Sinbad Slot Free Play
Theme of The Game
A well-known character from a Middle Eastern story, Sinbad has become popular in the West as well, mostly thanks to animation films which introduced him to the rest of the world. We’re looking at a modern version of another Quickspin slot machine, which takes us to Baghdad, the Middle East city with which this character was associated. You see it in the background, and the Middle Eastern look is part of its symbols as well.
Speaking of symbols, some will show us the image of Sinbad, of a Princess, a Sultan, as well as other sailors. Eventually, we find the low-value gemstones as well, and those don’t contribute much to the slot. Wilds and scatters will be part of the game area, with Ships being used for the latter.
It’s not exactly a new developer, but it still feels like a smaller outfit, even though they’re working on half a dozen slots at any one time. Quality always seems to be very good, and the design is the one that gets your attention, while features and a decent RTP will keep it.
How To Play It
You can get started by spending as little as $0.40, it’s enough to activate the slot’s 40 lines. It can be increased from there, up to a maximum of $80 per spin.
It’s not the standard game area, since you get 3-4-4-4-3 symbols on its 5 reels, but the number of lines is one that feels much more common (40 lines active). Getting paid is similar to other slots, where a combo of 3+ symbols needs to form, from left to right.
The way to get paid well in Sinbad, is to have as many wilds as possible forming their own combinations. Up to 5 can land on a line, and get you a return of 12.5x the stake each time (500x from a full screen). Even if you can’t get a lot of wilds to show up, you can still use them as substitutes, and smaller wins may come your way.
The game picks a single type of symbol for each round, and then gives it the ability to land stacked. This increases the odds of forming combinations of that particular type, for the current round.
Three types of free spins can be accessed, though you get to pick only one at a time. Getting the choice is a matter of landing Ship scatters on the reels, 3 to 5 being needed for this.
- 7 Ape Free Spins: adds 1+ sticky wilds to the game area, with help from the Ape.
- 10 Roc Free Spins: Diamond symbols get collected and turned into wilds, and eventually you can get up to 4 extra free spins as well.
- 12 Snake Free Spins: get a Snake to land on the 1st and 5th reels, and it will move between those columns, leaving extra wilds behind it.
If you’re an experienced player, I doubt that smaller wins are enough to move the needle for you, so Sinbad might not be a good slot for everyone. A jackpot of 784x the stake is about the most that this slot can deliver.
Of course, the volatility is also low, so it’s not a risky game where you lose your money quickly. Thanks to a 97.07% RTP, it sounds like a great option for a beginner.
Sinbad is a game that I would recommend to any beginner, due to its combination of low volatility and above average RTP, but this also makes it less interesting for an experienced player.
