Wheel of Wishes slot machine is from Microgaming and it could literally make all your wishes come true. The Arabian Nights theme of this game is somehow enchanting and very easy on the eye. The colour scheme is almost soothing but, just bear in mind, that your peace and tranquility may be abruptly interrupted if you drop the two million-plus Wowpot! Microgaming released this online slot machine in February 2020.
The five-reel grid sits square in the center of the screen. It contains both lower-paying and higher-paying symbols. The lower-paying symbols are the playing card suits and the circle whilst the higher-paying symbols are more mystical like pendants, potion bottles, spell books, and treasure chests. No wish-granting game could be complete, of course, without a magic lamp! The wild is represented by a purple and gold square with the word Wild jumping out of it and the scatter is the Wheel of Wishes symbol itself.
If you land at least two wheel scatters, you will activate the power spins mode. Three or more scatters will also land you a prize.
During the power spins mode reels one and five will become stacked with high-paying symbols whilst the center reels will effectively turn into a 3×3 reel grid. These are the power reels, and you can win some amazing prizes with them, not least of which the chance to spin for the jackpots.
One interesting feature of this slot is that you can opt for the power mode to permanently activate the bonus round of power spins. It costs more, of course, but that is balanced by chance to win more.
The Wheel of Wishes slot machine game is what is a progressive jackpot game but not just any old progressive jackpot. This a Wowpot game, the award-winning progressive jackpot format created by Microgaming. Wowpots are four-tiered, the lowest is seeded at 10.00, the highest at 2,000,000! Yes, two million and that’s just to start with. The longer it goes unclaimed, the higher it gets!
When you land a wheel scatter entirely on the center reel you will be awarded a spin of the wheel and a chance to win one of the four jackpot prizes.
Wheel of Wishes is a pleasant and almost relaxing game to play. The format is simple and intuitive and will be familiar to most players. The WowPot keeps things interesting and really could help make your wishes come true. Stakes range from 0.20 to 20.00, though if you activate the Power Bet feature, the minimum stake rises to 2.00 and the maximum stake rises to 200.00. As is usual for the WowPot slots, the return to player percentage is a little on the low side, scraping in at only 93.34%. This is offset, however, by the potential to win a huge jackpot and the fact that this is a low-volatility slot machine game, meaning you can expect to win lots of smaller wins along the way in your quest for something bigger and more substantial.
