Take a trip to the mysterious east in Sinbad, an historical fantasy themed slot from developer Quickspin. This 5 reel, 40 payline title comes with a trio of special free spin bonus features offering plenty of added extras. Join the epic adventure from between 40p and £100 per spin. One of the most famous characters from the Thousand and One Nights stories, Sinbad the Sailor enjoyed adventure aplenty and the slot version pays tribute to some of his most outlandish escapades.
The chief sources of entertainment comes from the Free Spins feature which is triggered by 3 or more sailing ship scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels. Once activated, you’ll be offered the choice of three different bonus rounds.
First up is the Ape Free Spins feature – opt for this and you’ll be awarded 7 free spins. Any time the ape appears during the bonus, he will leave at least 1 and possibly more wild symbols on the reels. These will remain locked in place for the remainder of the free spins.
Next is the Roc Free Spins feature – here you’ll be awarded 10 free spins. The added extra here is that whenever a diamond lands on the reels, a bird of prey will swoop down and carry it onto a meter to the right of the reels. As you collect more diamonds, extra reels will be turned wild and more free spins will be offered.
Finally there is the Snake Free Spins feature which give you 12 free games. When the snake symbol appears on reels 1 and 5, the snake will slither between the two, leaving a trail of wilds symbols in its wake.
This adventure-themed offering looks a delight. The reels are filled with beautifully drawn characters from the Thousand and One Night adventures. It’s all set against a Middle Eastern cityscape, filled with minarets. The soundtrack has a slight Asian flavour and isn’t too intrusive.
The adventure may be high but the variance in Sinbad is pretty low. Expect plenty of play regardless of your bankroll. The best way to try and bag a big score is via the free spins feature. Here we’d opt for the Roc round, with the extra spins and wilds creating some nice opportunities for a decent payout. We’re more than happy to join Sinbad on his adventures in this enjoyable and entertaining slot. If you like Middle Eastern-themed slots, Desert Treasure II and Sultan’s Gold (both by Playtech) are highly recommended.
