The wombat says: Well hello! We spy with our Wombat eye a nice looking slot game. Yes, we’re talking about Wish Upon a Jackpot from Blueprint Gaming that is a twist on the usual fairy tale fare, making it a romping combo of several of the classic kids’ stories all rolled into one. It’s a bit like a who’s who of the magic land!
It combines all your favourite old time characters including that clever feline, the Puss in Boots, the the long nosed puppet Pinocchio and everyone’s all-time favourite; the Fairy Godmother- more of her later (although she’s more like Father Christmas with all the gifts she has on offer. She looks like a big fat bee from the Beehive Bedlam Reactors slot mind).
Aside from the awesome theme, this is also a game that really knows how to create a stack of bonus features that will grab your attention and keep you curious. So, dust off your glass slippers and head into the magic woods with us Wombat fans! It’s very exciting indeed…
Look and Feel
This game looks awesome with high-quality 3D graphics and loads of colour and detail to drink in. It’s a massive step up from older games like Tootin’ Car Man and Irish Eyes (although we do love these classic games, especially the Emerald Isle one).
In fact Wish Upon a Jackpot slot looks more like an animated film than a slot game. You’ll find the play is set in an enchanted woodland glade; and here you can see all the evidence of the fairy tale mash-up: Keep your eyes open for Snow White’s red apple or Cinderella’s pumpkin! The fairytale reels are framed in a story-book style frame, and the soundtrack is great fun, adding another level to the game’s exquisite detail with plenty of dramatic and funny effects to keep the onscreen drama up. This is a game where the world of small details add up to create an immersive world. Well done Blueprint Gaming!
Wish Upon a Jackpot is a 3 row, 5 reel, 20 payline slot- in that sense it is pretty traditional compared to some other games we have like Fruit Blast and Well of Wonders. Your high value icons on the reels are straight outta’ Fairytaleland and are mad up of the game’s sunset logo, a golden harp, Cinderella’s glass slipper on a cushion, and a fairy-tale castle. The lower value icons are the A, K, Q, J and 10 of the standard playing card deck. The game’s Wild is a happy-looking frog on a lillypad wearing; you guessed it, a golden crown, meanwhile The Scatter icon is a thick volume of stories, of course!
Fairy Tale Bonus
Now here’s where things get REALY magical Wombat Fans. If you can manage to land 3x or more of the Scatter symbols on reels 1,3 and 5 you will trigger the Bonus feature, and now have the extra treat of selecting one of your icons (with a golden sparkling wand) to uncover exactly which fairy-tale feature you will trigger.
Next, the pages of the book will turn to open it on the page of your very own fairy tale feature. The possibilities are:
Jack and the Beanstalk This plucky chap will take you to a screen where you must pick your magic beans to try to get a beanstalk to grow. The higher the beanstalk, the more chance you have of reaching the rich pickings of cash prizes that can be found by getting to the famed golden goose above the clouds.
The Rumpelstiltskin Deal Maker We’re a big fan of this fairy tale fella. Pick this feature and here the cheeky chap will make you an offer of a multiplier. You can take it or leave it up to 5 times ( and wait to see if you can’t get a better offer) but then you have to accept what he’s got in store for you. We like the extra element of risk in this one.
Three Little Pigs Free Spins It’s free spins ahoy in this feature Wombat Fans. Once your spins have started, the pigs land on the reels making a little of their own sparkly magic creating Sticky Wilds that will hang about to increase your chances of winning. There’s even a pig wizard who can appear at the end of the spins to re-trigger this bonus round -now that really is a dream come true.
There is also a cloud on the horizon (this is a fairy tale after all) from behind which that bad ole’ wolf will pop up when you least expect it and blow those friendly pigs away!
Rapunzel Free Spins That long-haired lovely shows up in this bonus. Here you see Rapunzel in her tower with her suitor Prince Charming trying to climb her hair during the spins. Sadly he can only go up her ladder of golden locks hair that grows multipliers on offer when the Prince Charming icon shows up on reel 5.
The Fairy Godmother of Wilds! As is the way of magical helpers, the Fairy Godmother will show up randomly during the base game and will bring you gifts in the shape of 3 sparkling orbs. She then gifts you one of the following:
– Pinocchio Wilds – this will add extra Wilds to the reels and so makes extra magical moolah for all us slot spinners.
– Puss in Wilds – this little treat turns neighbouring icons into Wilds.
– Wild Reels – At the wave of a magic wand, this will a whole reel turn Wild so upping those chances of making winning payline combos.
But that’s not all slot fans! She can also grant you 1 of the other 4 larger fairy tale features, or even make a special award of the Fairy Wins Spins which guarantees an instant cash prize that really is actual magic! It’s a dream come true for this Wombat, it really is!
The magic little game looks so awesome, and is filled with fairytale touches that immerse you in the world. Put it this way: it literally has a million cool tiny details! And as for the bonuses – there are so many extras features in Wish Upon a Jackpot slot that this Wombat’s head was spinning right off with all the good times. Fans of epic games with a bewildering display of play options will love this new release and we will 100 % be back for more!
