Yggdrasil Gaming’s Sahara Nights Slot Review

Open Sesame! Sahara Nights is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Yggdrasil Gaming where you go in search of gold and wishes. Available to play on all devices from 20p to £100 a spin, it comes with expanding wilds. In the Free Spins feature, there’s potential for big cash prizes (from the scatters), plenty of free spins and 3 sticky wild reels.

Head to the Sahara

Beautifully designed as always from Yggdrasil Gaming, you are taken to the Sahara Desert and inside a beautiful temple. With an Arabic feel and enchanting soundtrack, symbols include orange, green, blue and red gemstones on the reels. You’ll also see jewel-encrusted goblets, swords and 3 characters – a male resembling Aladdin, a princess and the Sultan.

Genie Wilds feature – expanding wilds

The Sultan is the most rewarding symbol by far with 2, 3, 4 or 5 in combination giving you 1, 2.5, 10 or 175 times your stake. The genie’s lamp is the wild symbol which appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4 – as well as replacing the usual symbols, it can expand to take over the whole reel when giving you a winning combination. Once expanded, it will showcase a genie wild reel. This is known as the Genie Wilds feature.

Free Spins feature – locked wild reels

Sahara Nights comes with a Free Spins feature – this is played when you get 3, 4 or 5 story book free spin symbols. 3, 4 or 5 will give you 8, 12 or 16 free spins as well as a 1, 10 or 1,000 times stake payout. You are than transported to a dreamland of riches.

The wild will only appear on the 3 middle reels again but will automatically expand and remain sticky for the duration of the feature. If you get 3 wild symbols, you will get 2 additional free spins. Furthermore, 2, 3, 4 or 5 free spin symbols will give you 2, 8, 12 or 16 more free spins. 3, 4 or 5 of them will give you 1, 10 or 1,000 times your stake too.

Big cash prizes for triggering the free spins

I really like Sahara Nights – it’s all about the expanding wilds which can lead to big payouts in the base game and Free Spins feature. Triggering the Free Spins feature with 5 free spin symbols will reward you with 1,000 times your stake but the main symbol is the Sultan.

3,500 x stake wins per spin/free spin

With wins of 175 times your stake for 5 on a payline, a screen full of Sultans will result in a 3,500 times stake payout. It’s much easier to achieve this in the Free Spins feature due to the potential 3 sticky wild reels. Medium to high variance, Sahara Nights is an enchanting slot which promises a wild journey if you manage to hold onto your flying carpet. If you fancy conjuring up big rewards with magical genies, Playtech’s Treasures of the Lamps is recommended.
