Fortunes of Ali Baba slot review
Fortunes of Ali Baba slot by Play'n Go brings us to the medieval middle east and promises all kinds of magic. The transparent reels lie over a cave entrance where these treasures supposedly lie and we get the music you would expect from such a theme as we spin. Leander came up with a reasonable slot called Ali Baba many years ago now and if you like this subject Microgaming's Arabian Rose wasn't bad and slightly better than Pragmatic's Aladdin and the Sorcerer. So will we reveal any of Ali's fortune or will our bankroll end up with the 40 thieves?
On The Reels...
We have single symbols, 20 fixed lines and a 5 by 3 grid on Fortunes of Ali Baba slot. The 5-of-a-kind pays are Ali Baba Wild 250x, Dagger 14x, Food Bowls, Pendant or Jewels 7x, Ace 3.5x with four lower card values all paying 1.75x for a full line. You have Princess scatters on reels 1 and 5 and that's pretty much it for now.
Den of Thieves
Land the Princess scatter on reels 1 and 5 to enter the cave full of jars. Pick one to reveal cash amounts or a free games trigger. You get one pick from 6 Jars are the start, then 5, then 4 and so-on. Your feature ends if the Green Thief is revealed.
You get 8 free games with one Ali Baba Wild placed on the grid every spin. Shuld you then land any of the new Thief Wilds then you will trigger a respin with the Wilds held but the Thief Wilds will all make a trail towards the Ali Baba Wild, leaving more Wilds in their wake before the reels stop. You get 2 extra spins for a retrigger which also increases the bonus multiplier by 1x from that point onwards. Play'n Go tell us we can win up to 10,000 bet in this bonus.
Fortunes of Ali Baba slot is easy on the eye, soothing on the ears and has decent animations and a a RTP of 96.12%. Alas this slot fails one the one thing I hate most on games, the mixing of the free games bonus with crappy cash values and thus not guaranteeing the free games which after all is where nearly all the potential lays. The free games can pay well when you do get them, get a few retriggers and you'll be into 3 figures quite easily. If it wasn't for the bonus trigger format, I'd be on my flying carpet straight back again...Review by Gamingslots
