Ariana is the goddess of the seas in this ocean themed video pokie from Microgaming. The depiction of the ocean in the background to the reels is breathtaking. The starfish, sea anemones, treasure chest and corals are high paying symbols crafted with photographic realism. When Ariana expands to a full length figure the experience is divine. Ariana can appear stacked on any reel and anemones, treasure chest and corals can appear stacked on reel 1. In the innovative Expanding Symbols feature, any full symbol stack on reel 1 expands matching symbols on the other reels. All 15 spots in the slot game can end up with the same symbol. It has happened several times when we have played this pokie.
The Ariana logo is the wild symbol and it also awards the highest line payouts. Three or more scatter starfish symbols appearing simultaneously anywhere on the reels trigger the free spins feature. You are awarded 15 free spins to start with. But landing three or more scatter symbols during the free spins will retrigger the feature. The Ariana logo wild symbol can appear stacked on reel 1 in the free spins. The Expanding Symbols feature becomes more attractive because any full symbol stack on reel 1 expands matching symbols and wild symbols on the other reels.
Ariana is a 25 paylines online video pokie in which you always play with all paylines enabled. The total bet varies from AU$0.25 to AU$1250.00. This range covers both low rollers and high rollers adequately. The starfish symbol awards scatter payouts when two or more appear anywhere on the reels. Five scatter symbols award 100 times your total bet, which on maximum bet this works out to AU$125,000. The line payouts are on the lower side, but the Expanding Symbols leads to multiple winning paylines and makes up when triggered. You can win up to AU$300,000 in this pokie game.
