Mermaids, Serpent Wrapped Ships and More in this Under the Sea Themed Slot
The sea can be a place of mystery, magic and wonders, and it seems they all appear on the reels of this WMS designed slot. A red headed mermaid is perhaps the most significant character in the game, with two different images acting as both the wild and the bonus scatter too. Dolphins, treasure chests, shellfish inspired jewellery and ancient vases can all be found underneath the water too. Land a big 5 in a row win and you’ll receive an impressive boost too.
Sea Tales is an enjoyable slot with added surprises, offering the following range of features:

The larger of the two mermaid symbols acts as the bonus scatter. This shows an image of the mermaid within a picture frame, with her long red hair flowing in the sea. Land three scatter symbols and you’ll win 15 free spins, while four scatters awards 25 free spins. Land the maximum five scatters and you’re awarded with a very impressive 40 free spins.
During the free spins every win is multiplied by 2. This multiplier, in combination with the large number of spins is a good winning combination.
You’ll find an interesting twist when hitting a 5 in a row win. As well as receiving the initial award, the win will be upgraded to another 5 in a row win featuring a higher paying symbol. This is particularly rewarding and places a high premium on these bigger wins. During gameplay, if you do line up symbols on the first four reels, the fifth reel will slow down, adding a nice element of tension to the game.
If you land a 5 in a row combination that includes a wild symbol, the win will upgrade to one featuring 5 wilds, ensuring the biggest win in the game.
The game features two progressive Jackpots – the minor and the major. These jackpots can be won randomly after any spin. The higher the stake you play, the more chance you’ll have of winning. The minor jackpot is guaranteed to pay out before it reaches $50, while the major jackpot will pay before it reaches $500.
The smaller of the mermaid symbols acts as the wild and will substitute for any other symbol apart from the scatter. This is the highest paying symbol in the game, worth 1,000 coins for the maximum five in a row. As well as this standard wild, another 2x wild appears on reel 5 only, which will double any win.
The dolphin pays 750 coins, while the mermaid facing Poseidon is worth 600 coins. Other symbols such as ships, gold coins, treasure and jewellery make up the middle of the pay table. The four playing card suits in hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades fill the bottom end of the pay scale.
While there are many under-the-sea themed slots on the casino floor, this game perhaps has the richest mix of symbols. Mermaids add an air of mystery to the game, while treasure chests and gold coins imply those winning pay outs. The most striking symbol in the game is a large ship, but if you look closely, it is engulfed by a large sea serpent – or perhaps the Kraken. The large image of the mermaid is striking too, this single image invading the space of the symbols above and below.
If you like a good sea adventure in your slot gaming, Sea Tales is certainly a good go-to slot. At first glance the slot seems to revolve around the impressive free spins feature – a large number of spins with an added multiplier is always a good combination. However, when you land your first 5 in a row win, things get really interesting - the initial win is boosted with another larger win. With two progressive Jackpots too, there is much more to this slot than meets the eye.
