Mermaid’s Diamond features five reels and 720 ways to win powered by Play ‘N Go that is themed on a search for treasure underwater with expanding wilds, free spins and divine intervention by the sea god Poseidon in this Greek mythology-themed video slot.
Mermaid’s Diamond is located in an elegant underwater backdrop on an unusual hexagonal reel set with 720 ways to win that offers payouts in both directions – players can generate wins by getting nearby icons from left to right and right to left starting on the outermost reels (reels one or five).
Playing Mermaid’s Diamond
Visually, players are taken to the depths of the sea – it has an epic feel to it with a god-like and orchestral soundtrack. Icons on the reels include four underwater creatures and four precious shiny gems. The Diamond is the most worthy, giving players ten times their bet stake for landing five.
Players also have the beautiful mermaid who is the ’game’s wild icon – she replaces for all other symbols except the scatter. The wild is crucial as it can randomly activate the Trident Wilds round in the original game. Wilds are then added on the first or second reels whilst the reels spin.
There is also a Divine Intervention round which can be triggered on a non-winning spin when four scatters appear on the reels – once activated, the elusive 5th scatter icon seems to enable the Free Spins feature. The other ways of activating the Free Spins round is by getting five treasure chest scatter symbols anywhere on the reels.
Players must choose one of the five treasure chests to reveal ten, fifteen or twenty-five free spins. If players get three, four or five scatters during a free spin, and they will win ten, fifteen or twenty-five more free spins. Players should keep an eye out for the sparkling diamond symbol.
When players collect five of them, they will activate the Trident Wilds round with one reel becoming packed with wild icons. If players land four diamonds and the Free Spins round ends, these will be saved for the next time a player enters the function. Players will get a wild reel for that free spin only.
Mermaid’s Diamond is visually amazing, a superb game from Play ‘N Go that is all about the wild reels in the Free Spins round – get a few here, and players could well receive god-like wins.
