For centuries, the Arabian Nights tales have held audiences spellbound from around the world. Online casino content provider NetEnt recently shared another, slightly different, story with its audience, a tale of a Swedish player hitting the jackpot on one of its most popular games, the progressive jackpot slot for Arabian Nights.
A Swedish player at Hajper Casino, an online gaming brand from Sweden managed by ComeOn!, claimed a €1,422,545.44 jackpot earlier this month after placing a €10 bet.
After activating the free spins feature on the popular game, the unnamed slot aficionado landed five wild Aladdin symbols.
Arabian Nights which was released in 2005 was NetEnt’s first jackpot game in it’s now growing portfolio of online slots. Many classics such as Mega Fortune, Mega Fortune Dreams, and Hall of Gods later followed it’s roll-out.
NetEnt has added titles such as Grand Spinn Superpot, Imperial Riches and Mercy of the Gods over the past year to further boost its offering of jackpot games.
Of the latest jackpot hit on Arabian Nights, Bryan Upton, NetEnt Games Ceo, said the game is a legendary title in the jackpot segment that “has created instant millionaires continuously since its release back in 2005.”
Arabian Night was not only the first innovative jackpot slot in the portfolio of the Swedish casino software company, but also one of the first such services on the relatively new online gaming market.
This low-to-medium volatility slot has a grid of 5×3 and 10 paylines. The Arabian-themed title is packed with symbols of Wild and Scatter and a free spins feature, and is linked to a progressive jackpot.
A smiling sultan with thick moustache holding up a sparkling red jewel represents the Wild sign. He can replace any other symbol and form winning combinations when the sultan hits the reels. A jewel-encrusted oil lamp represents the Scatter. Three Scatter symbols on the reels unlock the feature of free spins and award players with 15 free spins that give them an extra chance to score big wins, including the progressive jackpot.
Over the years, Arabian Nights has paid out millions of jackpot wins, including a €4.8 million jackpot that fell in 2010.
The popular game available on desktop and mobile devices has a RTP of approximately 95.62 percent.
