Genie Wishes, launched in April 2017, is a slot game from Booming Games. Some of the rival games are 3 Genie Wishes from Pragmatic Play, Crazy Genie from Red Tiger Gaming, and Genie Jackpots from Blueprint.
Genie Wishes is a slot game adaptation of the famous Aladdin tale, which is a part of the Arabian Nights collection. The tale is all about a special oil lamp, which, Aladdin, a poor young idler, successfully takes from a cave after being emotionally blackmailed by a trickster-cum-wizard; the lamp contains a wish-granting genie, which enriches Aladdin. The Genie Wishes players aim for two, three, four, or five winning combinations in all symbols except two symbols that need three, four, or five combinations.
Genie Wishes Game Characteristics
Genie Wishes has a 5X3 grid, and ten adjustable pay lines. The following are the twelve symbols used in Genie Wishes. The two special symbols are: a free games-activating golden oil lamp (scatter); and a “Wild” female genie called Princess Jasmine (also the substituting symbol).
The ten regular symbols are: a treasure chest; a blue diamond; red-and-golden genie shoes; a red-and-golden genie hat; a speckled purple A, a speckled red K, a speckled pink Q, a speckled green J, a speckled yellow 10, and a speckled blue 9.
Genie Wishes comes with these “bet per line” options (all the bet sizes when using a single pay line): $0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.05, $0.10, $0.20, $0.30, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, and $5.00. The following are the total bets (based on the bet size multiplied by selected pay lines) in Genie Wishes. For instance, the highest betting range involves using all ten pay lines: $0.10, $0.20, $0.30, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, $30.00, $50.00, and $100.00 (maximum total bet).
The Genie Wishes’ payouts are based on the bet size. For example, the $100.00 maximum bet has these payouts for three, four, and five combinations—either Qs or Js pay X50.00, X120.00, and X200.00. Two, three, four, and five winning combinations: the golden oil lamp pays X100.00, X300.00, X1000.00, and X1500.00; the “Wild” female genie offers X50.00, X500.00, X20000.00, and X150000.00; either the treasure chest or the blue diamond pays X50.00, X250.00, X5000.00, and X25000.00; either the genie’s shoes or the crown pays X30.00, X150.00, X500.00, and X1500.00; either the As or the Ks offers X30.00, X70.00, X150.00, and X250.00; and either the 10s or the 9s pays X20.00, X50.00, X100.00, and X150.00.
More than three golden oil lamps offer ten free games. The gamble feature lets the players risk their regular winnings, which can either double them or lose everything. The non-progressive jackpot of Genie Wishes is $150000.00.
Any Booming Games’ software is typically good and the Genie Wishes is no exception; the sounds, especially the melodies in the background and the jingling sound effects, are interesting; and the graphics are in accordance with the setting (predominantly China though with Middle Eastern names) of the literary works, especially the unmistakable domes associated with the Arabian architecture, and the Far East-related elephant rides.
