NextGen Gaming’s Enchanted Mermaid Video Slot
Enchanted Mermaid has a magical, deep-sea adventure theme that is seen at all levels of its design. The reel casing looks as if it might be a lost treasure from a shipwreck, and sits on the ocean floor. Sea plants sit on either side, while light beams through from the above the water’s surface.
The icons on the reels also contribute to the Enchanted Mermaid world. The usual playing card symbols make up the lower-value symbols, in a fairytale font and seashore embellishments. The high-value symbols include a striped tropical fish, a seahorse, an orange shell and a turtle.
Dreamy background music completes the atmosphere, while land-based Slot machine sounds make gameplay more authentic. Celebratory sounds and animations punctuate each win and help make players feel special.
Playing Enchanted Mermaid
Up to 25 paylines can be activated in the game, and they are played out over 5 reels and 3 rows. The betting range is 0.01 to 50 per spin, so it should suit every player’s budget, and the Top Jackpot in the base game is an impressive 5000x the total stake.
For new players who don’t feel quite ready to play for real money, or for those who want to relax without financial considerations, the game can also be played for no deposit. For busy players who want to keep optimising their winnings, the AutoPlay feature can be activated. This keeps the reels turning automatically, so you can carry on with other things at the same time.
Enchanted Mermaid’s Bonus Features
The mermaid herself is the fitting Wild Symbol in the game, and can replace any other regular icon to create paying combinations. She can appear on Reels 2 and 4 only, but when she does she will expand to fill the entire feel and create even more potential for wins.
The Scatter Symbol, which takes the form of a pearl, is the only icon for which the mermaid can’t substitute. When 3 or more are seen at the same time anywhere on the reels, the free spins round is triggered. You’ll be allowed to use the Select a Play feature to choose 10, 15 or 20 free spins with a 10x, 7x or 4x multiplier respectively. As you spend more time playing, you’ll know which of these combinations works best for you. Once you’ve made your selection you’ll be able to start spinning, and the free spins can also be retriggered from within the round.
For a final flourish of entertainment, it’s possible to activate the Gamble feature after every winning round. If you choose to do this, you’ll have to predict the colour or suit of a randomly drawn card to double or quadruple your takings. You can do this up to 5 times in a row, but if you’re wrong you will forfeit everything. This sense of the unknown can be quite thrilling, and is the perfect way to end of a successful spin for many players. Of course, if you’re feeling nervous you can choose not to play the Gamble feature.
