You'll see certain themes come up over and over again in the online casino world, especially with slots, and the theme of Aladdin and the genie in the lamp is one of those that comes up occasionally. Because it's been used as the theme for so many games, it has to be done particularly well to stand out among all of the others, and that's the task that Quickspin was facing when they created Genie's Touch. While it has excellent graphics and a decent pay table, it falls flat a bit in the feature department, as you'll see below.
The general layout of this game is pretty typical with five reels, three rows and 20 paylines. You can choose bet sizes as low as $0.20 per spin to $100 per spin, so there's a pretty wide range of players that this game can appeal to as far as stakes go. You'll choose your total bet size instead of coin sizes, however, and the 20 paylines are static and can't be changed (not that it matters all that much). As far as online slots (see more) go, the betting range and format are pretty typical.
Top Game Payouts
Quickspin (more here) has set up this game so that payouts are scaled according to the total size of your bet instead of being based on payline wagers. Along these lines, we're going to talk about the payouts in this game based on having a $1 bet size, and they will be larger or smaller depending on the size of the bet that you choose for your own play.
Up first is the golden wild symbol. It will give you a nice $12.50 win for five of a kind, and it shows up on all of the reels. Four earns $3.75, which isn't bad at all, and you'll even get $1.25 for three of a kind in wilds if you don't make a larger payout for four of a kind.
Aladdin shows up in the purple, and he has the same set of payouts as the wilds, so it's basically like the wilds don't have their own separate payouts. He'll give you $12.50 for five, $3.75 for four and $1.25 for three of a kind. The lady in red with the dark hair is the princess of the story, and she gets you $10 for five of a kind. However, you can also score $2.50 for four or $1 for three with this lady.
The villain is in green, and he'll give you $7.50 when you get five of a kind. The $2 win for four isn't bad, and you can also earn $1 for three of a kind. The top payouts wrap up with the $6 payout for five of the man in blue, and this becomes $1.50 for four of a kind and $0.75 for three.
Gem Payout Structure
There are six gems in this game, and they are of all different colors: red, yellow, purple, green, blue and clear. This is a cool way of setting up low-paying symbols instead of doing the lame A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 symbols that have, quite frankly, been used too often. There are two tiers of wins for the gems.
In the upper tier, you can earn $4 for five of a kind. This goes for the red and yellow gems only. For the purple, green, blue and clear gems, you'll get $3 for five of a kind. The payouts for four of a kind or three of a kind are the same for all gems, and this is $1 for four and $0.50 for three.
Genie's Touch and Free Spins
Three or more of the scattered lamps activates the Genie's Touch symbol. When this symbol shows up, it causes sets of adjacent symbols to turn into the same thing, and this creates tons of opportunities for big, multi-line wins.
Three or more of the bonus symbol activates a set of 10 free spins. To give you extra value, a lot more magic lamp symbols are added to the reels to make the Genie's Touch feature trigger more often.
Genie's Touch has great graphics, but beyond that, it's a fairly generic game with a low volatility and a decent hit-rate. If you're a fan of games with graphics that look hand-drawn, then you'll probably like the visual appeal. However, if you're looking for exciting gameplay, then you'll probably want to try something else. Quickspin can definitely do better than this, but everyone software company has their duds from time to time.
