Ariana slot is a mermaid themed video slot, and what we are looking at here is a really beautiful slot game, perfectly presented in rich blue hues with a variety of sea themed graphics such as treasure chests and sea creatures alongside traditional slot icons featuring cards and numbers. All this is set on a background which makes you feel like you are playing deep under the ocean. The main aim of the slot is to find treasure by exploring her world. Its design is of the high quality you have come to expect from Microgaming and has 25 pay lines with a 3 row and 5 reel layout. Betting starts from as little as £0.25 per spin up to a maximum of £125 per spin via 25 different coin values and 10 bet lines. This makes the game suitable for a mix of players.“It is available for mobile/tablet as well which means you can play on the go and the game translates well to the mobile device, still retaining all the same features and playability even in the portable setting ”.
The main feature of Ariana Slot is the free spins bonus round and this is activated once you land 3+ starfish scatter icons at any position on the reels. This will earn you a whopping 15 free spins and can be triggered repeatedly every time you land the starfish icons. The nice thing about this particular free spins bonus is that it incorporates both stacked and expanding wilds which can lead to massive wins. If you manage to land a complete stack on the first reel, it expands on all other identical symbols on the reels at the time.
Improved playability and aesthetics
If you like slot games you will not be disappointed with Microgamings latest offering. It’s a medium variance slot game meaning that wins are frequent, maybe not as big as some other slots but there’s the potential to land wins of up to 240x your wager through the free spins bonus and this means you will get a good amount of game time alongside some nice cash wins. It’s available for mobile/tablet as well which means you can play on the go and the game translates well to the mobile device, still retaining all the same features and playability even in the portable setting.
