Will this Wheel of Wishes slot grant all your wishes and give you the hidden power within? Absolutely, as long as you can bet at least $€£2 a spin.
It’s hard for us to like a casino game that has a high minimum bet because that means lots of people won’t be able to afford to play. We get that 2.00 a spin isn’t the end of the earth for a lot of online gamblers out there, but for many, it’s well out of range.
Here’s the kicker though, the minimum bet for the Wheel of Wishes slot is actually 0.20 a spin. So if you wanted to you could play a fairly average middle eastern fantasy game, with 10 paylines and fairly generic symbol.
You’ve got a lamp, some treasure, a medallion, a book, and some shapes (diamond, circle, heart, clubs, spades) as the low paying symbols. It’s as generic as the Wild Bazaar slot by NetEnt. Not bad, not great, ok.
It’s bright, it’s happy, it’s not without plenty of fun, especially as you get 4 progressive jackpots, wilds, and two scatters will trigger a bonus game. Why would you need to bet more?
Two scatters trigger a power spin. This means that for the next spin, reels 2, 3 and 4 will only spin mega symbols. These are symbols that can land and cover the whole reel or cover a 3×3 space. The chances of you getting bigger wins are increased hugely, and it’s also how you get the jackpots.
Because when you land a mega scatter symbol fully on reels 2, 3 and 4, you’ll get a chance at catching one of those jackpots. And it’s not a little one. The ‘wowpot’ starts at a huge 2 million in cash and the major jackpot at 50 thousand. They are no small sums and given a little popularity, it may even start competing with the likes of the Hall of Gods slots.
And this feature hits every 50 or so spins, frequently enough that you may even not realise that this has no other feature – no free spins, no click me bonus, not gamble. Just those power spins and mega symbols.
But here’s the brilliant kicker in this Wheel of Wishes slot game. You can click the power mode button, and EVERY SPIN will give you mega symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4.
It’s night time, the atmosphere here is a little colder, and the wins don’t come as often. But when they do it’s amazing to watch. Because you get at least multiple 4 of a kind wins, if not 5 of a kind wins.
You also increase the chance of hitting that mega scatter and the Wheel of Wishes slot jackpots. Which, let’s be honest, is 50% of the reason you’ll be playing this Alchemy Gaming video slot.
But you will need to bet 10x your initial bet to get into this power mode – hence the minimum bet of 2 a spin. If that’s too high, and you don’t think you’ll be able to stop yourself from pressing that button, maybe try out the Bazaar Rat slot game.

The higher your pet, the more likely you are of triggering the wheel of wishes jackpot bonus.
The Wheel of Wishes slot game is a strange beast - we would rarely recommend a real money slot where you need to bet 10x your starting bet to have fun. Which is why we gave this only 3 stars instead of the 4 we had in our hearts.
Because if you view this as an excellent 10 payline slot with mega symbols on every single spin and only high paying symbols with a minimum bet of 2 a spin... it's brilliant.
You don't need to turn on the power mode in order to enjoy this jackpot slot, as two scatters will show up often enough for you to get a taste of this feature. But if you can get high paying spins on every spin, wouldn't you press that button?
Be careful with that budget, but overall, this is a brilliant start by Alchemy Gaming and a great addition to the Microgaming slots portfolio.
