In ancient Greek mythology the Sirens lured sailors to their death with their enchanting music. Can these same Sirens guide you to towards a jackpot rather than a grisly end? Created by High5 Games, Sirens is a 5 reel, 30 payline video slot that comes with stacked symbols and a bonus round that offers 15 free spins and up to 10x multipliers. Play from between 30p and £300 per spin.
The reels include well-drawn symbols featuring the 3 enchanting Sirens as well as Odysseus, the golden eagle and playing card symbols from ace down to 10. The Sirens logo is the wild and substitutes for all other symbols apart from the bonus. All of these symbols can appear as stacked and fill all 3 rows. Multiple reels featuring the same symbol can of course reap major dividends.
Sirens comes with one main bonus feature which is triggered when you find 3 or more golden harp bonus symbols. Three will give you 7 free spins, four provide 10 with five harps offering 15 free spins.
There’s a slight difference to the reels during the feature thought – the Bonus symbols are replaced by the letters B, O, N, U, S. Various combinations of these letters will provide a payout. One letter will provide 1x the total bet, two gives 2x, three offers 3x, four gives 4x and all five in any order will boost your total bet by 5x.
When the spins have finished playing out, you’ll be presented with 3 harps. Choice one to reveal a 3x, 4x, 5x or 10x multiplier which will be applied to all of your wins from the bonus feature. Note too that payouts in the free games are made from right to left as well as from left to right.
The visuals in Sirens are impressive. Given that they were famous for their enchanting music the soundtrack is a disappointing generic affair that doesn’t really add to the proceedings. The free spins feature doesn’t come around that often but can be lucrative when they do arrive thanks to the combination of stacked symbols, win both ways game engine and multipliers.
Just like the sailors from Ancient Greece, some caution is required when trying to navigate the Sirens. They are certainly enticing but can spell danger if you travel without a little caution. The winged maidens can entrap you as this is a highly volatile slot and probably my favourite High5 Games title. Theme wise, there are plenty of games based on Greek mythology such as WMS’ Zeus and NextGen Gaming’s Medusa which are both high variance slots.
