Golden Genie (Nolimit City) slot review
Golden Genie is a brand new slot provided by Nolimit City based on a popular story about a magic lamp. It's obviously not the first game to use the theme and, moreover, it's become a little bit jaded all over the years. However, the game features a lot of interesting bonuses as well as high payouts, so don't miss a chance to join Aladdin on his adventure and claim some decent rewards.
The reelset used for the game is a 5*3 layout with 20 fixed paylines. The reels are set in a backdrop of a starry sky, kind of simplistic approach, to be honest, yet it looks cool and matches the game's genre. The RTP of 96.03% is at an average industry level, however, the return is slightly boosted up to 96.36% as soon as you activate Genie Parade feature, but we'll talk about that a bit later. This is a medium volatility slot, thus it will appeal to less risky players who want to enjoy a relaxing session. In order to spin the reels a minimum wage of 0.2$ is required, with the bets possible as high as 100$ per spin.
The symbol collection is a set of 10 regular symbols, divided by half on low-paying and high-paying ones. On the lower side we have 10-A royals, decorated with small gems of various shapes and colors. The more valuable ones include gorgeous Jasmine, lovely Aladdin, a magic lamp, a tiger and a serpent. Genie is both Wild and Scatter at the same time, and also the most rewarding symbol among all. You can check the paytable for 5-symbol winning combinations below.
- Jasmine / Genie - 500x of the bet.
- Aladdin - 400x of the bet.
- Magic Lamp - 250x of the bet.
- Serpent - 180x of the bet.
- A, K royals - 125x of the bet.
- 10, J, Q royals - 100x of the bet.
Golden Genie features a couple of interesting bonuses. The first one to mention is Genie Wishes feature, which can be triggered in case Aladdin aligns to the left of the Magic Lamp. As soon as you Aladdin rubs his precious lamp, all the same symbols will turn Wild, while every winning combination formed with the newborn Wild symbols will get a random Multiplier of up to 10x.
The next feature, called Genie Lamps, may trigger at random during any spin in base game. The 2nd and the 4th reels will become Wild for the duration of the current spin. In addition to this, the feature activates both-way pays, which can double your rewards. However, this does not happen too often, to be honest, so don't expect to have free Wilds almost every spin.
The last but not least bonus is called Genie Parade. By landing 3 or more Genie symbols you will activate the feature and one of the Genies will become golden for the duration of bonus game. Every spin the multiplier of a golden Genie is increased by 1x, as well as other golden Genie's to appear on the reels. If a Genie leaves the reels, it's multiplier will then be transferred to a closest Genie. In case there are no more Genie symbols on the grid, the multiplier is saved until a new Genie appears.
Furthermore, the above mentioned Genie Wishes feature transforms all Aladdin and Magic Lamp symbols into Genies. Each new Genie landing on the reels will adopt the behaviour. The feature can be stopped in case all Genies disappear from the reels and no new special symbols land.
All said and done, Golden Genie by Nolimit City is a fun game based on a magic story about an orphan and his lamp. Despite Nolimit's simplistic approach to the visuals, offering nothing breathtaking about it, the game is definitely enjoyable to play. This one will surely appeal to all lovers of Near East themed slots, as well as players who seek Wilds, Multipliers and a couple of exciting features on top of it. Make your wishes come true with Golden Genie by notorious Nolimit City provider, as all you need to do is rub a lamp and press the spin button.
