If you are looking for a high quality game to enjoy this May then look no further than Microgaming’s latest release, the sumptuous underwater-themed slot Ariana.
Named after the beautiful mermaid princess whose domain the game is set within, this is a 5×3 reel, fixed 25 payline game that offers a host of features to keep players diving into the game at every opportunity.
Each of the high symbols across the reels is based on a sea creature, or inhabitant of the mermaid’s domicile and each of these high symbols is stacked on reel one, with the Ariana symbol stacked across all reels.
What is truly eye-catching about this slot is the slick presentation. The graphics are stunning and set against the azure blue backdrop of an underwater scene and with a gentle, ambient soundtrack, you are easily transported into this peaceful and beautiful underwater realm.
The game looks great but is also packed with features. Alongside all the usual Wilds and Scatter symbols, one such feature to trigger is the Expanding Symbol feature. This occurs when you land any full symbol stack (three of the same symbols) on reel one. When this happens, this symbol will ‘expand’ across the other reels, turning all other high symbols into the same symbol on the first reel and triggering additional wins.
This certainly livens up the base game and helps players achieve more consistent wins as the symbols will only expand when they will form a winning combination.
To access the free spins section of the slot, you need to land 3 or more scatter symbols across the reels. This triggers 15 free spins with Wilds stacked on reel one during the free spin feature. If you land another 3 or more scatter symbols during free spins, you will retrigger an additional 15 free spins.
With a jackpot available of up to 30,000 coins, Ariana promises to be a welcome addition to Microgaming casinos when it hits shelves this May. So grab your best online casino bonus and start playing for real!
