Ali Baba’s luck was an enticing game made by Max Win Gaming for Red Tiger that took us on an adventure to the South East to the Arabian Peninsula where we immersed ourselves in the culture and revelled in exciting gameplay.
This time, we’re firing up the magic carpet yet again as we return for another fun filled instalment, this time in the form of Ali Babas Luck Megaways Slot, where the potential and statistics of the first game have been amplified for a truly exciting experience.
Max Win Gaming have teamed up with Red Tiger to utilise their gaming engine for this instalment. Red Tiger have a multitude of Online Slots under their belt, and some of which are considered the best around.
Gonzos Quest Megaways, Leprechaun’s Magic Megaways and many more are shining examples of games made by the developer that prove that their expertise and imagination knows no bounds.
Their games may be hard to bonus, but it’s undeniable that they have massive potential when they do go off.
Will Ali Babas Luck Megaways Slot take on their original game with a Megaways Slot twist prove compelling enough to be considered one of their all-time greats?
In terms of graphics, Ali Babas Luck Megaways Slot hasn’t deviated much from the original game. The room is decorated with lavish flowers and the room leads to the same balcony seen in the previous game.
Graphics are static with no animations to speak of, but it looks like it’s been illustrated to a high level, and the theme all comes together with an exotic, Arabian tune.
There isn’t a huge array of choices when it comes to betting. The lowest option available on Ali Babas Luck Megaways Slot is £0.20, and the highest available option is £4. Those who regularly opt for higher stakes than the max available here may want to look elsewhere.
Regardless of this, the options presented should realistically cover the needs for most. For the symbols, there are 4 high paying symbols and 5 low paying ones.
The high paying symbols are Ali Baba, the Woman, a Vase and a Ring. Low paying symbols are A, K, Q, J & 10. Unfortunately, a Wild symbol is not present in this game.
Ali Babas Luck Megaways Slot works very much like the first one did, with the exception that this game obviously differs with it’s Megaways mechanic.
To start with the differences, Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways Slot now utilises up to 15,625 ways to win, possible when all 5 reels display 5 symbols each.
This obviously is not your standard or traditional Megaways, which normally plays with up to 117,649 ways, but the game has some features to make up for the missing additional ways.
The game also does not feature cascading symbols, instead opting for a more ‘Book of’ style gameplay with expanding symbols.
Like the first game, every winning symbol will unlock an Expanding Golden Symbol for the next spin.
Should you land a sufficient amount of the Golden Symbol next spin, they’ll expand to cover the reel and adopt a ‘pay anywhere’ mechanic where they’ll pay regardless of whether or not they connect on adjacent reels.
Triggering an expanding symbol will require landing at least 2 high paying, or 3 low paying symbols. Should multiple symbols result in a winning combination, then multiple Expanding Golden Symbols will unlock for the next spin.
This ‘Book of’ style gameplay accompanied with the Megaways mechanic makes for exciting gameplay, especially because Golden Symbols can trigger within the base game.
There’s definitely some potential for some big base hits here, especially if you hit a lot of premium golden symbols.
3 Treasure Chest Scatter symbols will trigger the Lucky round in Ali Babas Luck Megaways Slot, which is a wheel that will award between 4 – 16 spins to take with you into the Dream Spins Bonus round. Any extra treasure chest above the third will award +4 Dream Spins.
After you spins have been determined, you’ll progress into the Dream Spins where the reels will spin as normal, with the kicker that winning symbols will now trigger Golden Symbols that will persist throughout the entirety of the bonus.
It’s possible that all symbols could convert to Golden ones, which could well result in some insane wins. It’s a decent feature, in some other games that adopt this style of play your ‘special symbol’ is pre-determined, and sometimes even re-triggering will not bag you an extra symbol.
Dream Spins is where Ali Babas Luck Megaways Slot shows its true potential.
This Book of style gameplay coupled with Megaways may not be the first time we’ve seen this kind of game, but no matter how you look at it it’s still exciting.
Ali Babas Luck Megaways Slot can produce fourfold the top win that the original game could with a whopping max potential of over 20,000x, and it’s all owing to the addition of Megaways.
With the Expanding Golden Symbols in the Base Game too, it’s plausible that you can expect to see some very nice hits from this game if you’re lucky enough.
There may not be any innovation to speak of in terms of new features we’ve never seen before, but you can’t ignore the potential it holds.
Overall, it’s a decent game with more than decent potential, but among a sea of games just like it, it’s definitely not going to stand out from the others.
Ali Babas Luck Megaways Slot is available to play on most Online Casinos now!
