Play Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves Slot for Free & Review

Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves is a Leander Games-powered slot with 5 reels and 40 paylines. There’s a Gold or Bandit bonus feature where you pick from the vases to win cash prizes (just watch out for those monkeys!). Then you have the Open Sesame Free Spins Bonus feature where you can choose the volatility – I like the high risk option where you can win up to 25 free spins and up to a 6x multiplier with up to 8 picks.

Will you say 'open sesame' to a bumper haul of golden treasure? That's the goal in Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves, a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Leander Games. Based on the classic tale of Arabian adventure, it comes with expanding wilds, a pick me bonus round and a free spins feature. Play from between 20p and £20 per spin.

Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves comes with 2 main bonus features. First up is the Gold or Bandit Bonus feature. This one is triggered when you find 3 bonus symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 - it's a pick me round with a couple of added wrinkles. Once activated, you'll be transported to a new screen filled with vases.

You'll be given 6 picks to try and find the treasures hidden inside. Before the feature starts, you'll be awarded up to 3 Ali Protections. These come in handy if there's a monkey in 1 of the vases selected as it will give you an extra life. Pick a monkey when you're out of protections and the feature ends.

Find 3 free spins symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 and you'll trigger the Open Sesame Free Spins Bonus feature - there are 3 levels of volatility to choose from:

  • Low risk – up to 15 free spins with an up to 4x multiplier and 4 picks.
  • The medium option offers up to 20 free spins, a multiplier of up to 5x and 6 picks.
  • Finally, there's the high risk option of up to 25 free spins, a maximum multiplier of 6x and 8 picks.

You'll then be taken to a room full of treasure chests - pick 6 chests and try to find numbers below the spins and multiplier option you opted for. If you do exceed the total, you'll be awarded 10 free spins with a 1x multiplier. The free spins play out with a stacked wild on reel 1 too - any wins will be boosted by the multiplier you finished with.

The visuals in Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves are cartoon-style but are very nicely done - symbols on the reels include musical instruments, swords, rings, scarab beetles, snakes, camels and monkeys. They're joined by a mean looking thief and Ali Baba himself who's the top payer, delivering up to 2,500 coins.

The slave girl Morgiana is the wild - she can appear as a stacked wild to fill up a whole reel. The bag of coins is the scatter, paying up to 100 times your total bet. The actions plays out to an Arabian backing track and sounds of the souk.

Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves offers an impressive mix of quality visuals and bonus features, especially as you can select the level of variance you're most comfortable. Get lucky with the free spins and stacked wilds and the 40 thieves can help you get away with plenty of coin. If the theme is appealing, NetEnt’s Arabian Nights is a good option considering it has a progressive jackpot which can make you an instant millionaire.
