Arabian Nights - Video Slot

Arabian Nights

If you already not familiar with the Arabian Nights slot, you should know that it is absolutely one of the most popular progressive jackpot video slots. By many, it is actually considered as the best online progressive slot and rightfully so.

Arabian Nights was launched in 2006 and has stood the test of time and we believe that the main reason for this is that the max bet is €5 but can make you a millionaire. The game is quite simple with few basic features and has created many millionaires over the years.

The game features Free Spin mode and you are awarded 15 free spins when you get 3 or more Scatter symbols. In this game the scatter symbol is the golden lamp that looks just like Aladdin’s lamp. The golden lamps can in general bring some nice wins as two lamps on a winning bet line will double the wins, three lamps triple the wins, four lamps give 20x the wins, and 5 lamps will multiply the winnings 500 times!
During the Free Spin mode, all wins are tripled and we were happy to see that you can get additional free spins while in the free spin mode. On our second free spin run, we got 3 more scatter symbols and we had 30 free spins in total that were very rewarding :)

The Wild symbol in the game is an Arabic man and it substitutes all symbols except for the Scatter (golden lamp). The Wild is also a symbol that gives large wins so stay on the lookout.

Jackpot Description

The Arabian Nights has grown in popularity and has a loyal following of players. Every time somebody plays a spin on Arabian Nights, a fraction of the bet, around 4%, is added to the Progressive Jackpot. This has made the progressive jackpot grow relatively fast when compared to other progressives out there. You can always see the current amount of the Jackpot in the upper right corner where it says “Super Jackpot.”

The key to the Jackpot is the Wild symbol; the Arabic man. If you get 5 Wild symbols on one bet line and you have all 10 bet lines active, you win the Jackpot! It is very important to have all ten bet lines active because otherwise the win will not be the Jackpot win, it will be 10,000 coins and that is €5,000 because the coin value is fixed at €0.50.

Over the years the Jackpot amount has varied in size and the largest win so far has been €4.8 million and was won in March 2010. Here below are some other known Arabian Night jackpot wins. As you can see the, the Jackpot can hit anytime but most often over €900,000.

Arabian Nights Game Rules

Welcome to Arabian Nights! Information about the game and a description of how it is played is provided below.

About the Game

Arabian Nights is a 5-reel, 10-line, video slot featuring wild and scatter symbols, and free bonus spins. The minimum bet is 1 coin on one bet line, and maximum bet is 1 coin on all 10 bet lines (total 10 coins).

Only the highest win on an enabled bet line is paid. Combinations win only if in succession from leftmost to right, except scatter symbols. Simultaneous wins on different bet lines are added.

Winning combinations of symbols are displayed in the paytable available in the bottom left corner of the video screen. The Arabic man is a wild symbol that can substitute for any other symbol to complete a winning bet line, except for scatters and Jackpot wins. Wins are doubled on bet lines with wild symbols.

The oil lamp is a scatter symbol. Wins with scatter symbols pay the multiplier (displayed in the paytable) multiplied by the total bet (for example, 5 scatter symbols pay 500 multiplied by the total bet). 3 to 5 scatters award 15 free spins. During bonus spins, all wins are tripled, except for
Jackpot wins.

The Jackpot can only be won if playing for MAX BET and the reels come to a stop with 5 Arabic men symbols displayed on any bet line.

Jackpot rules

The Jackpot is a progressive jackpot, where every time the game is played by a player a portion of the bet is added to the Jackpot.

  • Progressive Jackpot wins are subject to verification by the Casino Operator and the Software Supplier. All decisions are final and no correspondence will be entered into.
  • Jackpot values displayed in the game are delayed by up to 30 seconds. On exceptionally rare occasions, it may happen that the jackpot is won by another player during those 30 seconds, in which case the win is the new re-seeded jackpot which may be smaller. However, in most cases the 30 second delay results in a higher jackpot win value.
  • The Progressive Jackpot amount paid out is the Progressive Jackpot value on the casino server when a jackpot is won. Every effort is made to ensure that the Progressive Jackpot value displayed in the game is the same as the one on the casino server.
  • The jackpot counter might be displayed in a currency other than that you are playing in. If you win a jackpot and are playing casino games with a different currency, the amount won is converted to the currency in which you are playing and is added to your account.

The Casino Operator and the Software Supplier reserve the right to change or waive the Jackpot rules at any time and for any period.

Please Note: The payout of the jackpot is subject to the terms and conditions of the gaming site. For more information refer to the gaming website.
