Description and Review:
There seem to be a lot of Mermaid themed slot machines out there and, as the name suggests, Enchanted Mermaid from NextGen Gaming is another. This time it's a 25 payline game that is fun to play without being exceptionally exciting.
Aside from the Mermaid symbol, there are Seahorses, Pearls, Turtles and Fish. The music is also appropriately underwater-y (is that a word?). NextGen could have gone further with the theme and avoided the 9, 10, J, Q, K stuff, but no matter. And I do rather like the 'diving Mermaid' animation when you hit an Expanding Wild on reels 2 or 4.
The most unique feature on Enchanted Mermaid is what NextGen call their 'Select A Play' bonus round. If you get three scattered Pearl symbols, you get to choose one of three bonus rounds.
One has 10 free spins with a 10x multipliers, the second has 15 free spins with a 7x multiplier and the last one has 20 free spins with a 4x multiplier. Now, I played long enough to choose all of these several times in the hope that I could find the optimum choice. Frankly, I couldn't. But - intuitively - 15 free spins with a 7x multiplier looks the best option.
Overall, Enchanted Mermaid is a decent enough slots game. If you like really straightfoward slots with virtually no bells and whistles, it may be for you. For me, I would say there's nothing wrong with the game - it just isn't going to keep my interest long term.

The Mermaid is an expanding wild symbol that expands to cover all positions on that reel.

You choose between 10 free games (10x multiplier); 15 free games (7x multiplier) and 20 free games (4x multiplier).
The Mermaid expanding wild can appear during the free spins round and the round can be re-triggered.
