Based on the legend of a beautiful mermaid whose song drives sailors mad and lures them to their death, Novomatic’s Sea Sirens is an online slot with five reels, 10 paylines, and bonus features.
The in-play features include multiplier Wilds, Scatters, and free spins. There are also optional features that can be used as part of the gameplay, those being Autoplay and Gamble features.
As the game is a video slot, it has fairly complex graphics and animations. Its soundtrack has themed sound effects in addition to background music.
On the Reels of Sea Sirens
There are three different types of reel symbols in Sea Sirens online casino slot. Bonus symbols that can pay out the highest, high value symbols that pay out high, and low value symbols that pay out lower.
The bonus and high value symbols are themed, and appear as scenes or various items. They include a fish-tailed siren on a rock at the water’s edge, a dolphin swimming near the seabed, a pearl in a clam shell on a beach, a ship sailing into the sunset, a gold coin, a crown, and an anchor.
The low value symbols are Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, and nine in different colours.
Sea Sirens Slot Gameplay Explored
Sea Sirens online slot opens with an introductory clip of sirens cavorting around sunken treasure, no doubt retrieved from the ships they lured onto the rocks. When the main screen opens, paylines are selected using the Lines Plus and Minus buttons.
When paylines have been selected, the number of credits to be bet per line are set using the Bet Line Plus and Minus buttons. The reels are spun using the Start button.
The Sea Sirens symbols then spin on the reels, which come to a stop, one by one. Successful combinations on active paylines are then paid into the Winnings balance.
The Autoplay feature is begun using the Autoplay button. If it is selected, the game plays itself continuously until stop conditions are met, or until it is stopped manually.
Sea Sirens Wild and Scatter Symbols
The two slot bonus symbols of Sea Sirens are the siren Wild and the dolphin Scatter. Five of the Wilds on a payline pay out 36 000 coins, and five Scatters anywhere on the reels pay out 20 000 coins.
The Wild symbol substitutes for all reel symbols except the Scatter. It can help the other symbols combine successfully to pay out. As a multiplier Wild, it doubles the payouts it helps other symbols create, but it does not double its own payouts.
When three, four, or five Scatters land in any position on the reels, they trigger a free spins round as well as pay out. 15 spins are played in the round, which features a 3x multiplier. This means any winnings made in the round are tripled.
Sea Sirens Gamble Feature
The Sea Sirens optional Gamble feature can only be used to gamble winnings when successful combinations land on the reels. It is only when that button becomes active on the interface.
The feature is played by guessing the colour of playing cards drawn from a virtual deck. If the answer proves correct when the card is flipped over, winnings will be doubled. The game may be played a few times in a row, following correct answers.
An incorrect answer results in the loss of the total winnings, and the online slot reverts to the base game.
