a five-reel slot, yet it is not a standard five-reel slot. By this we mean it has five icons per reel, providing us with a large 5 x 5 format to appreciate. There is a lot going on in each spin. It doesn’t include a progressive jackpot, so we must simply hope for the best prize of all. According to the details we have, the top award maxes out at 12,500x your bet per way.
This game doesn’t include any paylines. That means it has an All Ways Pays format. With a 5 x 5 screen in action, we’ll save you from doing the math – there are 3,125 potential ways you could net a prize on each spin. Wow!
As with all games from RTG, you can expect a good array of options when considering how much you’d like to wager on this medium volatility game.
Yes, there is a paytable – simply click or tap the appropriate button on the game screen and you can read all about the rules there.
Yes – it is called the Shipwreck Pick Bonus Feature. During the game, you must collect pearls as they appear on the reels. This is done automatically. The Pearl Payout table tells you how much you could net in credits for between 15 and 25 pearls appearing in a spin.
Meanwhile, the Pearl Meter tells you how many pearls have been collected so far. Once you get to 300 Pearls, you will play the Shipwreck Pick Bonus. How well will you do during this game, we wonder?
Yes, and again it is down to the pearls to trigger this feature. The freebies here are delivered when the Pearl Meter hits the 600 mark. When this occurs, you will receive 10 free games in the Treasure Pearl Feature.
These are different to the usual base game because the reels will spin to reveal one of two things in each position – a blank space or a pearl. Therefore, you can only secure prizes relating to those pearls. Whenever a prize is found in a free game, the resulting payout will receive a random multiplier of between 1x and 5x. How many of your free games will produce a prize?
The return-to-player value for Mermaid’s Pearls is not yet known. It will no doubt be mentioned upon release, but past RTG slots have ranked very highly in this area. We have no reason to believe this will have a low RTP in comparison.
We think this game is going to meet with success, and we hope all the players who try it will have a good outcome too. With a bonus feature and some free spins to strive for, those pearls are handy to spot! We are going to rank this as an 8 out of 10 game.
No, and we may not do since this slot doesn’t have a progressive jackpot to look out for. However, there is still a chance someone might get a big prize thanks to that 12,500x maximum.
Yes, just make sure you load up the practice version rather than the one that requires real bets.
You can try it for size before switching to real money if you wish. Every casino will give instructions on how to do this, but you should be logged in and have deposited some funds to make it possible.
Yes, the game is released in all formats including native app and on mobile. Whether you have an Android device or an iOS device, we think you will be satisfied with the gameplay on offer in the Mermaid’s Pearls slot.
