What I want to know is this: how does the Enchanted Mermaid keep those shells up? It’s a valid wardrobe question don’t you think?
Anyway, let’s get back to this NextGen game shall we (the people behind the original Wild West slot), because if you like Mermaids slots, you are spoilt for choice here at Wombat Casino. We’ve got the Mermaids Millions slot (probably the most famous?) along with her younger sister Ariana. We’ve got the Secrets of Atlantis slot. And if you get bored of that lot, you can always play with Flipper on Dolphin Gold and the Dolphin Reef slot! We’ve got lots of NextGen games here like the Owl Eyes slot machine for example.
And you’ve also got this little beauty- the Enchanted Mermaids slot- a 5 reel, 25 pay-line game in which you can play between 1 and 25 lines at anything up to £/€/$ 1 a line.
Your symbols on the Enchanted Mermaid slot are a clown fish (that’s where Nemo went!), a turtle, a Murex shell, a sea-horse and your standard playing card symbols. 5 fish pay 5000x your line bet on an activated pay-line.
The Enchanted Mermaid herself is the wild symbol and she has a little trick up her sleeve- she can expand across the reels. The final symbol that you need to know about is the oyster shell with a pearl in it (is that a Mikimoto? I bet you didn’t know the Wombat was a pearl expert).
Enchanted Mermaid Games Feature
Let’s look at the free spins bonus in more detail, shall we? Let’s face it, that’s where we all want to be as soon as possible.
You’ll need 3 or more scatter pearls anywhere on the reels to get in- there’s a nice little animation on the scatters with the oyster shells opening and closing. When you are in, you can choose between 20, 15 or 10 free games. Obvious choice right? Just go large- but hang on, we need to let you know about the multipliers. With 10 free games you can get up to a 10x multiplier. on the 15 free games option, this comes down to a maximum of x7 and the 20 free games come with a maximum of x4.
5 scatters will pay out 200x your total bet before the free spins start, by the way. Even if you get 2 scatters and just miss the free games, you’ll get a 2x consolation win. Keep trying!
In the Enchanted Mermaids slot, you can re-trigger the free spins if you get 3 more scatter pearls. Bonza! You’ll get the same number of free spins as you choose when you initially went into the free spins round (see above if you weren’t paying attention to that bit!)
Well, she looks pretty wild with that shell outfit (reminds us of Medusa in Stash of the Titans somehow- it must be the crazy hair), and it turns out that, yes, the Enchanted Mermaid is wild. She may appear on reels 2 and 4 and will stand in for all of the symbols (except for the scatter) to make up wins. She may also expand across all of the reels, which is obviously going to help you line up those wins.
The expanding wild is one of my favourite bits about the game- the mermaid jumps out of the reels and splashes into the sea at the bottom of the reels. You go girl!
You may also see some expanding mermaids in the free spins round.
After a win, press gamble if you still feeling like taking a punt. If you pick the correct colour, your win is doubled. If you pick the correct suit, your win is quadrupled. Just remember, if you pick incorrectly you lose! You can make up to 5 successive gambles.
This isn’t the most complex of slots, but we love the design and the Expanding Wilds when the Enchanted Mermaid does her diving thing- you can pick up some nice wins on that feature. I just wish this was available as a mobile slot game!
Wombat Score: 4/5
This game is no longer available at Wombat Casino. Sorry about that chaps. Why not try Enchanted Prince from Eyecon instead?
