A quick look reveals that Sahara Nights is heavily inspired by the classic Aladdin story. There are mystical palaces, mysterious magic genies, the famous magic lamp, and even the expected heroic street rat. It is all brought to life in suitably cartoon, yet still wonderfully colourful and enchanting artwork. Plus, of course, the amazing visuals are backed up by exciting and interesting gameplay mechanics.
Summon The Genie
Sahara Nights is set in an enchanted palace, which is represented by the excellent background art behind the reels. In the palace players will find the beautiful princess, a portly sultan, who is her father, and the dashing street rat that we all know and love. These familiar faces are accompanied by an array of stunning gems, all of which come together to form one of the most colourful play grids in a pokies game to date.
But it is the genie that is the most well known character, and he seems to be mysteriously absent. That’s because he is hiding in his magic lamp, which acts as the game’s Wild symbol. Get him to leave the lamp by landing it on reels 2, 3, or 4. If this is achieved, the genie will be triggered and make his appearance, completing a matching sequence for the player. Or to put it another way; the game features Expanding Wilds.
During Free Spins, Wilds also become sticky, improving the chances of winning matches being created. The genie really is the best friend of the player.
Free Spins And More
Speaking of the Free Spins symbols, they are where the big money can be found in Sahara Nights. If 3 Free Spins symbols are matched, they grant 8 spins, as well as an instant cash bonus. Matching 4 will grant 12 spins and an instant bonus. The big jackpot comes when 5 Free Spins are matched, which grants 16 spins and massive jackpot amount.
Sahara Nights is out now at all online and mobile casinos powered by Yggdrasil software and the genie is waiting to help players load their pockets with cash. If the initial response to the pokie is anything to go by, which has been resoundingly positive, this will be another smash hit for Yggdrasil.
