Any slot game which describes their lead character as “the heroine of the high seas” is going to heighten the curiosity surrounding it.  That is exactly what Microgaming did when they created their mermaid theme slot game, Ariana.  Ariana is an underwater adventure slot which has five reels and three rows.  On Ariana, you also have twenty-five fixed paylines, which means all paylines will remain active throughout.  As well as twenty-five paylines on this slot game you also have a wild symbol, a free spins bonus feature and stacked symbols on reel one, all designed to help make the slot experience better and increase your chances of landing winning combination.

Our Verdict: Ariana, is a very relaxed slot game, which has not felt the need to go overboard with graphics and animations.  The background for the game is an underwater scene with fish disappearing into the distance. As you spin you also have quite a calming soundtrack which adds a nice element to the game.  However, the free spins bonus feature is what makes Ariana above all worth trying.  On the free spins feature, you can earn up to fifteen free spins with the addition of stacked symbols to help create winning combinations more easily.

How to Play: Ariana is a five reel slot game with three rows and twenty-five fixed paylines. Before players start they will need to select their stake, which can be changed at any time after any spin.  The minimum bet per spin on Ariana is 25p, but players with a larger wallet size might like to bet the maximum of £125 per spin.  The objective of the game will be to try win by landing combinations of three or more symbols on a single payline.  The value then of that payout will be added to your cash pot and you can continue or cash out.

Wild Symbol: The higher value symbol on Ariana are all theme related and include a treasure chest, some seaweed, the seabed and Ariana herself.  The playing card symbols 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower value symbols.  The Ariana logo is the wild symbol and it can substitute for all, but the scatter starfish symbol, to help create winning combinations for you.  The logo wild will also be able to form its own winning combinations when three or more land on a payline.

Stacked Symbol on Reel One: If you land a collection of stacked symbols on reel one you might be in for winning a big cash prize.  When the stacked symbols land then all other matching symbols on the reels will expand and fill their respective reel, which may lead to a five symbol combination.

Free Spins: The main bonus feature on Ariana is a free spins bonus feature.  To trigger the free spins you will need to land three, four or five of the scatter starfish symbols anywhere in view.  You earn fifteen free spins for activating the bonus.  During the free spins you can still land stacked symbols on reel one, however, if you land any wilds they will becoming expanding wilds too if they are on reels two or four
