June 29, 2021, will remain inscribed in the mind of one anonymous player. This was after the player’s wishes came true. After rubbing the genie’s lamp multiple times, the genie was in the mood to grant one wish. The Wheel of Wishes: WowPot was the slot involved and the player became the 61st to strike a Major win in WowPot's history. This lucky player was on the end of a €517K+ win, and a record-breaking win for that matter. That’s because it was the biggest win recorded on the slot to date. Wheel of Wishes: WowPot is a slot developed by Alchemy Gaming exclusively for Microgaming.
Inspired by the desert, yes, but make no mistake because it’s not as dry as you think it is. Wheel of Wishes is a slot by Alchemy Gaming for Microgaming and it’s one of the WowPot jackpot slots. The slot plays just like any other, with the minimum betting amount set at €0.10 while the highest bet is capped at €25.
You have your card suits playing the low-value symbols, with the highest payout set at 35x your line bet for five matches. However, the most lucrative regular symbol is the genie lamp that will pay 100x your line bet.
You want to watch out for the scatter symbol that will pay 500 times your total bet for five matches. Apart from paying handsomely, the scatter will activate the Power Spins feature after you land at least two scatter symbols on the reels. Reels one and five will transform into high-value symbols during this feature while the middle reels will turn into a 3x3 symbol for bigger payouts.
Then there’s the Jackpot feature activated after landing the Bonus Wheel symbol during the Power Spins. The wheel will spin and you could land on one of the four jackpots: Mini, Minor, Major, or the Major (WowPot).
Well, you may already know Microgaming perhaps from its progressive jackpot titles. Mega Moolah is the most popular progressive jackpot title to date and has been partly responsible for the developer’s €1 billion payouts since entering the progressive jackpot space.
What is the WowPot, you ask? Started over a decade ago, the WowPot is another jackpot network by Microgaming. However, when it started, the prizes were nothing like the millions up for grabs today. A few thousand euros was the most these slots offered.
But the company revamped the four-tiered progressive jackpot in 2019 but dropped for a while only to get back on track in 2020. Microgaming works with other developers to create the jackpot slots in a bid to offer new adventures. The jackpot prizes were also upped, with the WowPot starting at a massive €2 million, with the potential to grow to unlimited values.
