Many are familiar with the tale of Aladdin, where a young thief saves a princess' kingdom with the help of his genie friend. WGS' Magic Carpet doesn't make reference to Aladdin, but it looks pretty close since the symbols and background are inspired by the 1992 Disney movie. Does Magic Carpet live up to the film that serves as its inspiration, or is it just a cheap knockoff? Find out as we cover this 5-reel game's symbols, betting, features, and compare it to similar slots.
Symbols and Betting
Symbols in this game include an Arabian man (Aladdin look-alike), princess, palace, camel, monkey, treasure, sword, gold coins, magic carpet, fruit, fireplace, and the genie. The Arabian man pays the most, giving you 4,000 coins when he appears 5 times or more in a payline. It's also worth mentioning that the symbols' graphics look excellent. Visually, we'd say that Magic Carpet definitely lives up to Aladdin.
Regarding betting options, you can change paylines from 1-25 and adjust your coin denomination from $0.01 to $10.00. This makes for a minimum bet of one cent and a maximum wager of $250.00 per spin. If you're betting $10 when you get five Aladdin's in a single payline, you'll win the top regular prize of $40,000.
Magic Carpet Features: Genie Wild and Free Spins
Appearing only on reels 2, 3 and 4, the genie is wild and substitutes for all other symbols except the magic carpet scatter. The magic carpet is the scatter, and it multiplies winning payouts by 2x (2 symbols), 5x (3 symbols), 20x (4 symbols), and 150x (5 symbols).
In addition to multiplying your payouts, the magic carpet also awards you free spins. You receive 10 free spins for 3 carpets, 15 spins for 4, and 20 free spins for 5. All your wins are tripled during free spins, which makes this even more of a reward.
Comparison to Similar Slots
Magic Carpet is far from the only Arabian-themed slot available. Arabian Tales is one that comes to mind, and it deals with the same type of genie tale that Magic Carpet does. And as good as the graphics in Magic Carpet are, we like the ones in Arabian Tales even better. Another good quality to Arabian Tales is that it contains the same number of features as Magic Carpet.
Aladdin's Wishes is another popular slot that falls into this genre. This game's graphics are just a notch below Magic Carpet's, but Aladdin's Wishes is still a good game with authentic Arabian music, good features, and animations during winning payouts.
Magic Carpet Slots is Available on Smartphones, Tablets
If you have a smartphone or tablet, keep in mind that Magic Carpet is available for play on Android, iOS Apple, and Windows Phone devices.
Summing things up, Magic Carpet has excellent graphics that will remind you of the film Aladdin. This game is also above average in the features department, offering wilds, scatters and free spins. The only complaint we have here is that there's no second-screen bonus or other detailed features. If you can get past this, though, Magic Carpet is a good game to try due to its graphics and three bonus features.
