Inspired by the rich collection of Middle Eastern folk tales, Lightning Box has developed an enchanting video slot reminiscent of the fascinating tales known as One Thousand and One Nights. The famous story talks about King Shahryar who discovers his wife’s infidelity and kills her, which is, bizarrely, now a slot machine story.
The story goes, that having decided all women are the same, the King starts marrying one virgin after another and executing each the very next morning.
When Scheherazade becomes his wife, she comes up with a clever plan designed to postpone her death. She starts telling the king a tale on the night of their marriage but doesn’t finish it, and being curious to know how it ends, the king lets her live one more day. The next evening Scheherazade finishes her initial tale but immediately starts to tell another one, once again refusing to end it. This goes on night after night, or a total of 1,001 nights, to be more exact.
Ok, so we can’t really tell if Lightning Box tried to replicate this exact story, but giving it a context helps create the appropriate atmosphere. The developer’s Arabian Rose is a 5-reel and 40-payline affair featuring colourful visuals and very few, rather basic sound effects. Winning combinations are made with the help of sheikhs, camels, magic lamps and peacock feathers, along with seemingly unavoidable lower-value playing card symbols.
Beautiful Scheherazade is your Wild card willing to stand in for any of the other icons except for Scatters. Being a generous creature, she’ll also double each payout she contributes to. Players can wager between €0.40 and €40 per spin and use Autoplay function to make the reels spin on their own, either until a chosen number of rounds has been played, or the respective button is pushed one more time.
Landing 3 or more Scattered roses activates Gold Coin bonus game which turns Scatters into Pick Me symbols. Choosing one will reveal how many objects you’ll get to pick in the next level. Coin Pick level will then display 5 coins hiding either a random multiplier, or one of two high-value icons which will act as additional Wilds for the duration of Free Spins round. Stage 3 sends the reels spinning for free and you are given 7 opportunities to win without having to make an additional investment. Symbols revealed during the pick-me round contribute either by boosting your wins or helping you score more often.

So what is the most one can hope to collect. When looking at individual game icons, you’ll see that Wild pays up to 50x your total stake for five-of-a-kind, and the same number of Scatters promises to multiply the total bet by 200. Simple calculation makes it clear the base game can deliver profits of up to €8,000, which is neither bad nor staggering.
If you’re lucky enough to land 5 Scatters while spinning for free with a maximum multiplier of x6, the prize becomes more impressive. It’s a shame the betting range starts at a rather high level and at the same time doesn’t allow wagers larger than €40. We can imagine many of you would find it to be a deal-breaker.
