Genie Wild is an online slot from Microgaming and this game has an ancient Arabian feel as you might gather from the title – it’s a theme we’ve seen before in games such as Arabian Nights and Sultan’s Gold.
Genie Wild is a five reel and twenty five payline slot set inside a luxurious tent; lanterns hanging from the ceiling cast a red glow behind the reels and decorated cushions are scattered liberally around the interior.
The main symbols are a bowl of fruit, a green gem, a chest overflowing with gold coins and a cheerful-looking monkey. Lower value symbols are 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. As you play the game short phrases such as ‘she’s a real gem’ and ‘may all your wishes come true’ appear underneath the reels.
Special symbols are the genie wild and a bottle scatter which presumably contains the genie.
No self-respecting slot is complete without a free spins round for the luckiest players and Genie Wild is no exception. To trigger them you’ll need to land three of the bottle scatter symbols and for that you’ll win ten free goes.
Is that all, you ask? Of course not, we reply – during this bonus feature the genie symbol will become an expanding wild which will provide you with many more opportunities to create winning combinations, but only if you land it of course.
Unfortunately you can’t re-trigger more free spins while playing this phase.
You clearly like gambling as you’re reading a review of an online slot machine so you will definitely be interested in the gamble feature. After each win you can opt to try and double your money by clicking the ‘Gamble’ button in the bottom right hand corner.
You can now predict whether the next playing card will be red or black for a 2x win or predict the correct suit for a 4x win.
Genie Wild is a pretty basic game but one which is worth a few minutes of your time; the music is suitably Arabic, as is the general feel of the game. The free spins round is very welcome and if the graphics aren’t exactly top notch, they’re not far off.
