The Aliya’ Wishes slot can be found at casinos that stock Microgaming titles. Microgaming is a well-established provider of both slots and casino games, with an array of popular slots, including many big-name brands. As a standard Microgaming provides the Return to Player percentage in the help table of all their slots. As such we can say that the House Edge of Aliya’ Wishes is 4%.
This slot has an Arabian theme, with symbols that include a genie’s lamp and background set in, what could be a secluded riad, far away from the bustle of the streets outside. There are mysterious looking men and women that make up the other symbols, all of which is accompanied by suitably sounding Arabian music.
Aliya’ Wishes is a 5 reel game that is 3 symbols high. There are 20 paylines in this slot, playing from left to right.
Rolling Reels – This slot comes with rolling reels, meaning that each time you form a win, the symbols that did will disappear from the reels, with new ones dropping down in their place, giving you another chance to win. The process will continue as long as you keep landing winning combinations. Rolling Reels also come with a multiplier trail that will be described in the feature section of this review.
Wilds – The “Treasure Chest” is the Wild symbol, which will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters. The Wild also happens to be one of the most valuable symbols.
Scatters – The Scatter symbol is the “Genie’s Lamp”. You need 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels to trigger the Free Spins feature. The Scatter symbol has no monetary value and is only there to trigger Free Spins.
Win Booster – If you choose to play the Win Booster you will increase the size of each stage in the multiplier trail (this will be highlighted below in the Multiplier Trail section). Activating the Win Booster will double the size of your bet without increasing symbol value. However it will have an impact on the Multiplier Trail and it will reduce the house edge to 3.5% from the original 4%.
Free Spins – If you land 3 or more or the Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels you will trigger the Free Spins feature. 3, 4 or 5 Scatters awards 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins respectively. Free Spins can be retriggered and the Win Booster will only be active if it was active during the triggering bet.
This might not be the best looking Microgaming slot of 2020 but there are certainly enough features on offer for it to be one we do think is worth playing. You get the rolling reels and the multiplier trails that come with them. You get Free Spins and you get the Win Booster button that makes everything better, but a price. The house edge offers decent value when the win booster is not active and good value when it is.
