Game of the Week – 10,000 Wishes
If you love the tale of The Arabian Nights or even Alladin, then you will likely enjoy 10,000 Wishes. 10,000 Wishes is the latest 5-Reel, 10 payline online pokies from Microgaming and Alchemy Gaming. The game an awesome Power Mode that can win your big prizes. There’s also a Bonus Wheel that can score you a jackpot prize up to $250,000.
10,000 Wishes Takes You on a Magical Journey
10,000 Wishes is the latest video pokie game from Alchemy Gaming. The game is based on the tale of The Arabian Nights. You’re out in the Arabian desert and you’re trying to win prizes by finding mystic artifacts and treasure.
Pay symbols for this game include royals, amulets, potion bottles, spell books, treasure chests, and the genie’s lamp. Royals barely turn a profit on 5 of a kind. For every other symbol, you have to make four of a kind or more to turn a profit on a single line win.
As usual, you have to make multi-line wins to turn a profit on most spins. There is a Wild symbol that substitutes for everything but the scatter. It pays on three or more on the board.
This game doesn’t have a free spins feature but has a couple of special features that can help you win big.
The Bonus Wheel symbol is also the scatter for this game. Get three or more on the board and you will trigger the Wheel Bonus. Once triggered, you will get a Power Spin that will award one of four guaranteed prizes. You can win the Mini, Minor, Major, or Mega Prize.
The Mini prize is worth 25x your triggering bet. Minor prizes are worth 75x your triggering bet. The Major prize is worth 500x your bet. Finally, the Mega Prize is worth 10,000x your triggering bet. Depending on how much you wager, the top prize is worth from $2,000 to $250,000.
I was never able to trigger this feature naturally, but there is a way you can give yourself better odds of triggering this bonus.
By clicking the Power Mode button, the game will switch from day to night and you will get permanent Power Spins. Each spin is 25x your base bet. Reels 1 and 5 will become a random symbol and the three middle symbols will merge to make giant symbols. All low-paying symbols are removed and only high-paying symbols and the Bonus Wheel symbol will remain.
This gives you a chance to make some insane wins. However, you also have an increased chance to trigger the Bonus Wheel. I was able to trigger the Bonus Wheel numerous times in the Power Mode. Most times, I was only able to win the Mini prize. Once I got the Minor.
Note that the Bonus Wheel triggers at the base bet of the game, not the Power Mode bet. Most of my Power Spins were $25, which meant the base bet was $1. As such, the Mini prize allowed me to break even on spins.
However, the Power Spins made numerous nice hits, allowing me to turn an otherwise losing session into a nice winning session.
10,000 Wishes Massive Prize Potential But It Will Cost You
10,000 Wishes is one of those games where you’re better off playing higher stakes. While I don’t normally advocate for playing a lot of buy features, in this case, you’ll do better by playing the Power Mode consistently.
As such, this game is best suited for those with larger bankrolls or high rollers. That doesn’t mean you can’t win money at the base game. However, the best odds of winning come with the Power Mode. Overall, this game has a fantastic RTP of 96.27%. It is definitely a game worth trying at least once.
