The Genie Wild Symbol
The Wild symbol in Genie Wild is the blonde beauty herself. The genie can be used as a substitute symbol replacing any other symbol in the game in order to form a winning combination on the reels. The only symbol the genie cannot replace is the bottle Scatter symbol. The genie also has the honour of being the highest paying symbol of the game. If players are lucky enough to find all five Wild symbols across the reels, this will trigger the main slot jackpot paying out 5000 coins on a single coin bet.
Free Spins with Expanding Wilds
The second bonus feature that offers up some big rewards is the free spins feature. The Scatter symbol is the key to unlocking this feature. The Scatter symbol in Genie Wild is the bottle symbol. The Scatter symbol itself pays out in any position on the reels and it acts as a bet multiplier. Finding all five Scatters on the reels will pay out up to 100x a players bet stake. To trigger the free spins bonus feature, players must land 3 or more Scatters anywhere on the reels. Once triggered, players will win 10 free spins. During the bonus feature, the Wild symbol becomes an expanding wild.
