Sahara Nights, a video slot game from Yggdrasil, offers both expanding wilds and free spins with sticky wilds. Set against the backdrop of the Sahara desert and influenced by Arabic culture, this medium variance game was released on September 19, 2019. The game, which is playable on various platforms and devices, allows players to place bets up to £100. The game’s RTP is an average 96.2%. <br><br>In the game, players can benefit from a Genie Wild that becomes stacked when part of a winning combination. Interestingly, the same Genie Wild becomes sticky in the free spins feature, providing an opportunity for significant wins. The maximum potential win on Sahara Nights is 3,068 times the player’s stake.<br><br>Although visually appealing, Sahara Nights does not stand out from other Yggdrasil games and may be considered mediocre. The highest paying symbol is the Sultan, followed by a princess and Aladdin. To win, players need between three to five matching symbols on a payline. <br><br>The game includes one bonus feature in the base game – the Genie Wild. This wild can only land on the three middle reels and becomes a fully stacked wild covering the entire reel when part of a winning combination. This can lead to significant payouts. <br><br>The free spins feature, triggered by landing three, four, or five storybook scatter symbols, is the main attraction. This feature rewards players with 8, 12, or 16 free spins, and landing all five scatters on the same spin results in a 1,000 times stake win. During the free spins, the Genie Wild expands and becomes a sticky wild, providing a fully stacked wild reel for the duration of the spins. If all three middle reels become fully stacked sticky wilds, players are granted two extra free spins. <br><br>While Sahara Nights does not offer a jackpot, it does provide decent payouts. The maximum win is achieved by filling the screen with Sultans, which is more likely to occur during the free spins feature with up to three stacked sticky wilds. The maximum payout is 3,068 times the player’s stake, potentially resulting in winnings up to £306,800. <br><br>Sahara Nights is not the most impressive game from Yggdrasil, but its expanding wilds and free spins feature make it worth a try for those who prefer medium volatile action with decent potential.
