Blueprint gaming are the storytellers in this Aladdin-themed slot that majors in heavy-duty animation and character development then shoves a load of bonus games on top of them! This Genie Jackpots slot game, developed alongside Ash Gaming, is very obviously tied up with the big Aladdin films, with its big, friendly Genie booming out his instructions and congratulations in some nicely animated sequences.
This is a complex and sophisticated slot which engages players with a full slate of effects, so be prepared to dive into a magical world of wins.
This is a great looking game, really one of the best on the market at the moment. It’s got style and humour throughout its design. The Genie shows up all the time and is very welcome as he’s delivering big wins. The bonus rounds – including the monkey – are all really nicely animated, without the animations getting the way of actual gameplay.
The main screen features a backdrop of crowds with the reels in the front. The spin button is a magic lamp, with a very simple control panel at the bottom, basically, it’s just information windows rather than a lot of controls other than spin and Autospin.
Ash Gaming is the developer of this game, in partnership with Blueprint. Ash has been around since the year 2000 and has a good rep in the business. Among their favourites are the Rubik’s Slot, Wild Gambler, and Time Machine, and these show that they can master genres across the gaming field.
Blueprint is massive, one of the biggest gaming and casino companies in the world.
Genie Jackpots slot machine has a lot of sophisticated extras, but the basics are pretty simple. It’s a five-reel game with a five-by-three grid that gives you 15 symbols on the screen after every spin. Across those symbols run 20 pay-lines – following the usual sort of paths – that help to deliver a theoretical return to player of 96.49% (check this on the site you’re playing at), with a maximum single win of 50,000 coins from betting that runs from 0.2 to 1,000 coins. (Always check bet limits, coin size and exact figures on the actual machine that you are playing.)
The Pay-table is dominated by cartoony graphics on a Middle Eastern fantasy and fairy tale theme.
At the bottom of the value charts, are a run of 10 to Ace in playing card symbols, done in a suitably Arabian script. The 10, Jack and Queen all pay four times stake for 3, 10 times for four, and 100 times for a full-house of five. The King pays 10, 40, and 200, and so does the Ace.
Then we hit the higher paying symbols, which are very generous. A pair of crossed scimitars pay 20 for a set of three, 100 for 4, and 250 for five. The same figures are on offer for the Aladdin’s lamp symbol. A Genie’s hat pays 40, 140, and 300.
Genie Jackpots slot game’s logo is a super stacking symbol that can appear on all reels. It pays 2X for a pair, 50 for three, 200 for four, and 400 for five. A monkey is the Wild, and it pays double for a pair, 100 for three, 400 for four, and 500 for five.
Then we hit the bonuses. The 3 Wishes Power Spin can be triggered randomly on any game turn. It delivers one of five possible bonuses. The Genie Win Spin gives a big award from the “Genie Jackpots” subsequent bonus game. The “Infectious Monkey Wild” (interesting name!) makes golden wilds “infectious” and will turn neighbouring symbols wild. The “Genie Wild” bonus turns a random position on the reels into a Genie Wild. A “Bonus” awards another bonus. And the “5-of-a-kind” symbol delivers a guaranteed five across win.
The Magic Carpet Bonus, delivered by its own symbol or the “bonus” symbol from the Magic Lamp bonuses detailed above opens a choice of games that could win you up to 1,000x times your total bet. This is a ladder game with the Monkey symbol trying to jump along a row of flying magic carpets on the way to a big win. The “collect” symbol ends the bonus game.
The treasure chest bonus offers the chance to win a big prize from the Genie’s Cave, up to a maximum of 100 times your total bet.
All these feature symbols are Scatters.
This is a great selection of bonus features and gives a lot of variation in the standard gameplay that players are bound to love.
This is borne out by the figures which have featured in a lot of British casinos and is a featured game in many of them.
This is a Flash game and should play on your mobile device of choice.
This is a complex and sophisticated game, but it’s very easy to play. It has the modern style of screen controls with a big green spin button to the right of the reels, and a Bet window to the left of the reels that you can set to climb up a ladder – this is a total bet number rather than bet-per-line – or back down again. The Autospin control is in the top right-hand corner of the screen and has a sophisticated set-up to let you tailor your autoplay.
The main game information is across the bottom of the screen. On the left is the balance, in the centre, the bet amount, and to the right, the amount last won.
If you’ve played any slot game you won’t have any problem in finding your way around this game.
The first thing to say about this game is that we’ve seen a couple of different versions of this game with slightly different controls.
Then, to get onto the meat of things, we think this game is magic. There’s a lot going on, with bonuses that can trigger just like magic. Some players will not like the fact that there’s no classic free-spin round, but that shouldn’t be a problem for anyone who likes varied gameplay.
A good top prize and a good RTP have added bonuses in a game that should have you heading to the bazaar straight away.
