The latest slot from aspiring Estonian game studio All41Studios, released by slot machine mogul Microgaming, Pearl Catcher cashes in on the hype surrounding Disney’s remake of one of its classics, the Little Mermaid.
In this mermaid-themed slot machine, players are guided by a beautiful siren who bears a very close resemblance to the beloved Ariel as they attempt to win their share of the treasure that is hidden beneath the waves. Featuring a beautiful and relaxing oceanic color palette and symbols reminiscent of the renowned undersea adventure Great Blue from Playtech, Pearl Catcher is a visually stunning slot machine whose gorgeous aesthetic will keep players hooked for hours.
Playful turtles, fanciful fishes, crabby crustaceans, and the star of the seafloor make up the high-end symbols, with the smiling turtle offering the greatest prizes. The low-end symbols come in the form of the letters A, K, Q, and J, which come across as slightly uninspired in such an otherwise beautiful slot. The wild takes the form of the iconic head of King Triton’s trident, while the scatter is depicted with a Free Spins symbol.
Featuring the typical 5x3 playfield, which is quickly becoming an industry favorite, Pearl Catcher offers players 243 ways to win using the new Rolling Reels mechanic. There are no paylines on this slot, as players will be looking to secure matching symbols by spinning the reels to victory with three or more adjacent symbols earning a win. Every time a player secures a win, those symbols will be removed from the reels, allowing more symbols to drop into the spaces they left behind. This opens up players to more chances to win with a single spin. Players can bet from as little as 0.20$ up to 20$, making the x2500 maximum win capable of delivering a decent payout.
Aside from the usual wilds, Pearl Catcher features a few ways for players to take home the gold. Enhanced payouts are possible on reels three and four thanks to the decorated pearls that can appear in these reels during play. These pearls can award players with modifiers between 5x and 50x their original bets, but with one caveat. Players must also land the special Pearl Catcher Symbol on the fifth reel to cash in their prize. In addition to these special pearls, scatter symbols offer players the chance to earn some free spins to try and boost their earning potential. Players who just want to jump straight to the free spins bonus rounds can skip the base game and enter the free spin mode for the cost of 55x their regular stake.
Pearl Catcher is a visually stunning slot machine that offers players numerous ways to win. With an RTP of 96.4% and high volatility, players will have a decent chance at securing a piece of the x2500 maximum win amount. Available on both desktop and mobile, Pearl Catcher is a great choice for casual players looking to get a lot of play time for their money.
