Before we get to what this slot delivers in terms of variety, we need to address the layout of the interface: this is a lot more attractive and streamlined than their usual MO. If you look at the titles of Animal Party, the control panel is a lot lighter, but it’s also more tedious to interact with. In Arabia you have everything in plain sight, allowing you to maintain a certain level of momentum when playing.
In classic slot machine fashion, you utilise arrows to alter the bet figures and the lines, which range from 0.03 per line up to 3 credits per line. What is more, if you want to speed up the spinning, you just look for the lightning bolt symbol in the right hand corner of the screen; it’s all so seamless and convenient. The only issue we have is that paytable and rules aren’t placed together, which seems illogical to us.
Rub the Lamp
In true style, given the subject matter of the theme, Arabia requires that you get three or move magic lamps in order to access the free games. Seeing as this is a Booming Games title, and that they rarely change their setup, you can expect to be awarded a total of ten games. These spins don’t appear to have any additional entertainment value attached to them, which in turn makes them very lacklustre.
What is important to note is that the gamble feature doesn’t appear to work during this time; you can play it before the spins start, but then once they’re programmed in that’s it. At least until they run out. This is a rather trivial bit of information, but it’ll help all of you novice players out there that don’t know the ropes.
In regards to the gamble feature, it takes on another unique form, much like all the double or nothings from the brand. In this case you have a genie holding two gems. You have to select which one you think is hidden inside the golden ball, and should you win, you get double your cash prize. You’re able to play this again, if you’re correct, or you can collect your winnings and walk away a bit richer.
Assuming you tire of the gameplay, you’ll want to have another slot machine lined up, which is why we’re going to suggest Golden Caravan to you. Brought to you by Play’N Go, this is a more contemporary example of the theme displayed inside Arabia; the aesthetic is sharp and the tiles highly animated.
In addition to that you also have a series of free spins, as well as some features exclusive to the title (which we’re not about to spoil for you). If you were to ask our opinion, we’d say that Play’N Go have done a better job of capturing the exoticism of this theme, but that isn’t to say that Booming Games should be overlooked.
All Is Golden
We have to admit that this isn’t a show-stopper, and that in return, you’re more likely to grow weary of the matrix before you become a richer gambler. Nonetheless, Booming Games have made an accessible title that accommodates most paying gamers, and offers demo for those that can’t afford to punt. It also brings with it a dated but still attractive interface with which to play. This is an average slot machine that is designed to entertain you for a short period of time before you move on.
