Arabian Nights Theme – Audio & Design Features – medieval Arabian theme

Arabian Nights slot base game

The Arabian Nights slot has a medieval Arabian theme and set in the Islamic times of the 9th to the 13th centuries. Released way back in 2005, the visuals are rather basic and reminiscent of a land based casino slot. Set against a starry night with Arabic temples in the backdrop, the game is loosely based on the One Thousand and One Nights folk tales.

With the reels encase by gold, symbols include low value K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royals. You will also see camels, berets, Fez hats, tents, slippers and curved swords. The curved sword symbol is the most lucrative giving you 0.2, 2.5, 12.5 or 200 x stake for 2, 3, 4 or 5 in combination.

The Aladdin character is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter. Any winning combination with the wild is doubled, excluding wins with only wilds. 2, 3 or 4 wilds will result in a 1, 20 or 250 x stake win.

Despite being an old game, you can play Arabian Nights on desktop, mobile and tablet devices as NetEnt has revamped the slot using HTML5 technology.

Bonus Features in Arabian Nights

The Arabian Nights slot comes with 2 bonus features. The free spins will give you up to 30 free spins with a 3x multiplier. Involve a genie wild symbol in a win and the multiplier effectively doubles to 6x. The other is the Jackpot feature which is rather straightforward but hard to trigger.

Free Spins feature

Look out for the Aladdin’s lamp symbol as this is the scatter. Landing 2, 3, 4 or 5 will give you a 2, 5, 20 or 500 x stake payout. Landing 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels will trigger the Free Spins feature.

The feature then begins with 15 free spins with all wins trebled awarded (3x multiplier). If you land another 3 or more scatters during the feature, you will retrigger it to give you 15 additional free spins. This will take your total to 30. The extra free spins won’t be subject to the 3x multiplier though.

A win with a wild symbol will double your payout. Combine this with the feature’s 3x multiplier and you can benefit from a 6x multiplier. If you were to fill the reels with curved sword symbols including wilds, the 6x multiplier would result in a 12,000 x stake win. That’s high fora progressive jackpot slot.

Jackpot feature

The Arabian Nights slot focused mainly on the Jackpot feature. As touched on above, most online casinos will offer the progressive jackpot version where the jackpot is at it’s biggest. There’s also the pooled jackpot version which can be found at specific casinos or casino groups.

To trigger the Jackpot feature and win the progressive jackpot, you need to land 5 wild symbols on a payline. With the progressive jackpot being won every 147 days on average, the average payout is approximately just over £1 million. The largest ever Arabian Nights jackpot was €3,332,981 which was won in March 2014 (approximately just over £3 million).
