How does Wish upon a Jackpot Megaways work?
When we look at how the game works, we quickly see that it contains many typical ‘megaways’ features. So there are 6 reels, on which an alternating number of rows appears. Since the maximum is 7 rows per reel, there is a maximum of 117,649 megaways per spin. You will also see that winning combinations disappear and new symbols fall down. This gives you the chance that you make a number of combinations in 1 turn! Ultimately, the goal is to make the most valuable combinations or reach the bonus round. There are also 3 ‘mystery features’ that can appear in both the basic game and the bonus game, but you can read more about that below!
How do you play Wish upon a Jackpot Megaways?
The betting range with a minimum of 0.10 and a maximum of 10 euros is also very familiar to us from other megaways games. The first step you should take is to choose a bet. Then decide whether you want to use the autoplay function, with which you can play a certain number of spins in succession. Then the game can start and you can hope for great prizes and features!
The Symbols / The Prices
Below is a list with a number of different categories of symbols, where the necessary information is given:
- There are 6 basic symbols consisting of the usual card symbols 9 through A. This is also a typical feature of many megaways games, and these symbols pay the least when you form combinations with them. With a ‘6 of a kind’ you get between 0.5x and 1x your bet back.
- Then we move on to the premium symbols, of which there are 4 different ones. 3 of these pay back between 2x and 5x your bet with a ‘6 of a kind’! The symbol with ‘Wish upon a jackpot‘ pays back 25x your stake in such a situation, making it by far the most valuable.
- There are also wild symbols, but they actually only occur with the mystery features described below.
- Finally, there is also a symbol with which you can unlock the bonus round, the scatter symbol.
3 mini features
Sometimes the fairy will appear out of nowhere and conjure 3 spheres on the screen. You then have the option to choose 1, which will unlock one of the following features:
- Magic Beanstalk Stacked Wilds: A man appears on the screen, moving back and forth, dropping beans every now and then. Some of these beans sprout in a stacked wild with an extra multiplier up to x7.
- Pigs Can Fly: The hyperactive pigs make their appearance and provide extra wilds on the reels.
- Golden Arrow Mystery Spin: Get up to 100 mystery symbols on the reels, which can contain all symbols except wilds or scatters.
When you manage to spin at least 3 scatter symbols, you unlock the bonus round. This gives you a total of 10 free spins in the so-called ‘Free Spin Bonus’. First you choose one of the magic spheres (mystery features) again, and then you know what you can win. In addition, there are a number of attractive things in this bonus round, which are listed below:
- Every scatter gives you +1 free spin.
- Every winning combination is good for +1 multiplier.
Max win & Rating
We also know the maximum profit: 50,000x your stake or 250,000 euros. Furthermore, the game scores 3/5 stars.
It is a fun game and a great design to gain experience with megaways slots. However, the average score is due to the RTP and variance, both of which are somewhat lower than hoped.
