Born from Islamic theology, the Genie is a magical creature famed for his ability to grant wishes and is a common theme of casino slots. It is no surprise then that Quickspin has adopted this theme to put together the 5-reel, 3-row and 20 fixed paylines slot Genies Touch.
The developer has done a nice job with the graphics starting with the stunning background which include the marble laden floors and pillars of a magnificent terrace glowing purple in the pale light of the setting sun and shining stars. The game includes four wonderfully illustrated characters as the higher paying symbols and the bottom six symbols are different coloured gem stones. With great graphics comes great music as you have the opportunity to listen to some Middle-Eastern music that plays in the background or can be shut off independent of the sound effects. The sound effects are a combination of standard sounds that resemble what you might find in a number of other slots as well as thematic to make for a more believable game.
Wild symbol, Genie's Touch Feature and Free Spins
To make some of your wishes come true you are granted a wild symbol which can substitute for anything other than the Bonus Scatter symbol. Additionally, the wild symbol will also reward you with cash prizes by landing them on a payline with 3, 4 or 5 symbols rewarding you with 12.5x, 3.75x or 1.25x your total bet. If you are lucky enough to find three magic-lamp scatter symbols on any reel except the 5th then you will unlock the Genies Touch Feature. When the lamps are activated, an adjacent symbol is selected based on the one that creates the best winning combination and is used to replace all the other selected symbols and this includes the Magic Lamp symbols. The Bonus Scatter Feature will unlock 10 free spins when appearing on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels. During the free spins, the chance of the Genie's Touch Feature being triggered is increase because additional Magic Lamp symbols are randomly added to reels 1 through to 4. There is no re-triggering of the free spins feature while it is running.
Make your wishes come true!
The theoretical return to player (RTP) is 96.90% on total bets that can vary from as little as €0.20 to as much as €100 played with 20 coins. The paytable displays the cash prizes so there is no need to calculate your winnings and there are payline prizes to be had of up to a maximum 12.5x your total bet followed by 10x and there are several more lower payouts from there. While the payouts are not very high, you have the chance of combining multiple wins arising from the 20 paylines available along with the features to make the game worthwhile. The game has an exceptional theme, supported with great graphics and Middle Eastern music to make for a nice experience. What's more is this Genie grants you the ability to play for free so that you can decide whether you are ready to play for actual money.
