- Queen, King or Ace

Genie Jackpots Megaways Slot Bonuses and Features
Free Spins Bonus. The Free Spins Bonus is triggered by 3 Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels simultaneously. 3 of these symbols will award you with 10 free spins, 4 will give you 12 free spins, 5 will give you 15 free spins and finally, 6 will give you 20 free spins. At the beginning of the bonus, you will initiate the Cave of Wonders and you must pick 1 of 4 lamps to reveal 1 of 4 Free Spins Rounds:
- Mystery Wishes. The Genie will add mystery symbols to the reels during the free spins and these can reveal any other symbol.
- Unlimited Multiplier. This is certainly the most exciting sounding feature and can be quite valuable. A multiplier is applied to each spin that increases by 1x for every spin. The Scatter symbol can award additional free spins, with 2 giving you another 5 free spins, 3 giving you another 1, 4 giving you 15, 5 giving you 20 and finally, 6 will give you 25 free spins. With that in mind, you can see how the Unlimited Multiplier Free Spins could certainly be very rewarding.
- Genie Streak. If, or hopefully when, you get a win during the Genie Streak Free Spins, the reels will hold any win and the other reels will respins to hopefully improve your current win. If the streak fills all the reel positions, then the Genie will appear to give you another 3 Lamps to give you between 1 and 3 additional free spins. Whatever is revealed will be added to the spins remaining panel.
- Locking Wild. As the name suggests, any Genie Wild symbols that appear during these free spins will lock in place on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. These reels will be maximum megaways unlike reels 1 and 6. If you collect enough Wild symbols to fill the reels, the Genie will appear to again give you 3 Lamps and award you with 1-3 free spins.
Bonus Wish Bet. This gives you the opportunity to buy the Cave of Wonders feature mentioned above and play a Free Spins Round with one of the 4 features. To do so you need to place a bet of 100x your stake.
Power Spin. On any random spin, the Genie can appear to offer you one of 4 features:
- Bonus Megaways. This will add Bonus symbols to your reels to hopefully trigger the Free Spins Bonus.
- Wild Megaways. This will add Wild symbols to the reels and is guaranteed to give you the maximum number of ways to win.
- Genie Wilds. The Genie will turn a reel into a Wild reel, and can even give this reel a multiplier of up to 5x.
Genie Winspin. This will add mystery symbols to the reel which reveal any other symbol to create a win.
Genie Jackpots has been a solid series from Blueprint Gaming before and we’ve enjoyed it. This time they’ve really spiced things up by getting a license to use Megaways from Big Time Gaming. Megaways has always proven popular so I think this was a good move from Blueprint Gaming, and they’ve really gone all out with Genie Jackpots Megaways slot to make the most of it. There are plenty of features on offer here, with the main focus being on free spins and the additional features available within them. You even have the option to buy the bonus but I wouldn’t recommend it. I’m pleased to say that this is a fun and rewarding slot that has certainly made the most of Megaways.
