While many Arabian-themed slots take an Aladdin and/or genie-themed approach, NetEnt's Arabian Nights is a little different. It is literally a game that's about what nighttime would be like in ancient Arabian times. The background noise consist of cricket sounds and an animal call, rather than the type of Middle Eastern tunes that you might expect from a game like this. And the background sounds are a good representation of Arabian Nights slots because it's pretty basic. But there are a couple of special features worth discussing, which you can read about in this review.
One drawback to this slot is that you don't have many betting options. The coin value remains fixed at €0.50, and you can't change the amount of coins per payline. Instead the only option that you do have remains playing 1-10 paylines per spin. This makes your betting range €0.50-€5.00, which should satisfy many players. However, the low rollers who like to bet €0.01-€0.10 per spin might want to look elsewhere.
The symbols heavily stick to the Arabian theme, with a camel, fez, tent, pointed shoes, sabers, golden lamp and prince on the reels. In the background, you'll see a palace with a nighttime background.
There aren't really many special features to speak of in Arabian Nights. There's a progressive jackpot, which you win by getting five princes in a payline. If the progressive jackpot isn't worth much at the time, you are at least guaranteed 10,000 coins. The prince also acts as the wild symbol, doubling any winning combination that it appears in.
The golden lamp is the scatter symbol, and it multiplies wins by 2x, 5x, 10x and 500x when you get 2, 3, 4 or 5 lamps respectively on the reels. Three or more golden lamps will earn you 15 free spins, which carry a 3x multiplier for winning combinations.
Arabian Nights' RTP is 95.6%, which puts it slightly below average compared to other NetEnt games. From an overall perspective, it would be nice if this game had more betting options and special features. But if you like the theme, then you might get a little entertainment out of Arabian Nights slot.
