Sahara Nights slot review (Yggdrasil)

Sahara Nights is also an Aladdin slot. It is also one of the most breathtakingly stunning slots we have ever played. We think that Yggdrasil, together with Quickspin, are the two game providers who know best how to make elegant and sophisticated slots. The animations, the colours, the beautifully designed characters, you name it, it’s all awe-inspiring.

Aladdin slots, based on the well-known “One Thousand and One Nights” tales, are trendy

Slots based on fairy tales have always been popular. It is not difficult to explain why. Fairy tales are made for entertainment and give you a perfect way to take you to a completely different world.

Yggdrasil likes to take its inspiration from fairy tales. You can see that many Yggdrasil slots have fairy tale themes. Just look at, for example, slots as, The Beauty and the Beast or Wilhelm Tell.

Gameplay and Features of the Sahara Nights slot

Yggdrasil often makes rather complicated slots, with sophisticated bonus features and lots of boosters.

Trolls Bridge 2, released just a month ago, is a perfect example of that.

We were surprised to find out that Sahara Nights is everything but a complex slot.

The game has 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols. It has 20 fixed paylines.

Both the recreational or starting slot player and the high roller get what they want with Sahara Nights: the bets start as low as $€0.10, and the maximum bet is $€100 per spin.

What is the theoretical RTP, the variance and the maximum win of the Sahara Nights slot?

The theoretical payout percentage is 96.2%. It is around the average of what an online slot pays out.

Yggdrasil does not specify what the maximum win can be. We see that it is also possible to spin five scatters, which gives you 1,000x the total bet. In the free spins, it is also possible to get more sizeable wins in a row. Nevertheless, we would be astonished to see wins exceeding the 1,000x the total bet.

We qualify the variance of Sahara Nights to be medium. It is possible to get some massive wins of say 500x the bet, but certainly not the life-changing wins of say 5,000x or 10,000x the total bet.

Symbols and payouts

The famous Magic Lamp is wild and folds out (expands) over the entire reel if it leads to a winning combination.

The most wanted premium symbol is the grumpy looking Sultan as it is the highest paying symbol. If you manage to spin 5 Sultans active payline, you get a hefty payout of 175 x the total bet.

The other premium symbols are the Sultan, Jasmine’s beautiful daughter, and her secret love Aladdin. These symbols award you with a prize of 25 x and 20 x the bet, respectively, if you get a 5-of-a-kind.

All other symbols, including four coloured gems, are the low symbols. These symbols pay out a win of 2 x to 7 x the total bet for each 5-of-a-kind.

Free Spins Bonus – expanding and sticky wilds and more free spins with scatters

If you manage to spin 3, 4 or 5 free spin symbols (the purple book with gems), you activate the free spins.

  • 2 scatters yields you 2 free spins (only during free spins)
  • 3 Scatters award free spins plus a prize of 1x the bet.
  • 4 Scatters yields you 12 free spins plus a prize of 10x the bet.
  • 5 scatters are worth 16 free spins plus an award of a staggering 1,000x the total bet.

During the free spins, it helps if you manage to get wild symbols as soon as possible. Why? Because they expand to cover an entire reel and become sticky in the process.

If you get two or even three wilds reels with several free spins left, you can imagine that it can become more than just lucrative.

The wilds only occur on reels 2, 3 and 4. This feature reminds us of Sakura Fortune, another stunning slot, however, released by Quickspin.

Our verdict on the Sahara Nights slot

Sahara Nights is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful new slots of 2019. Unfortunately, in terms of gameplay, it is somewhat disappointing.

Sometimes Yggdrasil’s slots are full of complex features so that you can become confused. Don’t worry: that is not the case with Sahara Nights.

On the contrary.

It’s all a bit simple and monotonous. We expect that most players will become bored pretty quickly, despite the slot’s fantastic look and feel.

3.5 out of 5 stars.
