Play ‘N Go’s Fortunes of Ali Baba Slot Review

Fortunes of Ali Baba: Demo

Try and part a band of Arabian brigands from their loot in the Fortunes of Ali Baba slot. Based on the famous One Thousand and One Nights folk tales, it’s a 5 reel, 20 payline game from Play ‘n GO. Trigger the feature and you’ll progress to a 5-level pick me bonus where you can pick to win cash prizes of up to 100 x bet or trigger the free spins which come with walking wilds. Play this high variance slot on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.

Open sesame

The design in Fortunes of Ali Baba is simply done. The reels are set against a cave backdrop. There you’ll find A to 10 royals as well as objects relating to the story. These include bowls of spices, gemstones and a medallion. The best standard symbol is Ali Baba’s dagger. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these in combination for a payout of 2, 4 or 14 times your total bet.

Wild wins of up to 250 x bet per payline

Ali Baba is the wild. He replaces all the standard symbols. Land 3, 4 or 5 wilds in a line, starting from the leftmost reel and you’ll pocket an award of 5, 10 or 250x your total stake.

Den of Thieves Bonus

The Den of Thieves Bonus feature is triggered by landing Morgiana the slave girl on reels 1 and 5 on the same spin. You’ll then head to a new screen where you’ll start a multi-level pick me bonus.

Pick pots to win instant prizes or activate the Free Spins feature.  If you uncover a cash prize from the pots, you’ll progress to the next level:

  • At level 1 you can win up to 10x your total bet.
  • You’re guaranteed to progress to level 2 where each pick can also deliver an award of up to 10x your total bet, a free spins trigger or a collect which ends the feature.
  • The same combination follows in level 3.
  • At level 4, the prizes increase to up to 100 x bet alongside the collect and free spins.
  • At level 5, it’s free spins or collect.

Free spins with walking wilds

If you land the free spins from the Den of Thieves Bonus feature, you’ll start the Free Spins feature with 8 free spins – you’ll also get 1 Ali Baba wild symbol hitting on every one of them. Joining the action here is an extra symbol, the thieves wild.

If a thieves wild hits, a respin is awarded with the thieves wild moving towards the Ali Baba wild. This leaves a trail of wilds to increase your winning chances. Land Morgiana on reels 1 and 5 during the feature to add 2 more free spins to your total. Each retrigger also increases a multiplier which is active for the rest of the feature.

Win up to 9,968 x bet

It’s not quite as fiery as some Play ‘n GO slots but Fortunes of Ali Baba is still a volatile proposition. The base game is pretty standard but the Free Spins feature can be well worth landing if you get a good combination of instant bonuses and a free spins trigger.

Top prizes are 9,968 x total bet – the RTP is high at 96.89% too. It’s nicely designed too. Put that together and you have a very tidy take on a classic slot theme. If you want to win big in the free spins, getting Ali Baba wilds on the first reel with Thieves Wilds on reel 5 will lead to a trail of wilds across all the reels.

Play ‘n GO has developed a large number of quality slot games – the vampire themed Wild Blood 2 or the dog racing inspired Wildhound Derby are 2 titles worth looking into.
