The Little Mermaid is one of The Disney’s greatest franchises. As years have passed, its popularity have somewhat decreased, as the new titles appeared onscreen. But still, when we see a girl with red hair and a fish tail instead of legs, the music starts playing in our minds. The Little Mermaid is something from our childhood, something that calms us and reminds us of tranquil days that have long since passed. No wonder that Little Mermaid-themed games are still released from time to time, and Ocean Pearls is one of them.
However, this game differs from others by the fact that it is not some child-oriented arcade game, but instead it is a slot machine, where you can win real money. Furthermore, as Ocean Pearls is an online game, it demands no downloading, no registration and even no aqualung.
Gameplay and Prizes
It seems that the folk of the Underwater Kingdom have access to greatest treasures of sunken ships, as the Jackpot in Ocean Pearls is as much as 200,000 Euro. In order to win it, player has to spin one, two or all of three 3×1 reels. Selectable multiple reels is something that is seen not very often in slot machines, but it seems that NeoGames just loves making this kind of games.
As the game is mermaid-themed, most of the game symbols are somehow connected to the underwater world. An octopus, a jellyfish, a dolphin, a seashell, a seahorse, a pearl and even The Little Mermaid can be seen among them. However, somehow, Ocean Pearls finds place for more traditionalistic gambling symbols like “The Lucky Seven”, “The Cherry” and “The Bar”.
Total bet is calculated by multiplying base bet and a number of selected reels and thus can be varied in range from 25 eurocents up to 60 Euros. You can set the maximal available bet by hitting the “Max Bet” button. This game has the autoplay mode that spins the reels instead of you for given number of cycles. The game field background is a beautiful underwater picture with different corrals, mollusks and other deep-sea inhabitants on it.
The only background animation is a pair of fishes that swim through the screen. However, when the win occurs, pearls start shining and a lot of air bubbles appear around the winning reels.
Features and Bonuses
As Ocean Pearls tries to be as calm as it can, so you should spin the reels and believe in yourself.
