Wheel of Wishes slot by Microgaming via Alchemy Gaming gives us a clue as to what the bonus feature is all about simply via the title. The game is basic and plain with a desert dune background, Middle Eastern music and plenty of crashes and bangs as the symbols land. I'm not a great fan of wheel slots with IGT making a fair few of them most of which are pretty dire, such as Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spin which is awful as far as the bonus goes, WOF Hollywood Edition that's just as bad with the Megajackpots WOF On Air being the one with most potential. So will our bankroll keep turning here or will we wish we'd never come near the game?
We have 10 fixed pay lines with some high pays here on Wheel of Wishes slot so it seems quite volatile. The 5-of-a-kind pays are Wheel Scatters 500x, Wilds which can appear stacked 50x, Genie Lamp 10x, Treasure Chest 7.5x, Book 5x, Potion Bottles 4.5x, Necklace 4x with five card values in the form of shapes paying 3 down to 2x for a full line. There are no random features and this slot is essentially all about the progressives.
If you land just 2 or more scatters you get a Power Spin. The centre 3 reels become solely Colossal 3x3 Symbols of just picture symbols and a giant Wheel Scatter. The end 2 reels all display the same symbols and hopefully you will land a matching Colossal Symbol for a full-screen big win. If you are really lucky you'll get the Jackpot Wheel in full view. If this happens you are guaranteed one of the 4 progressives. These are seeded at 2 million for the WOWPOT!, 50,000 Major, 100 Minor and 10.00 Mini.
Pay 10x your basic stake to play in permanent Power Spin mode as described above.
If ever there was a money eater then Wheel of Wishes slot is it. The RTP is a staggeringly poor 93.34% minus 5.3% progressive contribution so 88.04% in normal mode. In Power Mode the RTP is 92.24% minus a staggering 14.5% so 77.74% if you aren't winning jackpots. The game is plain to look at although the sounds are decent enough but the base game is appallingly poor for balance maintenance. I'll leave this review here as I cannot recommend this slot to anybody...
