Sirens Slots

SirensSirens is a Cryptologic game, that doesn’t refer to the sirens of the police cars or ambulances, instead focusing on the beautiful creatures of the sea that are mentioned in the Greek mythology. Known to attract sailors to their death with their calls, the sirens would get them to bring their ships to areas with rocks, which meant that those that listened to them were doomed. That’s what the legend says at least and you get a chance to learn more about it in this slot, built with an Ancient Greek influence in most of its symbols.

A bit of an older looking slot, Sirens confirms it with its 9 paylines found on 5 reels, but it also surprises with features that include all kinds of symbols (scatters and wilds) and free spins with multipliers. Payout wise it’s about average for Cryptologic, with only $35,000 up for grabs.

Features of Sirens

You’re going to find that Sirens gives you every chance to have fun while playing it, as it makes use of various features while trying to keep you interested. That means having access to special symbols like scatters or wilds, or receiving free spins and multipliers from them.

The wild symbol shows us a man, and the paytable simply describes him as Hero, a better name than most get I suppose. As a wild feature, it has the ability to replace other symbols in newly formed combinations, which couldn’t form without its help. This symbol needs to appear on the right payline in order to do something and help a combo being formed, so it’s not like it’s automatically useful when it appears. Multiple wild symbols appearing will signal good news, especially if a single payline gets them to form a combo of their own. With up to 7,000 coins in prizes, the wild symbol is one of the more useful features in this game. It can’t substitute for the Ship scatter, but the paytable doesn’t mention anything about the three Siren scatters.

There are two types of scatter symbols in Sirens. One of them is the Ship, a so called Trireme that the Ancient Greeks were using to navigate the Mediterranean Sea. The usual role of the scatter is to give you free spins and cash prizes. The Ship scatter has the latter role, offering up to 100 times the wager, as long as up to five of them are scattered on the screen.


Free Games Feature

The role of the free games trigger goes to the three siren symbols. The Orange, Pink and Green Sirens are called that way because of the color of their hair. They get to make appearances on the 3rd, 4th and 5th reels, each one getting its own reel. You only get the 15 free spins and the 2x multipliers when all three Sirens are scattered on the three reels at the same time. Retriggering the free spins is also a possibility.

Betting options and jackpots

It’s a cheaper game to play than many others from this developer, so it’s understandable why it’s only average payout wise. You get to use coins of up to $5 inside, with the starting point being at $0.05. With 9 lines available, you can get the bet to go up to $45.

You will find that 7,000 coins constitute a pretty decent reward, since you invest only 1 coin for each activated payline. It can turn into $35,000 cash. The alternative is a Rapidfire Jackpot, a progressive jackpot that you get at random, at the end of a spin.

Design and symbols

Though I’ve found the design to look somewhat dated, I’ve also enjoyed it in this case. When dealing with a game that is about Greek mythology, it seems appropriate for the graphics not to look too modern. The ocean at night, with the trireme ship sailing on it under the light of the stars, this is the image that you’re presented with in the background. On the reels, there are various images that are mostly related to the story of the Sirens and the ship that they’re trying to attract.

Symbols: Hero (wild, 7,000x), Trireme Ship (scatter, 100x the wager), Sirens with orange, pink or green hair (scatters), Helmet (2,500x), Amphora (1,000x), Sword in sheath (500x), Harp (500x), Ace (250x), King (250x), Queen (150x), Jack (150x), 10 (100x) and 9 (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

Fans of Greek mythology will enjoy the game and its unusual story about sirens that attract sailors to their doom, while the rest of the players will find that it’s mostly an average title.

The Sirens slot machine is offered through the Cryptologic platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
