Arabian Nights is a slot machine from Net Entertainment (NetEnt) with a famous progressive jackpot. Arabian Nights was launched back in 2005 and is one of the oldest NetEnt games still available in online casinos. The largest jackpot paid out by Arabian Nights so far was a €8,635,872 jackpot won by a Finish player in Paf Casino in November 2012.
Since Arabian Nights is over ten years old by now, the animations do not have a modern feel and the game features are rather basic. This game is a good choice when you want a pretty simple slot machine without the bells and whistles, but still want the added excitement of a huge progressive jackpot. There is no interactive bonus game, no expanding wilds, no re-spins, etc. There are five reels but no more than 10 paylines. The RTP is 95.6 percent.
The theme for Arabian Nights is, of course, the Arabian night, as we expect to find it in stories such as One Thousand and One Night. Examples of symbols that can appear on the reels are a Beduin tent, an oil lamp, a pointy-toed shoe, a fez, a dromedary and a janbiya.
NetEnt has not released a mobile version of Arabian Nights.

The turban-wearing man is wild (and a win multiplier)
The wild symbol in Arabian Nights is a man wearing a turban. The wild symbol can substitute for any other symbol, except for the scatter symbol (the oil lamp).
When the wild symbol substitute for another symbol and thereby helps create a winning symbol combination, the coin win is doubled.
Free spins mode
The oil lamp is a scatter symbol in Arabian Nights. If you get at least three scatter symbols, anywhere on the reels, you’re awarded with 15 free spins.
Winning the progressive Arabian Nights jackpot
You win the progressive Arabian Nights jackpot by getting five men in turbans on the 10th payline, provided that you have bet on the 10th payline. This means that if you bet on less than 10 paylines when playing Arabian Nights, it is impossible for you to win the progressive jackpot.
Information about the progressive jackpot
When an online casino includes Arabian Nights in their slots offering, they have two options regarding the progressive jackpot.
A.) Connect their Arabian Nights to the pooled progressive Arabian Nights jackpot managed by NetEnt.
B.) Have their own local progressive Arabian Nights jackpot fed (and won) by players in that casino only.
Examples of online casinos that have opted to have their own local progressive jackpot instead of feeding the pooled one are Unibet Casino, Betsson Casino and Paf Casino.
