Five-reel, three-row Quickspin video slot Genie’s Touch has 20 set-in-stone Paylines and comes complete with a pair of cracking bonus features. It’s based on the well-loved story of Aladdin, the genie and his magic lamp. Once again, the Swedish operator’s love of fairytales and legends is clearly in evidence, with this game straight out of A Thousand and One Nights.
There’s an enticing purple background of starry Arabian skies, seen from an outside area of ornate columns and shallow marble steps, while the reels are framed in gold. This slot has Quickspin’s typical good looks, incorporating a sumptuous, colourful design with oversized symbols.
How to play
Play Genie’s Touch from a mere 20p a spin across all devices, mobile or otherwise.
A quartet of characters represents the high-value symbols here, including a white-bearded man (the king), a dark-haired young woman and a young man in a purple and gold turban (the prince and princess). There’s also a devilish-looking villainous character. Meanwhile, six simple lozenge-like coloured gems in yellow, green, orange, white, blue and pink constitute your less lucrative icons.
The displays to the left of the screen mean you can keep tabs on your credit balance. If you wish, hit Autoplay, then kick back and enjoy the game’s unique atmosphere without having to turn the reels manually.

The elaborate golden Wild replaces other icons in the standard fashion to help you create winning combos. The purple and gold bonus Scatter activates the free spins round described below, while the magic lamp icon ignites the Genie’s Touch feature.
Free spins round
As ever, launch this when you bag three Scatters. Here, you need to land them on Reels 2 through 4 to enjoy your reward of 10 freebies.

During the round, extra magic lamps may be added to the reels.
Genie’s Touch bonus feature
As we said, you’ll need three magic lamps to activate this perk. Then a symbol will be chosen randomly to replace the others, including the magic lamps, as the reels expand, triggering the maximum number of winning combos possible in one fell swoop.
The jackpot here is a comparatively modest 100x wager.
Return to Player (RTP)
Quickspin has been pretty generous with RTP or Return to Player here, at 96.9%, while this is a medium-volatility game, meaning you should be kept happy with regular, if smaller, wins.
This is just the sort of good-looking, smooth-playing game you’ll have come to expect if you’ve previously enjoyed this studio’s slots. What’s more, the mesmerising sound effects suit it down to the ground. So we reckon you’re in for a fun treat. Equally, you should find the theme particularly charming – it shows that you’re never too old for fairytales, after all!
What’s more, Genie’s Touch is a nice straightforward game, so it will suit the less experienced player.
