If you love the mystique of ancient Arabian folklore, then Genie Wild, an online slot game developed by Microgaming might just succeed in rekindling your passion for the far east. This slot game is similar to Sultan’s Gold and Arabian Nights, which possess a similar theme.

Unleashing Genie Wild

Genie Wild is an online slot game with twenty-five fixed paylines and five reels, that are set against a background featuring an Arabian styled luxury tent. The tent is equipped with a lantern that hangs from the ceiling of the tent, thereby casting a glowing red light towards the back of the reels. There are also present, elegantly decorated comfort cushions that are spread all over the tent's interior.

This game has both low value and high-value symbols, with the low-value ones represented by the standard playing card values of A, J, K, Q, 9 and 10. The high-value symbols include a happy looking monkey, an emerald, a bowl of fruit and a treasure chest that's literally overflowing with gold coins.

While playing Genie Wild, you get to see short phrases under the reels such as ‘She's A Real Gem’ and ‘May All Your Wishes Come True’. There are two special symbols in this game, and they are the Genie Bottle Scatter symbol and a Genie Wild icon.

The Bonus Features

There is a Free Spins bonus round in this online slot game, which can be triggered when you land a minimum of three Genie Bottle Scatter symbols. By doing so, you will earn 10 Free Spins in the process. Whilst in the free spins bonus round if you land a Genie Wild icon, it will start to act wild and expand to all the available positions on a reel, thus helping you gain the chance of acquiring winning combos.

The only drawback to the free spins round in this online slot game is that you cannot reactivate more of the free spins even if you land additional scatter symbols. You can only trigger the Free spins round from the base game.

By clicking on the ‘Gamble’ button located under the reels, you will activate the Gamble round where you will be expected to accurately predict the colour or suit of a playing card that is drawn. Correct predictions can lead to your payout getting multiplied by 2x (for guessing the right colour of card) and up to 4x (for correctly predicting the suit). However, a wrong guess and you lose all your winnings.

Final Thoughts

The only drawback to an otherwise exciting online slot game is the fact that you cannot retrigger more free spins from the free spins round. The graphics, animation and soundtrack are simple and basic, while the gameplay is equally fun and exciting.
