Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways (Red Tiger)
Even before the dust settles on the original Ali Baba's Luck game, Re Tiger has already developed a Megaways version of the same.
After securing a license from the original owner of this mechanism (Big Time Gaming), Red Tiger is the proud owner of this 1,001 Arabian Nights inspired slot machine.
I love the Megaways concept, and after trying out this slot for several days, here is my review:
This version uses a 6-reel design, and strange enough, I find the design much smaller, even after considering that it has more ways to win and symbols.
On each reel, you can get between 2-5 symbols, which is not constant on all reels. This makes it very possible to work with up to 15,625 ways to win.
Betting and Prizes
Alibaba's Luck Megaways allows bets of between $0.20 to $4 per spin.
Red Tiger has really worked on improving their payouts, and for this title, you can get up to 20,000 xs the stake, from just one spin.
The RTP isn’t bad either, and at 96.09%, it is within the average for modern slots. However, the title is also high in volatility.
Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways Features
Among the slot’s features are expanding reel symbols.
Once you get a win, the respective bar will light up, and afterwards, they will be turned into special golden expanding symbols, ready for the coming round.
If golden symbols land and they manage to form a win, they will then expand and take over the entire reels.
The treasure chest scatter symbol is another great feature on this title, and it will be helpful in triggering the Lucky Round/free spins,
With at least 3 such symbols landing on the reels, the slot will reward you with between 4 and 16 free Dream Spins/free spins.
Theme and Design
Ali Baba's Luck Megaways is an Arabian-style slot machine, and I love the purple-tinged Arabian place appearing in the background.
Low pay symbols are represented by 9-A royals, while others include a ring, Alibaba (highest pay), a vase, and Morgiana ('the girl').
At first glance, it is very easy to confuse Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways with Leprechaun’s Magic Megaways game. There are a lot of similarities between the two.
When you compare the original Ali Baba’s Luck, with the Megaways version, you will notice a few changes, especially the RTP, volatility and the maximum win.
I love the fancier setup of this Arabian adventure slot, and despite its high volatility, it’s a great game for all levels of players.
