How to play
Golden Tides slot is compatible on all devices – desktop and mobile – and doesn’t cost much to take a spin.
Bet limits start at 0.40 per spin and cap at 40 per spin. Four card suits act as the low-value symbols. Other standard symbols are the four – red-haired, blonde, black-haired, and brunette mermaids.
There are also pearls and shells serving as the medium-paying symbols. The red-haired mermaid offers the best payouts in the base game. This symbol will pay 1, 2.5, or 10x your stake depending on the number of symbols that form the winning combination.
Golden Tides Slot Special Features
The game’s logo serves as the wild and it will substitute all other standard symbols. The scatter symbol is the Treasure Chest. It will trigger the Free Spins feature.
Each of the five reels in the game is stacked with a certain number of mystery symbols that can transform into any other standard symbol except the Scatter and the Wild.
Golden Mermaid Feature
Land a stacked wild on reels 2 and 4 to trigger the Golden Mermaid feature. During this feature, all the mermaid symbols will turn to gold and offer higher payouts of up to 30x your stake for five of a kind.
Collect three or more scatter symbols on the reels to trigger the free spins feature. Players would get 10, 15, or 20 free whirls for 3, 4, or 5 scatters on the reels.
Before you’re awarded the free spins, you will be required to select one of two Free Spins modes:
- Golden Mermaid Spins – This mode activates the Golden Mermaid paytable, however, you will be unable to trigger the Wild Mermaid feature during the free spins round. You can also reactivate the free spins round by landing more scatters. You can claim up to 40 extra free spins.
- Frequent Free Spins – In this mode, your payouts will be calculated based on the standard paytable but you will be able to activate the Golden Mermaid and the Wild Mermaid feature more frequently.
Golden Tides doesn’t offer a progressive jackpot but you can win a max payout of 1,200x bet.
Return to Player (RTP)
Golden Tides has a Return to Player (RTP) of 96%.
The ocean theme is something we’ve seen one too many times but this slot adds a new feel to it. Most players won’t be happy about the lack of extra multipliers during bonus rounds, but its Golden Paytable feature and a max payout of 1,200x the stake will suffice.
