Ali Baba is a tale included in the One Thousand and One Nights collection and has been one of the favourite themes of developers. This makes it fitting that Leander Games should humbly present their rendition of this 5 reel, 1 to 20 variable paylines edition that offers you the opportunity to win up to 2,500 gold coins per payline!
Amusing cartoon graphics
With a background of golden desert sand complete with the thieves' cave in the distance this slot is off to a great start! The symbols are cartoon style and work their way up from musical instruments through to trinkets and amusing native animals before you get to the thief leader and Ali Baba. A vase of stolen gold and diamond riches serve as a scatter symbol and no Ali Baba theme would be complete without the beautiful heroine Morgiane. The overall sound effects and music are good and generally reinforce the superior theme of the slot.
Expanding wild that will melt your heart
The beautiful belly dancer Morgiane acts as a wild symbol appearing anywhere on the reels and substitutes for any other symbol except the bonus and free spins symbol. She can expand to cover an entire reel performing her seductive dance which can increase existing payline wins or create entirely new payline wins.
Gold or bandit bonus and free spins bonus features
You have two nice little additions to the slot which make it even more magical! The gold or bandit bonus feature is triggered when three bonus symbols appear anywhere on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reel. You are now inside the thieves' cave and you are presented with the opportunity to choose six vases to reveal and collect the random value of gold inside! Not convinced yet? Well how about the open sesame free spins bonus feature which can be triggered when the symbols appear on reels 1, 3 and 5. Again, you are in the thieves' cave and now asked to decide on your volatility before choosing amongst treasure chests to build free spins and multipliers. This continues until you have exceed the maximum allowable or you have made all your picks.
Entertaining story and fun to play!
You have the option of playing Ali Baba with as little as 1 payline and as much as 20 though we suggest you use all 20 to maximise your pleasure. The variance in this one is low to medium. Line bets range from €0.01 all the way up to €5 so you can wager as little as €0.01 and as much as €100. The developer states the theoretical return to player (RTP) at 95.07%. The theme and graphics are terrific and definitely not intended to be taken too seriously as evident by the goofy dancing monkey, nonchalant camel and hypnotic cobra. If you are a fan of the theme coupled with some great features to boot, I definitely think this slot is worth a try!
