Ali Baba's Luck Megaways Review
Ali Baba's Luck Megaways is a slot game from Max Win Gaming, which is a partner of the somewhat more famous Red Tiger Gaming. Since the latter has the right licenses to make new megaways slots, they can develop this game. However, the game is brand new and can be played in various casinos like LeoVegas since November 2, 2020. The normal variant, ‘Ali Baba's Luck' was also only recently on the market, which can be called somewhat striking. In this review we will go into every detail about this game, so read on.

RTP en Variance
The RTP, or return to player, for this game will be 96.09%. This means that the casino returns this percentage of all bets back to the players. The volatility or variance is high. A high volatility means that you win less frequently, but large amounts.
The design is slightly different than you are used to, although it broadly corresponds to many megaways games. For example, the playing field simply consists of 6 reels, and the title of the game can be found at the top. Options such as determining your bet and the ‘spin' button can be found at the bottom of your screen. Basically everything is pretty self-explanatory, and you will find it easy. Furthermore, the background is a bit more visible than usual and matches the theme.
How does Ali Baba's Luck Megaways work?
A somewhat less common variant is that of 6 reels with a maximum of 5 symbols, so that ‘only' 15,625 megaways can participate at the most. Furthermore, the principle remains the same and you will be able to form combinations from the first roll. Here too you will have to spin the same symbol for most symbols on at least the first two (high symbols) or three (low symbols) reels. A number of fun and well-known features have been put into this game, and of course there is a bonus round that you can unlock. Striking is the fact that the maximum bet is 40, where this is often higher. From 0.20 you can bet and the game can begin!
The Symbols & Payouts
A small overview of the symbols divided into a few categories. Each category has some extra info:
- The 10 to A of a deck are the basic symbols, or ‘low paying symbols'.
- The premium symbols consist of Ali Baba, a female character, a vase, and a ring. These symbols pay out a bit better if you form a combination with them. For a 6 of a kind with Ali Baba you get 25x your stake! The lowest premium symbol also yields 3x your bet with 6 of the same.
- Notable: No wild symbol in this game.
- You need the scatter symbol, or the bonus symbol, to clear the bonus round.
We are always a big fan of this concept. All possible symbols are displayed at the top of the playing field. When you make a winning combination with a certain symbol, this symbol is gold for the next round. As soon as this symbol appears on one of the reels, it will expand and cover the entire reel. An additional advantage is the fact that these symbols always pay out after expanding, and are not dependent on the position they land on.
Ali Baba's Luck Megaways Bonus Feature
You must spin at least 3 of the aforementioned bonus symbol to unlock the bonus round. This will take you through to the ‘Lucky Round' where you can win big prizes. After this you get the chance to spin a wheel, which will determine how many free spins you get:
- 3 scatters: Between 4 and 16 free spins
- 4 scatters: Between 8 and 20 free spins
- 5 scatters: Between 12 and 24 free spins.
As you can see you earn 4 additional free spins on both sides for every extra scatter. Also during the bonus round there is a symbol that counts as an expanding symbol. This symbol is predetermined.
Max win & Rating
The maximum win is 20,366x your stake and the game scores 4/5 stars.
The main reason for the average score is the fact that the number of features in this game is somewhat low. Often these are the game elements that make the game. However, it is a great game and there are very big prizes to be won!
