Genie Wild is set in an Arabian tent which stands out behind the reels, and as such there is a strong ancient Arabian blend to the game. It brings the ancient world to life mixed with a touch of Aladdin! This is nothing new with slot games. You’ll have seen it in many other titles. Genie Wild has five reels and contains 25 paylines in total.
There are plenty of icons in play in this game. The lower paying ones are the usual 9, 10, J, Q, K and the A while the better icons include a green gem, an overflowing chest, a monkey and a bowl of fruit. The genie is the Wild as the name of the game suggests while the bottle makes up the Scatter icon.
It would not be a NextGen Gaming offering if there weren’t some features in play! The first one for Genie Wild is the Free Spins feature. You are required to land three bottle Scatter icons across the reels to activate this feature. When the feature starts you get 10 free spins. During the free spins if the genie Wild appears it will turn into an expanding Wild which will open up more winning opportunities. This is not a feature that can be retriggered.
The other feature in Genie Wild is the Gamble feature, a constant among many NextGen games. You’ll probably know how this works by now but if you don’t then each time you get a base game win you can try and double your dosh by hitting the ‘Gamble’ button down in the bottom right corner of the machine. To double your money successfully guess the colour of the next card. To quadruple it choose the suit correctly. Do not guess wrong though else you lose your win.
Genie Wild has a pretty weak RTP rating of just 95.35%. That is well below the average and not in the favour of the player at all.
