Of all of Disney’s princesses, I love Princess Jasmine the most. She’s always dressed in beautiful silks and has handsome Aladdin as her prince/main man. They parade about on flying carpets and declare their wishes to generous Genies hiding in magical lamps. Isn’t that a wonderful way to live?
Well, this fairytale has inspired QuickSpin’s newest slot, which is titled “Genie’s Touch”. This slot game preserves some of the most iconic elements of Aladdin’s story; there’s a Genie to create winning combinations and lots of Free Spins. My wishes are granted, for now at least!

The Genie’s Touch slot is built like any other regular slot. The reels are configured in a 5×3 pattern and there are 20 paylines. The game starts at a minimum bet of 20p and goes up to £100 per spin. The return to player rate is slightly above industry-average at 96.9%. This number basically tells us that the game gives out decent returns.
The game’s risk profile hovers on the lower edge too, making it suitable for casual players and cheeky evening gaming sessions. However, it’s not the type of slot that makes millionaires. The maximum amount you can win per spin is only 350 times your wager. If there is one thing that caught my attention while playing, it is the fact that this game pays in bursts.
There are times where I was on a winning spree for a few rounds, and then stopped winning before the next burst. Not entirely sure if it is just my luck or the game is programmed to payout like that.
There are treasures awaiting inside the magical lamp. All you have to do is collect three or more magical lamps, anywhere on the reels. True to the original Aladdin story, a genie magically appears! She’ll wave her hands and transform symbols adjacent to her lamp with matching symbols.
This instantly gives you multiple wins over 20 paylines. The game info explains that the Genie (or the computer’s intelligent software) will automatically pick the best possible winning combination from the available symbols.
The fun doesn’t end there. You may have noticed the fuschia-coloured Bonus symbol. Trigger three of these on the reels and the game will reward you with 10 free spins. What’s better, the Free Spin rounds are configured such that you’ll get even more Magical Lamps. Finally, there’s an ornate gold Wild symbol that substitutes for all symbols except the Magical Lamp.
Genie’s Touch is styled ala Aladdin or Arabian Nights. The game screen is decorated with its opulent gems and exotic characters. I mean, doesn’t the main character look stunning in his hot pink turban and that charming smile! Meanwhile, alluring music plays softly in the background, transporting you gently into the treasure room.
The game’s designers have also added an air of glamour – every time a winning combination occurs, the edges of the symbols sparkle and the music twinkles. It’s the little touches like these that elevate the game from standard to top-notch.
Artwork in slot games have come a long way since the first mobile slots. Just compare the beautiful graphics in Genie’s Touch with that of NetEnt’s Arabian Nights! The gems there look downright awful! That gold borders around the symbols actually hurt my eyes! In contrast, Genie’s Touch looks like it was produced for a proper animated movie. The characters in Genie’s Touch look more stylish than Jasmine and Aladdin in Disney’s 1992 Aladdin movie!
Genie’s Touch is a light-and-easy type of game. The game mechanics are simple to grasp and the game return rate is decent, making it a good game for players to slowly build your bankroll. The bonus features are lots of fun too.
I can never get bored of a genie that produces winning combinations in front of my very eyes! Of course, since it’s a dainty game, there aren’t any gripping features to get you on the edge of your seat. There aren’t six-figure jackpots or multipliers to vie for either.
