The game takes place right at the bottom of the ocean with sea anemone and fish surrounding the bottom of the reels and the beautiful blue sea, with light shining from the surface, above the reels. The reels are surrounded by a decorative silver border inlaid with pearls. The symbols include Ariana the mermaid, a chest overflowing with treasures, seaweed and an ocean bed scene, as well as high playing card values. Ariana appears stacked on all reels, while the other high paying symbols appear stacked on reel one only. The starfish is the scatter symbol. It pays out for two or more anywhere on the reels and is the key to triggering the free spins round. The Ariana game logo is the wild symbol and it substitutes for all other symbols, except the starfish scatter symbol, to help create a winning combination.
During the base game, any full stack of symbols on reel one will expand any matching symbols on the other reels to cover that reel in order to create a winning combination.
Landing three or more starfish scatter symbols anywhere on the reels activates the free spins bonus round and awards 15 free spins. During the free spins round, a full stack of symbols on reel one will still expand any matching symbols on the other reels to fill their reel; however wild symbols on reels two, three and four will also stack to cover the entire reel. The free spins can be re-triggered.
Ariana has a magical feel about it, set among the beautiful and slightly mystical world of the bottom of the ocean. With the mermaid Ariana offering the chance to win impressive payouts, this slot game is attractive for all players.
