Genie’s Riches Slot Review
|Bonus round||Yes (1)|
Genie’s Riches is an online slot from Aristocrat that has accrued many fans for the time it has been in existence. From the story of Aladdin, Genies are no longer scary monsters but symbols of good luck and sources of wealth. Genie’s Riches slot is based on that storyline, and the in-house Genie will award you plenty of decent rewards for playing.
Contrary to most people’s expectation of a Genie, where they would expect to see a massive man with a huge turban and beards, the Genie in this aristocrat slot is a beautiful dark-haired lady magician who will gladly make your wish for riches come true through the wilds, scatter symbols and free spins in the game. The background is made of stone that resembles the land that Aladdin and his friends came from, and is excellent as it will not distract you. The reels have a luxurious royal purple hue.
Genie’s Riches has the typical symbols you would expect on a genie-themed slot; a genie’s magic carpet, the Genie herself, plenty of treasures and the usual 9-A poker card symbols tweaked slightly to fit the theme. The game is colourful and entertaining and despite its few free spins, guarantees you a win of up to 2000x your line bet.
How to play Genie’s Riches
Like many of Aristocrat slots, Genie’s Riches is a high variance easy to play game that has 5 reels and three columns. Depending on the symbols, landing two or three adjacent to each other from left to right gives you an award. The scatters payout in any position or direction. The card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, and K are the lower-paying symbols, with 5x for three, 25x for four symbols, and 100x for a full line of five. A is worth more than the other card symbols, as it wins you 15x, 75x and 200x for three, four, and five As on the reels.
Symbols and Bonus to look out for
The most high-value symbols in the game are the Genie and her treasures and will pay out on active paylines. These include the flaming torch, crossed scimitars, magic rug, and jewel-encrusted golden bracelet, then finally the Genie herself. Just two of the Genie warrant a 10x multiplier, while 5 of her on your reels win you 2000x your stake. The Genie also happens to be the wild and can replace all, but the scatter to complete you some winning lines.
The treasure symbol is associated with the game’s bonus feature. The fact that Genie’s Riches has only one bonus may be discouraging, but the bonus itself is quite valuable and yields huge returns for patient and lucky players.
The bonus is called ‘Feature Game’ and is activated when you land three or more treasure scatters on your base game. It includes 5 free spins for 3-5 scatters. As you play your free spins, blue genie lamp scatter symbols will appear and accumulate. The free spins in the feature can be retriggered by landing more treasure symbols on the reels. The bonus feature takes about two-three minutes, assuming that you do not retrigger the free spins.
When you exhaust your free spins, you get to play the Genie Spin, where the lamps you accumulated earlier in the game are added to your reels. The lamps are sticky, which means that they will persist throughout your Genie Spin and increase your feature winnings.
The high-value symbols do a fantastic job of making up for the few free spins and only one bonus feature. The game’s incredible graphics also make this Genie-themed slot an entertaining choice for online slot fans.
