Not many progressive online slots can challenge Mega Moolah’s dominance of the genre, but the game may finally be meeting its match right! Wheel of Wishes is due for its general release in February, but you can play it at our casino more than a month earlier.
The new progressive jackpot slot created by recently established Alchemy Gaming for Microgaming goes live at River Belle Casino on 7 January. If that even cannot tempt you from the tables, you can immerse yourself in the best online blackjack with us instead!
When the game does go live, it does so with a relaunched WOWPot! that has a seed jackpot of 2 million. That is a whole million more than the world record-breaking African safari themed slot – and, as you know, it only gets bigger from there.
A Fairy Tale Debut
In November, Microgaming announced that Alchemy Gaming was joining the provider’s independent game developer’s club. What better theme to introduce players to what a new studio has to offer than one of the best-loved tales in the world?
You could see some wishes of your own granted on the new online slot’s 5 reels and 10 paylines from January. The reels are packed with symbols of wealth, such as treasure chests bursting with golden treasures, amulets, and precious stones. The lamp, as well as a Wild and a giant Wheel symbol, also appear.
Enticing Special Features
Before we introduce you to the special features of Microgaming and Alchemy’s new progressive online slot, Wheel of Wishes, we need to mention Power Mode. You will need to place a side bet of 10x your stake if you want to take the option. What you get for it are mega symbols on every spin as well as vastly improved chances of triggering the progressive jackpot bonus round.
Right, now on to the Wheel of Wishes special features.
One of the slot’s special features selects a high-value symbol at random. All icons on reels 1 and 5 will then transform into that symbol. As that happens, reels 2, 3, and 4 combine and form one massive reel filled with 3×3 Mega symbols.
The Wild can substitute for all regular symbols. You need to land at least 2 Scatters on any reel to trigger the Power Spins feature. The feature will take you deep into the genie’s treasure-filled cave, where you will receive several Free Spins.
If you land a giant wheel symbol during Power Spins, you will enter the round that almost every Wheel of Wishes player will hope to see. We are talking about the jackpot round, of course. Spinning the wheel could award you the WowPot! which starts at 2 million, the Major that starts at 50,000, the minor that starts at 100, or the Mini that starts at 10.
Exciting Gaming Ahead
No matter what aspect of Wheel of Wishes you consider, you have got to admit that it sounds like one of the most exciting progressive jackpot slots to be released in recent years. Not only is the game going to have a jackpot that is likely to rival Mega Moolah’s, it also has some truly innovative mechanics.
What’s more, we are told the slot has comfortable limits of 0.10 and 25.00 minimum and maximum bets, and that it very low volatility. The RTP and hit rate are yet to be announced, but knowing Microgaming, we are sure they are going to be generous.
