Experience the magic of Arabian Nights on the progressive slot from NetEnt. Travel back in time to meet a mysterious sultan that will grant lucky spinners a potentially life-changing jackpot win. Plus, your journey through the mystical oriental world comes will wild substitutions and a free spins round that can lead to wins of up to 1,500 times your bet on a single spin.
Arabian Nights is a progressive video slot with five reels, three rows and 10 fixed paylines. Wins are awarded for two to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Available on desktop and mobile devices, you can bet from 0.10 to 200 credits per spin. The game has medium volatility with an RTP of 95.62% which includes 5% for the jackpot contribution.
The simple yet fitting visuals date back to 2005 when the slot was initially released. That has remained virtually unchanged when NetEnt converted the game from Flash to HTML5 format in 2019. A typical oriental bazar overlooking minarets on a star-studded night is in the background of the elegant game window. The soundtrack is mainly the usual reel noises.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the cad royals from 9 through to A, awarding 7.5x to 15x your stake for a single five of a kind. They are followed by camels, hats, tents, shoes and swords in oriental style. Hit five on a line to win 15x to 200x your stake.
The Wild symbol is a turbaned sultan with an impressive-looking moustache and a big grin, holding up a sparkling red jewel and the key to winning the jackpot while also performing the usual substitution duties. All wins where the wild is part of will be doubled. A genie lamp acts as the scatter. Two to five landing on a spin will pay 2x to 500x your stake.
Arabian Nights Slot Features
The game was one of the first progressive slots coming from the Swedish studios of NetEnt and proved to be a hit with players. It has paid out millions in massive jackpots with the top win coming in at €4.8 million in 2010. While it was briefly tossed to the curb due to its Flash format, it has made a comeback in late 2019 after NetEnt converted it to HTML5.
While chasing the jackpot is probably the main attraction, Arabian Nights has a decent base game with high line pays and a bonus round. Hitting three or more scatters anywhere on the reels will trigger 15 free spins, which can be indefinitely retriggered. All wins excluding the jackpot are tripled throughout the feature.
To win the jackpot, players have to land a 5-of-a-kind with Wild Sultan symbols on any paylines. Any trigger will have to be confirmed by NetEnt before it is made available for withdrawal.
When NetEnt pulled Arabian Nights somewhere at the start of 2019, we thought that would be the last we have seen from this epic progressive slot. They since changed their minds and relaunched it in HTML5 format due to popular demand from the casino community. We can now travel again into a mysterious oriental world chasing that big jackpot.
