Based on the adventures of the famous Arabian sailor, Sinbad is a 5 reel, 40 payline video slot from Quickspin. This epic tale comes with plenty of extras including stacked reels, free spins and lots of extra wilds. Set sail on all devices from between 40p and £80 per spin.
A bustling Arabian cityscape forms the backdrop to the action here. On the 3x4x4x4x3 reels you’ll see an array of gemstones plus a cast of characters from the tales of the Thousand and One Nights. They’re joined by a mysterious veiled woman. On each spin, 1 or possibly more symbols will spin in a fully stacked formation, making it possible to create big clusters of matching symbols.
The main feature offer is the Free Spins feature – it’s triggered by landing 3 of the sailing ship scatter on the same spin. You’ll be offered 3 choices here, each 1 of them based on 1 of Sinbad’s better-known voyages:
- Ape Free Spins – choose this and you’ll receive 7 free spins. Look out for the ape here – whenever it appears, it will turn at least 1 or possibly more symbols wild. These wilds stay frozen in position until the free spins are completed.
- Roc Free Spins – 10 free spins are awarded if you pick the mythical bird. Collect diamond symbols during this feature and watch as they turn standard symbols into sticky wilds. 2 or 4 extra free spins are added if you collect 7 or 11 diamonds.
- Snake Free Spins – choose the serpent and you’ll begin with 12 free spins. If the snake symbol hits on reels 1 and 5, a serpent will slide across the reels and leave a trail of wilds in its wake.
As usual for a Quickspin-powered game, the design here is spot on. The base game feels a bit plain but the wild extras on offer certainly enhance the free spins. You can vary the volatility here too. The Ape Free Spins are the highest variance with the Snake Free Spins the lowest and the Roc Free Spins somewhere in the middle. Overall, you can win up to 748 times your total bet on each spin.
If you like a good variety of extras then you’ll probably be better served looking elsewhere. For simple, Arabian adventure, Sinbad does the job. If you like the theme, NetEnt’s Arabian Nights and Playtech’s Sultan’s Gold are worth playing.
