10001 Nights slot review
10001 Nights slot by Red Tiger takes us into a warm evening in the ancient middle east on a temple balcony laced with the finest silk and lanterns. We spin to the appropriate gentle music and sounds with all the finery of this palace displayed on the reels and unlike Netent's Arabian Nights slot, it's not childish in appearance, more like Microgaming's Arabian Rose or Red Tiger's Ali Baba's Luck Megaways with distinctly non-cartoonish artwork. So can it be desert delight for our bankroll, or will it turn to sand before us?
On the reels...
There are 20 lines to win on over 5 reels of 4 rows on 10001 Nights slot with symbols appearing single and stacked. The 5-of-a-kind pays are Princess Wild (which can appear randomly stacked via a modifier) at 55x bet, Sultan 40x, Tiger 8x, Camel 6x, Vase 4x, Shoes 3x with four card suits paying 2.5 down to 1x for a full line. You have Palace scatters on all reels and finally Magic Lamps which when landing will disappear and allow symbols to replace them from above. These are what progressively fill the lamps up above the right side of the grid.
Each Magic Lamp will send out vapour and this helps fill the four lamps above the reels. You need 6+7+8+9 Magic Lamps to fill the 4 lamps from left to right and switch on their respective random modifiers in the order below. As you open each lamp, less Magic Lamps will appear on the grid and if you change stake you lose any progress.
Imperial Spin - low-value symbols removed from reels for possible big wins.
Random Wilds - individual tiles are replaced by Wilds
Multi Pick - pick a card which will reveal a multiplier to be applied to next win.
Mega Wilds - full reel stacked Wilds are added to the grid.
You needs 3, 4 or 5 scatters for 8, 10 or 12 spins respectively. You can retrigger with 3 to 5 scatters for 6 to 8 more spins. As you may have guessed, frequent modifiers occur in these spins of the types you have already unlocked. Red Tiger tell us over 10,000x has been hit in testing, so some potential here!
10001 Nights slot has a RTP of 95.73% and looks as average as that figure, although it plays smoothly and isn't draining to listen to. Base game wins are poor until you unlock the modifiers and this is a big drawback in my opinion. The free games are where all the action lies and can pay some good totals depending on the modifiers you get, but these can be hard to trigger until you've lit those lamps. I wouldn't say there's 10001 reasons not to play this, but there's no magic carpet here...Review by Gamingslots
