Start your 2020 off with a bang and play Wheel of Wishes, a new online slot game that drops exclusively at Gaming Club desktop and mobile casino. The official launch is over a month later, on the 11th of February, but you should know by now that we like to be ahead of the pack! As well as a progressive jackpot, this exciting new slot game has plenty of other features and payouts to impress you. Learn more about them here, and see exactly why we’re so excited about its release!
Microgaming Does it Again
A new online slot game from Microgaming is always a good reason to celebrate. The company isn’t known as the world leader in slot themes, special features and functionality for nothing, after all. Their reputation goes back more than 20 years, and it’s well deserved.
Over the past few years, Microgaming has been collaborating with smaller developers for several of its releases. By teaming up with these innovative, independent brands, they have access to new ideas and can provide advice and a massive distribution base.
The mentoring relationship benefits both companies but more importantly, it’s good for players who get to enjoy truly superb, imaginative games. The Wheel of Wishes new online slot game was a joint effort between Microgaming and Alchemy Gaming, and it looks seriously impressive.
Wheel of Wishes whisks you away to a world of Arabian fantasy and adventure as soon as you start playing. The graphics all suggest opulence and wealth, at the level that a genie popping out of a lamp might be able to grant those who wished for it.
The betting range is from 0.1 to 25 per spin, so no matter how much like a pauper or a prince you are feeling, you’ll be able to afford a few spins on the 5 reels and 3 rows as you try to land winning combinations on the 10 paylines. The Wild Symbol can replace any regular reel icon, taking your winning potential higher.
Wheel of Wishes Scatter Symbol
The real star of the show, or jewel in the crown, of this new online slot game is the Scatter Symbol. Represented by the Wheel itself, when just 2 land in any position on the reels the Power Spins feature will be activated.
During Power Spins, all the icons on Reels 1 and 5 will turn into the same, randomly chosen high-value symbol. The 3 central reels will combine and form a giant, 3×3 Mega Symbol. If the Mega Symbol is made up of Scatter Wheels, a massive wheel forms in the centre of the screen and the progressive jackpot round is activated.
If any other Mega Symbol besides the Wheel forms on the middle 3 reels, lower, but still generous wins will ensue. Matching the Mega Symbol with the icons filling Reels 1 and 5 is pretty jaw dropping in its own right.
Power Mode’s Power Side Bets
For an added element of excitement, Microgaming and Alchemy Gaming have added an optional side bet to the mix in this new online slot game. If you place the Power Mode wager, you’ll pay more for every single spin to involve Mega Symbols and to thus have the potential to start the progressive jackpot round.
The game has been specially designed to trigger the progressive at a frequent rate anyway, but if you want to get your adrenaline pumping even faster, in a shorter amount of time, placing the Power Mode side bet is a sure-fire way to do just that.
Massive Progressive Jackpot Potential
The progressive jackpot known as the WOWpot in Wheel of Wishes has a minimum amount of 2 million, which you probably don’t need us to tell you is double the minimum in the world record-holder for progressive payouts, Mega Moolah!
Both Wheel of Wishes and Mega Moolah have 3 jackpots in addition to the main progressive prize, called the Mini, Minor and Major jackpots. During the progressive bonus round, you’ll spin the eponymous Wheel and be granted your wishes as you win 1 of the 4 jackpots.
As well as the WOWpot being twice as large as the Mega progressive in Mega Moolah, the Wheel of Wishes Major jackpot’s seed is 50,000, which 5x bigger than the Major jackpot in the older slot game.
The Minor and Mini seed payouts in Wheel of Wishes are 100 and 10 respectively, while the hit rate and theoretical Return to Player percentage are still to be confirmed.
Considering everything we know about the new online slot game so far, we expect it to be nothing less than impressive! Make sure you enjoy this incredible release at Gaming Club Casino. Register your account and try your luck.
