Review and recommendations by our testing team
- In the main game, despite the Wild symbols which fall on the screen, the slot makes long series of spins without winning combinations, and most of the winnings are only 0.5x – 4x total bets, less often, the slot gives winnings less than 0.5x or 6x – 15x.
- Despite the fact that the maximum potential of a slot in the main game is limited to a win of 300x bets, its real potential, in my opinion, is no more than 80x – 120x total bets, and during testing, the slot time to time gave winnings within 30x -45x. It can be said with confidence that in the main game the slot practically does not keep a balance, and even despite the random triggering of Genie, who gives out a win, the average value of which is 8x (most of the times is 4x – 15x).
- Keeping the balance or its increasing is possible only by bonus features.
- Triggering the bonus wheel, in which a bonus feature is randomly selected, occurs when three symbols of the lamp (scatter) are issued in the main game. Periodically, when issuing two bonus symbols (in the second and third reels), Genie can add a third bonus symbol to the fourth reel, or even can trigger the bonus feature without a single scatter.
- In most gaming sessions, bonus game activation occurs in series (up to 10 times almost in a row or with a minimum number of spins between them), and only occasionally the bonus game is issued only once. Also in series, the slot issues two scatter symbols each. The average expectation of the bonus game series is 80-120 spins, sometimes it can reach 200+ spins. So, the slot offers the player a number of bonus games, including Oasis, Lamp, Treasure, Gift and Gold. I note that this slot machine often gives out the same bonus again, i.e. in series, and often several bonus games in a row can be Oasis or Lamp, or a combination of Oasis + Lamp since the winnings in them are almost identical. During testing, a series of these bonuses reached up to 9 in a row.

So, the slot offers the player a number of bonus features, including Oasis, Lamp, Treasure, Gift and Gold. I note that this slot machine often gives out the same bonus again, i.e. in series, and often several bonus features in a row can be Oasis or Lamp, or a combination of Oasis + Lamp since the winnings in them are almost identical. During testing, a series of these bonuses reached up to 9 in a row.
- The slot often makes the same series when triggering Treasure and Gift features, giving either their combination or issuing one of them several times in a row. Such series, as a rule, does not exceed three bonus features in a row.
- The bonus Gold, slot basically triggers one-time and rarely repeats it 2 or more times.
- The feature Oasis is not offering any action from the player, but just need to click and see the winnings. Most of the winnings are minimal, and its average value is only 8x – 12x total bets and, as a rule, does not exceed 20x.
- The Lamp feature also does not provide any action, you just need to click on the lamp and see your winnings. The average win is 20x – 25x bets. Less often, the slot gives winnings from 15x to 20x, as well as 25x – 40x. The potential for more than 50x is practically eliminated and during testing, it was not possible to get such a win, although the developer put a maximum win of 150 bets.
- The Treasure feature is a classic bonus – pick and click. As a rule, the slot gives you a choice of 2-4 prizes with a total average win of 35x to 80x bets. A winning of less or more during testing was not observed.
- The bonus feature Gift essentially has similar gameplay with the Treasure, i.e. choice, but with little difference. As a rule, the slot allows you to select at least 4 prizes, the values each next is higher, for example, 4-9-15-25-34, etc. The average winning here is similar to the previous feature – 35x – 80x.
- The bonus Gold has completely different gameplay, unlike previous features, in which, we are offered free spins, but not from standard symbols from the main game, but coins thrown out by Genie. The number of free spins Genie gives out randomly, as a rule, from 2 to 6. Do not be upset if Genie issued only 2 spins since during them it is possible to get additional spins.
- During testing, it was observed that the average number of free spins is 8-10, regardless of the number of spins at the start. During the spins, Genie gives out coins in which we see our winnings. In most of them, the values of 1x and 2x, less often there are coins with a win 3x – 8x (more than 8x could not be seen).
- The average winning during this bonus feature is 100x - 140x total bets. Personally, I did not like in this slot how rude it was made, namely, the combinations in the main game, as well as the series of the bonus features. As it was written earlier, this slot is not keeping the balance well in the main game and compensating for the loss of balance, or its increase occurs mainly due to bonus features.
The slot can be used for the bonus money, but you must have a reserve of bet balance of at least 300 – 400 bets and be prepared for long sessions, as well as for periodic significant losses of balance. The average time of our session in this slot was 2-4 hours, while it was possible to increase the balance of 200x-300x bets due to bonus features series. Similar recommendations when playing with real money. Short game sessions are not recommended. You can also try the strategies for progressive increasing the bets.
