Launched in 2020, Wheel of Wishes is a welcome addition to the progressive jackpot slots at JackpotCity Casino. It’s also the first game from Alchemy Gaming, a software provider creating exclusive content for Microgaming.
What makes Wheel of Wishes different from other jackpot games? For starters, the fact that it has a WowPot! It is a progressive jackpot that starts at 2 million. In addition, it has three other jackpots that could possibly be up for grabs.
Available to play at JackpotCity Online Casino since 1998, Wheel of Wishes offers great gameplay in a safe and secure environment. Let’s find out more about this game, how it works and what special features can be expected.
Theme, Visuals, Sounds
Wheel of Wishes is a visually appealing game with an Arabian fantasy theme. The backdrop of the game is set in the desert, while the rest of the game and the symbols all display soft colours for an almost tranquil experience. At the top of the screen, players will notice the four different progressive jackpot totals. The jackpots keep growing as more players contribute, but we’ll explain how this works further down.
How to Play Wheel of Wishes
Once logged into the casino, players can either look for the game in the Jackpots section. Alternatively, you can type in Wheel of Wishes in the search bar to launch the slot. Upon opening the game, players will notice the jackpot totals at the top of the game screen, with a Power Mode button to the left. This button will increase the chances of triggering the jackpot bonus, however, keep in mind that the bet will automatically increase by 10x. To start playing, simply click/tap the Spin button which is located to the right of the screen. Players will also find the payout table and adjustable bet settings on the right.
Special Game Features
The symbols include all things magical:
- ruby necklaces;
- bottles of potion;
- spell books;
- treasure chests;
- Genie’s lamps;
- club, heart, diamond, and spade of playing card suits.
There is also a Wild symbol, which can take the place of other symbols to complete possible winning combinations. Plus, there's a Scatter which can trigger a Power Spin when 2 of these symbols land on the reels. When this occurs, giant high and bonus wheel symbols will spin, with reels 1 and 5 turning into random high symbols.
Wheel of Wishes Jackpots
When a full bonus wheel lands on any of the reels, the Wheel of Wishes jackpot bonus is triggered. So, one of the four jackpots will be awarded. Players will get the chance to spin the multi-colored wheel, with each segment of the wheel representing one of the jackpots:
- blue for the Mini;
- green for the Minor;
- red for the Major;
- yellow for the Wowpot Jackpot.
A progressive jackpot works as follows: each pot will start at a minimum amount and the more wagers are contributed, the higher the amount will be. When a jackpot has been won, the current amount will be added to the winner’s balance. Then, the jackpot will reset to the predetermined amount. In the case of Wheel of Wishes, the Mini jackpot starts at 10 credits, while the Minor and Major jackpots start at 100 and 50,000 credits each, with the Wowpot! starting at a minimum of 2 million.
Coin and Bet Size Setting
Wheel of Wishes has 5 reels and 10 paylines and can be played in a variety of coin sizes, with a minimum bet of 0.10 and a max bet of 25 credits per spin. Players, however, need to keep in mind that when they activate the Power Spin feature, the current bet will automatically increase by 10x.
Large Jackpot Winners
Since Wheel of Wishes was launched in 2020, all four jackpots have paid out numerous times, with the Minor jackpot paying out the most. Recent big winning amounts, however, include 5.3 million in August 2022 and 2.4 million in September 2022.
