We Join an Epic Battle in Pragmatic Play’s Latest Slot Release – Aladdin and the Sorcerer!
Videoslots Casino has just added the latest slot from Pragmatic Play to their casino titled Aladdin and the Sorcerer, which sees you joining an epic battle that if won could lead to riches, well at least thats the idea!
The Aladdin and the Sorcerer slot is a regular 5×3 reel 20 fixed payline machine with the 2 main characters doing battle from each side of the reels, the reels are made up of a mixture of high and low paying jewel symbols, the highest paying having golden edges to help identify them and regular wilds on the middle reels.
All of the bonus features are triggered by the special Aladdin and Sorceror symbols that are present on reels 1 and 5, when one of these lands in view they will fire additional wilds (3-6 wilds) onto the reels in random positions along with the symbols converting into a wild.
This mini-feature occurs quite frequently, but to trigger the free spins bonus round you require both symbols to land in view at the same time, this converts reels 1 and 5 into wild reels before triggering the main bonus round.
The main bonus round sees Aladdin and the Sorceror square up for a fight in an almost Streetfighter style, with health bars and attacks firing across the reels, the same mechanic is at play here with the special symbols adding extra wilds onto the reels.
The added twist to the bonus round is that there is a 2nd level that is reached by defeating the Sorceror, holding the wilds in place on the killing blow (sticky wilds) and granting 3 re-spins with rising multipliers up to 3x, which is really where the best winning potential of this slot lies if you manage to start with lots of sticky wilds.

Aladdin vs Sorceror
When either of the special Aladdin or Sorceror symbols land in view on reels 1 or 5 they will add 3 to 6 wilds onto the reels and this special symbol will also get converted into a wild.
The main free spins bonus round is triggered when you land Aladdin and the Sorceror on the reels at the same, this causes reels 1 and 5 to convert to wild reels, payout any wins then trigger the bonus round.
During the free spins the battle between Aladdin and the Sorceror takes places, with a health bar for each character, the same mechanics are at play but each special symbol (Aladdin/Sorceror) that lands in view will also reduce the opponent’s health bar until one is defeated, the number of free spins that are played is entirely based on one of these characters being defeated.
Stage 2 Bonus
If Aladdin manages to win this battle you are transported to a 2nd stage where the wilds on the triggering spin become sticky, 3 re-spins are granted and a rising multiplier up to 3x is awarded for these spins.
Aladdin and the Sorcerer Slot
The Aladdin and the Sorcerer slot from Pragmatic Play is certainly a decent 20 payline machine, the addition of a 2nd bonus level is definitely the key attraction to this slot and gives the most winning potential when several well placed sticky wilds and multipliers are in play.
The winning potential might feel a little low for some players with the highest paying symbols paying 50x with no multipliers in play, but we did manage several bonus rounds well over 200x stake when reaching the 2nd bonus stage.
Overall its a fairly solid and simple to understand slot, we would have liked to see more random features and magic from Aladdin, it felt like a missed opportunity to incorporate some crazy magic featureson the reels, but overall its a perfectly playable and enjoyable slot.
