The Fairy Godmother is back on the slot from Blueprint Gaming. Wish Upon a Jackpot Megaways is taking you to a fantasy wonderland where different fairy tales converge on a set of dynamic reels with up to 117,649 ways to win. The remake of the 2013 original comes with three Fairy Godmother modifiers, mystery orbs and a free spins round with unlimited multipliers that can lead to wins of up to 50,000 times your bet or 250,000 credits, whichever is reached first.
Wish Upon a Jackpot Megaways is a cascading video slot with six reels, up to seven rows and up to 117,649 ways to win. Pays are awarded for two to six matching symbols on adjacent reels from left to right only. Delve into the fairytale wonderland on desktop or mobile devices from 0.20 to 10 credits per spin. The game has medium volatility with a default RTP of 96.20%.
Courtesy of the licensed Megaways engine, no two spins are the same as the number of ways to win is randomly determined at the start of a new spin. The game will select between two and seven pay symbols for each reel, creating anything from 64 to 117,649 win ways. Any win will set off a chain reaction, which will see the winning symbols explode and new one cascading into to place and potentially creating more winning combos. The process continues as long as a new win occurs after a cascade. All wins are accumulated and paid once a spin sequence concludes.
Blueprint kept the enchanted fantasy wonderland in the background as well as the mixture of fairytales that are included in the gameplay and symbols such as Jack and the Beanstalk and Cinderella. The fairy godmother is also making again an appearance, granting wishes that will modify the reels and help you score wins. An enchanted soundtrack rounds off the slot design.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card royals from 9 through to A in an enchanted writing style, awarding 0.5x to 1x your bet for a single six of a kind. They are followed by harps/lyres, glass slippers, castles and the slot logo. Hit six across the reels to win 2x to 25x your stake.
The game has two wilds, a standard 1×1 wild as well as a stacked beanstalk wild with the latter appearing in one of the features only. Both perform the usual substitutions duties. A fairytale book acts as the scatter while Prince Charming is the mystery symbol.
The original Wish Upon A Jackpot slot was released in 2013 and was an integral part of Blueprint Gaming’s series of 20-liners that came with a flurry of five random and four bonus features. Many more followed after that, TED, Beavis & Butthead, Dork The Dragon Slayer to name a few, securing the developer a reputation for feature-rich games. They kept the DNA of the original on the Megaways version but reduced the number of features to streamline the gameplay and increase the pace, not to forget, the win potential that is now capped at 50,000x bet or 250,000 credits.
Core to the gameplay are still the Fairy Godmother Bonus Spins, which are a variety of modifiers that will have a significant role in the base game and free spins. The Fairy Godmother can appear randomly on any spin in the main game and conjure three magic orbs onto the screen. You can pick one to reveal the modifier that will be applied to the current spin.
Hitting three or more Magic Book scatters anywhere on the reels within one spin sequence will trigger 10 Fairy Godmother Free Spins, which cannot be retriggered as such but any scatter landing on a free spin will add +1 free spin, no limits. The Fairy Godmother will appear before the round starts to offer you again a choice of three magic orbs. Pick one which of the three above mentioned modifiers will trigger with a significantly increased frequency during the bonus round. And there is one more kicker. In true Megaways style, the feature will start off with an x1 win multiplier which will increase by x1 after every winning reaction, again, no limits.
Wish Upon a Jackpot Megaways is a solid remake of the 2013 original, combining the modern usual Megaways engine with a variety of fairy tales characters. Blueprint reduced the number of features which streamlines the gameplay and provides a more fast-paced reel action. They went the opposite way with the volatility and win potential, cranking it up from 1,000x to a huge 50,000x your bet. So wish upon a star and the dreams of a super mega win just might become true.
