This slot might look familiar to fans of Disney’s Aladdin, but the sense of style is only skin deep. Below the surface this is a very simple slot with an RTP of 96.53%.
In the long list of things that Disney are responsible for completely upending, the story of Aladdin is right up near the top. This slot, for example, although making no direct effort to come in as a cheap post-Disney knock-off, takes its imagery wholesale from the Mouse.
Ignoring the story’s original Chinese setting, and making particular use of the parrot and monkey characters from the cartoon, this slot falls squarely into the area of plagiarism. The genie is even blue.
In short, if you want your adult gambling to invoke your childhood cartoons, here’s a slot you might like.
3 Genie Wishes has an excellent style. The "stolen" character designs are given a realism-makeover, rendering them closer to someone who might exist in the real world.
The music is a throbbing pseudo-Arabian track that drives the action forward excitingly and the win and spin sounds are low-key but effective.
The animations are rather dull for a slot which is trying so hard to be an animated film. Each symbol has a small win animation, but they are simple and perfunctory at best.
Overall, the slot has a superficially attractive style, though its simplicity may tire players who came for a sense of some whole new world-building.
3 Genie Wishes is a five reel slot with four rows and fifty paylines.
There is no gamble feature, nor is there much in the way of other bells and whistles. The bonus game is a simple Free Spins style game.
Overall, the gameplay is rather less exotic than a slot built around a Robin Williams film should be.
The Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter symbol.
Three or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels trigger the Bonus Feature. This starts with a picking game, in which the player is awarded one of several Bonus Features based on what they pick.

3 Genie Wishes is a solid slot. It looks nice, has a recognisable theme, and a great soundtrack.
The gameplay is a bit basic, but it does rub the lamp in all the right places. And most players will be satisfied with a free spin bonus. Just don’t expect miracles from this genie.
The medium volatility is a bit of a drag, but coupled with a decent RTP doesn’t rule this one out at all.
