Who hasn’t wished upon a jackpot? Any iGamer worth his or her salt, that’s who. Blueprint Gaming, the wacky slots developer that brought us such iconic online slots as Top Cat and Wild Antics, have dug deep into the world of fairy tales to bring us Wish Upon A Jackpot Slot. This five reel, 20 pay-line slot reads like a who’s who of fairy tales, and with EIGHT bonus features maybe Blueprint can help us write our own?
But where could this fairytale adventure possibly take place? Why, in an enchanted forest, of course! The reels spin to the tune of an excitable ditty, the kind that hints of adventures in waiting. And adventures there may be. Wish Upon A Jackpot’s high-paying symbols are iconic items from classic fairy tales – a Glass Slipper, an Enchanted Castle, a Golden Harp. The Game Logo is our top paying symbol, super-stacked on all five reels, while the Frog Prince Wild does as he does in the story and makes our dreams come true. This time by substituting for other symbols in win combos. 10s through Aces make up the numbers as our low-payers, though we won’t be keeping our eyes peeled for those too much.
We know from Blueprint’s other top online slots that they are a developer with a penchant for scores of bonus features. Wish Upon A Jackpot makes the most of its plentiful source material by offering us eight bonus features, each of which draws upon a different fairy tale.
The Fairy Godmother Spin appears randomly on any spin. Our watchful wonder woman then proffers three glowing orbs. We choose one orb to reveal a bonus feature, which could be Pinocchio Wilds, Wild Reels, Puss In Wilds, Fairy Tale Bonus or the Fairy Win Spin. Blueprint uses all of its creative nouse to bring each fairytale to life. For example, the Pinocchio Wilds sees Pinocchio marionette down across the wilds and gleefully paint an allotted number of Wilds across the reels. Big nose, potentially big wins.
The Fairy Tale bonus, to which we might have random access through the Fairy Godmother Spin, is actually our main bonus feature. Normally triggered by landing three Fairytale Book Scatters, the Fairy Tale Bonus feature awards one of four distinct bonus games. We choose a book symbol to reveal either the 3 Little Pigs Free Spins Bonus, the Rapunzel Free Spins, the Jack And The Beanstalk feature or the Rumpelstiltskin’s Deal Maker Bonus. Each of these features has its nuances and its charm, and each one delivers plenty in our search of our own fairytale ending.
The sheer number of bonus features keeps our interest well and truly piqued in Wish Upon A Jackpot Slot, including during the base game when the sought after Fairy Godmother can appear to bandy her magic wand about at any given time. Blueprint has made the most of its subject matter, drawing inspiration from some of the most quirky stories of all time to deliver an off-the-wall online slots experience.
