Aladdin’s Legacy Slot
The tale of Aladdin is perhaps the best known of the ‘Tales of the Arabian Knights’, although it is a little known fact that this story was only added to the collection in the 18th century.
The opening sequence to this slot is particularly impressive, showing Aladdin swooping into a golden city on his flying carpet, before standing at the entrance of a cave, where he unlocks the combination to reveal the golden lamp.
How to Win on Aladdin’s Legacy
The wild symbol is certainly the one you’ll want to see dominating the reels, as it will substitute for any other symbol apart from the free spin scatter. This symbol shows Aladdin on his flying carpet. As well as being the wild, this is the highest paying on the entire slot, worth an eye-catching 2,500 coins for hitting the maximum 5 in a row.
Aladdin himself, shrouded in a purple head dress, is the highest paying standard symbol, worth 1,500 coins for the full house of 5, while an Oasis pays 750. In general, you’ll need to hit three or more consecutive symbols from left to right on a pay line to land a win, but the wild and the two top paying symbols will also award a win for just 2 in a row. A veiled lady, a market stall and scrolls are joined by the playing card letters A, K, Q and J in completing the standard symbols on the reels.
The final symbol is the golden lamp scatter symbol. Land the minimum 3 anywhere across the reels and you’ll gain 10 free spins, land 4 and you’ll find yourself with 15 free spins, while the maximum 5 scatters wins you an impressive 20 free spins. The free spins round sees a completely different set of symbols frequenting the reels, the slot now almost resembling the popular app ‘Bejeweled’, the reels covered in bright, sparkling, colorful gems.
Despite the large number of spins, you’ve got an added bonus in the round if you can land the ‘cave’ symbol on reel 5. This will now give you the opportunity to open the cave door by selecting a combination of gem stones. Choose the right combination and the cave is opened, where you’ll find the ‘Treasure Room’ bonus. This involves navigating your way towards the treasure, where a big win could come your way – tricky, but the rewards are there if you choose well.
Design and Setup of Aladdin’s Legacy
This Amaya designed slot is particularly easy on the eye, following on in the same vein as the impressive opening sequence. The reels are set against a desert backdrop, the rolling sand dunes featuring golden temples in the distance. The symbols are well designed too, with some nice animation when you land a win. The most impressive animation is perhaps the market stall, where you’ll find a monkey making an appearance, adding a nice element of humor to the game. The accompanying Middle Eastern music really takes you back in time to the days when Aladdin might have roamed the bazaars and temples, although after a while this can become a little repetitive and have you reaching for the mute button.
The game is played out on 5 reels with a set number of 20 pay lines. You’ll choose the stake per credit which ranges from just 2c through to 25c, while you’ll also choose the credits per spin ranging from 20 credits for the 20 lines, moving up through 40, 60, 80 and 100 credits. The spin button is represented by a golden lamp, which impatiently jumps and down if you’re taking your time over hitting it!
Pressing the auto play option brings up a menu showing 5, 10, 20, 50 or 100 spins. One click and you’ll be watching the action unfold while sitting back with your feet up.
Amaya has designed a colorful and engaging slot in Aladdin’s Legacy. The base game is solid and looks good, but it’s the free spins bonus feature that really makes its mark. Firstly, it’s certainly an original touch to have a whole new set of symbols appearing on the reels when landing a feature, while the added extra of the ‘Treasure Room’ bonus was a nice unexpected bonus too. For this feature alone, this slot stands out as one of the best based upon Aladdin.
