The Wish Master is a new video slot title from the Swedish game developer Net Entertainment. As its name implies, this is a genie-themed video slot game based on the famous Arabian story of Aladdin. This is a 5 reel video slot with the potential for big prizes.
Arabic myths are a popular theme these days, with slots from many different software houses making some variation on this theme. The 'big one' in this space is the Millionaire Genie over at 888. Fortunately the attention to detail of NetEnt and great balance between playability and bonus features so ensure that the Wish Master holds its own in this space.
Wish Master Slot Basics
The Wish Master is a 5-reel and 20-payline video slot featuring unique wilds. The cinematic feel, sharpness of the graphics, atmospheric music in the background and fully animated reel symbols helps you to become fully engaged as a player, this is not up there with the most intensive of slots, though I found it nicely engaging.
The bet level and coin value buttons can be toggled to change the amount you wish to wager per spin, ranging from 1 to 10 coins and $.01-$0.50 respectively, which caters to both budget conscious players and players that are wanting to up the stakes a little bit.
Wish Master Features
The genie in The Wish Master can be seen sticking its head out of the magical lamp on the bottom right of the screen. Whenever one of the magic lamp symbols appears on the reels, the Wish Master is released and will give you features, including random wilds, expanding wilds, wilds that fill the entire reel, an extra wild and even multipliers.
When the genie throws multipliers into its feature inventory, the remaining spins of the bonus feature will be multiplied by that specific number. So the wins can be really impressive in The Wish Master and it goes without saying that you really want to be getting magic lamps, it's the crucial symbol in the slot. Every time you find a magic lamp symbol on the reels, it will activate the special Wish Master feature for the next 10 paid spins.
You’ll be granted one wish to start off with but as the age old story goes you can be granted as many as three wishes. Whilst a feature is active you’ll be able to collect more magic lamp symbols and get additional features. The moment the genie pops out of the magic lamp during the Wish Master feature, the spins meter will be set again to 10, and the feature starts all over again, but this time with additional wishes added to your inventory.
And this is when things can become really interesting. For instance, let’s say you have the expanding wilds feature and you pair this with random wilds, it will turn more of the reel symbols into wilds to create more winning combinations. You’ll need to be patient to catch the magic lamps, because the smaller wins during the standard gameplay are typically not all that impressive, but as soon as you unleash the Wish Master, magical things can happen!
Also The Wish Master by NetEnt isn’t the only magical-themed video slot game available to play online. It’s worth your time checking out Arabian Nights, which is another imaginative and adventurous slot game from the same developer.m

The Wish Master Device Compatibility
The newly released Wish Master video slot game can be played at NetEnt online casinos and is designed to be played in your web browser, so you don’t have to download any software or install anything. NetEnt software is responsive, enabling you to play on touchscreen devices. I have not yet tested this game on phone-sized screens.
The Wish Master - Summary / Final Thoughts
This is a solid slot, with the smooth play and attention to detail you would expect from NetEnt. It is not the most interactive of games, with the bonus features centred on the reels - rather than break out games. The wins can still add up, especially when you get a good proportion of the reels covered in wild symbols. The top jackpot is staggering 900,000 coins - which more than makes up for the lack of a progressive jackpot pool.
