Ariana is a Microgaming online pokie game which has two main features - free spins and expanding symbols. The game is set in an aquatic paradise and stars Ariana - a beautiful mermaid princess.
With a fixed 25 line format the minimum bet is 25 cents per spin and the maximum is $1,250. You have a lot of options between these levels with a range of credit sizes and the option to play up to 10 credits per line.
The Ariana logo is wild for all symbols except the scattered Starfish. Getting five wilds on an active line pays 2,500 credits at max bet.
The first feature on Ariana is the expanding symbols bonus. On the reels are four types of stacked symbols. The Ariana symbols appears stacked on all reels while the Seahorse, Treasure and Coral symbols appear stacked on the first reel only.
Getting a full stack on the first reel triggers the feature where any other of the same symbols on reels 2 to 4 can expand to fill the whole reel. This gives you the chance at getting a full screen of four different symbols and the same win on all 25 lines.
The free spins on Ariana are triggered bey getting three or more of the Starfish symbols in any position. This awards 15 free games with stacked wilds appearing on the first reel.
During the feature the expanding symbols feature can be won and has the added bonus that wild symbols expand as well as the regular symbols so getting a full screen of the same symbols is made a bit easier. The free games can be re-triggered with three or more Starfish.
To get the games biggest 60,000 credit jackpot you need to get a whole screen of wilds which is only possible during the free games.
