Come underneath the waves with Novomatic to a world filled with colourful fish, beautiful mermaids and lots of wins! This 5-reel, 20-payline slot game has an RTP of over 92%, making it one of the lowest-paying slot games from Novomatic but there’s plenty to love about this slot game in spite of this! First of all, the design is lovely and bright! The deep blue background is like the ocean and the logo and the reels are all covered in bubbles which are slowly rising up to the surface. The sounds and the music in this game are very standard for Novomatic, as are the autoplay and gamble features. You can win Free Games in Mermaids Pearl and the numbers of these you can get are huge, higher than any other Novomatic slot game, hands down! Mermaids Pearl Mobile is just like the desktop version of the game and wins can come with super games and mega games as well as cash. This isn’t a game for total beginners but anyone who knows a little bit about slots will be able to play and enjoy this game! It’s especially perfect for players who enjoy spinning the reels of other mobile slot games from this developer, like Novomatic’s Dolphin Pearl Mobile, Lovely Mermaid Mobile and Summer Queen Mobile.
The symbols of Mermaid’s Pearl Mobile are a lovely mix of classic slot symbols and themed symbols. Starting with the classic slot symbols, there are the card values from 9 to Ace. These are the least-paying symbols and the 9 pays from two or more matches and the rest pay from three or more matches. Then, the themed-symbols pay more and there are (in ascending order of payout value) the seahorse and the schooling bannerfish, the pufferfish and then the lobster and the turtle. The lobster and the turtle pay from two matches and the other oceanic symbols pay from two or more matches. There are twenty paylines in total and you can choose how many you want to have active. The matching symbols will need to fall on an active payline and on adjacent reels from the far-left towards the right in order to pay out. The paytable displays payout values that are correct for your current bet. Your bet can be easily adjusted from the minimum of 0.01 per line to 2.00 per line. Wins are paid in cash as well as super games or mega games. Super games come with smaller bets and mega games come with higher bets. These are wheels which have segments around them that either display a win amount (win amounts are 10x more in mega games than super games) or a number of additional games or ‘No Win’ – you’ll spin the wheel to see where the needle falls. In the normal game, these are played after a win but in the Free Games, they are accumulated and they are all played together at the end.
Under the water in Mermaid’s Pearl, there are two symbols which can help make miracles happen. The first is the intoxicating Mermaid herself, who is the Wild symbol. She and her pearl can substitute for all of the other symbols on the reels and when this happens, the win will double! She also pays from two or more matches like any other symbol, making her a fantastic symbol to get! The one symbol that the Mermaid does not have the power to substitute for is the Scatter symbol which is the sunken treasure chest. This symbol can pay whenever at least two land on the reels, wherever they happen to land, and when at least three land you’ll get a load of Free Games on top of a payout! 3 Scatters give you 40 Free Games, 4 Scatters give you 50 Free Games and 5 Scatters give you 60 Free Games. These most definitely make up for the low payout percentage as they can re-trigger very easily, making them a really great and lucrative feature. The super or mega games that you’ll win during the Free Games will be played at the end altogether. You can gamble your wins from super or mega games like you can with other wins but they pay out so much that you won’t even need to risk them using the 50/50 chance card gamble game.
