Back to Top.
Like other Mr Spin slots, the game has five reels and 15 adjustable paylines. The slot caters for all types of players, as spins start at just 2p. This is a stand out feature for most Mr Spin slots, as it helps them to be accessible for all budgets. If you’re more of a high roller however, you can play for a whopping £95 per spin, which over 15 paylines gives you a huge total bet of £1,425! As a medium variance slot, the game pays out quite frequently, but if you’re thinking about playing with a large amount of money, then be careful as you can sometimes end up on a streak of empty spins.
The game offers an auto-spin feature, which allows players to sit back and watch the action unfold. You can allow the game to play on your behalf for anything between 10 to 99 spins. Fortunately, you can set the auto-spins to stop if your balance falls below a certain amount, and also if a single win exceeds a set amount too.
Arabian Nights has the usual 9 to Ace symbols, of which five Aces will bring in the biggest win at 250x your wager. The two higher paying symbols are the belly dancers, with one offering a 300x multiplier and the other offering a 500x multiplier for 5 of a kind. The jackpot symbol is also a belly dancer, and 5 of her kind will see you take home the jackpot that currently stands at £2,819.15.
Like all of the slots available at Mr Spin, Arabian Nights has a couple of bonus features up its sleeve to keep everyone entertained. The Wild symbols are illustrated by a man who we presume, from his villainous appearance, is Jafar.
Wild symbols will substitute any other tile to create a winning payline. 5 Wilds on a payline offers the highest multiplier of the game, which is 2,000x your bet. You cannot win the progressive jackpot using a wild, however any combination of 5 jackpot and wild symbols will pay out 300x.
The free spins scatter symbols present us with Aladdin himself, and if three or more are found anywhere on the reels, you’ll be awarded a certain amount of free spins. 3, 4, and 5 free spins symbols award 5, 7 and 9 free spins respectively. Free spin will use the last bet amount and number of paylines played.
As with all games by the brilliant InTouch Games team, Arabian Nights performs flawlessly on mobile. It’s completely optimized for the smaller screen, with eye catching colours, clever animation and a backing track that fits the theme.
For all the detail packed into the slot, it’s a pleasant surprise that it weighs in at under 60 MB! If your phone’s anything like mine, we all know the struggle for storage is real, but it’s small footprint means it won’t leave you deleting any precious photos! It’s available for free download for both Android and iOS users. iPhone customers can find it directly in the App store, and Android users can get the game sent to them by SMS message.
In terms of performance the game passes with flying colours, however we’ve got a slight issue with some of the thematic choices! We’re not sure since when well endowed belly dancers have been part of the classic Aladdin tale, and we’re even more perturbed by their sad and uncomfortable expressions. However, that being said, no one in this game looks particularly happy – even the Genie shoots you stern looks from time to time. We think the game could be improved with a little more humour — crack us a smile, Mr Spin!
As always, we’ve saved the best for last, and it’s now time to introduce you to the incredible Three Wishes mini game feature. The feature is triggered by collecting two or more lamp symbols, naturally. The more symbols you collect in the base game, however, the higher the multipliers on offer in the bonus round.
The bonus game is a simple spin of a wheel, where three different multipliers will appear. The amazing thing, however, is that you cannot lose! If you’ve activated the bonus game, you’re guaranteed to come away with three multipliers — how rare is that!?
The multipliers that appear depend on how many lamps you triggered the game with. For triggering the game with two lamps, you’ll receive multipliers of up to 260x. Three lamps gives you up to 350x your bet, and 4 and 5 lamps give you up to 610x and 1,070x respectively. Now imagine if you’d put that £95 bet on!
There’s one extra twist to the game that also allows you to double your win! Each multiplier on the bonus reels is colour, and if all three multipliers show up the same colour, you’ll walk away with double!
Arabian Nights is a fantastic slot that will appeal to all sorts of different players. We love the free spins on offer, and we’re blown away by the fact the bonus game guarantees a win!
The progressive jackpot and the huge bet sizes really do up the ante, but we’re also sure more casual players will enjoy the game too. Although there’s nothing very innovative within this slot and no unique mechanics, it should be mentioned that this game is exclusively available at Mr Spin Casino – you won’t find it anywhere else.
As if you didn’t have reason enough to give it a try, you can actually do so completely free! Mr Spin casino are handing out 25 free spins to every new member – no deposit required – see, you didn’t even need to rub a lamp to make your dreams come true.
