The legends are true: spinning fun is to be found on the bottom of the ocean floor. And the little mermaid will show players the way! The online casino game Diamond Tales™: The Little Mermaid delights with 5 reels and 40-win lines, as well as5 story chapters, a Diamond Tales™ feature and a Snap Drop feature. What’s more, this magical adventure also comes with a volatility mode that players can set and change as they please. Take a deep breath and try out this legendary game on the Home of Games!
The Snap Drop Feature can be triggered at any point in the base game. All the player has to do is land the Snap Drop symbol on the fifth reel and have Pearl Hearts in the Special Reel. If the player lands the Snap Drop symbol with no Pearl Hearts in the Special Reel, this counts as a near miss and does not trigger the feature.
The Snap Drop Feature awards the player with one free re-spin where only Pearl Hearts with multipliers on them appear on the reels. The multiplier on the Pearl Heart is defined by the number on the Hearts in the Special Reel above. If there is no Pearl Hearts in the Special Reel above, the reel will not re-spin when the Snap Drop is triggered. Therefore, one to five reels can spin on each Snap Drop trigger and each reel can have between zero and four Hearts landing.
After the re-spin, all multipliers on Pearl Hearts on the main reels are summed up and this sum then multiplies the player’s total bet.
The Diamond Tales™ Feature is triggered by 3 Book Bonus Symbols landing on reels 1, 3 and 5.
The player enters the feature with one extra Heart added to every space in the Special Reel. Therefore, the player enters the feature with at least one Heart on every reel of the Special Reel. The player is then awarded 3 Free Spins, which re-trigger to 3 every time a new Pearl or Gold Diamond Heart lands on the main reels. If the player has 3 spins with no new Heart landing, the feature is over.
Pearl Hearts land with the same multiplier on them as the number on the Heart above in the Special Reel.
If a Pearl Heart lands on a reel, its value will be added to any Pearl Hearts that previously landed on the same reel.
Gold Diamond Hearts
Gold Diamond Hearts work the same as Pearl Hearts. However, instead of being summed up, the Gold Diamond Heart’s value is multiplied by any new Pearl Hearts that land in its reel. This happens every time a new Pear Heart lands, which means a Gold Diamond Heart can be multiplied maximum of three times. In each consecutive Chapter of the game one additional Gold Diamond Heart is added to the Diamond Tales™ Feature. Therefore, in the Cove Feature only 1 Gold Diamond Heart is available but in the Ocean Feature, up to 5 can land. Only one Golden Diamond Heart can land per reel. If the player only has 1 on a Heart in the Special Reel, a Gold Diamond Heart cannot land on that reel.
The player has the option to change the volatility of their game by pressing the Volatility Mode button.
There are the following Volatility options:
Chapter 1- Low
Chapter 2: Low-Medium
Chapter 3: Medium
Chapter 4: Medium-High
Chapter 5: High
Changing the Volatility Mode affects the hit rate of the Diamond Tales Feature and the number of possible Golden Hearts that can be in the Diamond Tales Feature.
Players can only choose a volatility when they have unlocked it in by getting that volatility’s Chapter in game.
