How to play Mermaid’s PearlClick here for a print friendly version
Novoline has created some great looking original video slots in its time at the top of the industry and one that is always sure to catch the eye is Mermaid’s Pearl. They are absolute masters of slot games with an underwater theme and this game represents even more evidence of that fact and the great graphics and animations ensure that whether you’re used to seeing this game at your local casino or online, you certainly can’t miss it! Looks are only one part of any game of course and they need to have the gameplay to match, but fortunately that is something else that Novoline will never let players down on. Here, we’ve got the game itself and all of the information you need on getting into the action, from how to play the machine to what to expect from the features and bonuses.
Mermaid’s Pearl looks a little different to some of the Novoline slots that you may well be used to, although that certainly does not make it any more complicated to get up and running on. Indeed, the developer has made a point of keeping things accessible and has provided a button for just about every option that you could hope for. A quick scan along the bottom of the machine demonstrates the choice of between one and nine win lines, with any combination of odd numbers available. Coin bets are also fully controllable and, as always, the total amount that you’ll be staking on each spin is dependent on the combination of lines and coins that you opt for. More coins make for bigger prizes and you can see what any winning combination is worth at any time simply by hitting the info button. You’ll see that the various themed symbols are worth substantially more than the more standard playing card icons, and at the very top of the tree is the mermaid herself. She acts as a wild card, meaning that she’ll fill in for all other symbols except the scatter, and lining up five of her across any win line will pay out an impressive 9,000 coins.
The scatter that the mermaid cannot fill in for is the treasure chest icon and it is a valuable symbol for two reasons. Firstly, it carries a prize amount of its own when you land two or more and you don’t even have to pay any attention to the win lines. That is the nature of scatter symbols as prizes count no matter where they appear. Two icons offer a handy cash boost, but you’ll mainly want to be on the lookout for three or more as landing that combination anywhere on the screen will launch the free spins round. There, you have fifteen spins available that will see your bankroll heading upwards and that’s not all. Every prize that you win during the round is based on your stake before the round commenced, but its value is multiplied by three before it comes back to you, making this easily one of the most valuable free spins rounds in the Novoline range.
While the Mermaid’s Pearl free spins are the definite highlight on this game, players that enjoy taking a risk will also want to get to grips with the gamble round. If you’re a fan of the developer then this will need absolutely no introduction as you can simply stake any prize that you win from the main game on a fifty-fifty shot at doubling it. Succeed and you can gamble once again and can keep on going until you either lose or collect.
