The “Mermaids Millions” video slot theme is significantly more abundant in any given casino than the amount of crab legs gone through in a single night at the seafood buffet on the floor above it.
The under-the-sea-motif creates a mellow visual exterior to a game that still houses the potential to rob you blind…or to supply a sunken treasure chest, if not coins. As you dive into your pocket for cash, the five-reel, fifteen-payline format may just help you convert 75 coins to 35,000 (even more achievable by way of a free spin and an inherent 3X multiplier).
Other helpful features, aside from a scatter feature, allow further means to increase the payload, such as a bonus round where three or more like treasure symbols win a bonus depending on how much spare coinage is placed in the three chests prior (from 26 to 2,500). The tiles, like similarly-styled prog-slot games, are an amalgam of poker royalties and thematic icons that require matching (in this case little mermaids a la Arielle, clam shells, Poseidon, seahorses, etc.), plus a crossfire which pulls the player’s attention in two directions and likely confuses purposefully in order to make losing that much more unacceptable.
