Discovering sunken underwater treasure is the goal in Mermaid’s Diamond, a 5 reel, 720 ways to win video slot powered by Play ’N Go. Helping you do just that are trident strikes that can turn 2 reels wild as well as a bonus round that can award infinite free spins. Collect diamond symbols and add wild reels into the mix. Stakes range from between 20p and £100 per spin.
As you’d expect given the title, the design here has a Greek mythology theme with a watery feel so blue dominates the colour palette. You’ll see an assortment of sea creatures spinning around the reels including shells, star fish and skates. More lucrative are the blue, green and red gemstones. Top of the payers is the white diamond which awards 10 times your total stake if you land 5 on adjacent reels. Winning combinations can be created from right to left as well as left to right.
Joining the standard symbols is the pink-haired mermaid – she is the wild and substitutes for everything bar the scatter. Hope to see special strikes from the trident which can magically turn standard symbols on 1 or 2 reels into wilds – this is the Trident Wilds feature.
The main extra on offer in Mermaid’s Diamond is a Free Spins feature which is triggered by landing 5 scatters on adjacent reels on the same spin. Don’t despair if you land 4 though – you could be in line for the randomly triggered Divine Intervention feature which magically adds a fifth chest and activates the feature.
Once the feature is live, you’ll get to pick from 5 treasure chests – 2 of them will offer 10 free spins. Another 2 will offer 15 free spins and 1 of them awarding the maximum 25 free spins. Look out for the diamond symbol on the reels – whenever these hit, they’re collected in a meter.
As soon as you’ve collected 5, 1 reel turns totally wild. Hope to see more treasure chests too – land 3, 4 or 5 of them on the same free spin and 3, 4 or 5 extra free spins are added to your tally. In fact, you can win an infinite number of additional free spins.
These waters are neither placid nor rough as far as volatility is concerned – the variance is in the medium range but can reward you to the tune of 5,000 times your stake on each spin. The visuals are perfectly fine and the free spins round is good. Mermaid’s Diamond is solid rather than spectacular – it doesn’t really dazzle but it doesn’t sink without trace. If you like Poseidon and the theme, Novomatic’s Lord of the Ocean is a must.
