Spin that reel – WishMaster slot review

The WishMaster is an online slot from Netent and comes with 5 reels and 20 fixed paylines. The betting range is between € 0.20 and € 100 per spin. The theme of the game is from the Tales of Arabia and comes with an Arabian lamp and some Arabian-style music.

Now a few things are a bit different in the WishMaster compared to most other games. The speed of this online slot is very fast. Normally a video of 100 spins takes around 8 to 12 minutes depending on how long the free games / bonuses last. The WishMaster only needs around 5 to 6 minutes to get through 100 spins. The other things is that the WishMaster does not give away free spins. That’s right, when you win the bonus you still pay for your spins. But on the other hand this bonus can be pretty profitable.

There are only eight basic symbols, J, Q, K and A and an additional four stylised animal masks, each containing a matching coloured gem. The scatter symbol is a scroll with the magical lamp on it and the wild is a flaming ‘Wild’ symbol on a black background.

Bonus Features

As we mentioned before, the Wishmaster does not give away free spins, but the bonus features are quite nice and you only need one scatter symbol to trigger a bonus feature where you usually need 3. You will have ten ‘free’ spins to take advantage of one of the following features:

  • Extra Wilds – the purple or brown mask symbol will turn wild
  • Wild Reel – one whole reel will turn wild while the spins last and it will appear on the same reel as the scatter symbol which triggered the feature
  • Expanding Wilds – any wild landing will expand to fill the entire reel
  • Multipliers – all wins will be multiplied by either 2x or 3x. Both of them active will give you a 6x multiplier
  • Random Wilds – 2 floating wilds will appear on the reels on each spin

Landing another scatter symbol in the bonus mode will add another five spins to the total and also add one additional feature. You can have a maximum of three features active at any one point and you can see which ones are active above the reels. For example a combination of random wilds with expanding wilds can be pretty spectacular.

Our Verdict

First of all we want to compliment this game on its design and animations. It has a very cartoony touch to it that works great with the animations. The Wish Master himself looks awesome and really gives an extra touch to the game. This game has a very easy gameplay and is interesting for both starting and more advanced players although we do feel there are better games out there. The bonus rounds are the ones that you want to see, especially when you have 2 or 3 the spins can bring you some pretty big wins.
