Design and Gameplay
One of Betsoft earliest titles, Genie's Fortune follows a similar structure and design like that of Gladiator, among other titles. It is a simple 5 x 3 reel, 30 payline video slot games with some outdated graphics and sound effects. But we forgive you Betsoft, you have proven your worth more times that we can count, not to mention that Genie’s Fortune has acquired a vintage status long ago. However, the title is sure to grant you all your wishes with its surprising abundance of bonus features.
Genie's Fortune theme takes inspiration from a preconceived notion that the genie is only found in the Middle Eastern states, as well as a certain Disney movie that will be left unsaid. Nevertheless, it brings a quirky charm which is emphasized in the cute animations. The music on the other hand serves its role perfectly, if the idea is to make you feel as though you were in an Arabian dream. The symbols also achieve this effect, with the classic Middle Eastern tropes, such as the belly dancer and the snake basket. All symbols have different values, so it’s a good idea to check out the Paytable for more information.
The dangerous adventure to reach the genie is worth it, is all we can say. If you land a magic carpet on the first reel the Magic Carpet Feature will activate. At which point the carpet will fly, from it position, to the right, squishing all icons on its way, turning them into extra credits.
Do get the Click Me Crazy bonus you have to land specifically on position two on the third reel. After this happens, the monkey comes out from its box, and icons underneath it, above it and on its side appear. The player choses an icon onto which the monkey hops on, and starts to shake it to reveal a credit prize. The feature is over once the Collect button appears.
The Genie’s Free Spin feature is triggered when three or more Treasure Chests icons appear on any of the reels. Receive three and win 5 free spins, or four and get 10 free spins. To get 20 free spins the gamer must land on 5 Treasure Chests.
To have the genie grant three of your wildest and deepest wishes, the magic lamp is necessary. It has to appear somewhere on an active payline three or more times. What follows is the bonus round. Pick three of six wishes and get rewarded with credit.
Genie’s Fortune might not grant all your wishes, but it covers all your video slot desires by offering a substantial amount of bonus features. Don’t be afraid to rub the lamp, and remember to choose wisely.
