Sinbad’s Golden Voyage slot uses six reels, not five, and Reels 1, 3 and 5 display six windows each, while there are seven windows on each of Reels 2, 4 and 6.
Ash Gaming has come up with some rare and interesting features in Sinbad’s Golden Voyage slot, so it should interest online casino visitors looking for a diversion from the typical range of reels and paylines.
As a result of its expanded reels, staggered so that each window is adjacent to at least two on the next reel after every spin, Sinbad’s Golden Voyage slot can offer players 164 paylines, an unusually large selection for a slot.
Sinbad’s Golden Voyage slot’s 10 ordinary payline icons are all related to the story. Four gemstones: a topaz, emerald, ruby and diamond, all pay identical prizes, starting at 0.10 for three of a kind. With six reels, all the three-of-a-kind prizes are quite low for the other symbols too: an anchor, a casket of treasure, a beautiful oasis city, a dhow under sail, the fabled enormous Roc bird, and Scheherazade herself, the teller of the tale. Even she wins only 0.50 for three of a kind.
For six of a kind, the prizes are more impressive, paying as much as 10.00, 15.00 or 35.00 for the dhow, the Roc or Scheherazade, respectively. Because of the 164 paylines, multiple windows and stacking symbols, of course, many of these Sinbad’s Golden Voyage slot payline prizes can be won multiple times on the same spin like if you’re splitting bets in online blackjack in Canada.
These 164 paylines are automatically engaged on every game, so the only choice the player must make is setting the total bet pet spin. This can be as low as 0.02 in the appropriate currency, but the payline prizes at this level are really low. Some of Sinbad’s Golden Voyage slot’s payline combos don’t pay any prize at all if the spin bet is lower than 0.20.
The top bet per spin is 100.00, but that’s a little high for most players; any payline prizes mentioned below are based on a happy medium of 5.00 per spin. The Sinbad’s Golden Voyage slot is, of course, based on the tales of Sinbad the Sailor from the 1,001 Arabian Nights, and while Ash developers have created some great graphics in the symbols, the reels themselves are in simple gold frames against a peaceful sunny seascape.
All 11 of the Sinbad’s Golden Voyage slot’s payline symbols, including Sinbad, the Wild icon, can arrive stacked. These stacks start over two windows on Reel 1, increasing steadily across the reels until a stack can cover all seven windows on Reel 6. If Sinbad completes a winning combo in any position, the Wild expands to cover the whole reel as well, boosting the number of combos the Wild can create by substitution.
A jewelled golden brooch plays Sinbad’s Golden Voyage slot’s Scatter role. When they occur on Reels 2, 4 and 6 together, the player wins 7 Leviathan Free Spins, played against an appropriately stormy backdrop. The stacking order reverses, so it is now possible to have the whole of Reel 1 filled by the same symbol, and the Leviathan Wild is also in play. This fearsome animation is a massive sea serpent that covers ten windows over three reels, turning them all Wild and increasing the winning potential of the free spins round impressively.
