Fans of Aladdin and his magic lamp are going to love this release. Provided for us by Nolimit City, Golden Genie and the Walking Wilds is a game with 5 reels, 3 rows, and 20 ways to land a winning combination. With a mysterious design and some very entertaining features, the game will surely be a lot of fun to play.
While most of the games that carry this theme revolves around Aladdin, this one is all about the magic genie. The providers did a great job of telling the amazing story of a thief that gets a taste of the royal life, a tale about love, and let us not forget all the magic that takes credit for the happenings.
The design is quite simple with the dark Agrabah sky in the background filled with clouds and pretty stars. The bright colors present on the reels beautifully contrast the darkness of the background. The soundtrack is traditional music with a hint of mysteriousness contributing to the theme a lot.
The symbols are very interesting and greatly designed. The lower-paid ones are represented by the usual colorful royals. The higher-paid symbols include tigers, snakes, magic lamps, Aladdin, and Jasmine as the highest paying symbol. The genie himself takes the role of both the wild and the scatter symbol.
The game has medium volatility which can be both good and bad at times, but you will still surely find yourself enjoying some amazing payouts thanks to the features provided. Players have the chance to win up to 9,583 times the stake in a single spin. The betting range is decent as well making that top payout sound even more impressive. The minimum bet is set at 0,20 and the maximum is at 100 coins per spin. The game has a 96,03% RTP, which rises to 96,36% during the Genie Parade feature.
The features of the game are something refreshing to experience and not miss. They are very creative and entertaining but most importantly provide the needed win. The first is the Genie Wishes feature that is triggered when the Aladdin symbol lands on the left side of a magic lamp symbol. The two are then turned into wilds and can carry 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, or 10x multipliers.
Then there is the Genie Lamps feature that can be triggered randomly on any spin. After that, reels 2 and 4 get filled with wilds and the best part is that winning combinations can occur in both ways. This means that instead of forming only from the first reel, the winning combinations can form from the last reel, raising your chances of scoring some money by a lot.
The best of the features has to be the Genie Parade feature that is triggered by landing at least three scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, which will provide you with a random number of free spins. All the triggering symbols get locked in place and one of them turns to gold. The golden genie and another randomly selected one are going to be moving one reel to the left on every spin. Every time they move their multiplier increases by one as well. When one of them falls off the reels their multiplier goes on to the other wild. Every genie that you land during the feature will move in the same way. The free spins will end once no genies are in view.
The game definitely is one of the better ones out there with this theme. It is nice that the provider put the focus on the genie here making it different from the rest in the industry. The features are the best part of it, especially the free spins which will reward you greatly. You will surely not regret taking this magical journey.
