Slots Review: Dream of Jeannie Magic Spin, Magic 8 Ball, The Dating Game

2 June 2005

The three slot reviews below are new IGT versions that offer Instant Wins of at least $100,000.

1) Dream of Jeannie Magic Spin:

Barbara Eden's voice is back with another Jeannie version. This time though, you will find a mechanical top box bonus displaying two bonus reels. Another first is that the progressive $100,000+ prize is one of the highest found at a multi-denomination game offering 'pennies to play'. The main bonus event is triggered when Jeannie's bottle lands on the second or fourth reel. The bottle then expands to fill the reel and payouts are doubled for any combo on paylines in this area. Another is the Magic Spin Bonus that occurs when 3 or more Bonus Symbols are spun thus revealing a group of genie bottles awaiting your selection and bonus credits. If the selected bottle reveals a Magic Spin Multiplier symbol, the two-tiered top box comes into play providing multiplier amounts from 2X to 5X plus a bonus $ value for a total bonus reward.

The 'best of Jeannie' is the top reward for five TV Hits symbols offering at least $100,000 and reset at that amount.

This is the moment that you are truly, The Master.

2) Magic 8 Ball:

IGT goes big for this game with a large 8-Ball hanging above you encased in the top box. Look up and you are sure to find this 'Instant Winner' slot on the casino floor. The main event is a go when three 8-Ball symbols land on the first three reels of an active payline, then a question mark appears on the screen. Your touch of the screen will provide two, three or four spins of the giant pool ball and a cue to begin the ball spinning. Among several bonus options, a stop of the 8 spot will give the player 8 free spins. One of the IGT Famous Games, this slot boasts frequent bonus rounds and high payouts. The top jackpot is yours for five 8-Ball symbols on the first payline with a payday of at least $100,000.

It's Instant Magic under 'the Big Ball'.

3) The Dating Game:

You will remember this golden oldie where a bachelorette questions three bachelors before choosing one for a dream date. The game is re-created with symbols of hearts, eager bachelors, beautiful bachelorettes and of course, the voice of your host, Jim Lange. One of two bonus rounds is The Dating Game Bonus that begins when three bachelor or bachelorette silhouette symbols appear on the first four reels. Your choice will determine a bonus amount. Secondly, two Jim Lange symbols in any position on the second and fourth reel trigger a free spin round titled Blow Me a Kiss Bonus. You are then rewarded with 10 free spins that may continue to a second round of free spins as the Kiss Me symbols accumulate. If you receive credit for five symbols, the game adds 10 more free spins and possibly more as $$$ continue to mount. This round ends when no free spins remain or when you have gone through a total of 200 free spins. The largest reward is reserved for five Dating Game symbols in a row with max coins in play.

After an Instant Win, the game resets at $100,000. awaiting the next dreamy date.
