Collaboration between Max Win and Red Tiger has produced some worthy slots, like Leprechaun’s Magic Megaways, Casino Spin and Dragon Pearl, but perhaps one of the nicest releases has been the Ali Baba’s Luck, which now sees a Megaways remake. Red Tiger holds the Megaways license, so providers like Max Win can take great advantage of this situation. It’s also a bit odd, how soon they decided to make Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways, as the original version was released just merely 4 months ago.

Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways visual aspects haven’t been changed, but we will still review the slot as an individual release. Megaways aim to take a good slot and make it bigger and better. Overall, you could say that this is what was done with Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways, as lines and max payout has seen a massive increase in numbers. This slot is inspired by the historical 1001 Nights tale of Ali Baba and forty thieves, which makes up for a mysterious and beautiful theme.

Design and Payouts

Usually, these slots are quite joyful, but Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways is slightly intimidating, as the heavy drum sounds and the mysterious music creates a certain type of atmosphere. The pacing of the game picks up once you begin spinning the reels. The visuals are not too intricate, but the scenery is still pretty. The lavish gold and purple make a great combination. Comparing scenes with the original Ali Baba’s Luck, the only thing changed is the size of the game layout.

All the previous symbols make the appearance once more. As now as before, we are not too impressed by the presentation of these symbols. The visual style and quality are subpar, leaving you with a desire for something grander. Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways has the bottom five symbols plus the 4 high paying picture symbols, making up 9 symbols in total. Just as on Leprechaun’s Magic, all symbols on Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways have a chance to turn into golden version.

To most important reason to have Megaways version is the increased payouts, which have seen an upwards trend on almost every front. Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways max win potential has quadrupled to a sumptuous 20,000x payout. Volatility has stayed high as ever while the RTP has seen a minor but positive change, now being 96.09% opposed to 95.89%. Thanks to Megaways, Ali Baba’s Luck ways to win are now 15,625. The only thing that has gone down on Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways is the bet range, which has shrunk to much narrower 0.20 – 4 range. This might raise some Highroller brows, but this sort of practice has been seen more often on new Megaways slots.

Bonus Features

Like the secret thieves den, Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways hides some treasures to be desired, but just like the “open sesame” catchphrase, you will need the bonus features to get them. If you’re a book game fan, then you will be pleased to hear about Expanding Symbols feature, which is active throughout all game modes. After a successful combination, the winning symbol is noted at the top indicator. This or these winning symbols then carry over to the next spin, where these symbols, if landed, expand on the whole reel, just like on Book of Dead bonus game for example. On this Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways feature, the winning symbols don’t need to be adjacent, for a win to be made.

On Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways 3 treasure chests will activate the Dream Spins feature. The minimum is 3 bonus symbols for the feature to start, but every additional bonus symbols will grant +4 spins to the bonus game. Before we begin our Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways feature, a wheel spin called Lucky Round will determinate with how many base spins you will start the game. This could be as little as 4 or as high as 16. Dreams Spins essentially work the same way as the main game, although this time the golden symbols will stay locked in for the eternity of bonus game. If you read our review on Leprechaun’s Magic Megaways slot, then you will understand how identical these Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways bonus features are.

Conclusion

gold potThere are a few aspects to take into consideration before delivering a final verdict. On its own, not taking into consideration any previous games, Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways is a good release. It’s not too overcomplicated and thanks to the Golden Symbols, even the main game can bring a constant dose of entertainment. Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways in our opinion is slightly better than the original version. All the stats are increased and the Megaways addition feels natural. What perhaps makes us a bit divided is the obvious similarity between the not so long ago released Leprechaun’s Magic Megaways. These slots use the same features and almost all the payout stats are the same. Ali Baba’s Luck Megaways is a good slot, but it’s like a copied homework which your friend asked you to change up a bit.
