Arabian Nights

Arabian Nights

Arabian Nights is a popular online video slot from NetEnt which features 5 reels, 10 adjustable paylines and a progressive jackpot. The theme of the game is based on the world of Arabian Nights in the Islamic world of the 9th to 13th centuries, with symbols including a dagger, shoes, a tent, a hat,  a camel and of course a genie lamp and a moustached man.

The graphics are simple, comprising some sharp and colourful stylized visuals which seem to have come out of some classic computer game together with the sound effects. The fact that the game is played over a maximum of 10 paylines only, makes it one of the most affordable progressive games available online.

Low rollers will be particularly happy because they’ll have the chance to qualify for the biggest prize of all, thanks to a maximum bet of £/€5 which means they too can dream to win the progressive jackpot.

Important Symbols

The moustached man, who features in the logo of the game, is the Wild symbol. The Wild will replace all other symbols in the game with the exception of the scatter and the jackpot symbols. The Wild will act as a multiplier, doubling the amount of any payout when it appears with other symbols to help form a winning combination.

The genie lamp is the Scatter. Two or more of these anywhere on the reels will award instant payouts, whereas three or more will grant cash prizes but also trigger the free spin round.

Payout Table and Potential Winnings

The highest paying fixed jackpot in the base game amounts to 10,000 coins, and will be awarded when 5 wilds appear on a payline without the maximum bet being placed. The same combination appearing with a maximum bet will award the biggest prize of the whole game, i.e. the progressive jackpot payout.

The second best base game payout is 2,500 coins for 4 wilds and 500 times the initial bet for 5 scatters. The jackpot amount varies but it’s always very generous; the seed value and therefore your guaranteed payout for this slot is a remarkable €125,000 and this is with either the pooled or local jackpot.

Obviously you can dream bigger than this given that the average payout surpasses the 1 million mark, and that there’s been about a winner every 14 weeks since its launch.

The world’s largest online non-pooled jackpot of €8,636,041.54 (£7,321,810, $11,107,900) was claimed in 2012 by a Finnish player who’d placed the max bet of €5 on the Arabian Nights slot!

Bonus Features

This video slot only offers one bonus round, which is a free spin round. Three genie lamps trigger 15 free spins. All of the free spin payouts will be worth triple the normal payout amount. During the free spin round, three more scatters will award additional free spins to the player. The bonus round can be retriggered unlimited times, offering amazing chances to collect some of the best payouts from the game.

Game Settings and How To Play

Unlike many of the more recent video slots, Arabian Nights has a fixed coin value and bet level which cannot be altered when placing bets. Coin value is set at 0.50, so bets range from $/€/£0.50 to $/€/£5, thanks to possibility of selecting the number of bet lines (1-10).

There’s not much room for customisation, due to limited game settings options. Game history can be accessed when playing for real money. Common features such as quick spin option, Max Bet and an auto-play are also available in this game.

You can set a number of automatic spins (10 – 1,000), sit back and relax whilst the reels keep spinning. Play can be disabled at any time during the game, stop according to cash winnings or losses, or whenever you win or hit the bonus if you have selected the relevant settings.
