10000 Wishes is a folkloric video slot distributed by Microgaming. When its creator Alchemy Gaming launched it on May 6, 2021, it became the second game in the serialized “Wishes”, where the first game is Wheel of Wishes (February 2020).
The 1001 Nights stories-related Aladdin tale, in the Arabic literature, inspired 10000 Wishes that is named after its X10000 jackpot. Themes: plunder, genie, magic, enchantment, and card game’s suits. Its twelve symbols require three, or four, or five winning combinations.
