Magic of Sahara is a five-reel, nine payline slot powered by Microgaming that takes players on an extraordinary voyage where they will hopefully discover the real source of the magic in this desert wonderland.
Visually, Magic of Sahara is rather good – with the Sahara desert in the backdrop, the Arabian themed offering sees Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten and Nine royals on the reels. Players will also see caravans, a female and male character. The male figure is the most rewarding symbol.
The Magic of Sahara logo is the wild and appears super stacked on the third, fourth and fifth reels in the base game. It substitutes all icons bar the scatter. Landing three, four or five in a row will reward players with 6.67, 44.44 or 133.33 times their bet stake.
The other icon to look out for is the merchant that can land on all five reels – when players get one, a collectable token is added to the set. When players collect twenty-five tokens, they will activate the Free Spins round with twenty-five free spins and an x2 multiplier. During the round, the wild appears super stacked on all five reels.
The other way into the Free Spins round is by getting three, four or five scatters – the number of free spins players will play with is the number of free spins available in the token chain plus five more free spins. With a doubling multiplier, players can retrigger the round and play with up to thirty-four free spins in total. The wild is super stacked on all five reels too, which helps.Magic of Sahara is a relatively uncomplicated slot that is all about the Free Spins round. The best way to activate them is by collecting merchant tokens. Medium variance, players can win a decent 2,222.22 times their stake on each free spin with the x2 multiplier.
