All41 Studios tasks players with journeying to the depths of the ocean in a bid to discover underwater jewels with its latest slot release, Pearl Catcher.
Pearl Catcher is a 5×3 reel slot with 243 ways to win and a maximum win of up to x10,000 the player’s stake.
Low value symbols in the game come in the form of the high end of a deck of cards, with Jack through to Ace. These symbols can offer between x0.15 and x1 the player’s stake, depending on the amount of matching combinations that land on a single spin.
Next up, starfish, crabs and green fish depict the medium value symbols. If the right amount of paying combinations land at once, these symbols can offer between x0.5 and x2.5.
Turtles are used to represent the highest-paying symbol, offering between x0.5 and x5 the player’s preferred bet.
Trident wilds can also land on the reels, substituting for all symbols other than the scatters, bonus pearls and bonus clam symbols. These wilds only land on reels two, three and four.
Free spins text symbols depict the scatters, awarding eight free spins if three or more land on the board in one go.
Four versions of the bonus pearl symbol are available, with pink, blue, decorated pink and blue variants. These pearls can land on the first four reels, but not on the fifth, and showcase a cash value that can be collected by the bonus clam symbol.
Finally, bonus clam symbols can land on the fifth reel with its own three variants. If clams land on the fifth reel while bonus pearls of the corresponding colour are present on the first four reels, the clam shell will collect the cash values of all attainable pearls.
Gold clam shells land before revealing one of three variants, blue clams only collect blue pearls, pink clams only collect pink pearl values and the final pink and blue clams collects all pearl values.
Standard pink pearls can appear with cash values between x0.5 and x4 the player’s bet, along with the standard blue pearls. Decorated blue and pink pearls can offer between x5 and x50 the player’s stake.
When pearls are collected, the reels they land on become cascading as the pearls disappear to make way for new symbols to drop in to increase the win potential of an already successful spin.
During the free spins feature, a clam shell multiplier meter becomes active on the bottom of the reels. For every clam shell that collects pearls on a free spin, this meter will increase by one, providing a multiplier for the value collected on that spin.
For every three clams that are applied to the meter, players are awarded an additional three spins for the feature.
Players can buy the bonus free spins feature for the price of a significantly increased bet.
