Treasures of the Lamps is a Playtech-powered slot with 5 reels and 20 paylines – playable from 20p to £500 a spin across all devices, this Arabian themed offering comes with 3 random wild features and 2 main bonus features. The Free Games feature gives you 10 free spins with a 5x multiplier and The Stargazer Bonus feature sees you pick stars to win cash prizes.
Visually, it has a typical Arabian setting with mosques and a bustling city in the backdrop – with an opulent feel, symbols on the reels include Arabian style A, K, Q and J playing cards as well as filled treasure chests, curved swords, mosques and white horses.
There’s also 3 Genies (Gloria, Ruby and Audrey) which appear 2-high on the reels – the one with the red background is the most rewarding giving you 50 times your stake for 5 across a payline. The Genie’s lamp is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter – it also pays out 250 times your stake for 5 on a payline.
Treasures of the Lamps comes with The Magic Lamp feature where the Magic Lamp can summon 1 of 3 Genies to grant a powerful wish on any base game spin, randomly. They will reward you with the following:
- Audrey adds up to 5 extra wild symbols to the reels randomly.
- Gloria summons spreading wilds which move left or right for rows of wilds.
- Ruby gives you free respins until you win with any wild symbols locked in position.
Look out for the scatter symbols (10/20/30 Plays, 1-5x Multiplier, Free Games and/or Stargazer Bonus) landing on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously – this will give you access to either the Free Games feature or The Stargazer Bonus feature.
In the Free Games feature, the scatter symbol on reel 1 reveals the number of free spins you’ll play with – this can be up to 30. The multiplier on reel 3 reveals the multiplier applied to all wins – this can be up to 5x. Now, the Magic Lamp feature can trigger randomly on any free spin meaning you can benefit from locking wild respins, spreading wilds and extra wilds on every free spin.
Then you have the Stargazer Bonus feature which is played when the Stargazer Bonus scatter appears on reel 5. The scatter on reel 1 reveals the number of picks you’ll get (up to 30) and the scatter on reel 3 reveals the multiplier applied (up to 5x). You then pick stars to win between 0.5 and 10 times your total stake.
The Magic Lamp feature can trigger randomly after any pick – this summons 1 of the 3 genies. Ruby (the red genie) can give you 2 or 3 extra picks whilst Gloria (the green genie) can increase the value of the stars to 10, 12, 15 or 20 times your stake. Audrey (the yellow genie) will automatically give you between 2 and 5 star prizes. The aim is to form a constellation which gives you a cash bonus equal to the amount in the next constellation pays field – you will be transported to a new stage for even more picks. There’s up to 360 prizes to be won here!
I really like Treasures of the Lamps – visually it looks great but the bonus features are excellent. I like the randomly triggered feature in the base game but the bigger wins should come in the Free Games feature where a potential 5x multiplier can be applied. This can result in huge wins of 25,000 times your stake on each free spin – let’s just hope the 3 beautiful genies grant wild wishes! If you like the theme, you should try Playtech’s Desert Treasure II which is a classic.
