Mermaid Queen is a five reel online slot by RGT Gaming that features a progressive jackpot as well as a wild symbol and free spins. It has a big wagering margin from 0.1 all the way up to 5 for coin values, and all of the twenty five lines are optional. This will appeal to players of lower budgets as they can spin for as little as one cent or as much as 125 for all of the lines. Mermaid Queen has a number of special features, such as a wild symbol, a scatter symbol that launches free spins and a progressive jackpot.
Mythical Graphics and Theme
Mermaids are said to exist in the deepest of oceans. They are half fish and half beautiful lady. For some reason they seem to always fall in love with handsome sailors, or princes in the guise of sailors. Which is rather impractical since princes cant breath underwater and mermaids have no legs. Mermaid Queen portrays this age old myth, with bright graphics and detailed symbols. The pale blue reels sit in front of an underwater scene complete with pink coral and sea weed. Everything looks crisp and modern and rather serene with all the blue and wavy seaweed.
Not all of the symbols in Mermaid Queen are theme based. RGT have cheated a bit and used the highest symbols from a deck of poker cards, namely 9 through to Ace. These are done in a curly script and aren’t bad, just not very relevant to the theme. The rest of the symbols come straight from the mermaid’s underwater world.
We can find a pair of clown fish, a ship, a shell necklace and of course our probably doomed hunky sailor. Of course our flame haired mermaid appears too and is the games highest paying symbol as well as the wild icon. She will net you the standing jackpot of 7500 coins for five of her in a row on an active payline. Next up we have the ship with 2500 coins for five.
Mermaid Queen Free Spins and Jackpot
The games wild is the Mermaid Queen herself. She only appears on the first, third and fifth reels but when she does she replaces all other symbols in the game except for the scatter. The scatter is a purple clams shell with a pearl inside it. The Mermaid wild also launches the free spins round, granting you with ten free spins that carry a two times multiplier. During this round the scatter adds extra free spins, which also increases your multiplier by three.
The progressive jackpot is triggered randomly. It does not require any special features for you to win it. At the top of the screen you can see a scrolling view of what the current jackpot is worth across all of the Mermaid Queen games. When it is won, it restarts right back down to the start.
Stop Skill Element
This is an intriguing little feature that allows you to manually stop the reels. If you ay very close attention and possibly practice a lot, you have the chance to stop the reels at the point when all the best symbols are present. This is obviously not an easy thing to do however, or RGT slot machines would not have included it as a temptation.
