Slot Review: Wheel of Wishes by Microgaming and Alchemy GamingPublished April 30, 2020 by Elana K
Jackpot-hunters will enjoy Wheel of Wishes, the joint creation of Microgaming and Alchemy Gaming. Wheel of Wishes has 4 jackpots up for grabs: The Mini, Minor, Major, and the WowPot progressive jackpot, the latter of which starts at $2 million.
We’ve been waiting for a new progressive jackpot from Microgaming, and here it is! Wheel of Wishes is an intriguing new release from Microgaming and Alchemy Gaming. Set against a backdrop of sand dunes, the slot has an Arabian theme and a mysterious soundtrack that will accompany players in their quest for the progressive jackpot. Check it out at Microgaming online casinos.
Wheel of Wishes is a 5x3 slot with 10 paylines that’s playable on all devices. There’s a small betting range, between $.10 and $25, but because of the progressive jackpot that starts at $2 million, high-rollers may still be interested. The game is low volatility, but make sure to note the RTP, which is a low 93.34%. It may just be worthwhile if you get the max win of 500x the stake or, even better, the progressive jackpot.
Symbols include hearts, diamonds, clubs, and spades, a treasure chest, jeweled book, genie’s lamp, medallion necklace, potion, wilds, and scatters.
The progressive jackpot in Wheel of Wishes is a revamped WowPot, which is part of a huge Microgaming network that has already paid out over $1 billion in progressive jackpot prizes.
When 2 or more scatters land on the reels, the Power Spins feature is triggered. When 3, 4, or 5 scatters land, players will win 5, 50, and 500x their stake, respectively. In this round, 3x3 symbols can appear on the middle reels, and reels 1 and 5 will transform into a random high-value symbol.
Wheel of Wishes Jackpot Bonus
During the Power Spins, if a Bonus Wheel symbol lands fully in view, the Wheel of Wishes Jackpot Bonus is triggered. There are 4 jackpots up for grabs: Mini, Minor, Major, and the WowPot progressive jackpot, the latter of which is obviously the best!
To increase your chances of landing the Wheel of Wishes Jackpot Bonus, players can opt for Power Mode. This will increase the stake by 10, making the minimum bet $2, but the upside is that every spin becomes a Power Spin.
Jackpot-hunters will enjoy the joint creation of Microgaming and Alchemy Gaming, despite the stakes being fairly high for a better chance at hitting the WowPot. Without hitting any jackpots, the max win is only 500x the stake - not nothing, but not great, especially with an RTP of 93.34%. Of course, the possibility of striking the WowPot that starts at $2 million certainly makes this game appealing.
