Arabian Nights™ jackpot slot pays out €1.4 million during the weekend
It’s been longer than half a year that the pooled Arabian Nights™ Jackpot was won for the last time, and now it finally landed again with a lucky player during the weekend. The pooled Arabian Nights™ Jackpot is the slowest growing NetEnt Jackpot, but I assume that the lucky player doesn’t mind at all winning an incredible €1.4 million. No details have been published by NetEnt yet, but I do have some statistics that will tell us more about this weekend’s win.
Arabian Nights™ Jackpot
It’s definitely not NetEnt’s largest Jackpot and it certainly isn’t the fastest-growing jackpot either, but it’s one of the oldest NetEnt Jackpots available! Some NetEnt Jackpots only need several weeks to get to the €1.4 million, but it took the Arabian Nights™ Jackpot more than half a year to get to the €1.4 million. Yet, players don’t mind as they continue to enjoy the Arabian Nights™ jackpot slot, a game that keeps bringing a warm atmosphere to the reels inspired by 1001 Arabian Nights, a collection of Middle Eastern folk tales.
Those who don’t know anything about these folk tales might see an ugly version of Aladdin or an Ali Baba without his 40 thieves. Whatever you see in the turbaned sultan, there’s no doubt he’s surrounded by a fez, a sword, the wonderful lamp, a camel and a typical Arabic tent. The sultan Wild is the most prominent symbol in the Arabian Nights™ slot as it’s this symbol that’s responsible for the jackpot win!
So far, 45 players managed to hit the Arabian Nights™ Jackpot with the €4.9 million jackpot from 2010 remaining the highest although statistics show a biggest win of €8.6 million as well. The confusion is caused by the fact that this jackpot is available as a pooled jackpot, shared with other online casinos, and as a local jackpot as some NetEnt Casinos. I lost track of this jackpot game in the past years, but one thing is for sure, it took the €1.4 million jackpot a long time to climb up and was won in the weekend, the reason the pooled jackpot has now jumped back to €185.000.
Arabian Nights™ Jackpot winner
Although I currently don’t have any details on this weekend’s Arabian Nights™ Jackpot win but I’m pretty sure it’s the pooled jackpot that was won. It’s therefore that the jackpot counter is showing €185.000 instead of €1.4 million. The exact amount that was won is €1,422,509 and I’m sure that’s good enough for the lucky winner, no matter how long it took the jackpot to get to this amount.
The game is tracked since December 2009 and winners keep on coming, especially now the game is available as a NetEnt Touch® game as well. Thanks to Arabian Nights Touch®, you can now try to win the jackpot at any location and at any time of the day, as long as you’re connected to the internet.
Arabian Nights™ Jackpot
There’s no doubt that Mega Fortune™, Mega Fortune Dreams™, and Hall of Gods™ are the higher NetEnt Jackpots and therefore more popular, but the Arabian Nights™ jackpot slot has proved to be a keeper as well with its new mobile version.
It might be the maximum bet of €5 that attracts those seeking a multi-million jackpot or the warm atmosphere the game is bringing or the simplicity of the game. This has been a successful fact in the past year with Starburst™ and BerryBurst™ as the perfect examples of how popular a game with only a few features can be. Symbols aren’t much spectacular either, but some players just aren’t looking for complicated.
The Arabian Nights™ slot is one of the oldest NetEnt jackpot slots and therefore it’s better not to expect any cutting edge animations and innovative slot features, but do expect a traditional game and enjoy the sound of crickets giving the balmy Arabian night extra dimension.
While you’ll be enjoying a starry night, you’ll be enjoying the Wilds and Scatters, as well as a Free Spins feature. The game is bringing low/medium volatility which means wins occur frequently.
The turbaned sultan is representing the Wild symbol and it’s him you’ll want to see on all reels. Five Wild symbols will award the jackpot while 2 are already good enough for a payout while all wins with a Wild involved are doubled.
15 Free Spins will be activated by 3 or more Scatters and during these free spins, all wins are tripled. Just like the Wild symbols, two already award a win and but the more Scatters, the bigger the win.
