The best Wish Upon A Jackpot slot guide


Our Wish Upon A Jackpot slot was launched in 2013 by UK games developer Blueprint Gaming but it’s fairly new to the OJO casino and it’s already making a splash! This little beauty is an action-packed medley of over 10 popular fairytales, so you’ll see elements from Cinderalla, Rumplestiltskin, Rapunzel and Jack & The Beanstalk. But make no mistake, this slot is all about the NINE different bonus features and wins of up to 1000x. CHA CHING!

Our Wish Upon A Jackpot slot review will give you the lowdown on how to play and what you can win when you play this mystical slot at PlayOJO.

Graphics and gameplay

The PlayOJO Wish Upon A Jackpot slot takes place in a type of anti-Westeros land where the characters of all fairy tales coexist happily together. The game is set in an enchanted forest but despite the syrupy nature of the subject matter, you get a sense this one doesn’t take itself too seriously, and the style of character design suggest a hint of black comedy (like all good fairy tales have!).

Low value symbols are represented by Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10 in a knobbly, mystic font. A magical castle comes next but it’s upstaged on the fairy tale icon league table by Cinderella’s slipper and a golden harp. Then comes the Wish Upon A Jackpot logo as the highest value regular symbol, followed by the Frog Prince who acts as the Wild.

Other characters include a Fairy Godmother-Shrek fusion creation, a dubious Rumpelstiltskin and some androgynous gingerbread men-people. The whole scene gets a generous sprinkle of magic dust and glinting starriness that give Wish Upon A Jackpot slot machine a pleasingly surreal quality.

Just like every Blueprint Gaming casino game, the interface is ludicrously easy to use. On desktop, you see a giant spin button, an Autoplay button, the stake toggle and a burger menu which is your gateway to paytable and bonus info, sound settings and game rules. On mobile you get...the same! Mobile has clearly come first but it works so well on desktop too that there just isn’t the need for a dedicated desktop version.

The important stuff

Wish Upon A Jackpot is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot with 20 paylines. You can bet between 20p and £500 per spin but when you’re choosing how much to bet per spin, remember that the stake setting determines your total bet which is then divided by 20 lines. Bet £0.20 per spin for example and any win – stated in coins in the paytable – will be multiplied by your line bet of £0.01.

Paytable wins for matching symbols are pretty hefty, ranging from 2 coins for a pair of WUAJ symbols to 400 coins for 5 of them. They can be Super Stacked on all 5 reels too. Land 5 Wilds, the only symbol with a higher value, and you’ll win 500 coins. The maximum win up for grabs on Wish Upon A Jackpot is 10,000x or £250,000, whichever is lower.

The Wish Upon A Jackpot RTP is somewhere between 92.46-95.26% and that will be affected by whether the slot is included in Blueprint’s progressive Jackpot King Deluxe network. You can read more about their jackpots in our Blueprint Gaming slots review.

While the Wish Upon A Jackpot slot RTP may seem a smidge lower than others from providers like Games Global, Big Time Gaming or Scientific Games, you get money back on every spin – win or lose – through OJOplus too. Cash monies!
