In Wishes, Revolver Gaming has designed a classic slot machine with a bit more to offer than in a regular game. The slot is inspired by the story of the wish-granting Genie, and in this case it’s a female version of the creature that has been placed in this role. Before anything else, this will be one of the best looking 3-reel slots you’re going to find online, and that’s already impressive enough to make it worth looking into.
Otherwise, you’re looking at a game with 3 reels that manages to cram 9 lines in it. There are rewards of up to $15,000 being delivered on each line, with a couple of features available as well (Logo Wild, Bonus Scatters, Genie’s Gift Bonus Reel with 6 bonus features).
Betting and Prizes
The bet is set up for 9 active lines, so it goes as low as $0.09, allowing you to use a $0.01 wager for each possible combination. At the other end, the betting range stops at a maximum value of $90, where the line bet is $10.
The game will offer a jackpot of $15,000, in exchange for a combo of three wild symbols. Considering the 9 lines in play, the maximum potential for a single spin should be $135,000, so 1,500x the stake. It sounds pretty good so far, but with an RTP of 95%, the game still has room for improvement. There is also that random multiplier that one can get, so you might be able to get even more out of your winning combinations if you’re lucky.
Wishes Slot Features
Some features will be regulars, while others will be interesting, even for a modern slot machine.
To start with, check out the Wishes Logo, the wild feature in the game. Having these symbols appear several times on an active line can result in their own combo forming, with a payout of 1,500 coins. Even when they appear in one or two positions on a line, they are still useful, since they are used as replacements.
Another logo, this time with Genie’s Gift written on it, is going to be your scatter symbol. At least three need to appear on the screen, in any position, for you to get the bonus reel triggered. You see this bonus reel at the top of the regular reels, with its 6 bonus features. Sometimes, this bonus reel will also trigger at random, after a non-winning spin.
Genie’s Gift can spin to give you one of six possible rewards. One is the instant win, with a random cash prize. Another is the Reel Match Spin, which has 1 free spin where the 1st and the 3rd reels have matching symbols. Spin to Win is the third possibility, with free spins continuing to trigger until you get a total win of 3x the bet. Magic Multiplier will give you a random multiplier and 1 free spin. Random Wild Spins has 1 free spin to give, during which 1+ reels become wild. Finally, there are the Jewel Prize Spins, with 10 rounds to get through and with collectable jewels that can eventually trigger the Genie’s Gift again.
Theme & Design
It’s your typical Middle Eastern inspired design, which we’ve seen in a lot of other slot machines that involve the genie. That’s for the outside area, where you get the female Genie, buildings and the trees of an oasis. On the reels, you mostly get logos and various classic icons of Middle Eastern design (7s, Bar logos, etc).
I think you have plenty to love about this game, its graphics and features especially, but some room for improvement exists, RTP wise especially.
