A game with an Arabic feel to it, Morocco is designed by Bally and it’s a slot machine which you can find in both land and online casinos that are powered by this developer. The release looks slightly dated, but as always with Bally, there will be reasons to be excited as well.
Featuring a modern layout, where 243 ways to win are available on 5 reels, Morocco will have expanding wilds, 2x to 6x multipliers, scatter symbols and an Oasis Palace Bonus which can bring cash rewards or free games. The top winning combinations will pay as much as $6,400 each.
Because it uses ways to win, rather than regular lines, the winning combinations will come in a different way, and the bets are designed to accommodate this new system as well. Since it wouldn’t be practical to require 243 credits to be used each round, the slot relies on a system with 25 credits instead, simulating the presence of 25 lines through them. You pick the value of the credit, same as if you would’ve done in any Bally slot with regular lines. Since the credit value can be anywhere between $0.01 and $10, the betting range is $0.25 to $250.
The game can pay reasonably well, especially for a slot with ways to win, and prizes of up to $6,400 are going to be available for each top winning combo. There are also expanding wilds in some parts of the game, and those should come in handy as you’re trying to get multiple ways to win to pay you. Consider the 6x multipliers that the wild symbols can apply, and you will understand why the slot has big potential.
Not surprisingly, the Return to Player is not among the best things about this Bally slot machine. Announced at 93.9%, the RTP is too low to be seriously considered by professional players that are using online slot machines, though if you find the game at a regular land casino, you should give it a try.
I think you will enjoy most of the features available in Morocco, and it all starts with the ways to win that the game uses. The winning combinations require 3+ matching icons appearing on the right reels, the exact positions don’t matter.
Belly Dancer Wilds With Multipliers
The Belly Dancer, just the type of symbol you’d expect to find in a slot with an Arabic theme, will be used as an expanding wild that may cover entire reels. Multipliers are also applied by the wild, depending on the column that it lands on. The three reels which may get wild Belly Dancers are the 2nd, 3rd and 4th ones. There is a 1x multiplier for reel 2, a 2x multiplier for reel 3 and a 3x multiplier on reel 4. These can work together, so a 6x multiplier is possible when landing wilds on both reels 3 and 4.
Oasis Palace Bonus With Free Games
This feature may be activated with three or more Oasis Palace icons, scatter symbols that may appear anywhere in view. 10, 15 or 25 free spins are triggered, plus you also receive a prize that could reach 250 credits ($2,500). A second screen gives you a chance to win additional free spins.
The country of Morocco might be the main source of inspiration for the slot machine, but on the reels you get an Arabic style design that could just as easily be inspired by countries from the Middle East. There are belly dancers, palaces, bowls filled with precious gemstones, pointy shoes, and various basic Royals that look as ugly as you’d imagine. It’s an average looking game, but that doesn’t mean it’s not interesting.
Morocco has excellent features to convince its players to check it out, and those should be keeping you busy for quite some time. Don’t count on the graphics doing any of the heavy lifting though.
