10,000 Wishes Slot Review (Microgaming)

10,000 Wishes Slot Review (Microgaming)The slot game 10,000 Wishes is one of the new releases by Microgaming. It was actually created in collaboration with an independent studio, Alchemy Gaming.

The latter specializes in 3D animation and games development for casinos, and they are responsible for the graphics on this particular title.

Microgaming has a history of working with third-party developers to create their titles; Wheel of Wishes is another example that’s been released recently, also made by Alchemy Gaming.

As a gaming enthusiast, I had the privilege of gambling on this slot for real money, and here is my unbiased review:

Game Set-Up

I didn’t quite find the game area any impressive, especially after noticing that it has only 10 pay lines. However, that did not stop me from placing some best on 10,000 Wishes.

This is a 5-reel slot machine that offers several features as well. They include Power Spin mode with mega symbols, a Jackpot Wheel bonus, a wild, and some scatters.

Betting and Prizes

As much as $25 can go to a single spin, and the least allowed by Microgaming is $0.10 per round. Top payouts here are not as impressive and the highest that you can expect is 50x the stake via mega symbols, or alternatively 100x via wilds.

With the jackpot Wheel feature, you stand a chance to walk away with one of the four available jackpots that are worth between 25x to 10,000x the stake.

The slot’s medium volatility coupled with an impressive RTP of 96.27% makes it a worthwhile slot.

10,000 Wishes Slot Features

If you’re looking for a slot game with an extra twist, then 10,000 Wishes is just the thing. It has one of the most original and exciting features that we have seen in slots games recently.

The wild symbol appears on reels to replace other symbols, but it can cover up to 5 positions on a line if it does so- which means that you will get 100x your stake for each instance where this happens!

You can also try out Power Spin mode, and this feature requires the landing of Power Wheel icons, 3 or more times.

This process will allow you access to a single Power Spin, where the first and the last reels get a random top symbol.  Also, the middle reels get a 3x3 sized icon with a possibility of it being scattered.

With the 3x3 scatter symbol, you can spin the Jackpot Wheel spins. At this stage, you can hit the Mega Jackpot worth 10,000x the stake.

Other smaller jackpots available are Major (500x), Minor (75x) as well as Mini Jackpots (25x).

Theme & Design

It’s a game with a Middle Eastern style for its design, which has above average graphics. The story is set somewhere in the desert, and the reels are filled with symbols that have a connection to treasures or magic.

Treasure chests, spell books, pendants and potion bottles are shown in the top symbols. Low symbols give you the four card suits. Two feature symbols are also present, one being the Wild, and the other a Wheel.


As a Microgaming slot title, I knew I was in for a treat and sure enough, 10,000 Wishes did not disappoint.

I love the fact that as a medium volatility slot machine, this game still manages to pay quite well, and I can recommend it to all levels of players.
