We wombats can swim if we need to, but not as well as the creatures in the slot that we are about to introduce you to.
We are talking about the Mermaids Millions slot- a classic 5 reel game with 15 pay-lines that is available to play on mobiles and tablets as well as desktops and laptops (just head to our mobile casino).
The game has a bright and breezy design- it’s a real feel good slot that never fails to lift our mood, particularly if our luck is in! And oh boy, that Mermaid has a cheeky little chuckle!
You can select from 1 to 15 lines- the more lines you play, the more you’ll need to bet of course, but you’ll have more chance of lining up winning combinations if you play the maximum. The pay-lines are set at 15 on the mobile version.
You’ll then need to select the number of coins you want to play on each pay-line followed by your coin size. You can bet with penny coins, or you can bet with £/$/€1 coins, or denominations in between.
Betting 15 lines with five £/$/€1 coins will give you a total bet of £/$/€75.
Betting 1 line with one penny coin will give you a total bet of £/$/€0.01.
It’s a relaxing game to play (maybe it’s those underwater sounds), until you get into the free spis round that is- and then things start to hot up.
The graphics and sounds all give it that pleasing retro feel. They don’t make ’em like this anymore!
Free Spins Bonus
You will need 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols anywhere across the reels (they don’t need to land on an activated pay-line) to trigger 10 free spins. The scatter symbol is the Mermaids symbol. Scatter wins are multiplied by the total number of credits you bet and 2 scatters win you 2x your bet, 3 win 4x, 4 win 50x and the Blue Whale result of 5 scatters win you 400x your bet- and then you head in to the free spins.
So if you are betting £/$/€15 in total and 5 Mermaids drop in, you’ll win £/€/$ 6000. 3 would give you £/$/€60.
Once you trigger the free spins, all bets and lines played are the same as the game that set the bonus off in the first place, so it pays to bet all 15 lines.
And the good news is, free spins can be re-triggered from within the bonus round! This is one of our favourite features in a slot and it’s one of the reasons we like the Mermaids Millions slot so much.
The other good news about the free spins bonus, is that all wins are tripled when you are in the game
The King Neptune symbol is wild and will stand in for other symbols to make up winning combinations on active pay-lines (except for the scatters and Treasure Bonus- more on that below). He gives you a cheeky wink when he drops in, the saucy old goat.
If you get 5 Neptunes across an active pay-line, you will win 7500x that pay-line bet. And let’s say you were betting one £/$/€1 coin across 15 pay-lines, and 3 Clams line up on a pay-line. You would win £/$/€20 as 3 clams with pearls pays out at 20x. Got it?
The best thing to do, if you need to get the hang of the game, is to play the free demo on your desktop or mobile.
There’s one more bonus that we haven’t discussed, and that’s the Treasure Bonus (look out for the treasure chests). This is an additional pay-out that can be triggered in the base game and the free spins round.
If you get 3,4 or 5 treasure chests on an active pay-line, you’ll set off this bonus. It’s a pick and mix game where you select 3 items to reveal prizes behind. Plus, you’ll get paid out for landing them in the first place.
5 Treasure Bonus symbols on an activated pay-line will net you 2500x your initial pay-line bet which can be a great little earner in the bonus round.
Remember- you can also re-trigger free spins in this mermaid slot. All you need is 3 more scatter symbols.
The Mermaids Millions slot works well on phones and tablets, as well as laptops and desktops. So, wherever you are, you can hear that cheeky Mermaid´s chuckle!
There’s a slight difference on the mobile version- you cannot change the coin size or the number of pay-lines that you play. The game is fixed at fifteen pay-lines and you simply change the total bet that you would like to make for each spin- in some ways this is a more modern set-up. The designers must have figured that there wasn’t enough space to include this option- it would have probably ended up as being too fiddly and no-one likes to make a “fat finger bet”.
Like many of the classic Microgaming slots games, there is also an “Expert Mode” which reveals a few options to play Auto-Play. You can set the spin amount with either the 5x or 10x buttons, or hit “Auto Play” and the game will bring up a more detailed spin setting page where you can program in up to 500 spins, and when to stop (when you win more than a certain amount for example).
Other Mermaids Slots at Wombat Casino
We have quite a few undersea slots here at Wombat Casino. You could say we like to get our fur wet!
You can try our Enchanted Mermaid slot if you happen to like Mermaids. That’s a 25 pay-line game. We also have a game called the Ariana slot, which some players think of as an updated version of the game- it’s definitely worth a go.
Net Ent also have a game called Secrets of Atlantis which features a rather striking looking Mermaid in a designer bra and Colossal Symbol re-spins. We won’t go into the detail here (you can always read our review and try out the demo), but suffice to say Colossal symbols cover a lot of reels. This game has Nudge Reels too which is a neat addition.
Did we mention our Dolphin Gold slot? No? What about Dolphin Reef? Dolphin Quest? We must have said something about Octopays? As you can see, we like a watery slot, there are bubbles, bubbles everywhere…. We’re also working on an Irish themed underwater slot with an Egyptian flavour but that’s not ready yet.
We’d say that the mermaid on this slot (let’s call her Aquata) is one of the world’s most famous, but we would say that wouldn’t we? Who would be the other contenders for the World’s Best Mermaid? Well, I guess these slippery individuals are in the running…
The Little Mermaid
Hans Christian Anderson’s classic tale about the love-struck Mermaid who gives up everything to become human. You can see her statue in Copenhagen harbour. Brrrrrr, I bet she’s cold with no top on…..
There’s also Disney’s Little Mermaid, of course. It was inspired by the Hans Christian Anderson story, but they ended up giving it the Hollywood cutesy wutesy treatment.
Then there are the Sirens in Homer’s Odyssey whose beautiful singing lures sailors to their deaths by shipwreck on the rocks, the scallywags. So, next time time you are sailing around the Greek Islands, remember to put in your headphones and listen to some tunes!
Ever wondered what that green logo was on your Tall Cappuccino from Starbucks? Well, it’s a Mermaid. Slurp.
Dip Your Toe In
Have a quick look at this short video clip which shows the free spins and the Treasure Bonus.
That’s pretty much it! The Mermaids Millions slot is a straightforward game that has been enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of slots players in its lifetime. Try and get into the free spins round if you can for your 10 free spins, and once you are in there, put on your lucky pants and hope some Treasure Bonus symbols drop in, or even 3 more Mermaids scatters for 10 more spins.
It’s not a complicated game, but then that’s its appeal. Enjoy the game and please play responsibly!
Wombat Score: 4/5
A classic, this slot is mar-mar- marvellous, especially when you land those scatters, get into the free spins round and the treasure bonus symbols line up for you.
