Genie’s Gems – A Pokie Not Worth Rubbing
Genie’s Gems is a Microgaming pokie that you can find on Jackpot City and other licensed online casinos. This is a 5 reel, 5 payline pokie, which tells you most of what you need to know about it. Basically, this is a very simple pokie and is a long way away from what we have come to expect from modern bonus pokies.
Genie’s Gems plays like a retro pokie in that it has limited graphics and you can play a limited number of coins per spin. The difference here is that Genie’s Gems has more paylines and more reels than what you might expect from a retro pokie. The graphics here are incredibly basic, which is perhaps to be expected from a pokie that was created a number of years ago.
Ignoring the graphics, Genie’s Gems has a lot going for it. The genie symbol returns a maximum win of 10,000 coins, whilst other symbols return half as much and a quarter as much as this. All symbols pay fairly well if you get enough of them, and this is a game that pays big and infrequently, as opposed to small and frequently.
Genie’s Gems has a decent betting range for such a small pokie.The minimum bet is $0.25, and the maximum is $25. The jackpot, on the other hand, is 10,000 coins, which doesn’t sound like a great deal, but it certainly adds up if you are staking a lot of money.
There are no bonus features on Genie’s Gems, which is a letdown to say the least, but is also probably to be expected from such a basic retro pokie.
Genie’s Gems is a little too basic for our tastes, and whilst we do like the big wins, it’s just not enough.
