Open Sesame is the famous sentence that opened the den of thieves in the story about Ali Baba and his forty thieves. According to the legend, the entrance to the cave was under a spell and only those who knew the password could enter and claim the fortune.
Nowadays, players do not have to know the password, because they can claim Ali Baba’s treasure by playing Fortunes of Ali Baba, a five-reel, 20-payline video slot coming from Play’n Go’s creative kitchen. Playable from $0.20 per spin, the 2020 release offers the Den of Thieves Bonus feature, which can be triggered with the little help of the slave Morgiana.
Play Fortunes of Ali Baba
The lovely servant girl Morgiana is the Scatter that triggers the Den of Thieves Bonus. Ali Baba himself is acting as a Wild that substitutes for all regular icons. Thieves will also appear as Wilds, but only in the Free Spins feature. Food and Spices, valuable Gemstones, Golden Lockets and Knives act as high-paying symbols, while the low-value ones are represented by playing cards.
How to Play
