Genie Jackpots Slot
I have been a big fan of Millionaire Genie from 888 for a long time – and thought that there were no better genie of the lamp themed slots out there. Genie Jackpots from Blueprint Gaming might well have changed my mind!
This is an entertaining and feature packed slot, which has the right mix of a fast and varied pace and good humor to become a real hit. While the multi-million progressive jackpot of the 888 game might not be here, there are still plenty of ways to win big – especially via the ’Magic Carpet’ bonus round.
This page explains how you can unlock those wins from the Genie Jackpots slot – then shows you how the slot is setup after that.

Playing Genie Jackpots
You can win from lining up symbols on the reels, through the genies ‘3 wishes’ on reel feature or through the 2 unique bonus games.
Regular wins on any of the 20 win-lines start at 2 of a kind (for the monkey wilds and genie jackpot logos). The single biggest prize is 500 coins for 5 of the monkeys on a win-line. This symbol will also substitute for any of the other regular symbols – though not the bonus ones. Next in the payouts comes the logos, at 400 for 5 with the crown at 300 then crossed swords and golden jug at 250 for 5. There are playing card symbols ace down to 10 making up the smaller wins.
Logos come ‘super stacked’ which means getting one or more full rows of them is relatively common. Combined with the wilds (which can increase dramatically during the ‘wish’ features) this means you can end up with several win lines hitting at the same time relatively frequently.
The 3 wishes feature really keeps things fresh in the base game. This is triggered at random. The genie will appear from his lamp (which is also the spin button) and appear large in front of the reels. He will tell you to choose from 1 of 3 golden lamps which appear above the reels. Each lamp will reveal one of 5 different bonuses.
#1 Genie Win Spin: Your next spin will get you a big win, guaranteed.
#2 Infectious Monkey Wilds: The monkey with the hat will propagate more wilds by ‘infecting’ the symbols around current wilds. You can end up with multiple wins.
#3 Genie Wild: Here the genie places extra wilds on the reels, up to 6 when I played. You might also get a 2x bonus attached to this, though not always.
#4 Bonus Feature: This triggers one of the two break out bonus games at random.
#5 5 of a Kind: The next spin will get you at least one 5 of a kind win.
Break-out Bonus Features
There are two bonuses on separate screens. These are triggered by hitting a bonus symbol in reels one and three, then one of the two special symbols in the 5th reel. As is common in most slots, the final reel will speed up when you hit the first 2 symbols.
The first bonus is the Magic Carpet round, you have to click to move the monkey along a path of magic carpets, which have progressively bigger prizes attached. There are two screens worth, with the 2nd one including some big money prizes. If you reveal a ‘collect’ sign then your game is over. Sometimes the genie will arrive and enhance your bonus round, though this did not yet happen for me!
The other game is a simple game, the Genie will smash a chest, which spills out gold coins and other jewels, giving you up to 100x your total bet in prizes. This is not interactive, though the win is always welcomed.
How the Genie Jackpots Slot Works
This is a 20 win line video slot with 5 reels each containing 3 rows of symbols. The lines are fixed, so you only need to decide on your bet amount before playing. The minimum bet is just 20c per spin, with the maximum a giant $1000. There is an autoplay function available.
There is exotic Arabic music that plays with this slot, this only happens when you spin the reels. Other notable sound effects include the hearty laugh of the genie. The graphics are excellent with a cloudy scene around the reels and sharp and detailed work on the symbols. When the 3D avatar of the genie appears from his lamp you can’t fail to be impressed by the graphics.

Genie Jackpots – Conclusion
It is great to see some competition in the genie of the lamp niche and this slot certainly gives Millionaire Genie a run for its money. While the break out bonuses are the place where you will win the bigger prizes, I enjoyed the on-reel lamp features better. These broke up the game-play enough to keep the game engaging, and provided some nice wins too.
