The Wish Upon a Jackpot slot has a common setup. There are five reels, three rows, and 20 fixed paylines. You have a lot of room to stretch when you’re placing wagers. The minimum bet is €0.20, which places a €0.01 bet per line. The maximum wager is €500, for a €25 bet per line. Keeping track of your line bets is important here since this determines the size of your payouts.
If you want to skip the math, you can click on the paytable icon in the bottom left-hand corner. The paytable will calculate the line bet for you. You can also set up Autopay in this game. Customization options include a loss limit, a win limit, and the number of spins you’d like to pre-program.
There are quite a few symbols, bonuses, and payouts to keep track of in this game, so you’ll need to keep your wits about you. Let’s start with the normal symbols. This includes the Wish Upon a Jackpot logo (which can be super-stacked), a harp, a glass slipper, a castle, and 10, J, Q, K, and A. These symbols are all cleverly designed and support the overall theme very nicely. They also pay well, too. There are two special symbols in this game. The first is the wild, which is represented by a frog prince. He offers the highest payout in the base game. If you spin five wilds on an active payline at the maximum stake, you’ll win a tidy sum of €12,500 (500x your bet per line).
There is also a bonus symbol, represented by a wanted poster. Landing three bonuses will unlock one of four Fairytale Bonus options. The 3 Little Pigs bonus will turn wilds into sticky wilds and award you a random number of free spins. The Rapunzel bonus introduces multipliers up to 5x and has unlimited free spins. The Rumpelstiltskin Deal Maker bonus provides a gamble option. Finally, and most importantly, there is the Jack and the Beanstalk bonus. As you climb the beanstalk, you’ll either claim a prize and advance or stumble on a collect and the feature. If you find a Golden Goose along the way, you’ll win 1,000x your total bet. At a maximum stake of €500, you’ll bag the biggest prize possible of €500,000.
If you hadn’t noticed, this game is filled to the gills with bonus features – and we’re not nearly done yet. There are quite a few ways to win Wish Upon a Jackpot free spins and additional prizes, which bring us to our favorite feature: The Fairy Godmother Spin. This feature is completely random and can be triggered at any time. The fairy godmother will fly onto the screen and present you with five magic orbs. You’ll be asked to select one and receive a prize.
The first prize is called Pinocchio wild, where the real boy himself converts one symbol into a wild. The second prize is Wild Reels, where the gingerbread man makes an appearance to turn an entire reel wild. Puss in Wilds features your favorite cute-eyed cat as he turns all adjacent symbols wild. The Wanted Bonus will automatically trigger one of the four other bonuses mentioned in the previous section (3 Little Pigs, Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin, or Beanstalk). And last, there is a Fairy Win Spin, which guarantees your next spin will give you a huge payout.
With so many features in play, the Wish Upon a Jackpot RTP varies between 92.46% and 95.26%. Most video slots have a 95% RTP, so this game is right in line with what you’ll see elsewhere. This game has a medium, which guarantees regular small wins and occasional large prizes.
