Mermaid’s Pearl is a cute slot with colourful background and sea characters as symbols. The slot is laid out as a traditional fruit machine with the lower and upper halves of the screen and the buttons to press to begin your spins and place your bets. The symbols here include palm trees, orange fish, yellow star fish, pink bar signs and a pearl, which acts as wild.
The mermaid herself sits to the right of the paytable in the top half of the screen and you can see all the payouts in the table to her left. Press spin to begin the game and you need to match 3 symbols on a payline to enjoy a payout. Plus, playing the highest coin value will increase your wins when they do come along with up to 1,000 credits available.
Place Your Bets
Mermaid’s Pearl has 3 reels with 5 paylines to choose from. You can play as many or as few as you like but the more paylines in action each spin, the higher your winning chances will be. You can choose your bet by clicking in the red square symbol to the left of the reels. Press ‘bet one’ to choose the number of paylines in play each spin. You can also choose to use the ‘max bet’ feature, which places the maximum bet straight away. The minimum total bet works out at 1.00, while the maximum is 5.00.
Swimming Towards Big Wins
The paytable in the top half of the screen will reveal your potential rewards. The best symbol is the pearl, which is also the wild symbol and has the ability to substitute. This pearl symbol can also award 1,000 credits for hitting 3 matching symbols on the reels while playing at max coin value. The second-highest payout is 750 credits, which is won by hitting 3 pearls on an active payline without max coin value.
Next along the paytable is the orange fish, which can award up to 100 credits for 3 matches, while the gold star awards up to 50 credits and the palm tree awards up to 25 credits for 3 matches. If you hit 3 pink bar signs you can get 20 credits while other payouts award from 3 credits to 10 credits.
Mermaid’s Pearl has many fans due to its colourful style and water theme. If you want to try another slot game with a similar aquatic style, check out Dolphin’s Pearl and Ocean Life. These slots both have an underwater theme with plenty of winning opportunities while the cartoon graphics are cute and will remind you of Finding Nemo or the Little Mermaid!
Making a Splash
Mermaid’s Pearl gives players the hugely popular underwater theme, complete with cartoon mermaid character, while still managing to offer a traditional fruit machine game. There are only 5 paylines and 3 reels to give a traditional set up, while instead of fruits you can play with sea creatures. Although this is a classic old school styled game you can still enjoy a wild symbol for substitutions, which is a modern touch. All in all Mermaid’s Pearl is a great addition to the Betsoft slots catalogue.
