For a long time Genie Jackpots was one of my personal favourite slot machines, this along with Plants Vs Zombies which is only available online. Genie Jackpots however is available in a multitude of forms, with a multitude of jackpot sizes in many different locations.
I’ll detail the most popular versions available in this guide as well as list where you can play Genie Jackpots online and which offer the largest jackpots.
Genie Jackpots £500
By far the most common is the £500 jackpot Genie Jackpots slot machine, found in many locations but most commonly in arcades and William Hill bookies. There is a good gamble option, with various true random odds available, from x2 up to x10. The gamble is fair, with the odds been what you see is what you get. It is also a quick way to gamble up to the jackpot if you have the guts and the luck.
The gameplay is fun, with the majority of action coming from the reel features and the random features, all of which have large winning potential. The reel wins themselves are usually pretty poor, unless been enhanced by various wilds, which is where the random features come into play.
During any reel spin, the Genie may make an appearance and offer a choice of three genie lamps. Select one to earn your reward, these can be one of the three main features, or various wins and wild features.
The three main features come into play by landing a bonus symbol on reels one and three, with the third bonus symbol on reel five deciding the feature you will be awarded. If you play on £2 a spin, you will be offered a bonus re-spin anytime two bonus symbols are in view. The bonus re-spin uses an enhanced reel, dramatically increasing the chances of been awarded a feature.
Genie Jackpots Online
The online version of Genie Jackpots is by far the best, with William Hill offering the best version, closely followed by Sky Vegas, both of which use a progressive jackpot, however William Hill use the fantastic Vegas Millions progressive bonus which uses multiple progressives right up to the big £1m+ jackpot.
Aside from the progressive jackpots, the online versions of Genie Jackpots are identical and follow closely to the original £500 jackpot version.
As the stakes and prize values are higher, so too are the features. The best two random features; which are awarded the same way as the £500 slot machine, with the Genie appearing randomly during any spin, are the Genie Wilds. It’s possible to be awarded nine Genie Wilds with either a re-spin or a x2 bonus. This means that nine of the fifteen reel symbols can be wilds, resulting in a massive win. If you are lucky enough to get either the x2 or the re-spin, you’ll be awarded far more money.
These random high paying features make Genie Jackpots online one of the best online casino slot machines currently available.
Genie Jackpots £100
There is a less common £100 jackpot version of Genie Jackpots available in some arcades and bowling alleys. This version remains true to form to the £500 version but uses a lower percentage which results in less features and less wins.
The gamble option is the same as that on the £500 slot machine, but with a lower target you are more likely to reach it. I personally prefer the £500 and William Hill online version over this, but it can be fun for a short while.

Genie Jackpots Tips
This is a great game, available in multiple locations. Online the best version to play is over at William Hill due to the nature of the progressive pot which offers the chance to win over £1m. In the arcades and bookies Genie Jackpots behave the same way as Wish Upon a Jackpot, meaning that playing on £2 per spin offers the chance for a bonus respin on an enhanced reel. This is the most realistic way of been awarded the higher paying features, and it is surprisingly generous on the bonus reel so well worth a play if your budget allows for it.
