Fairy tales make for some of the more interesting slot games around, and Blueprint Gaming have merged more than just one into this slot. Be prepared to meet Puss in Boots, Pinocchio, Rapunzel and of course the Fairy Godmother, as we all Wish Upon a Jackpot. But be warned, when you wander into the woods all is not as it seems! Actually, we are fibbing it’s not that bad and there are lots of features to enjoy so we can’t complain.
Wish Upon a Jackpot is a 5-reel, 20 fixed pay line slot, offering a wand waving RTP of 92.46% to 95.26%. With a relaxing animal sounds backing track, the reels spin transparently against a woodland backdrop. Symbols are a variety of fairy tale themed icons, combined with the usual card denominations. Higher value symbols are Wish Upon a Jackpot logo, a golden harp, Cinderella’s slipper and a castle. Lower values are the A, K, Q, J and 10 designed with a fairy tale twist to the lettering.
Bet Amounts – Betting begins at 20p per spin and can be adjusted up to just £10 per spin, putting Wish Upon a Jackpot in the lower stake group of games. You will see the bet amount in the large circle at the left of the reels. To change the bet, use the arrows above and below until you reach your desired amount.
Wild Symbol – The frog prince is your wild symbol on Wish Upon a Jackpot and he will substitute for all others except the scatter. He is also your highest paying symbol in the game, offering up to a huge x500 coin win for landing 5 in a winning combination.
Scatter Symbol – As you would expect from a fairy tale themed slot, the scatter symbol is a storybook. Land three or more of the storybook symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 to trigger the bonus round.
Fairy Godmother Feature – No fairy tale is complete without a fairy godmother floating around somewhere. So, in Wish Upon a Jackpot you may well see your fairy godmother floating onto the reels at any point in the game. She will magic up three purple orbs of which you will need to choose just one. Inside will be one of the fairy godmothers bonus features for you to activate. But not before your line win is awarded first. Any further wins will be re-evaluated once the chosen feature has played out.
- Puss in Wilds – Puss in Boots will land in various positions on the reels at random. He will then jump out of his space and attack the reels turning surrounding symbols into wilds too,
- Fairy Win Spins – awards a guaranteed big win added to the reels,
- Pinocchio Wilds – will turn random positions on the reels wild,
- Bonus Award – will instantly trigger the story book bonus feature,
- Wild Reels – will turn random reels from 1 to 5 wilds.
Book Bonus Feature – Get yourself three or more of the storybook symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 to trigger this feature on Wish Upon a Jackpot. You will now have to choose which of these book symbols you want, as it will have one of the four feature games inside it.
- Three Little Pigs Spins – allocates a random number of spins, during which pigs will land on the reels and turn a symbol wild. The wild will remain in place for the duration of the spins. However, the Big Bad Wolf can make your wilds disappear by huffing and puffing them away. At the end of the spins the pig wizard may appear and retrigger the round for you if you are lucky.
- Rumpelstiltskin Deal Maker – you will find yourself sat across from the sneaky one known as Rumpelstiltskin in this game. He will offer you a deal, simply choose from other story book bonus games or prizes with a multiplier included. You can choose to accept or ask for another deal. But be careful you can only pass 5 times; the last deal is the final one and it may not work in your favour.
- Rapunzel Bonus Spins – here you will have unlimited spins, and of course no fairy tale is complete without prince charming. He will appear only on reel 5, but he will then begin to climb the tower Rapunzel is trapped in. Each move up the tower the prince takes will increase the win multiplier. But once he reaches the top of the tower the round ends.
- Jack and the Beanstalk – It is time to choose your magic beans wisely unlike Jack. You will be placed at the beginning of the beanstalk and given 5 magic beans to pick from. Along the beanstalk are win multipliers, increasing with each step along. The magic beans will have moves inside them which once chosen you will then move along the beanstalk. When you reveal the word collect, wherever you are will be the multiplier added to your bet amount. However, reach the end of the beanstalk and you will climb up to the golden goose surrounded with her golden eggs. The multiplier amounts on the eggs will start to move at random before disappearing from view. You then get to choose one egg to reveal the final multiplier win for the round.
If you are a fairy tale lover or not, this game has something for everyone. Wish Upon a Jackpot is an exceptionally well thought out slot, filled with plots, plenty of wins and lots of features. That’s before we get started on the character animations bringing the fairy tales back to life for a brief moment in time. Blueprint Gaming have excelled themselves with this slot, making sure there is a lot going on and plenty of way to win too. Fairy Godmother floats on and off the reels quite frequently, bringing you plenty of mini features during the main game, which is fantastic. However, the storybook bonus is a little harder to get hold of, but with the bet amounts being as low as they are, we were able to sustain the wait.
