It’s into the world of those undersea ladies of lore via online slots in Arian – and in this game, if you get the full monty – I mean, the full *mermaid* -- you have a wild time. I mean you have a stacked babe. I mean you have a reel full of stacked wilds. Stacked wilds, yes, that’s one of the amenities of cavorting under da sea…
We’re forced to accept that it’s the main mermaid’s name. We do not in actuality have this supposition confirmed within the game instructions, so we’ll have to run with it.
A possible alternative explanation: The action of this game takes place in Lake Ariana near Sofia in Bulgaria. But the main mermaid of the Ariana slot looks a more Bonnie Tylerian than Bulgarian, for certain.
The undersea adventure theme pervades the Ariana slot game’s symbol set, which ranges from the abstract to the boring. Ariana the Mermaid is here, as is a treasure chest. D(Did the mermaids cause a shipwreck centuries ago? Intrigue!). A swell-looking starfish serves as scatter.
Also among the high-paying symbols are … well, we’re gonna admit defeat on these. They’re definitely a … couple of things, for sure. Maybe one’s a coral reef (in Bulgaria?!?) and a … clump of seaweed? We’re stumped.
And on the boring end of the paytable, the wild is symbol marked simply Ariana, while the low-paying symbols are the A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 because when it comes down to it, what the hell is there to do underwater? You’re not gonna be breathing or using any electronics, just to name two examples.
However, of prime importance is the fact that in the Ariana slots games, all symbols are stacked.
Whenever reel 1 is stacked with any symbol, all other reels containing that symbol expand to fill the reel -- and hopefully pay out well. As you can imagine, landing three wilds in that leftmost reel usually gets quite nice results.
During the free spins bonus round – launching 15 freebies by landing three or more scatters in a spin – this feature gets even more amazing. When any symbol is stacked in reel 1, the symbol stacks everywhere it appears, as usual -- *but* every wild on the screen for that spin also expands. The mermaids of Ariana (slot) are generous indeed!
The Ariana slot has 25 paylines. These are set, as are the possible wagered amongst; these run from 25¢ to $125, but include some odd multiples of 25 along the way. If you want to bet $31.25 per spin, for example, Ariana may be your game.
The top jackpot win is 240x the total wager: That’s a jackpot payout of $60 to $30,000 (or $7,500 if you’re paying for $31.25 per spin). Nice.
