Special Features

The first feature to highlight is that the game features a massive 720 ways to win. This means that it is possible to form winning combinations not only from left to right but also from right to left which creates plenty of potential to land some really big wins.

The Wild symbol is denoted by the beautiful looking mermaid and like most Wild symbols, it substitutes for all other symbols except for the Scatter symbol to help form winning combinations on the reels. The game features Trident Wilds which is a random feature and can trigger on any spin in the main game. Once activated, a random number of Wilds are added to reels 1 or 2 to further increase your chances of landing a nice payout.

The Scatter symbol is represented by a treasure chest. Land 5 of these symbols on the reels and you will trigger the Free Spins game. If you only manage to land 4 Scatter symbols then do not worry as the Divine Intervention feature might trigger and this will add a 5th Scatter to the reels to help initiate Free Spins.

When you trigger Free Spins, you will be taken to a new screen where you have to choose from 5 different treasure chests. Click on the chests to reveal how many Free Spins you have won. It is possible to win up to 25 Free Spins and a pleasing aspect of Free Spins is that you can win more Free Spins by landing 3 or more Scatter symbols while in this feature. Keep a close eye on the Diamond symbol while in Free Spins as you’ll notice that each one you land is collected on the reels. Every time 5 Diamond symbols are collected, one of the reels will be filled with a bunch of Wild symbols to really boost your chances of landing a huge win.

Theme and Graphics

The graphics are visually superb as the game is set deep inside a living breathing seabed with lots of colourful corals and a variety of fish swimming in all directions. Symbols consist of the Mermaid, a Treasure Chest, and a nice assortment of jewels and different fish such as squid and starfish. The animations are very impressive as symbols dart along the reels and dazzle brightly with an electrifying light blue frame whenever you land a win.

The music is orchestral and features lots of soft drum sounds and loud horns. It ties in nicely with the aquatic theme of the game.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 720 ways to win, a very good RTP of 96.50%, and an excellent jackpot of 7,200 coins.

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the bet when you spin the reels.

Our Verdict on Mermaid's Diamond

This slot is produced by Play’n GO and it is a solid addition to the many sea-based slots out there right now and one that really stands out from the rest. It is really easy to play and quite hard to stop once you start spinning those reels! There are not too many features in this game but it is satisfying to know that you can retrigger more Free Spins. You can also land some serious money in this slot when you turn some reels fully wild after collecting 5 Diamonds in Free Spins, not to mention the fact that you can land a whopping maximum payout of 5,000X on every single spin! I found this game to be of medium volatility so you will notice that wins are evenly balanced the more you play.
