Although I have been rubbing an IKEA lamp more than once, I never managed to release the genie. The same counts for any other bottle I tried, but maybe I have found a solution. It’s the day The Wish Master™ video slot got released at the NetEnt Casinos that I started to believe in a genie coming from a bottle. Even though I’ve seen many films about the wish master appearing from a bottle, I never believed they would make my wishes come true. Playing The Wish Master™ at one of the NetEnt Casinos is a whole different story, simply because we are talking about video slots, and with a bit of luck, video slots can make wishes come true. At least when you decide to play The Wish Master™ with real money and you manage to evoke the genie from its lamp, although I can tell you beforehand this won’t be that hard as you would think involving one single Scatter symbol. Uncommon for NetEnt video slots, The Wish Master™ video slot doesn’t ask for three Scatters to appear as one is more than enough to activate The Wish Master feature of which I tell you all about later on.
I am one of these persons that don’t believe in a genie promising to make three of my wishes come true, the reason I started to make my own wishes come true. Nevertheless, I can imagine that some of you wouldn’t see any harm in trying to reveal the genie from the bottle with the hope he can make at least some of your wishes come true. And why not, The Wish Master video slot is worth playing anyway, with many original features to offer. The genie, on the other hand, doesn’t look that friendly, but who cares, as long as he makes your wishes come true right? And if you have a good look at The Wish Master paytable, you will see that your luck isn’t only depending on the genie as this NetEnt game is featuring a Wild symbol too. But if you are serious about your wishes to come true, it’s better to start rubbing that IKEA lamp or play The Wish Master video slot with real money, hoping for the genie to appear. This is because the biggest wins can be made during the Wish Master feature. You’ll start with just one wish on the wish-meter, but just as in the traditional stories, the meter can go up to three wishes including Wilds and Multipliers.
If there’s one video slot that The Wish Master™ makes me think of, it’s definitely Arabian Nights, one of the pooled jackpots powered by NetEnt. The atmosphere is comparable, though the genie can’t be found in Arabian Nights™. While being transported to a hidden cave in the desert, the genie can appear at any moment to make your wishes come true. The reels are filled with mysterious items fitting the theme perfectly, but the best animation turns up when the Scatter Lamp appears anywhere on the reels. The other animations could fit any theme, while the music is perfect for The Wish Master™ adding a mysterious feeling to the game.
This 5-reel, 3-row and 20 bet lines counting video slot developed by NetEnt is offering many original features. But that’s not all as there are many betting options available too. The amount of bet lines is fixed though, which means you can’t change those, resulting in a minimum bet of 0.20. Not the lowest minimum bet available in a NetEnt Casino, but not the highest either, perfect for the average player. If you rather play with higher bets, you can make use of the 10 different levels upgrading your chances to win. Nothing more than that as the six coin values are responsible for higher wins. The coins range from 0.01 and 0.50 while the maximum bet goes up to 100.00.
The Wish Master Feature
While playing The Wish Master™ you’ll get the chance to win big as a maximum of 45.000 coins can be won on one single bet line. The opportunity to win big is mostly attributable to The Wish Master feature, triggered when one single Scatter Lamp appears anywhere on the reels. The moment it does, the genie is about to escape from its lamp activating an exciting feature for at least 10 spins. When the genie appears again during the 10 spins, the spins meter will turn back to 10, starting the feature all over again, but this time with two wishes fulfilled with a maximum of three wishes. These wishes range from extra Wild symbols, random Wilds, Expanding Wilds, x2 or x3 Multipliers and a whole Wild Reel, of which this last one definitely can make wishes come true.
First of all, there’s the standard Wild in the main game, making sure more winning combinations are made as this Wild symbol substitutes for any other symbol, except for the Scatter. The moment The Wish Master feature starts and the genie appears, he will throw one of the many wishes in the left corner of the game. This can be extra Wilds and Random Wilds, turning random symbols into Wild symbols. Then there’s the wish which will turn a whole reel into Wild, making sure even more winnings will appear. But the best opportunity to win will be when the Scatter appears a few times in a row. This because the genie will throw some extra wishes into the extra feature while the number of spins, in which these wishes keep on appearing, will switch back to 10. A nice combination of wishes, including a Multiplier up to x3, will be the best way to make sure wishes comes true.
Magical video slots
Those who know the major part of the NetEnt games suite will probably know that The Wish Master™ isn’t the only magical video slot around. Arabian Nights™ will fit the theme though, but magic can be found in many of the NetEnt slots. Think about the magic fireflies in Lights™, magic gateways in Magic Portals™ and magic tricks in Simsalabim™. Looking for magic you will find it in many NetEnt games, but looking for a personal wish master, I do recommend The Wish Master™ video slot.
