Gameplay & Bonus Features
As with the majority of other slot games, symbols in Sahara Nights can be divided between low-paying icons and high-paying icons.
For the lower symbols, the game has colorful gemstones. There are four of them total: blue, green, red and yellow. All of them share the same maximum payout of 2x for 5-of-a-kind.
When it comes to high-value icons, the heroes of Arabian fairy tales will appear on the screen in their full glory. You will encounter Aladdin, Sultan and Princess. Thematic items like swords and cups are also included in this category.
The Sultan symbol will pay you out the most out of a bunch. For five identical symbols on a winning payline, you will earn 175x your bet. Moreover, if you manage to fill the whole screen with Sultan icons, you can get the maximum earnings of 3,068x.
Sahara Nights has both Wild and Scatter icons. A wish-granting Genie takes the role of a Wild icon in this game. It can only appear on the reels 2, 3 and 4. The main role of a Wild is to substitute for any other regular symbol in the game. There is also a little bonus to it too, which we will talk about more later.
Scatters on other hand are represented by a Storybook symbol. It can’t be replaced by a Wild and landing enough of it will activate the game’s Free Spins Mode.
Everytime a Wild is a part of a winning combination, it becomes stacked and fills the entire reel. This can result in some huge payouts. It is even possible to get three reels covered in Wilds at once!
Free Spins Feature can be triggered by landing 3-5 Storybook Scatters with a single spin. You will immediately start with 8, 12 or 16 Free Spins to play with, depending on the number of Scatters you got. What’s more, you will also get a payout boost during the Free Spins Mode of 1x, 10x, or 1000x your stake.
Genie Wilds are also present during this feature, but they work a bit differently here. They still expand in the same way as in the Base Game but in Free Spins Mode they also become sticky.
After you form a winning combo with a Wild, the stacked reel remains in place throughout the rest of the spins. And if you manage to fill the three middle reels with Genie Wilds, you will receive 2 extra Free Spins.
It is also possible to gain more spins by landing more Scatters. Two Storybooks will earn you 2 Free Spins and 3, 4 or 5 Scatters will award you between 8-16, just like they do upon the Bonus activation.
