The stars are especially large and bright in the velvet eastern sky. The shine like diamonds, dazzling the mortal eyes, and the magic lamp softly glitters in their light. Step into the world of the Arabian Nights, release the powerful Genie from his ancient prison, and see what your reward will be! This is a review of the “Genie’s Fortune” video slot game by Betsoft Gaming.
A Genie or Jinn is a magical creature that comes from Arabic mythology. Genies are supernatural, sapient beings that live side by side with humans. They are not decidedly good or evil, so they can be helpers as well as enemies. In the famous story “Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp” Aladdin finds a lamp in which a Genie has been imprisoned for thousands of years. The Genie must fulfill the wishes of the owner of the lamp, and with his help, Aladdin becomes wealthy and powerful and marries the beautiful princess Badroulbadour, the daughter of the sultan.
“Genie’s Fortune" is a 5-reel, 3-line video slot with 30 paylines and an RTP of 95,61%. Coin values range from €0.02 to €1, default minimum bet is €0.02, and the default maximum bet is €300.
The lower-paying symbols are the Cobra Basket, the Bowl of Fruit, and the Ruby. The higher-paying symbols are the two crossed Swords, the Golden Ingots, and the Camel. The Flying Carpet symbol is Wild.
In Bitcasino, you can use BTC, ETH or SOC to place bets, and the game runs equally smoothly on both mobile and desktop devices.
When a Magic Carpet flies onto the first reel, the magic Carpet Ride bonus feature is triggered. The Carpet will zoom across the reels from left to right turning all the symbols that are on its way into Bonus Credits. Mind, the Carpet does not fly during the Free Spins game.
The maximum payout for this bonus feature is 3,300 credits.
This bonus feature is triggered when a mischievous Monkey jumps onto the second reel. You will then need to click one of the icons that surround the Monkey. Once you click an icon, the Monkey will snatch it and start shaking it like a fruit tree to reveal a juicy reward. You can keep clicking the icons until you reveal the Collect symbol.
The maximum payout for this bonus feature is 8,400 credits.
This feature is triggered if three or more Treasure Chest symbols appear on your reels, in any position. 3 symbols will get you 5 free spins, 4 symbols grant 10 free spins, and for 5 symbols you receive 20 free spins.
If you see three Magic Lamps land on your reels, get ready for the bonus Genie Feature! You will be taken to a new screen and the magic Genie that appears from the Lamp will offer to fulfill three of your wishes. There will be 6 wishes altogether: Wealth, Fame, Everlasting Love, Travel, Wisdom, and Long Life. Out of these, you can click three and get a reward for each.
The maximum payout that you can get from this bonus feature is 10,560 credits.
“Genie’s Fortune” is a fun, interactive slot game with its visuals a bit on the old-fashioned side, reminiscent of the old Disney Aladdin animation and the video slots of the previous generation: somewhat gaudy but cure. The music has a mechanical ding to it, a very traditional “Arabian Nights” tune that is only to be expected. There are plenty of bonus features to go around, all of them well-known and uncomplicated, but rewarding all the same. All in all, this is a nice game to give a spin too if you are feeling nostalgic for some simple, bright and rewarding slot game.
