Genie’s HiLo is an interesting little game from Playtech which combines a hearty slice of luck with a small amount of skill. It’s not a slot machine but there’s no harm in trying something a bit different every now and again. The Genie in question is a scantily clad girl who proffers a selection of playing cards in your direction – read on to find out why.
As you can see from the screenshot above, Genie’s HiLo is played on just one screen and features the above-mentioned genie offering the player a choice of playing cards. You must pick one and then decide whether the next one drawn will be higher or lower, red or black. Just one deck is used in this game and Aces are low.
How To Play Genie’s Hi Lo
The first thing you need to do is choose your bet level and this is done with the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ symbols below the reels. Once done, click the ‘Confirm’ button then choose you starting card (or use the ‘Autopick’ option).
Now you must decide how to proceed with the betting and you have four basic choices:
There are also four more advanced options:
- Higher Black
- Higher Red
- Lower Black
- Lower Red
The odds for each choice differ depending on it’s likelihood of happening and the potential winnings for a particular selection are displayed above the ‘Confirm’ button. Note that this is the total winnings, not just the win for this pick.
Once you’ve made your selection you are prompted to pick another card which will reveal whether or not you are a winner. You can now collect that win or risk it and carry on for another go. Eleven correct wins in a row are possible.
This is an interesting game because it introduces an element of skill into what looks like a random selection. You can make a cautious bet with low potential winnings or go for a a riskier punt with a higher payout. The table to the right displays the RTPs for the various betting choices but this is not a helpful guide if you want to know the odds of a particular outcome.
