Can a magical Arabian spirit make your jackpot dreams come true? That’s the goal in 3 Genie Wishes, a 5 reel, 50 payline slot from Pragmatic Play. This trip to the desert comes with stacked wilds, instant win pick prizes of between 1x and 500x and free spins with sticky or raining wilds. Rub the lamp, on all devices, from between 50p and £250 per spin.
Set against a sun-kissed, Arabian village backdrop, the reels include lower value A to J symbols alongside a monkey, parrot and a trio of Arabian characters who offer top line payouts of 150, 200 or 300 coins.
Better still is the genie who is the game’s wild – he replaces all other symbols apart from the scatter and awards payouts of 20, 100 or 400 coins. The genie can land fully stacked to turn whole reels wild. He can land on any of the 5 reels or even on multiple reels on the same spin.
The magical golden lamp is the scatter – when it lands on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin, you’ll win a payout equal to your total bet as well as triggering the Bonus feature. The Genie will magically appear and offer you a treasure chest, a sack or an urn. Choose 1 of them which will reveal the following:
- Small Award – here you’ll win a payout equal to your total stake.
- High Award – an instant win prize of between 10x and 500x your stake.
- Free Spins with Raining Wilds – you’re awarded 10 free spins with a selection of wilds added at random on each free spin.
- Free Spins with Sticky Wilds – pick this and you’ll be awarded 6 free spins. Wilds are added at random to the reels on each spin. Whenever one lands, it will remain frozen in place for the remainder of the feature.
The reels are slightly different in both free spin rounds – the standard genie symbol is removed. As are the scatters. The randomly hitting wilds are a more than adequate substitute though. Unfortunately, you can’t re-trigger any more free spins here.
Visually, 3 Genie Wishes is nicely done – the imagery has a cartoon feel, backed by an Arabian style backing track which gives the theme a nice feel. The range of stacked wilds, instant win awards and free spins make for decent combination too.
Get lucky with those extra wilds and this genie could make your jackpot wishes come true if fortune is smiling. I found it to be a medium variance game which is one of Pragmatic Play’s best to date. If you like the theme, NetEnt’s Arabian Nights is very good as it offers life-changing jackpots!
