Mermaid Queen is a love story set under the night sky on the sea. The central character of the game is the mermaid herself, who acts as both the wild symbol and the trigger for the main bonus feature. Joining the beautiful red-headed mermaid is a muscle-bound male character holding a golden staff with a seashell atop. A clam scatter symbol also appears, alongside a huge sailing ship, a clown fish and a necklace made of pearls and shells.
This RealTime Gaming designed online gambling machine features many ways to win big, including free spins, added multipliers and a progressive jackpot. Here are the ocean-inspired highlights:
The all-important mermaid symbol appears on reels 1, 3 and 5 throughout the game. To activate the free spins feature you’ll need the mermaid to appear on all three of those reels. This will see the award of 10 free spins, with every win achieved during those spins doubled.
Any time the clam scatter symbol appears anywhere on the reels you’ll be awarded an additional spin, potentially lengthening the feature way past the original 10 spins. More good news is that any spin after the tenth will also see the multiplier increased to 3x. The free spins feature can be retriggered by landing those three mermaids again.
As well as triggering the free spins feature, the mermaid also acts as the wild. This gives an interesting scenario, as triggering the feature with 3 wilds might also give you a very big win (with wilds on reels 1, 3 and 5, the chances of a big win are high). The only symbol the mermaid won’t substitute for is the clam scatter.
The clam symbol appears on all five reels and acts as the games scatter symbol, meaning it will simply pay for the number of times it appears, irrespective of the position on the reels. Land 2, 3 or 4 clams anywhere and you’ll win 1x, 3x or 15x your total stake respectively. However, landing the maximum five scatters pays 200x your total stake, giving you a win of 4,000 coins if playing all the win-lines.
The male character in the game acts as the highest paying symbol, worth 7,500 coins for the maximum five in a row. He is joined by the ship, the clown fish and the necklace which pay 2,500, 1,000 and 500 coins respectively. The pay table is completed by the playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
Mermaid Queen features a 5×3 reel configuration and 20 win-lines that pay from left to right. Players do have the option of choosing any number between 1 and 20.
This sea-themed pokie also offers a progressive jackpot prize. This randomly awarded prize can be won at the conclusion of any spin – the higher the stake you play, the greater the chance you have of winning.
Mermaid Queen is the perfect setting for a romantic themed pokie. The stars are twinkling in the sky above the ocean, where pearls litter the sea.
The mermaid herself is the standout symbol on the reels, coming to life with animation any time you land a win with the wild – her red hair moving in the water as she swims in the sea. Those mermaid wins are also greeted by a romantic violin sound.
RealTime Gaming has designed a fun and original game in Mermaid Queen. It’s unusual to find a game where a single symbol is as dominant as the mermaid here – acting as both the wild and the feature trigger, the mermaid is the symbol you’ll want to see. Enter the free spins feature and you’ve got the triple bonus of added spins, increasing multipliers and retriggers. This is a feature you’ll want to play. With a progressive jackpot added into the mix, there is a lot to like about this poker machine. It’s sure to make a splash!
