Appearance and Sound Effects
Playing Wish Upon a Jackpot is like walking onto the set of a Disney movie or into a book of fairytales. A magical, mood-lifting instrumental soundtrack helps to reinforce the game's fantasy theme, and the setting is a forest containing a small lily pond (the home of the Frog Prince) which is faintly lit by lanterns hanging from the trees branches as well as the purple sunset and stars overhead.
The paytable symbols use familiar images relating to various fairytales such as Cinderella's glass slipper, the Giant from Jack and the Beanstalk's golden harp, the Frog Prince, a Castle, the game logo, a book of fairytales, and five playing card symbols.
Bonuses and Special Features
There are many special features to discover in Wish Upon a Jackpot, the first of which is the wild symbol. The wild is represented by the Frog Prince, and it can help you win more cash by creating wins when it substitutes for any symbol other than the scatter symbol.
Although the Wish Upon a Jackpot logo isn't a scatter or bonus symbol, it's the only symbol that ever appears stacked on the reels.
The Fairy Godmother has helped many a damsel-in-distress and princess-in-need, and in this Blueprint Gaming slot, she's got your back too. When she randomly flies onto the screen during any spin, she offers you a selection of magical orbs. Depending on which orb you pick, you get to enjoy one of the following five bonuses:
Bonus – awards one of the four Fairytale Bonus features;
Fairy Win Spin – awards a guaranteed winning spin;
Wild Reels – randomly turns any of the reels wild;
Puss in Wilds – turns surrounding symbols into extra wilds;
Pinocchio Wilds - adds wild overlays to existing symbols.
The Storybook scatter symbol in the Wish Upon a Jackpot slot triggers the Fairytale Bonus when it lands three or more times anywhere on the reels. By choosing one of the books on the screen, you'll reveal one of four Fairytale Bonus features:
Jack and the Beanstalk – help Jack climb up the beanstalk. Each step that you take can reveal an "Advance" symbol which increases the size of the bonus prize or "Collect" which ends the feature and awards the money you've won so far. If you reach the very top of the beanstalk, you get to take home the Golden Goose which can be worth as much as 1,000 times your total bet;
Rapunzel Free Spins – awards unlimited free games on a new screen featuring Rapunzel looking down from her room on the top floor of a tower. Whenever the Prince symbol lands on the reels, he climbs one floor up the tower while simultaneously increasing the win multiplier up to a maximum of x5. The feature is over once the Prince reaches Rapunzel;
Three Little Pigs Free Spins – gives you a random number of free games, and following each spin, the pigs can transform random symbols into wilds. Any wilds that are revealed stay in place until the Big Bad Wolf shows up and blows them off the screen. On your last free spin, you can be awarded a random number of extra free games;
Rumpelstiltskin's Deal Maker Bonus – you can refuse or accept Rumpelstiltskin's contract which consists of either a mystery bonus or an instant cash prize. But, he only offers so many contracts before you're forced to accept his current deal.
Wish Upon a Jackpot uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and twenty fixed paylines, and has an average RTP (Return to Player Rate) of between 92.46% and 95.26%. The game lets you create winning combos using matching symbols in succession from left to right, starting from the leftmost reel.
The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
The Wish Upon a Jackpot slot is like one of those books that you read which is so good, you're afraid to get to the end and have to say goodbye to its characters that you've come to know and love. With four fascinating and unique features on offer through the Fairytale Bonus, another five special features that can be awarded by the Fairy Godmother, and a wild symbol which can make winning prizes even easier, you'll want to return to relive the fun of this endearing online slot as often as you can.
