Sinbad Slot has five reels plus 40 Paylines and is inspired by historical fantasy. With a strong Middle Eastern feel, it’s based on the well-loved tale of the Baghdad sailor who crossed the seas east of Africa and south of Asia, enjoying numerous fantastic adventures throughout his seven voyages.
Gorgeously drawn characters straight out of A Thousand and One Nights populate this game, whose Middle Eastern cityscape background is richly detailed and studded with gold minarets. There’s also an appropriate Oriental-sounding backing track, which manages not to be intrusive.
Join the fabled mariner and head east for this game from a fairytale and legend-loving Swedish operator Quickspin. The free spins feature incorporates a hat-trick of bonus games, and there are numerous extras adding to the fun.
There’s also a slightly unusual row formation, with Reels 1 and 5 having three positions, while the middle three have four.
Prizes are up for grabs for finding all kinds of pirate loot, including jewels, as well as the game’s intriguing characters.
How to play
Per-spin price is slightly higher than the Quickspin norm at 40p a go, rising to £100 a pop. Meanwhile, the usual Autoplay, Spin and Total Bet functions are here.
Jewels in green, grey, orange, purple and blue are your lower-value symbols, while a range of characters form the higher-paying emblems, including the king, pirates and a veiled lady.
On every spin, at least one icon is stacked at random, giving Sinbad a range of possible win combos and varying the gameplay.
Sinbad Slot special features
A sailing ship serves as the Scatter, while the Wild symbol is a golden logo incorporating a pair of crossed swords. As ever, this replaces all icons bar the Scatter.
This is the best way of winning on Sinbad. Activate the perk in the standard way by bagging at least three ship Scatters anywhere on the reels. Then choose between these three bonuses, each one themed on one of Sinbad’s mythical voyages:
- Ape free spins feature: This one grants you seven free whirls. Whenever the ape shows up during this perk, he leaves a minimum of one and maybe more Wild symbols which stay locked in place for the whole round.
- Roc free spins feature: Here you will receive 10 freebies. And whenever a diamond displays on the reels, a bird of prey swoops down and takes it to the meter at the right of the reels. Collecting seven or 11 diamonds turns more reels Wild so that you pick up another couple of free goes.
- Snake free spins feature: This one gives you a dozen wagerless turns. When the snake slithers on to Reels 1 and 5, it slides between them, leaving a string of Wild icons behind.
Sticky Wild respins bonus
This is non-progressive and worth 500 coins.
Return to Player (RTP)
This offering is on the low side of medium, so you get quite a bit of play for your dosh. What’s more RTP or Return to Player is particularly generous here, at 97.06%.
Entertaining and offering some great choices with that free spins round, we reckon you should have stacks of fun playing Sinbad. And because the three bonuses have different levels of volatility, it will appeal to casual and high-rolling players alike.
