Jackpot Slot Review: Wish Upon a Jackpot

Play to make your wishes come true in Wish Upon a Jackpot, an online slot brought to life by Blueprint Gaming. The game brings everyone’s favourite fairy tales together in a unique theme that makes it one of the best online slots on the market. Who said adults don’t get to have fun?

With a fantastical eight bonus rounds and a Fairy Godmother who has way more to offer than just fairy dust and transforming pumpkins, Wish Upon a Jackpot is action-packed and full of magic. Each fairy-tale character, from Puss in Boots to the three little pigs, represents a different bonus round or feature, transforming this 5-reel, 20-payline slot into a real nostalgic feast.

While the title is slightly misleading, as this isn’t actually a jackpot slot, the game’s bonus features and maximum-win potential of 50,000x your bet certainly make up for that. The medium to high volatility should produce some tantalising treats, while the RTP (return to player) appears at a fair 95.26%.


Graphics and theme

The action is set in an enchanted forest, where you can hope to see fairy-tale characters including the Gingerbread Man, Jack in the Beanstalk, Rumpelstiltskin, and many more. The reels look like the framework of a whimsical carriage (presumably Cinderella’s,) and are surrounded by a pumpkin, a shiny red apple, and lanterns.

Symbols on the reels include the classic low-paying cards A down to 10, and the higher-paying glass slipper, magical castle, and golden harp.

Players will enjoy a cheerful harp soundtrack while they spin the reels, as well as the animations that show up throughout the game, creating a lively atmosphere that will have you wondering who you might meet next! The visuals and graphics in Wish Upon a Jackpot have been incredibly well done, and really take the whimsical theme to the next level.


Gameplay

To get started, you’ll need to take a look at the paytable, which can be found by selecting the menu button on the bottom left corner of the gaming screen. Next, use the arrows to the left of the reels to select your bet amount, which ranges from 0.20 to 500 credits. Finally, decide whether you’ll be using the Autoplay function – this can be found at the bottom right corner of the screen. It allows you to choose between 10 and 100 autospins, and determine a win-and-loss limit. Once you’re set up, you’re ready to hit the large green arrow to the right of the reels!

When playing, it’s worth remembering that: The frog prince is the wild symbol, which substitutes for all symbols except for the scatter and pays out 500 coins for 5 of a kind; the game logo is the scatter, and the fairytale book is the bonus symbol.

You’ll find information on how the bonus rounds and features work in the sections below.


Features


Fairy Godmother Spin

The Fairy Godmother Spin is, well, the fairy godmother of features! It can be triggered randomly during any spin when “she” gracefully floats onto your screen and offers you the chance to choose one of three magic orbs. The orbs contain the following features: Pinocchio Wilds, Gingerbread Wild Reels, Puss In Wilds, the Bonus Award which will trigger one of the four bonus rounds, and the Fairy Win Spin.


Pinocchio Wilds

This can turn any reel position into a wild.


Gingerbread Man Wild Reels

This feature randomly turns any of the reels into wilds.


Puss In Wilds

This will turn the surrounding symbols into wild symbols.


Fairy Win Spin

This feature guarantees a big win on your next spin.


Bonuses

The bonus rounds can be activated in two ways – first by landing 3 “magic book” scatter symbols, and secondly, by picking the Bonus Award orb in the Fairy Godmother Spin feature.


Fairy Tale Bonus

When you land 3 “magic book” scatter symbols, you’ll activate the Fairy Tale Bonus. Here, you’ll get to choose a fairy tale – your choices are 3 Little Pigs Free Spins, Rapunzel Free Spins, Jack and the Beanstalk, or Rumpelstiltskin’s Deal Maker Bonus.


3 Little Pigs Free Spins

This feature awards a random number of free spins. After each spin, the 3 Little Pigs will climb onto your reels and turn a random symbol into a wild. These wilds will remain in place until the Big Bad Wolf blows them away. Additional free spins are often awarded during the last free spin.


Rapunzel Free Spins

Rapunzel is looking out for her prince, and you should be too! During this round, players are awarded an unlimited amount of free spins. When the prince lands on reel 5, he’ll start climbing up Rapunzel’s tower and gather a bunch of multipliers on the way. When he finally rescues her, the round of free spins ends, and you’ll get to enjoy the multipliers he fought so hard for.


Jack and the Beanstalk

Jack is growing his beanstalk… and you’re growing your bankroll in this bonus round! You’ll be transported to a magical cash trail with plenty of multipliers up for grabs. Reveal “ADVANCE” to grow the beanstalk, “COLLECT” to end the round and collect your winnings, and if you’re lucky enough to reach the “GOLDEN GOOSE”, you will be guaranteed a big payout – up to 1,000x your stake.


Rumpelstiltskin Deal Maker

In this bonus round, you’ll meet Rumpelstiltskin, who will offer you a contract that has a bonus cash prize or a mystery symbol. You can either sign the contract or refuse it, but remember, he’ll only offer you so many…


Our verdict

With an engaging theme, incredible graphics and animations, and enough bonus rounds to keep players endlessly entertained, it’s a yes from us!

PS. We have one more surprise for you. If you’ve given Wish Upon a Jackpot a go, and enjoyed all the magic and wonder on offer, you’ll be happy to know that there is now a Megaways slot version of the game.
