Arabian Nights Slot Machine Review

arabian-nights-slotArabian Nights video slot is a progressive jackpot game from the geniuses at Net Entertainment. The theme is set in the Islamic world of the 9th century. As the title may lead you to presume, you will be seeing many of the famous symbols made famous by tales of Arabia.


Arabian Nights is a 5 reel, 3 row slot with 10 pay lines. The maximum number of coins played on 1 spin is 10 coins, with 1 allotted coin per pay line. The total bet for a maximum spin would be $5. You can play as little as 1 coin and 1 pay line if you prefer to start of small.

The game has a few bonus features that can be rewarding when they land on the reels. The first is the wild symbol that triggers the jackpot and also acts a bonus multiplier. The second is the scatter symbol that awards free spins as well as bonus multipliers.

The most lucrative feature in Arabian Nights is the progressive jackpot. The jackpot grows each time someone plays a spin for real money on the game. A portion of each coin spent goes towards the prize pool and will trigger when a specific set of symbols land on the reels.


The common, lower paying symbols are 9s through Kings. To activate a win with any of these symbols, you must hit 3 in a row from left to right on the reels.

The higher paying symbols are various theme based icons of Arabia. In order form lowest paying to highest, they are as follows: Camel, a hat with tassels, Tent, Pointy Green Shoes and a Knife. All these symbols activate a win when 2 or more land on the reels with the exception of the camel which requires 3.

Wild Symbol

The wild symbol in Arabian Knights is an Arabian Knight (that’s Knight with a K!) Wild symbols replace all others except the scatter. Two or more wilds will also produce a bonus multiplier of 2 times your wager on that spin. The only exception being, a winning combination made up of all wild symbols.

The wild symbols also award extra coins depending on how many land on the reels. Two wilds get you 10 extra coins, three net an extra 200, four awards you with 2,500 and five will win you the jackpot or 10,000, whichever is more.

Scatter Symbol

A genie represents the scatter symbol and will be the basis for the free spin bonus rounds. Land 3 or more scatter symbols on the reels and activate a bonus round of 15 free spins. Each win during this round will be multiplied by 3 as well.

Scatter symbols also multiply regular spins if 2 or more land on the reels. Two scatter symbols will double a winning spin. Three will multiply a win by 5. Four scatter symbols gives you a 20x multiplier and five will give out an amazing 500x multiplier!


The graphics are nothing to write home about but, they are clean and crisp. The background of the slot features iconic temples on a starry night.

The ambient sound will make you feel like you’re in an old Middle Eastern village. You will mainly hear crickets with an overlay of sounds that can only be described as coming from an Islamic mosque.


As with any Net Entertainment game, the controls and game play are simple and clear. You have all the controls you need easily laid out at the bottom of the game screen. The buttons are large and bright which makes using them a breeze.

Along with the standard, max bet, bet level, bet lines and coin value buttons, you also have advanced features to customize you’re playing experience.

Auto play functions let you play up to 2,000 spins with a pre-determined number of lines and coins for hands free slot playing. You can also choose to turn the sound on or off with the click of a button.

Overall, Arabian Nights will not overwhelm you in the graphics department, but it will certainly give you more than enough bang for your buck. The progressive jackpot and the payout multipliers easily make Arabian Nights a must play for anyone looking to get the most value out of a video slot.
