Sirens Slot by High 5 Games
In Greek Mythology, Sirens are creatures who would lure sailors to the shore with their great beauty and song, only for the sailors to suffer a shipwreck. It was said of the Sirens, “Their song, though irresistibly sweet, was no less sad than sweet, and lapped both body and soul in a fatal lethargy, the forerunner of death and corruption.”
This High 5 Games designed slot focuses on three particular sirens, one in blue with blue hair, another a blonde in yellow, while the third is decked in purple with purple hair. Joining them on the reels is a sailor, who surely doesn’t know the fate that awaits him, while a bird of prey also looks on from the shore. The highlight of the slot is a free spins feature where a nice multiplier could await at the end, while you’ll find a huge bonus payout for landing the right combination of bonus symbols.
Sirens Slot Gameplay
Sirens is a five reel slot with a total of 30 pay lines (with options to play just 15, 9, 5 or 1 lines). The minimum stake for each of these lines is just 1c, while the maximum rises to $10. You’ll find a useful auto play option, where you can set the game to run for 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25 spins without interruption, a mute button will enable you to toggle the sound on and off and an info button to bring up the game rules and the pay table. One of the more original options is the ‘replay’ button, where you can enjoy watching any spin again.
To land a win you’ll need to hit three or more consecutive symbols in a row from left to right on a pay line. The highest paying at the entire slot comes when you can land the bonus symbol five times in a row on the first pay line, a massive 30,000 coins coming your way if you can. The title symbol pays 2,500 coins for the maximum five, while the blue, yellow and purple Sirens pay 750, 500 and 250 coins respectively. The doomed sailor pays 150 coins and the bird of prey 100 coins, these being joined by the playing card letters and numbers A, K, Q, J and 10 in completing the standard symbols on the reels. The title ‘Sirens’ symbol also acts as the wild and will substitute for any other symbol apart from the scatter, enabling many additional wins.
The slot has a nice appearance, although in comparison to many of the modern day slots, it does look a little basic at times, this possibly due to the very basic plain purple background of the most populous playing card symbols. However, the Sirens themselves are nicely drawn and will certainly appeal to those who might enjoy spending some time online with a beautiful lady or two! The accompanying sound to the slot has a slightly dreamlike effect, while you’ll hear the sound of the Sirens when landing a win – just make sure you are not playing whilst on a ship!
Sirens Slot Feature
The bonus symbol with the huge payout for five in a row is also the scatter symbol which activates the free spins feature. Three of these scatters anywhere on the reels gives you 7 free spins, four scatters wins you 10 free spins, while the maximum five on the reels wins you an impressive 15 free spins. During the spins you’ll find the word ‘BONUS’ above the reels, as well as the letters ‘B’, ‘O’, ‘N’, ‘U’ and ‘S’ on the reels themselves. Every time one of the letters appears, you’ll light up the relevant letter above the reels and light up all five letters and you’ll find yourself with an added bonus round. You’ll now select a harp, which will reveal a multiplier of 3x, 4x, 5x or 10x – this multiplier applied to the total win amount you gained throughout the feature. This makes the pick particularly important – the award of the 10x multiplier making for a potentially fantastic free spins feature.
Sirens Slot Conclusion
With a unique slot bonus feature and solid, fast gameplay, there is a lot to commend about this High 5 Games designed slot, especially with the added options of which the ‘replay’ one is the most innovative. Whether the slot has any real long lasting appeal is open to question however, as the game doesn’t really hit the heights often enough. Nevertheless, this slot will appeal to those who enjoy a medium variance slot with the opportunity of a particularly big win with the bonus symbol.
