Ariana Slot Review

If you are an avid fan of the underwater world then this slot might be a good place to start. Provided by Microgaming, Ariana is a simple slot that is very easy to learn due to the small number of features. Embark on an oceanic adventure and hit spin to watch your winnings rise to the surface.

The developer chose a very simple presentation for its slot. Graphics-wise the game features a static background of an underwater environment filled with fish and corals. The dashboard could be allocated some more space as it takes less than 50% of the game’s total screen. It is surrounded by a slim gray border and nothing more. The controls are located to its right.

Mechanics-wise, Ariana is a super simple and classic-looking slot. There aren’t any innovative features present. It resembles the Lord of the Ocean slot by Novomatic as they both offer an oceanic theme.

The game was released back in 2015. That said, you would expect something more from the graphics. They are outdated and dull but thankfully the background music is cheerful and the overall vibe is relaxing.

How to Play Ariana

The game has 3 lines and 5 reels and a somewhat low number of 25 pay lines. The interface is different from what you’d usually find on such slots. Instead of the classic bottom of the dashboard controls, they are stacked in a column. From the top down, you get the menu button, the autoplay function, the spin button, a quick spin option, and the stake selector.

Besides, there is a black line located at the bottom of the screen indicating your credits, won amount, and current bet.

The available betting amounts range from $0.25 to $125 or any other currency’s equivalent. You can enable the autoplay function which allows you to select from 10 up to 100 spins. You also get some preset options to select from when you click on the stake selector.

Apart from the bonus features, you can also hit a pretty big jackpot of up to $30,000.

As for the symbols, you get the usual 10 to A low paying symbols and other higher-paying ones like the Arianna character, coral reef, water dragon, and the treasure chest. There are two special symbols:

  • Ariana Logo – This acts as the wild symbol and substitutes for any other symbol to form winning combinations. It can also create symbol stacks.
  • Starfish – This acts as the scatter symbol. Landing 3 of these will activate the free spins feature. It can’t be substituted by the wild symbol.

Game Rules

Ariana Features

The game doesn’t have much to offer on its own but the bonus features can be exciting and very generous, to say the least. Here is what you can expect to encounter playing the Ariana slot.

Expanding Symbol

This feature is activated if you get a full symbol stack in the first reel. Symbols eligible for this bonus are the Ariana logo, Ariana, the coral reef, the water dragon, and the treasure chest. Ariana can also appear as a stacked symbol on any reel. All matching symbols on the other reels will become stacked and result in high paying winning combinations.

Expanding Symbol
Free spins

If you hit 3, 4, or 5 starfish scatter symbols you will be awarded 15 free spins. During these, the Ariana logo symbol can appear as a Stacked Wild on the first reel. Any wins will be multiplied by the total bet and in case you hit the scatter symbols again during the free spins you will trigger the feature again.
