Before you can begin spinning, you will be given the option to activate the Golden Bet feature. Choosing to activate this feature will cost an additional 15x your bet. Once active, a guaranteed random Mermaid will land on reel 5.

Respins & Mermaids

Landing 1 or more Mermaid symbols on the fifth reel during the base game will activate a Respin with their features active. Landing additional Mermaid symbols during this feature will award an additional Respin with all collected features active.

  • Blue Mermaid – Multiplies all wins by either x2, x3, x5, x10, or x25.
  • Green Mermaid – Triggers an Avalanche feature in which winning symbols are destroyed and new symbols fall from above, potentially forming even more winning combinations.
  • Red Mermaid – Removes all Low-paying symbols from the reels, leaving only High-paying and special symbols in play.
  • Orange Mermaid – Triggers all Wild symbols in view to expand to fill the entire reel they are on upon landing.

Enchanted Waters: Our Verdict

Enchanted Waters is certainly an enchanting game, if you have a soft spot for such serene settings, but it’s diverse too. It has lots of features that work via the individual mermaids to seriously switch up the Base Game, and we’ll admit that we were quite impressed with its performance.

The respins seemed to trigger quite often, which made for an entertaining Base Game. A dull Base Game can be the death of a slot in many cases, yet Enchanted Waters keeps you engaged throughout.

Yggdrasil cleverly ups the ante in Free Spins to make it rightfully more exciting, and the potential would suggest that Enchanted Waters is one to watch out for. At 25,000x the bet as a maximum win, you’d be hard pressed to find reasons not to at least try Enchanted Waters, even if the fluffiness of its mermaid theme doesn’t appeal to you.

Overall, we think it’s a good offering from Yggdrasil. It’s not quite top-tier, but it’s by no means average, and we’d even go as far as saying that it’s pretty great.
