Ali Baba’s Luck slot review
Ali Baba's Luck slot by Red Tiger takes us back into the classic middle eastern theme of this popular legend so loved by developers. Leander made a very good game, Ali Baba slot, several years back and Play'n Go had a less good effort with Fortunes of Ali Baba slot as did Microgaming with a decent game from the same set of tales, Arabian Rose slot. The topic should mean plenty of colour, beauty and potential and this game doesn't disappoint with haunting music, a spectacular veranda behind the grid and bright graphics. So can Ali Baba bring us his luck, or will our bankroll fall prey to the forty thieves?
On The Reels...
We have 10 lines, 5 reels and 3 rows on Ali Baba's Luck slot and a Book of Ra Deluxe style mechanic. Indeed, this is where the pay tables come from with the 5-of-a-kind paying 500x for Ali Baba, 200x Princess, 75x Urn or Ring with five card values of either 15 or 10x for a full line. there are now Wilds though because we have an in-play mechanic here. Above the reels, the 9 symbols are lined up in order. Any win will highlight that symbol Gold for the next spin, therefore it will pay as an expanding scatter if it lands the 2 or 3 minimum in view necessary for its respective win.
Your last symbol is a Chest scatter of which you need 3 to spin a wheel which offers 4 to 16 free games or Dream Spins as they are named here. If you only get 4, you even get another spin of the wheel! Each Chest over the 3 will add 4 spins to this total too. You can get a retrigger too. The enhancement is that the Gold symbols don't reset throughout the feature, so the symbols that count as expanding scatters will accumulate as you go. If you start off with 2 or 3 wins in the frist few spins, of different symbols, then it tends to pay quite well.
Ali Baba's Luck slot is colourful and certainly has some potential being a volatile game with a 95.89% RTP. The expanding scatter in the base game is a nice touch and the free games seldom pay poorly. The theme is well executed with nice music and good animations so overall it's a pleasant experience to play. As long as you take care to avoid the thieves, then I say pay Ali Baba a visit if you have the bankroll...Review by Gamingslots
