Mermaid Queen is a 5-reel, 20-line video slot from RTG with wild substitutes, scatter wins, a free spins feature and a progressive jackpot. You can play Mermaid Queen at US-friendly RTG casinos Cherry Red Casino and Lucky Red Casino.
Mermaid Queen has an underwater fantasy theme, mostly involving mermaids. Symbols in the game include the mermaid wild symbol, scattered clam symbol, the merman, a ship, a fish, a pearl necklace with seashells attached and A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 symbols. The art in the game is excellent, with many of the game’s symbols being animated. Here is what Mermaid Queen looks like, courtesy of Cherry Red Casino:

The mermaid symbol is the Mermaid Queen progressive slot’s wild symbol. It only appears on the first, third and fifth reels. It will substitute for all symbols in the game except for the scatter symbol. The scatter symbol is the clam. You only need two clam symbols anywhere on the reels for it to payout. Scatter wins are multiplied by the total bet. All symbols pay left to right only except for the scattered clam symbol, which pays any.
If the mermaid symbol appears on the first, third and fifth reels, you will trigger the Mermaid Queen slot machine’s free games feature. In the feature, the background design of the slot will change and and music will play. You will win 10 free spins and a 2X multiplier. The 2X multiplier means all of your winnings during the feature will be doubled. You will win an additional free spin for every scattered clam symbol that appears during the feature. Any additional free spins will have a 3X multiplier, meaning those wins will be tripled. The free spins feature can be re-triggered. Free spins are played at the paylines and bet of the triggering game.
The top fixed jackpot on the Mermaid Queen video slot is the man (who we will assume is a merman). Five of these symbols on an active payline will win you 7500X your line bet. The next highest jackpot is the ship at 2500X. Here is a screenshot of Mermaid Queen’s paytable:
As commonly seen in Realtime Gaming video slots, Mermaid Queen has a skill stop feature. When you spin the reels, you can hit the stop button at anytime and the remaining reels with come to a complete stop. You cannot use this feature on Turbo Mode.
From the Options menu or by hitting the “Autoplay” button, you can use Mermaid Queen’s autoplay mode. Options in the autoplay mode are: number of spins (from 5 to 1000), to stop when the jackpot is won, to stop if a win exceeds or equals any value you input, to stop on any win you receive, to stop if your balance increases by any value you input, to stop if your balance decreases by any value you input or to stop once the feature is triggered.
