Secret of the Mermaid is a pokie game set at sea, based around a beautiful red-headed mermaid. Alongside the mermaid you’ll find symbols such as a dolphin, an ornate blue pot teeming with gold, a gold band featuring images of fish and a picturesque turquoise seashell. An outline image of a mermaid within a gold frame acts as the slot bonus symbol, activating the main bonus feature.
This Konami designed pokie has a set up that provides fast paced action all the way. Wild multipliers are the key to unlocking the riches of the deep. Here are the key reasons to give this low to medium variance pokie a spin:
The image of the mermaid in the gold frame acts as the scatter symbol. Land 3, 4 or 5 scatters and you’ll win immediate prizes of 4x, 10x and 600x – this 600x prize paying an incredible 27,000 coins if you land it.
As well as those cash wins, 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols will also activate the free spins bonus feature, with 8, 12 or 20 free games respectively. The wild symbols in the feature appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 in exactly the same way as the base game, although here you will also find the following multipliers attached:
The good news is that these wild wins can work together. For example, if you land a win with a 3x and a 4x wild included, the overall multiplier will be 12x. The perfect scenario sees you land the 3x, 4x and 5x multipliers all on one line, which pays an incredible 60x multiplier.
You can also retrigger the feature at any time. Land 3, 4 or 5 scatters again and you’ll add 8, 12 or 20 free games to your existing total. However, during the feature, you’ll gain an additional 5 free spins if you land just two scatters, making these retriggers more regular.
On the reels of Secret of the Mermaid you’ll find a large number of adjacent positions that are reserved for Action Stacked Symbols on every spin. Each of these positions will then be filled by one of the symbols from the game chosen at random.
This system leads to some very exciting spins, where much of the reels will feature this one selected symbol. The Action Stacked Symbols chosen can be any from the game apart from the wild symbol and the scatter.
Secret of the Mermaid is a five-reel pokie featuring a total of 30 win-lines. The cost of each spin is 45 credits (30 credits for the win-lines and an additional 15 credits for the features).
The red-headed mermaid is the highest paying symbol in the game, worth 200 coins for the maximum five in a row, closely followed by the dolphin at 150 coins. The gold band, the pot of gold and the seashell pay 100, 100 and 80 coins respectively. The low end of the pay table features playing card symbols while the wild (appearing on reels 2, 3 and 4) will substitute for all other symbols apart from the scatter.
This Konami designed pokie takes you to the bottom of the ocean were you’ll find an Atlantis-like world, where large Roman building with imposing pillars are found. The sea itself is a deep blue and you can see the sun shining in through from the top of the scene. The range of symbols, and especially the red-headed mermaid, bring a further splash of colour to the game.
Secret of the Mermaid is a fun and fast-paced game from Konami. The Action Stacked Symbols format is always popular, designed to make those big multi win-line pay outs likely. Enter the free spins feature and you’ll find those multipliers making a huge impact, especially when they work together.
