Microgaming has announced the launch of a brand new jackpot slot.

The leading game provider, which is known for games such as Thunderstruck II and Immortal Romance, announced the brand new video slot this week, revealing that it was developed by Alchemy Gaming exclusively for the firm. The firm also revealed that the new game is the latest slot to join Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network.

Wheel Of Wishes uses a 5×3 layout with 10 paylines and has an RTP of 93.34%. The slot is set against the sands of Arabia, according to Microgaming, and features gorgeous visuals, a fun soundtrack and exciting gameplay mechanics. Symbols in the slot include genie lamps, chests of treasure, vials, books, amulets and playing card symbols.

The game is also packed with dozens of special features. For example, the Wild symbol substitutes for all winning combinations, Stacks to help create more wins, and moves across the reels during game time. Landing two or more scatter symbols, meanwhile, triggers the game’s Power Spin which transforms the first and fifth reels into identical high-paying Stacked symbols.

When the Power Spin feature is triggered, a giant symbol will appear across the centre reels to help create dozens of winning combinations. When this happens, players will also be given a chance to win the Wheel Of Wishes Jackpot Bonus which guarantees one of four bonuses; the Mini, Minor, Major or WowPot which starts at €2 million.

If that isn’t enough, players can enable the Power Mode via a side bet which permanently enables the Power Spins feature to help make more winning combinations and provides players with a chance to win the jackpot. It also allows players to customise the game to their liking, particularly if they’re looking to make bigger wins.

What They Say

James Buchanan, the Director of Global Operators at Microgaming, said in a statement: “We are delighted to present Alchemy Gaming’s debut title, and the first in a new wave of games to join Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network this year. The addition of Wheel of Wishes with its revamped WowPot jackpot is sure to set new records, while the introduction of the Power Spins and Power Mode make for a fantastic gameplay experience.

“We are pleased to announce that the game’s first Major progressive jackpot win has already been hit during an early release period, with one player winning €131,574.55 and total payouts across all four jackpots exceeding €1.2 million.”

Rory Harpur, the Head of Alchemy Gaming, added: “Wheel Of Wishes combines superb graphics with intuitive game mechanics. The title’s Power Mode feature transforms the reels into a permanent Power Spin, creating an enhanced opportunity to enter the Jackpot Bonus Wheel and ultimately claim the WowPot jackpot. We are incredibly excited for the wider launch of our debut game with Microgaming and can’t wait for players to take a spin on Wheel Of Wishes.”

Microgaming’s Wheel Of Wishes launches on all Microgaming casino operators on Tuesday, February 11th. This includes sites such as PlayOJO, Casumo Casino, Party Casino, All British Casino, Genesis Casino, and more.
