Net Entertainment’s Arabian Nights is something of a legendary slot. It is one of the Swedish casino software provider’s longest running progressive jackpot slot machine games, and although it does cost a few quid to spin those reels, it can yield some pretty impressive jackpots.
In the past, jackpot prizes worth up to €3.3m have been won on this popular slot game.
Look and feel
Understandably, the look and feel of Arabian Nights are a little outdated, but that is because the slot is quite old. However, the playability of the game has not diminished one bit. Graphically, Arabian Nights is still capable of competing with the best of them, too.
Expect to find various aspects of the famous tale on the reels of this slot, including the genie, a scimitar, camel, fez, Bedouin tent, and slippers. High playing card symbols in the shape of mosaics represent the lower-paying icons in this slot, whilst the more thematic symbols are responsible for bigger and better wins.
There are only 10 paylines spread over the 5 reels of this slot, but at the time that was considered pretty standard for slots. Depending on where they are playing this game, players may or may not be able to adjust those paylines. Every casino seems to have its own rules for Arabian Nights, and that extends to wagers, too. Some casinos allow players to stake a minimum bet of 50p per spin, although most require players to wager £5 per spin, which also happens to be the maximum wager. Players must wager a fiver per spin if they wish to get their hands on that progressive jackpot.
Wild symbols appear in the form of a genie. These symbols are also the jackpot triggering icons in the game. If players can land 5 of the genie icons on a payline, they can pocket the progressive jackpot. However, if the same symbols appear on a line without a maximum bet, a secondary 10,000-coin jackpot is paid out instead. All other wins with wilds have their value doubled.
Scatter icons take on the shape of a magic lamp. If players land 2, 3, 4 or 5 such symbols anywhere on the screen, they will pocket scattered wins worth 2, 5, 20 or 500 coins. A total of 15 free spins are awarded to players who land 3 or more scatters, and all wins in the bonus round are tripled.
