How to Play

Like any 5-reel video slot, you need to select your coin size and number of lines before starting the game. It costs more to use more paylines but you stand a greater chance of winning and the payouts will be higher so choose wisely, the minimum bet is 20p and the maximum is £50. The aim is simple, just match symbols across fixed paylines to win coin payouts.

The symbols are all based on classic fairytales, with the frog prince is the game’s wild symbol and it can substitute for all other symbols in the game to form winning combinations, except for the game’s logo scatter icon. As well as being the wild symbol, the frog prince is also the highest paying symbol; it pays out 500 coins for five in a row.

Jackpots

Despite being named “Wish Upon a Jackpot” this slot doesn’t actually have a progressive jackpot and the payouts are only available via the base game and the game’s special features. That being said, there’s still plenty to play for: the frog prince pays out 500 coins in the base game and you can win up to 1000x your initial stake with the special features. However, although it does have larger than average payouts, Wish Upon a Jackpot has a high volatility and slightly lower than normal RTP which ranges between 92.46% – 95.26%

 

Special Features and Bonuses

As you’d expect from a Blueprint Gaming slot, Wish Upon a Jackpot is packed with highly rewarding special features. To trigger any of the following bonuses you need to land at least 3 scatter symbols anywhere on reels 1,3,5 at the same time. You then have to pick one of the books which will determine which of the following bonuses you’ve won:

  • Rumpelstiltskin Deal Maker feature: This feature offers you a multiplier deal which you can either accept or reject in the hope you’ll be given a better one. You can reject the offer up to five times before you must accept the prize. Be aware, the offers may increase or decrease so choose wisely.
  • Jack And The Beanstalk feature: With this feature you have to pick magic beans to make the beanstalk grow. The beanstalk will keep growing until you hit ‘Collect’ at which point the round is over. If you reach the top of the screen you can pick a Golden Goose Egg which guarantees a big win..
  • Three Little Pigs Free Spins feature: In this feature you will receive a certain number of free spins. During the free spins round any pig that lands on the reels will generate a random wild symbol which will remain in place for the duration of the round. However, the Big Bad Wolf can appear at any moment and blow the wilds away. Occasionally, the Pig Wizard will appear at the end of the free spins round and re-trigger the spins.
  • Rapunzel Free Spins feature: Another free spins round, but this one can feature Prince Charming on reel 5. If he lands he will gradually climb the tower. As he climbs higher the multiplier keeps increasing, and the round ends when the Prince reaches the tower.
