This May, why not visit the gorgeous underwater realm of the mermaid princess Ariana, and her assortment of aquatic friends, in Microgaming’s fabulous new slot, which is named eponymously after the heroine of the game.
One of the most striking aspects of this new slot is just how much time has been invested in the look of the game. From its outstanding High Definition graphics, through to the simple, underwater seascape backdrop, the slot is visually stunning and these visuals are then enhanced further by a perfectly suited, ambient soundtrack.
Visually, the slot us hugely appealing but as any gamer knows, looks alone do not necessarily make a great slot, so how does Ariana score when it comes to features?
Well the good news here is that the new slot does very well indeed. It is a 5×3 slot which has 25-fixed paylines on every spin. You can play for as little as 0.25 per spin however, which means that even those on a more modest bankroll can enjoy the game without having to dig out a treasure map to fund their game.
One of the highlights of the game is the Expanding Symbols feature. All high symbols are stacked on reel one (with Ariana herself also having stacked symbols across all the other reels). If you land a trio if stacked symbols on reel one, then these will expand across the other reels, turning other high symbols landed on that spin into the same symbol as on the first real and thus giving you winning paylines.
Symbols will only expand if the player will win cash, so every time you see this feature in action, you are guaranteed a win.
The free spins round sees 15 free spins awarded for 3 or more scatters landed across the reels and these free spins can be retriggered. You can win the game jackpot of 30,000 coins if you land the right symbols during the free spins round.
