Arabian Nights is a popular Video Slot from Net Entertainment, and this (funnily enough) Arab-themed slot game is one of the software providers progressive jackpot games.
Arabian Nights features 5-reels and 10 pay lines, and is unique (and often rarely played) due to the fact that players must stake £5 per spin. This is generally too much for a typical Video Slot player, but the larger wagering requirement is due to the progressive jackpot, and interestingly, you can’t stake higher than £5 either; Net Entertainment stated they wanted all players to have an equal chance of winning, and Arabian Nights is what they came up with.
While the game isn’t one of Net Entertainment’s most popular titles, it is still a relatively commonly-played game, and as such, Net Entertainment have developed the game to be fully mobile-optimized, available to play on most new-ish devices with a strong Internet connection.
If you manage to land three or more of the Aladdin Lamp scatter symbol anywhere in view on the reels, you’ll be awarded 15 free-spins. You’ll also receive an instant cash prize of 5X your stake. Land 4 scatter symbols, and you’ll enjoy a 20X stake win, with 5 scatter symbols paying a whopping 500X.
The free-spins will then begin, and during the bonus, all your wins will be subject to a 3X multiplier, leading to bigger wins, especially when 4-of-a-kind and 5-of-a-kind pay lines are made. You can also re-trigger the feature, by landing another 3 or more scatter symbols. (During the free-spins, the scatter symbol changes to a lamp, not Aladdin; you can re-trigger twice, which means a total of 45 spins can be won).
The “sex appeal” of Arabian Nights isn’t a free-spins round… it’s the progressive jackpot, and with previous winners taking home multi-million-pound paydays (including a £2.75 Million win in 2014), it’s easy to see why players do choose to wager the £5 per spin, and have a shot at the jackpot.
To scoop the life-changing amount of money, you’ll need to land 5 Arabian Night symbols on a winning pay line. This is important, and worth remembering if you decide to play Arabian Nights, because many players don’t realize you have to land the symbols on a winning pay line – there’s more than one player who thought they’d won the progressive jackpot, only to realize in gross disgust that the symbols weren’t on an active payline, so bear this in mind if you plan on playing.
