Sinbad is a legendary heroic sailor who set off on numerous voyages from his homeland in the Middle East. Many a slots game has centred on his adventures and Quickspin have created their own version, with the titular character setting the scene for an epic and immersive online entertainment experience.
Sinbad is a 5 reel, 40 payline video slots game and its format differs slightly to the norm in that reels 1 and 5 have only 3 positions, whilst the centre 3 reels have 4.
Sinbad Game Basics
Quickspin have created Sinbad in such a way that it captures the spirit of the Middle East, and the richly coloured purple and gold background shows off spiralled minarets that stretch as far as the eye can see. The soundtrack of the game is also suitably fitting and it’s cheerful without being cheesy.
On the reels are the lower value symbols of varying coloured gems, along with higher paying symbols that include a range of characters all dressed in Middle Eastern garb. The gems are coloured red, grey, blue, purple, green and orange, whilst the characters on the reels include a heavily bearded man, a man in a turban, a mysterious lady with a fan and, of course, Sinbad himself. In the base game all symbols can be stacked, except for the Scatter, increasing their value exponentially.
Sinbad has both a Wild and a Scatter symbol, both of which can increase player’s chances of winning whenever they appear on the reels. The Wild is the golden crossed swords symbol, and the Scatter is the ship that Sinbad set sail on one of his many adventures on.
Should 3 of the ship Scatter symbols appear simultaneously anywhere on the reels, the Free Spins bonus round will be triggered. Once triggered, players must choose between 3 different free spins bonuses:
Ape Free Spins: The Ape bonus rewards players with 7 free spins, and when the ape appears on the reels he’ll drop at least one Wild symbol into play. The Wild or Wilds dropped will then remain there till the end of the bonus round.
Roc Free Spins: This Bonus rewards players with 10 free spins and an innovative diamond feature. Whenever a diamond lands on the reels a scale on the right hand side of the reels fills up a little more and when 7 or more diamonds are collected, extra spins will be awarded.
Snake Free Spins: In this bonus round 12 free spins are awarded and when the snake Wild lands on reels 1 and 5 it will slither onwards, leaving a trail of Wilds in its wake.
On average, each of the free spins offers the same value in terms of rewards, but the Roc option seems to be the more potentially lucrative overall.
