Ways of the Genie Slot Game Overview

This slot features between 64 and 117,649 ways to win during the Free Spins feature. Due to the reels increasing to seven rows high during the feature. 

Tap on the coin stack, then use the + and - minus to set your preferred stake. After doing this, you can proceed to press the spin button for a new game round. You can play this slot for stakes ranging from £0.20 up to £5 at Wizard Slots. 

The game consists of the base game and the Free Spins bonus round. Both parts feature a good variety of features and symbols. In the base game, you win by landing three to six matching symbols on an active payline. Read on to see the paying symbols you could land and what each one is worth.


The symbols in this slot include letters - A, K, J and Q, Flying carpets, Golden Rings, Riches Baskets, and the Genie. The Letters are worth the same - between 0.2x and 8x your bet if you land them on an active payline. The only difference is A and K can earn you 1.5x your stake, while J and Q will payout 1x your stake for a four-of-a-kind combination; all other values are the same.

You could win up to 20x your bet if you land six Riches Baskets in an active payline. Landing six Flying Carpets can earn you 25x your bet, but if they are golden rings, you get up to 40x your bet. As you might have already guessed, the Genie is the highest-paying symbol in this slot, worth up to 100x your stake for a six-of-a-kind combination. 

In addition to the above symbols, you may also find wilds or scatters. Wilds can step in to possibly help complete a winning combination by substituting for pay symbols except scatters. 

On the other hand, the scatter symbols - lamps - are responsible for triggering the Free Spins bonus feature. If you land two of them in a spin, it can earn you a random prize from one of the bonus features. It could be a mystery spin, a guaranteed win spin, Thundershots, or even a Free Spins round. 

Mystery Spin

On any random spin, the mystery spin feature may trigger. This causes mystery symbols to land on the reels. All the mystery symbols that land will then transform into the same matching symbol. And that could result in a winning combination. 

However, mystery symbols cannot transform into scatters or wilds.


This feature offers a spinning wheel from which you can win cash prizes, Free Spins, or additional Thundershots spins. 

You can also get the Thundershots at the curtain raise during the Free Spins feature.

Free Spins Feature

Besides winning it as a prize, you can unlock the Free Spins game by landing 3 to 6 lamps in a single spin. Once this happens, the reels increase to seven symbols high, with the winning ways rising to 64 before the curtain is raised. 

Moreover, you get many Free Spins depending on how many lamps were involved in unlocking the feature.

  • Three lamps can earn you 8 spins;
  • Four lamps can earn you 12 spins;
  • Five lamps can earn you 16 spins;
  • Six lamps can earn you 20 spins.

During the Free Spins round, one end of a curtain will rise after each win to reveal new symbols. The curtain will continue to lift little by little as you land wins, increasing the number of win ways with it. 

If you land a win on the reels with the corresponding end of the curtain, it will raise the whole curtain. That will earn you prize pots which can come with multipliers, cash wins, thundershots spins, or extra Free Spins.

If all positions are revealed, there will be 117,649 ways to win.

Return To Player (RTP): 95.48%

The RTP is a theoretical value and is shown as a percentage. It’s used to describe the percentage of money wagered a particular casino game may pay back to players over a certain period of time.

For example, if a game had a RTP of 92%, in theory, this would mean that for every £100 wagered, the game could return £92 back to players in potential winnings. However, it is important to note that winnings are completely random, and players are not guaranteed to receive this.
