Wheel of Wishes pokies is the new pokies game which is a five-reel, ten-payline title with exciting features and the ability to win life-changing jackpot prizes. Once loaded, the game takes players to Arabia, where a vibrant soundtrack and bold graphics immerse players into the theme. Genie lamps and other magical symbols are found on the reels to help players reach the cave of riches.
When you unlock the Power Spin feature by earning two or more wheel scatters in the game you will transform the 1st and 5th reel to have high-paying stacked symbols. One giant symbol will form across the center reels and give players the opportunity to earn a full matching reel set which brings about major winning potential.
Find a giant wheel symbol on the center in 3×3 size during Power Spin to activate the Wheel of Wishes Jackpot Bonus in the pokies game. This option provides players with the ability to win one of four jackpots; the Mini, Minor, Major or the recently revamped WowPot.
All pay symbols including wilds can appear fully stacked and start with five low-value icons – purple button, blue clubs, green diamonds, orange-red hearts and red spades – awarding 2x to 3.75x your bet for a single five of a kind. The premiums are a purple gem amulet, a set of potion vials, a mystical book, a treasure chest bursting with gold coins and a magical lamp. Hit five on a line to win 4x to 10x your bet. An intricate icon marked with the word itself is the wild symbol, substituting for all regular symbols and yielding 50x your stake when five across the reels. Since you can hit full screens with any of the symbols, it pitches the overall win potential to 37.5x to 500x your stake. The Wheel of Wishes icon is the bonus symbol on this pokies.
There are no random or free spin features other than the Wheel of Wishes Jackpot bonus game. The pokies has though two modes – Default and Power Mode. Activating the latter will increase the bet size by a factor 10, e.g. a 1.00 base bet turns into 10.00 credits bet. The game will play in permanent Power Spin mode, making it easier to trigger the jackpot bonus game. In essence, more chances of winning a jackpot.
To trigger said Power Spin mode in the standard game, you will need to land two Wheel of Wishes bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. The three center reels are combined for one spin, containing giant 3×3 premiums and a 3×3 bonus wheel symbol. The outer reels will land a randomly stacked premium. The result will be anywhere between nothing if the symbols in the middle and outside don’t match and a full screen of a premium. The third possible result is a Wheel of Wishes bonus symbol landing in full view to trigger then the jackpot bonus game.
The four jackpots
The game will lead to a separate screen, displaying the four jackpots – Mini, Minor, Major and WoW Pot as well as the coveted Wheel of Wishes with 20 segments. Similar to the Mega Moolah series, you will get one spin on the wheel with a guaranteed win of one of the jackpots. The size and number of segments are not a true indication for your chance to win any of the jackpots, that decision is made by a Random Number Generator. However, the higher the bet the bigger the chance to trigger the jackpot bonus game. The jackpots have the following seed values:
- Mini: 10 credits
- Minor: 100 credits
- Major: 50 credits
- WOW Pot: 2,000,000 credits
The value displayed is the amount you will win in your currency. A fixed percentage of all bets made across the Microgaming network will contribute to the jackpots. Once won, the jackpots will be reset to the seed value. While the lower two will be instantly credited, the two main jackpots will go through a confirmation process to ensure that they indeed were triggered.
