Ariana Slots

Ariana is an underwater themed slot by MicroGaming. Ariana is a beautiful mermaid with long flowing light blue-tinged hair and is the predominant symbol on the reels. She resides under the sea and is joined by a starfish alongside the coral and seaweed found all around. Ariana is clearly rich too, as a treasure chest sits on the ocean floor, containing all kinds of gold, silver jewellery and trinkets. The game stands out because of the expanding symbols found in both the base game and the free spins round, where the wins will come along thick and fast.

Being based under the sea, you’ll not be surprised to hear that the game features much blue, both in the background and on the reels themselves. Coral lines the bottom of the screen, while you’ll see the reflection of the sun peaking underwater at the top of the screen. All of the symbols on the reels are nicely designed, Ariana herself being the most striking of all, especially when she expands to take up an entire reel. The playing card symbols from 10 to Ace also appear, these adding some variety of colour to the reels alongside the blue. The game is accompanied by the general noise of a casino, with generic slot sounds greeting each win and the landing of a scatter.

  • Playing Ariana

    This slot has five reels and a fixed number of 25 win lines. The majority of slots require you to enter the coin value per win line, but here you’ll simply set your total stake for each spin using the up and down buttons on the control panel (a much more straightforward idea). You’ll win when landing 3 or more symbols in a row from left to right on a win line with the largest of these wins coming for five in a row.

    The base game has a very original format. Here you’ll find that symbols are stacked on reel one (Ariana is actually stacked on every reel). Each time one of the symbols encompasses all three spaces on reel one, any other of the reels featuring the same symbol will now also stack with this symbol. This means that if a symbol is stacked on reel one and appears on each of the other 4 reels, the whole slot will be covered with that symbol, and all of the win lines will pay out for five in a row – nice work if you can get it!

    If you land Ariana five times in a row you’ll win 200 coins, while the rest of the standard symbols pay out between 175 and 25 coins for the full house of 5. These win amounts might seem smaller than you’ll find at some other slots, but the stacked symbols format makes for a game where the wins can come in large clusters, so you’re definitely get your money’s worth.

    A handy auto play option allows you to set the slot running for 10, 25, 50 or a 100 spins, with added options of playing until a feature and setting a custom number.

    Having all of these wins available with stacked symbols actually makes a wild much more valuable, as it could enable a great number of additional wins. The wild here is the title symbol and will substitute for all other symbols apart from the scatter. This is also the top paying non scatter symbol at the entire game, giving you a 250 coin win for five in a row.

    The final symbol on the reels is the starfish, which is the scatter. Should you land 2 or more across any of the reels and you’ll win an immediate cash prize (5 scatters wins you an impressive 2,500 coins), however, 3 or more will also activate the free spins feature. You’ll have 15 free spins during the feature, but these differ from the base game in the fact that the wild symbol joins all of the others in being stacked on reel one and will also turn any additional wilds on the reels into expanding wilds. The free spins round can be re-triggered during the feature.

    Final Verdict

    Usually you’ll find that many slots play in a similar way until you come to the feature rounds. However, this MicroGaming designed slot offers a base game experience which is very different, giving the slot a unique feel. This isn’t the grandest, most feature filled slot you’ll find online, but for a game with a twist, Ariana is certainly a game you can enjoy.
