The story of Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves is the basis for the online slot machine game of the same name. The background used in the game depicts a desert and a doored cave, with the reels located in front of it. This is the cave that Ali Baba enters in the story by saying “Open Sesame.”
The symbols used in the game are animated as a cartoon would be. They include a crooked dagger, a snake coming out of a basket, a golden beetle, flute, drum, a ring, a dagger, a monkey and a camel. The human symbols in the game, in addition to Ali Baba, are a thief and a belly dancer. No symbol in the game pays more than Ali Baba does.
The belly dancer serves as the game’s wild symbol, which becomes an expanding wild on the reels and leads to more winnings for players. There are three scatter symbols used in this game; a treasure chest, gold and bandit and the free spins symbol. When players get at least three of the treasure chest on the reels at once they get a cash prize. The gold and bandit symbol triggers a bonus round and the free spins symbol speaks for itself.
When players trigger the gold and bandit round, they choose a vase and are protected by Ali Baba anywhere from one to three times. Players get three choices of vases which will either contain a cash prize or a monkey and the lone thief. Ali Baba, if he is still there, will chase the thief away, allowing players to keep choosing vases until Ali Baba doesn’t protect them anymore. The maximum number of vases players can choose before this bonus round ends is six.
When the free spins bonus round is triggered players are taken to a screen where they see a cave with multiple treasure chests in it. Each chest contains extra spins and a multiplier. Players get to choose until they have 10 extra spins, though they run the risk of not winning a multiplier to use on the spins.
