Mermaid’s Tale is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Novomatic that can be played on all devices from 40p to £50 per spin. This mermaid inspired game is all about adjacent wilds that form giant wilds that take over 2 reels entirely for huge wins.

Set at the bottom of the ocean, this mermaid themed game looks great and has a soft feel to it – symbols include playing cards A, K, Q, J and 10 as well as ornate mirrors, jewellery boxes and clown fish. The mermaid is the highest value symbol giving you 2.5, 10 and 100 times your stake for 3, 4 and 5 on a payline.

With an upbeat soundtrack, this game is all about the giant pearl inside clam wild symbol – when 2 or more land adjacent to 1 another (i.e. next to each other), they will then form a giant wild symbol that takes over the entire reel it’s on.

For example – if the wild appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 next to each other, a giant wild that takes over those 3 reels will be formed. The wild can appear on all reels meaning you could fill the reels entirely of wilds! If you do so, you will take home 500 times your total stake for that spin.

Unfortunately, there’s no Free Games feature to play but the giant wilds should provide plenty of scope for big wins. It’s a medium to high variance game and the key to big wins is to get 3 or more adjacent wilds. If you like mermaids, I recommend Novomatic’s Jewels of the Sea as well as NetEnt’s Secrets of Atlantis.
