Ariana may no longer be classified as a new Microgaming slot (it was released last year), but it is still very much a winner when it comes to the mermaid theme. There aren’t too many other similarly themed games which features graphics or imagery of this quality. Ariana is more serious than most other mermaid themed slots, and offers Microgaming’s typical 5 reels and 25-line structure. Players can easily wager anything from a floor of 25p per spin, up to a ceiling of £1,250 per spin, making the slot appealing to all. If you strike it lucky, you could hope to win as much as 300,000 coins in this slot.
Ariana offers you the chance to win big with wilds. These Ariana logos can substitute for other symbols and offer rich prizes, but they cannot replace scatters, and scatters are worth more than them.
Starfish scatter icons not only offer you vast prizes, they can also trigger a free spins bonus if 3 or more are landed anywhere on the reels at the same time. Land 5 scatters and you will win the non-progressive jackpot in the Ariana slot machine.
The slot features expanding symbols in both the base game and the free spins bonus round. Any full symbol stack appearing on the first reel will make all other matching symbols expand on other reels.
In the free spins bonus round, any stacked symbols appearing on the first reel will not only extend other symbols, but also all wilds which appear on the reels. The free spins bonus round offers a total of 15 free spins no matter how many scatters you land (provided you get at least 3 of them in the first place), and the free spins bonus can be retriggered.
Ariana is a decent slot when it comes to graphical design. From a features perspective, there is nothing new that we haven’t seen before in other Microgaming developed slot machine games. Despite this, it is the leading mermaid themed slot on the net.
