The classic story of Aladdin is one we’ve seen plenty of before, particularly when it comes to slots. There’s something about that Arabian Nights theme that makes you think of riches and lost treasure, and gaming providers have jumped on it. But this new release from Pragmatic Play definitely has a different feel to it, and between the beautiful graphics and animations and the ultra-smooth gameplay, the fun features also play into the story to make this slot stand out.
We’ll go through all the details below to help you understand the game when it hits the screens.

Aladdin and the Sorcerer bonus features
What we liked about the features of this slot is that they play into the storyline. They may be random, but they help build the story of the slot to make it a more engaging game for players.
Wilds can appear in a few different ways, but we’ll start with the main one. The funky gold wild symbol will substitute for any base game symbol to help complete your paylines. If you manage to land five wild symbols across a full payline, you’ll also be awarded 50x your stake.
The random wild feature is where the story really kicks in, since this is where the battle of Aladdin and the Sorcerer begins. If the Aladdin bonus symbol appears on the first reel without the sorcerer, you’ll see three to six wilds appear randomly across the reels. Similarly, if the sorcerer bonus symbol lands on the fifth reel without Aladdin, you’ll also see three to six wilds appear.
Landing both the Aladdin and sorcerer bonus symbols at the same time will see stacked wilds appear on both the first and fifth reels, along with triggering the respins feature.
Once the respins feature has been triggered, you’ll see a health bar for both Aladdin and the sorcerer appear. Each time either an Aladdin or sorcerer symbol appears without the other present, the other character’s health bar will drop by one. If Aladdin loses all his health bars first, you’ll stop respinning and return to the base game.
If the sorcerer loses his health bars first and Aladdin wins, you’ll be taken to the second respins level, where you’ll receive three spins. Here, multipliers of 2x and 3x will also apply to the second and third spins respectively.
Aladdin and the Sorcerer jackpot
This slot focuses more on the battle between Aladdin and the sorcerer, so there’s not a jackpot to play for. However, you do have the potential to hit wins as high as 2,000x your stake, allowing you to still bring in some hefty prizes.
RTP and volatility
The high volatility nature of this slot means the wins won’t come in as often, but will be on the higher side when they do. The return to player is also on the higher side at 96.23%, so you could be in for some nice big prizes if you play this slot long enough.
