About Rise of the Genie
Rise of the Genie is a sensational-looking slot from the fine minds over at iSoftBet. A three-reel slot, but far from traditional in terms of its look, you immediately know you’re in for something unique when you open the game screen to be greeted by the 3x3, five payline reelset on one side of the screen, and a set of three ladders on the other.
Those ladders are vital to the gameplay, but they are also used to bring the multi-coloured design of this slot to life. With a stunning desert backdrop behind the reels, and lamps, books, and other themed symbols on the reels, all beautifully stylised.
The gameplay is unique too, as you don’t only collect wins, but also build up additional prizes in the ladders. The aim of the game is to collect these before the evil genie appears and resets all the rise values.

Rise of the Genie Bonus Features
Next to the reels of Rise of the Genie you will see three ladders. As you land winning combinations - which in the case of this slot is any two or three matching symbols on a payline - you will climb the ladders in turn.
The first ladder goes up to 50x your stake, the second reaches 500x your bet, and the final ladder maxes out at 120x your bet. Each ladder is filled by different winning combinations, so it’s possible to be building all three up at once.
There is a collect button where you can take the value of all the ladders from the cash pot. There is an Evil Genie that can appear at any time, sometimes he just pops his head in to remind you he’s there, other times, he appears over the reels after a spin. If the latter occurs, the genie will remove all the values from the ladders.

While you will pick up wins for every winning combination as you would with any other slot, it’s those ladders next to the screen that add a different element to the gameplay.
