In the midst of the huge selection of slot games available today, we often forget one of the most important parts about slots—relaxation. Is there anything better after a long day of work than kicking back and spinning the reels for a bit? Especially if you’re working long stretches without any vacations, and it’s safe to say most of us are in that boat.
If you think slot games should be both relaxing and fun, you definitely need to try out Aruban Nights by Arrow’s Edge. This slot game puts you on a secluded beach on the beautiful island of Aruba with a tiki bar, relaxing music, and an absolutely stunning evening sky in the background. And of course, there are plenty of prizes to go around.
Aruban Nights is a 5×3 slot game with 20 paylines. Unlike many slot games, the paylines in this game are fixed so your line bet is always multiplied by 20. You can bet as little as $0.02 per line ($0.40 total) and as much as $12.00 per line ($240.00 total). You can change your bet amount using the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard and spin the reels using the space bar.
Prizes in this game are multiplied by your bet per line. In order from least to most valuable, here are the symbols included in Aruban Nights: boat, palm tree, lighthouse, margarita, beer, flamingo, Sunny. The highest reward you can get from these symbols is 2,000x your bet per line for a maximum payout of $24,000.
When you get a winning combination, the symbols involved disappear and an avalanche of new symbols appears. For each consecutive avalanche in a round, the multiplier increases to 2x for 1 avalanche, 3x for 2 avalanches, and 5x for 3 avalanches. If these 3 avalanches happen during free spins, the multiplier will be 6x for 1 avalanche, 9x for 2 avalanches, and 15x for 3 avalanches.
The wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols, including the free spins symbol, but does not provide a payout for matching 3 or more of a kind on a payline.
Land 3 Lindsey symbols on a payline from left to right and you’ll trigger 10 free spins. All prizes are tripled during these free spins, and the feature can be triggered again by landing another 3 Lindsey symbols.

Just like most (if not all) of the slot games by Arrow’s Edge, you can easily play Aruban Nights online. All you have to do is find the game at an online casino and you can usually play without registering; you will need to register to play for cash, however.
You can even play Aruban Nights on your mobile devices. Most online casinos that offer an instant play version of this game will allow you to play it on your smartphone or tablet instantly, too, though it can only be played in landscape mode.
The one area where Aruban Nights really excels is the design. The game is really beautifully drawn, and everything about it looks and feels relaxing. There’s a bartender at the tiki bar in the background pouring up shots and mixing drinks, and the island music is a nice complement to it all. The symbols are also very well done and fit the theme nicely.
There are also some cool features in Aruban Nights, but there’s one flaw: the free spins feature. Free spins are usually triggered by scattered symbols, not symbols on a payline like in this game. This makes it incrediblyhard to trigger and really makes the game feel monotonous.
Between the fixed paylines and lackluster free spins feature, Aruban Nights definitely missed the mark in some ways. But the theme of the game is very nice and makes this a good slot game for unwinding at the end of a long day.
