Like gold mines or treasure hunters, Arabian nights will always be a staple theme of the slots world, with its opulent riches at the end of an adventure personifying the thinking behind the entire industry. As such, there are a lot of Arabian Nights-themed slots flying around and slots following the theme need to be at the top of their game so they won’t be forgotten about for the next thousand years.
Genie Wild has a name that pretty explicitly states what the slot is about. Developed by Quickfire, part of Microgaming, Genie Wild, along with her pet monkey, takes you into a tent filled with riches, luxurious cushions, and smouldering lamps so that you can try and obtain the treasures.
At a glance, the slot looks pretty standard in terms of design decisions, but it has a certain feel to it that is inviting and very fun. The five reels feature a plethora of symbols including a chest of gold, jewels, fruit, a monkey, and the symbols A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9. The latter group being lower in value.
The game is a fairly typical 5 reels, 25 paylines, with stakes ranging from 25p to £50 and a non-progressive jackpot of up to £10,000 and has, like most of the good slots, Wilds, Scatters, Free Spins. Additionally, you have the chance to earn Echoes as well – which can be converted into additional free spins.
The Wilds come in the form of a genie, who looks mildly like the cool girl in every Disney film who chews gum, and it is these symbols that give the game its name. This Genie Wild can replace any symbol except the Scatter symbol.
The Scatter symbol is represented by a striped bottle that looks like it would definitely be confiscated at airport security. Three of them together then set off the Free Spins round which lasts for 10 extra spins. Unfortunately, this round is not extendable, but it does, however, make wilds extendable, making better combinations more likely.
Overall, Genie Wild is very fun slot that uses a tried and tested formula to give you the best and most enjoyable experience as possible when playing slots machines. The £10,000 jackpot will certainly transform you into your own Genie, and allow you to fulfil your own wishes.
