Rules of the Mermaid’s Gold Slot
The Mermaid’s Gold video slot has the following structure:
- 5 reels with 3 vertical cells;
- 10 adjustable paylines.
To manage the size of the line bet, use the Bet key. It allows you to select a value from 0.02 to 0.50 credits. This amount gets automatically multiplied by the selected number of active lines. This parameter is controlled by the Lines button. With its help, a gambler can activate from 1 to 10 lines. Starting the reels in the manual mode occurs either after clicking on the Start button or after pressing the space bar on the keyboard. You can switch the game to the automatic control mode by pressing the Auto Start button.
The combinations in the Mermaid’s Gold slot that are paid include from 2 to 5 identical icons appearing on the active line. If this type of a combination appears during the manual mode of starting the reels, the Gamble button becomes active. By pressing the button, a gambler will be transferred to the risk-game mode. In this game, you can either use the entire last winning as a bet or just a half of it. If a player gets access to free spins, he can go into the risk game only after the last one of them and can manage the total winnings for the entire round.

- In the case of an error, the bet amount will be burned;
- If a player makes the right choice, he can continue the risk game;
