What is the Wheel of Wishes slot?

At first glimpse, the Wheel of Wishes slot doesn’t look particularly different to any of the many other 5×3 reel slot games that you can find in their hundreds at bet365 Games from Microgaming and its assortment of partners. The game is based on an Arabian Nights theme, which is a pretty popular theme in slot games, and it boasts the usual bonus features including a Wild symbol and a Scatter symbol.

The base game also offers a chance to win a decent amount of money without having to trigger any of the main bonus features, but it is precisely these bonus features that have got people so excited about the game.

And the reason for that, is that this new game looks set to have a guaranteed top progressive jackpot prize of TWO million. An amount which is double the one million that the current Mega Moolah top progressive jackpot is seeded at.

Wowpot Jackpot

This has come about after a little bit of restructuring by Microgaming. For the last decade or so, the company has run a very successful progressive jackpot network which has paid out over a billion in prize money to lucky winners. Although most of the big money winners have come on games like Mega Moolah and Major Millions, there have been other progressive games available with smaller jackpot prizes.

One of these was the Wowpot slot game which had a progressive prize that ran up to around 10,000. However, a short time ago, the Wowpot slot was discontinued and speculation mounted that Microgaming were going to do something a little different with this particular jackpot prize.

It turns out that these hunches were absolutely right. The Wowpot progressive prize will be the top prize on the new Wheel of Wishes slot. This will make it clearly different to the other big progressive jackpot game, Mega Moolah, which also has four jackpot prizes, the Mini, Minor, Major and Mega, while the new Wheel of Wishes slot will also have the Mini, Minor and Major prizes as well as the massive Wowpot jackpot.

The fact that this jackpot will be seeded at 2 million is a huge thing. This will make it one of the most popularly played slots of the year, especially when you can spin the reels for just £0.20 per spin (although you can increase this up to £20.00 per spin if you prefer).  That means that the minimum cost to play a spin is 5p less than on Mega Moolah, and for that you will have a top jackpot prize seeded at double the amount.

How do you win the Wowpot jackpot?

The key to winning the Wowpot Jackpot is to trigger the Power Mode on the Wheel of Wishes slot. You can choose to activate this feature before you spin, but it will increase the cost of your spin by 10x the standard amount.  So it is an expensive bonus to access in this way, but you can also access it in the base game by landing two of the Wowpot Jackpot Scatters on the reels on any regular spin.

When this occurs, you will see the middle three reels combine into one large reel and on this large reel will be some very large symbols, corresponding to the symbols in the main game. The first and fifth reels will then turn all into one symbol and if you can match those symbols with the big symbol in the middle, you can land a very sizeable win.

However, if you land the Jackpot Scatter big symbol in full on the middle reel, then you will trigger the Jackpot Bonus game, and it is here that you will spin the wheel in order to claim one of the four jackpot prizes available.

The Mini jackpot is seeded at 10.00, the Minor jackpot at 100.00, the Major jackpot at 50,000 and the Wowpot Jackpot is seeded at a massive 2,000,000.

However, this is a progressive jackpot game and the longer that a jackpot goes without being won, and the more spins played on the slot by players, then there is no telling how large the jackpot can grow to. The Mega Moolah slot, for example, paid out a prize of over 20 million in Canadian Dollars back at the start of 2019 and it has also paid out a number of prizes of over 10 million in a variety of currencies in recent years.  All that from an initial seed amount of 1 million.

While some of the finer points of the slot are being kept closely under wraps, the demo version of the game has shown the Wheel of Wishes slot to be fun to play and the addition of the four progressive jackpots will only enhance its appeal to players.

When will Wheel of Wishes be available at bet365 Games?

Although the exact date of release has not yet been confirmed, and even if it was it could be subject to change, the feeling in the industry is that Microgaming will release this new game at some point either in late January or early to mid-February. A date of February 11th has been tentatively mentioned in a number of reviews, but how accurate that is remains to be seen.

However, until then, you can amuse yourself playing a wide range of other progressive jackpot slot games at bet365 Games, including the Mega Jackpots slots, more Microgaming progressives and a wide selection of other slots, some offering progressive jackpots that run into millions.
