In 2014, NetEnt treated its fans to a magic-filled experience after launching The Wish Master. It’s a high-volatility Online Casino slot famous for its fantastic artwork and interactive features. Well, NetEnt has now added Big Time Gaming’s Megaways engine to this slot, making it more interactive and rewarding to play.
Like the original version, The Wish Master Megaways infuses nostalgia with the industry-changing mechanic that brings players thousands of winning ways. The familiar genie character makes a grand comeback, casting his magic on the reels again. This time, he can reward gamers with up to 27,000x the stake.
The Wish Masters Maintains the tradition of most Megaways slots, where players enjoy the action on 6 reels with 2 rows that can expand to 7, increasing the winning ways to 117,649. It’s generally a friendly game, thanks to the 96.07% RTP (return to player) and 0.1 to 4.00 bet limit.
The magical action begins when gamers match 3+ symbols on adjacent reels. As expected, the J-A card royals are the low-value icons, rewarding gamers with 0.25x to 5x the stake. The creepy animals represent high-value symbols, which can award you up to 37.5x the stake. Be on the lookout for the wild icon, which can land anywhere and replace all symbols except the scatters.
NetEnt adds a few twists and turns to this magic-themed slot with the cascading reels feature. Whenever gamers conjure up a winning combination, the victorious icons vanish from the reels, with new symbols falling down to replace them. Of course, this further increases your payout chances, as the feature only stops if you don’t have a winning combo.
Meanwhile, the Wish Master can appear on the reels when the genie lamp symbols land, adding random special features and starting 5 Wish Master Feature Spins.
During every spin, the Extra Wild can land and convert one of the two high-value symbols into a wild. As this happens, the Wild Reel can fill up a reel with wilds which remain locked for the entire Wish Master Feature Spins. Also, the Multiplier function can reward gamers with 2x or 3x multipliers, reaching 6x when both are engaged. And yes, players are guaranteed up to five wilds with the Random Wild feature.
Commenting on The Wish Master, Nicholas Peters, Evolution’s Chief Business Development Officer Europe, stated: “The team’s hard work resulted in the revival of a great NetEnt classic, enhanced with Big Time Gaming’s ground-breaking Megaways mechanics. The familiar genie entertains players with a handful of special features, accompanied by up to 117,649 ways to win. Players can, once again, enter the lair of the Wish Master and see what he has in store.”
