Aladdin and The Magic Carpet Review
Almost everyone has heard of the famous tale of Aladdin. It's a Middle-Eastern folk talk that is associated with The Book of One Thousand and One Nights - despite not being part of the original text.
It's such a popular story about a poor boy that happens to find a magical lamp that unlocks a Genie who happens to change his life for the better. Naturally, this has been the subject of many different mediums and not the online slot world with Aladdin and The Magic Carpet.
Playing on 5-reels with 9 paylines, this Arabian slot features free spins, expanding wilds and multipliers leading to wins of up to 1,132x the stake. If you are looking for an exotic slot that sprinkles the magic of Middle East folktales, then perhaps Aladdin and The Magic Carpet is the slot for you.
In regards to the visuals, there is nothing too special in this slot. However, that does not make it a bad slot. One thing that we were not expecting was that the design of the characters looked so photoshopped and fake. It's an online slot but this just feels quite strange and off-putting.
Thankfully, the overall visuals do look fantastic with the background detailing an Arabian night. There are fireflies throughout as well as palm trees blowing in the wind. Honestly, the only issue with the design is the characters. Aladdin and Jasmine both look like modern-day influencers instead of the character themselves.
Naturally, the music is what you'd expect with a variety of Arabian instruments paired together to deliver something mysterious and full of whimsy. It definitely builds up the atmosphere and gets you pumped up for spins.
Like most SYNOT slots, this one contains straightforward gameplay. Firstly, you'll find expanding wilds throughout the base game and these can even have multipliers throughout the bonus round.
The main feature is obviously the free spins round which can trigger 10 free spins. To make the most of your wins, you can take advantage of the gamble feature to double your wins without risking everything!
Sadly, the win potential is our least favourite aspect of this slot. The RTP is under the average at 95.97% which is frustrating because it's so close to the average standard of 96%. We can let this slide but the maximum win of 1,132x the stake is disappointing.
If this was a low volatility slot, then this would be fine. However, Aladdin and The Magic Carpet is a medium to high volatility slot, therefore we'd expect bigger wins of at least 5,000x the stake. That's not to say that you find big wins in this slot but it'll never be larger than 1,132x the stake.
Aladdin and The Magic Carpet does provide some entertaining moments with the gameplay that we are certain players will love. However, the win potential is just not up to our standards and left us feeling a little frustrated.
That's not to say that this slot is bad but it's definitely not for every slot player. If you love Arabian slots, then we recommend checking it out but just be aware of the maximum win cap.
