    Started playing the multiplayer Sinbad machine at the el Cortez. Saw it at the golden nugget and at south point as well. It's a slot that plays like a video game. It has like 25 bonus games. The goal is to beat the 3 bosses for a chance at the jackpot or make it to the end for a shot at 100. The interesting thing is that the end bonus and boss bonus is not dependent on line bet, so there are several situations where it would make sense to take your bets down. For example, when hunting the last boss or if you pass the last "win or start over" before the end goal. Why bet 250 to initiate the last spin when 50 cents will get you same result? Same thing when you come to the fork in the road. If you get sent down the bad fork with no bonus it would be smart to drop down to 50 Until you are back on a road with more bonuses.
    All that said it is a slot from Azure which doesnt have many big payoffs on line bets. It's all about the boss hunt and end bonus, which I can assure you can be hit at min bet. Would love to hear others ideas about this game.
    Jackpot at el Cortez and golden nugget 550.
    Jackpot at south point 750.

    Will post a video later if interest. This is the most addicting slot machine I've ever played.

    I played it at one of my locals, Pala, last week. Yes, it is fun...played 30-45 minutes on $100...cashed out $199.xx after completing the journey...lol. During the boss fights, the game tells you to repetitively tap the spin button, as if you are in a slot tourney. After a couple times doing this, and looking like a fool, someone kindly told me, the outcome is predetermined, so you can just sit and watch if you want. Lol...what!? So, he happened to land on a "boss fight" square and told me to watch. He crossed his arms and sat back in the chair. At first the boss was kicking his ass, then all of a sudden, his character made a couple hits and then wound up for a big hit and knocked out the boss. Sure enough, I tried this through the rest of my adventure and it seems he is right! The other features of the game will need your participation though...controlling the bird to collect coins, picking the correct vase, picking the correct island, and steering the raft. Overall, I found it entertaining, but the payback kind of sucks. If you see a major jackpot on the game, defeating the main boss does not guarantee you will get it. You end up spinning a wheel and the jackpot amount is one of the possible outcomes on the wheel. Have fun and good luck!

    Have you tried to not steer the raft though? It's possible that's predetermined too.

    Unfortunately, it could be either way legally in California (if the casino has a Class III compact (Pala has one), if the casino doesn't, it MUST be predetermined). Or if California forbids skill-based slots (I don't know the right answer to that). It can be either way in Vegas (skill-based slots are legal in Nevada).

    I saw a Sinbad game in Tunica earlier this month. But neither unit looked close to the goal, so I stayed far away.

    If you read their website it says that features may differ based on jurisdiction. It would be nice if in the vs other players events it was skill based. You can tell that the boss fights are predetermined because you can get them down to knockout and they will 1 hit knock out
    you at full health. But since i witnessed the jackpot and the end bonus of 100 received at min bet, I know that strategy can be employed for traversing the board. That said all boss fights pay a great deal more than other events, so if a boss is imminent I upped my bets. You can get burned if you get a dry spell of wheel spins, but the upped bet bird random can make you a nice profit. It's been my experience that normal pays keep you even and working the game board. Your only chance t profit is from the boss and completion jackpot/wheel spins. I hope this ends up in the Midwest. I'd travel to play it.

    In one session I video taped about 40 bonuses and not many were duplicates.
    The fighting bonus rounds were like the Teken 2 games, but assume that is a bit predetermined.
    Pretty fun though to be drinking and pounding the keys to try and beat the opponent in both the fights and camel races.
    Overall this game kept me and my wife busy for a long time and overall there was a lot of coin-in but not much money spent.
    Well worth it for the entertainment value, but don't expect to get rich. The bonuses don't pay well but they are frequent enough (more than any other game I ever played) to keep your bankroll going.
