Genie Wild is an oriental themed online slot game, obviously centering on a magic genie. So, prepare your wishes, because they might just come true (especially applicable to wishes about large wins). This NextGen Gaming title is a highly volatile one, so big cash wins are just within arm’s reach. As for the visuals, you will be pleased to know that they are of excellent quality. This game enjoys 3D graphics and a very cozy setting with loads of colorful cushions, lanterns and a couple of exotically shaped bottles – you can probably guess by now what’s inside of them. Be sure to keep your sound on, as well, as there’s a very fitting oriental soundtrack to accompany gameplay.
Moving on to the game’s setup, the layout features 5 reels and 3 rows. These come with a total of 25 active paylines, and you are free to select a lesser number to place your bets on, if you like. In fact, you can decrease the number of active paylines to a minimum of 1. This affects the betting range, of course, making it very favorable for penny players. The minimum bet is only 1p per single spin, however, there is a bit of scope here for high rollers, as the maximum bet is £250 per spin. The jackpot, though, is 5,000 coins.
After any winning spin, you will have the option to gamble your prize. The side game will offer you to guess either the color or suit of the playing card that’s placed face down. In the event that your guess is correct, the former option will double your amount, whereas the latter will quadruple it. You can gamble your winnings up to 5 times, but beware, losing at a single attempt will result in the forfeiture of your prize.
Contrary to what you might have expected, the Genie is actually a girl, and she is also the game’s Wild symbol, meaning she can replace any of the regular symbols. Thus, the Wild can help contribute to winning combinations. In addition, this is also the most lucrative icon in the game and it can land in just about any position across any of the five reels. However, keep in mind that the Wild will not be able to substitute for the game’s Scatter icon.
The Freespins feature is the main attraction in Genie Wild, and you will have the opportunity to trigger it with the help of 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols landing on the reels during the same spin. This will award you a total of 10 free spins. Throughout the duration of the feature you will also benefit from expanding Wilds; in other words, any time you land a Wild symbol on the reels it will expand to cover the entire reel it’s on. As a result, you can potentially get even more winning combinations. On the downside, though, you won’t have the possibility to retrigger the feature.
Genie Wild boasts good quality graphics and a simple, yet entertaining structure. The whole game clearly revolves around the Freespins round, but it won’t be exactly easy to trigger it, so keep that in mind.
