Ali Baba and The 40 Thieves Slot Overview
Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves slot game is based on the well-known story from the Tales of the Arabian Nights. Ali Baba battles against a gang of thieves who store their loot in a cave which only opens to the magical words Open Sesame. This story has become the subject of many movies and pantomimes, and now Leander has produced a great slot game featuring this famous legend.
The background to the Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves slot is a desert oasis, with sand dunes and a water urn next to the reels. There is also a cave with a door, which is the one that opens with the words Open Sesame.
The symbols are well designed, drawn in an amusing cartoon like style. You will see a Camel and a golden Scarab Beetle, a Snake appearing from a basket and the Snake Charmer’s Pipe, a crooked Dagger, a Drum and a Monkey. You will also see Ali Baba of course, and the Chief of the forty thieves. The sound is Arabian style music, and enhances the story line.
The Expanding Wilds Effect
The Wild symbol in Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves is the sexy figure of the slave girl Morgiana, and as such can replace any other symbol in the game to complete a winning combination, apart from the Scatter symbol or the bonus symbol. If you land the Wild Morgiana anywhere on a reel it can expand and cover all the symbols on that reel. This will give you plenty of chances to create more winning combinations. The Scatter is a Bag of Gold and Jewels, and the bonus symbol is an Urn. The Scatter symbol pays a cash prize when three, four or five appear on the reels.
When you find five of the Ali Baba symbol on an active pay line you will win 2,500 coins. Five of the Thief symbols will pay out 800 coins.
Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves has five reels and twenty pay lines, and is produced by Leander Games.
Two Bonus Rounds of Benefits
The Gold or Bandit bonus round is activated by landing three of the bonus Urns on reels two, three and four. You will be awarded between one and three Ali Protections. Now you can pick six vases from the ones you see in front of you, and get a cash reward. An Ali Protection will give you an extra Life if you pick a Monkey instead of Gold.
There is also an Open Sesame free spins game in Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves, and this is triggered by landing the Free spins symbol on reels one, three and five. You then have to pick your risk. There are three choices you can make, either low risk, fewer spins and lower multipliers or high risk, more free spins and bigger multipliers. Once you have decided, you are presented with a new screen of a cave containing a number of Treasure Chests. You select six of them, and each will give you a number of free spins and a multiplier to fill a meter. If you go over the pre set maximum, however, you will only receive ten free spins and no multiplier. One advantage to this round is that Morgiana populates the first reel during the free spins, which gives extra Wilds.
With Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves, Leander has produced a slot game everyone will be able to play and enjoy.
