Wish Upon a Jackpot MegaWays™
Wish Upon a Jackpot MegaWays Slot Review (Blueprint Gaming)
Blueprint’s hit slot from the year 2013 returns in a MegaWays makeover: Wish Upon a Jackpot MegaWays.
Featuring up to 117,649 ways to win and chain reactions with cascading symbols, the Fairy Godmother returns to cast some more spells. These will come up frequently in the form of three base game features and the main Free Spins bonus with an unlimited multiplier and one of three extra features. This can result in spellbinding wins of up to 50,000x bet or 250,000 credits, whichever comes first.
Wish Upon a Jackpot MegaWays is available from the 25th of June 2020. You’ll find the demo and real money version at licensed Blueprint slot sites like Grosvenor.

117,649 MegaWays + Cascades
Featuring polished graphics much like the original hit game, the 6×6 reel contains 10 regular symbols that pay up to 25x bet. The highest-paying also awards a win for just 2-of-a-kind, adjacently and from the leftmost reel.
The MegaWays mechanic, that’s licensed from Big Time Gaming, makes each spin unpredictable, showcasing 2-7 symbols per reel at random. Because the symbols can also appear stacked, each reel may also end up with a 7-high stacked symbol. It should be noted that there’s no Dual Reaction or that extra reel at the top of the reels like in Wish Upon a Leprechaun MegaWays, which changes game dynamics and I assume makes it less volatile too.
Once a win gets triggered, the winning symbols will magically disappear. At the same time, the symbols at the top fall down to fill the empty spaces and let new ones appear from above. This may result in back-to-back wins, assisted with occasional Wild symbols that replace for all but the Bonus symbol.
👍 Tip: Wish Upon a Jackpot MegaWays plays at medium volatility and relatively high hit frequency. However, wins tend to be small, so choose a bet size which you can comfortably play at least a few hundred spins. Bet limits range comfortably between 0.20 and 10 credits per spin.
Fairy Godmother Spin Feature
Once every 50 spins the Fairy Godmother will appear to award you with a random feature.
Choose one of three Orbs for a bonus spin with the following:
- Magic Beanstalk Stacked Wilds – Adds Wild Stacks with up to x7 multiplier.
- Pigs Can Fly Wilds – Places random Wild symbols.
- Golden Arrow Mystery Spin – Adds up to 100 Mystery symbols.
The most I’ve got from one of these features was around 70x bet. The Pigs Can Fly Wilds bonus offers the best win potential, especially when you are fortunate enough to trigger it with the Free Spins!
Free Spins Bonus with Unlimited Win Multiplier
There’s just one Free Spins bonus in this version of the game, instead of two. To win 10-12 Free Spins with an Unlimited Win Multiplier, you’ll need three or more Scatters anywhere on the screen. You’ll also get +1 free spin for every Scatter that appears during the feature. Just one Scatter is needed.
You’ll then have to pick 1 of 3 Magic Orbs to reveal a modifier that will be added to the freespins. It’s the same modifiers as from the Fairy Godmother feature and it will trigger randomly during the spins.
In addition, the free spins have an unlimited win multiplier which increases with every win. Frequent wins are the key to a successful bonus, although I’ve never won more than 110x even with multipliers reaching the 20x mark. Unfortunately, there’s also no way to buy the feature like you could with slots like Rick and Morty, so I guess it’s patience vs luck.
Players’ wishes have been granted as we once again journey into this fabulous fairytale slot with the inclusion of the Megaways™ mechanic and several new features. While fans of the classic release are sure to love the return of the fairy godmother, there’s now a spellbinding 117,649 ways to win which will make this appealing to even more players.Jo Purvis, Director of Marketing and Relationships at Blueprint
Blueprint Gaming has been very successful with some MegaWays slots and less with others. It has been a matter of time until Wish Upon a Jackpot 2 came out and it certainly has a spot in their MegaWays portfolio thanks to a few unique features. While I do have mixed feelings for it, the 117,649-ways slot has a better 95.99% RTP than the original (92.46-95.264%), and a way bigger maximum payout (although I have my own doubts whether anyone will win anywhere close anytime soon no matter how hard they wish). And even though the 2020 version has fewer bonuses, the sacrifices have been well made, which has streamlined gameplay for the better as a result.
Wish Upon a Jackpot MegaWays has more features than an average Blueprint MW slot, without the higher volatility of Genie Jackpots or Gods of Olympus. If that’s what you’re looking then give it a shot!
May the Fairy Godmother be with you!
