The Ali Baba’s Luck slot has 5 reels and each one is 3 symbols high. It uses traditional paylines with 10 in total, playing from left to right.
The theme for this slot is the Arabian Nights. The background depicts a Persian palace, with a colour scheme of purples and golds. The main symbols are what looks like a Persian king and queen and a treasure chest.
Wild – There is no Wild symbol in this slot.
Bonus – The Bous symbol is a “Treasure Chest”. You need to land 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels to trigger the Dream Spins Bonus feature.
Expanding symbol – When you land a win, the symbol that formed it will be highlighted in the meter above the reel. It will remain highlighted for one more spin and if the same symbol forms a win on that subsequent spin then they will expand to fill the reel and increase your win. You can have more than one symbol highlighted on a spin if you land 2 separate payline wins with different symbols.
Dream Spins – If you trigger the Dream Spins you will be given an initial 4 spins before you spin the Lucky Round Reel once. This will give you additional spins, between 2 and 16, on top of the 4 initial spins. During the Dream Spins, once you highlight a symbol that will then go on to expand when it forms a win it will remain highlighted throughout the feature, meaning it will always expand when it forms a win and not just on the subsequent spin.
Ali Baba’s Luck is all about the expanding symbol feature. You will find yourself highlighting symbols in the meter regularly but the wait to trigger the expanding feature will not be as consistent. However, when it does land it can reward you with big wins. The Bonus feature is essentially a Free Spins feature and one that you are relying on getting additional spins for in the Lucky Round Spin. If you can get on a roll with the expanding feature then it can pay out well. The house edge is above 4%, which means it is too high and there is not a lot going out outside of the expanding symbol reel. It’s worth a look, but I doubt you’ll want to stick around for too long.
