Genie Jackpots slot is another game by Blueprint Gaming and Big Time Gaming’s MegaWays series where a magic lamp can deliver plenty of treasure. It has 6 reel machine where the number of ways to win varies but can reach an enormous 15,625 ways.
With the addition of the MEGAWAYS™ mechanic, this game has a broad specter of features we already are familiar with from other BTG games. That said, it does feel like Big Time Gaming can take most credit for its features, instead of its actual developer. Nevertheless, it’s not necessarily a bad thing as the collaboration has lad to a spectacular game with some of the best features seen to date.
To name a few, here are some of the base game features that you encounter on any spin. The list contains all the features that are distinguished as Power Spins:
BONUS MEGAWAYS™ – this is a fancy way of calling a bonus tease – whenever a bonus symbol lands on the reel, the reels dramatically will continue spinning until you find out whether it’s a hit or a miss.
WILD MEGAWAYS™ – these are just wild symbols that can land anywhere on the reels.
GENIE WILDS – here’s where a bit of randomization comes in place. The Genie may appear at any point during the base game and turn a reel into a full-on wild reel. It can hit any number of reels at any amount. The Genie can also provide a multiplier on reels hit more than once.
GENIE WINSPIN – this feature allows mystery symbols to appear at any position on the reels, revealing either a paying or a wild symbol.
However, that’s not it for the feature coverage in this Genie Jackpots Megaways review. The bonus game is where it’s at. When the game reveals three or more scatter symbols, it enters the bonus. More scatter symbols can grant more spins.
Genie Jackpots Megaways Review: Bonus features
Once the game enters the bonus game, the player is presented with an option between four different genie lamps. This grants a choice between four different bonus features.
Here’s a list of all four of the available opportunities for bonus features:
Mystery Wishes – during this bonus, the Genie adds a bunch of random mystery symbols, similar to how it works in the base game. This seems to be one of the worst features out of all four. Especially, given the fact that there is no option for retriggers during this round.
Unlimited Multiplier – now, this is the real deal. This bonus works similar to Bonanza and some other BTG games. After every spin, a multiplier is added to the multiplier pool. Additionally, there is a chance to win several free spins with two or more scatter symbols. This can pile up some huge wins, with the right amount of circumstance.
Genie Streak – in the Genie Streak, every symbol connection is held for a respin to increase chances for a more significant win and a larger combination of megaways. Also, if the streak fills all of the reel positions and presents a full-screen, the bonus reveals a choice between three genie lamps and may reward 1-3 free spins.
Locking Wild – during this bonus, every wild on the reels 2, 3, 4 and five will remain locked. Once they do, they are fixed for maximum megaways, except for reel 1 and 6. Similar to the Genie Streak, fully covered reels 2-5 will grant the possibility for more respins.
This is by no surprise a really good slot I would recommend to try. The gameplay is exciting and win potential is exciting. I even like the design and it looks good on mobile.
