Genie Jackpots Slot
Wish fulfillment is certainly part of the motivation for any online slot player – the desire to ‘win big’ is a strong element of what keeps slot jockeys locked to their favourite reels – so the mythical power of the Genie to grant wishes makes his presence on this progressive game rather alluring. But is Genie Jackpots full of Eastern promise, or likely to disappear in a puff of smoke against the video slot competition it faces?
Genie Jackpots come from the Blueprint stable, so comes with an excellent pedigree to live up to. Unsurprisingly it gets players in the mood for some reel fun with a very smooth and enjoyable twenty-payline basegame. The symbol set includes the usual appearance of a Wild, with stacked Scatters and a Bonus symbol excluded from its influence, and a pretty decent paytable offers a headline payout of 500 times your stake. That’s a very tasty prize to aim for in the basegame, but Genie Jackpots has powers to grant you even greater riches through his bonus features should you get a chance to virtually rub one of his magic lamps.
The bonus bonanza on this online slot comes, like the Genie’s fabled wishes, in threes; the Magic Carpet Bonus, Mystery Win Bonus and 3 Wishes Power Spin feature. The first two are triggered by spinning two of the generic Bonus Scatters into view and the dedicated Bonus Scatter for that feature.
The Magic Carpet Bonus feature is a bonus-trail style game, where the Genie’s simian assistant leaps across a sequence of flying carpets to reveal accumulating awards, whereas the Mystery Win Bonus summons the Genie himself to open a glistering treasure chest for an instant prize. The Mystery Win prize can be further enhanced if you can summon a repeat visit from the Genie by correctly picking which of three lamps contains the gaseous benefactor.
Perhaps the most sought after feature from this Arabian themed slot lies within its randomly triggered 3 Wishes Power Spin game, for here lies the potential to pocket the Genie’s progressive jackpot. The 3 Wishes Power Spin feature is actually a pick of five possible bonus events, with stacked Wilds, Wilds with re-spins, and Wilds with double pays amongst the gifts that can be bestowed.
However, the lamp every player will be hoping to rub will be the one that whispers ‘open sesame’ to the vault that contains the Genie’s hefty progressive prize. And how large can the Genie’s largeness be? Well a recent winner on Sky Vegas had his wish granted when £1.35 million came his way from a single spin on this online slot.
There’s an embarrassment of riches for online slot players at the best online casinos, but a few games stand out as offering that little extra in their presentation and gameplay that give them that special shine. We think Genie Jackpots is one such game, and if you get to shine the right lamp to free the progressive prize this fantastic themed slot has trapped inside, you’ll be doubly glad you dreamed of Genie!
