With five reels and a simple ten pay lines, Arabian Night’s reels are set on a backdrop of white turreted buildings and a clear, starry, night sky. For the most part, the soundtrack leaves something to be desired being rather mechanical in nature, though when a player secures a winning combination on the reels, an Arabian sounding tune is played. The symbols on the reels all follow the Arabian theme with the higher values being a camel, fez, striped red tent, pointy shoes and a curved scimitar. The lower value icons are represented by playing card symbols from ten through to Ace all designed to look like a wall mosaic. The wild symbol is characterized by an Arabian prince, and a jewelled lamp is the scatter and the icon that triggers the bonus game.
How to Play Arabian Nights
Arabian Nights brings to life the stories of riches, genies and thieves, but prior to the player getting in too deep, there are a number of small details that they need to be aware of. Firstly there is a minimum and maximum of just one coin per line. The coin size is fixed at just 0.5. The game also features a progressive jackpot that will increase until a player finally wins it. Arabian Nights comes with an RTP of 95.6% making this one of the higher ones in the slots world and allows for rather regular, though low paying wins.
To set up their preferences, players will find all the necessary buttons at the bottom of the reels. Arrows can increase or decrease the bet amount and also the number of bet lines that they wish to be in use, though should they choose, there is a Max Bet button which will simply set the highest wager for the next few spins until the player chooses to turn this option off. There is also an Auto function to be found in the left corner of the game, which will set the reels spinning for a pre-set number of spins. Again, this can be turned off whenever the player chooses.
Arabian Nights Bonus Features
The main bonus here is, of course, the Progressive Jackpot. Offering one of the biggest jackpots around, Arabian Nights is often in the hundreds of thousands before it is won. However, to win the top amount players do need to be spinning with the maximum bet allowed. If this is all set, then to trigger the progressive jackpot, players simply need to land five of the Arabian prince symbols on a pay line in order to claim the massive jackpot. However, for those players who cannot afford to play at the highest stake, landing five of the prince icons on the reels will still pay out a jackpot of ten thousand coins making this still a hugely worthwhile endeavour.
As with every slot, the free spins are one of the favoured bonuses. Landing three of the scatter lamp icons will reward the player with fifteen spins. In addition to the free spins, any winning combination that is created during this time will have the win tripled. It is also possible to gain more free spins during this time if more of the scatters are landed in the gameplay. It should be noted that triggering these free spins does not happen as often as many would prefer.
Arabian Nights is not as graphically sound as some of NetEnt’s other offerings, yet the combination of bonuses and a large jackpot serve to make this a highly entertaining addition to the slot library. Whilst not as large as some other progressives currently on the market, nevertheless Arabian Nights rarely drops below half a million in potential winnings. Overall, Arabian Nights can be very lucrative even without winning the jackpot as just landing wilds during the base play can result in doubling your money. With great base play bonuses alone, Arabian Nights is worth a spin or two.
