Lost City of the Djinn Slot Review 2022
The hunt is on to find the magical lamp, free the Djinn and have all your wishes granted, in Thunderkick’s latest release, Lost City of the Djinn!
Lost City of the Djinn is a brand new slot from Thunderkick, which is inspired by the stories of the 1,001 Nights. Mysterious adventure and plenty of riches await you, deep in the ruins of the Lost City of the Djinn. In order to free the Djinn and his powers, you must first find the magical Lamp if he is to grant you all your wishes.
Thunderkick is definitely the Provider to tease us the most when it comes to their new releases, leaving quite the time gap between them. Lava Lava was the last Thunderkick title to grace our screens back in March, and since then we have been patiently waiting for the next one to come along. Now that it’s here, is Lost City of the Djinn worth the wait?
Looking into theme, if you happen to love Dinsey movies, Lost City of the Djinn may remind you of Aladdin. Now it could just be coincidence, but we are pretty sure we said the same thing about Lava Lava and how it resembles another Disney title, Moana. Maybe Thunderkick are feeling a little inspired by these particular titles, but either way it will be interesting to see where they go with their next release.
Thunderkick has opted for some excellent cartoon style graphics, which work nicely with the Middle Eastern theme. The background isn’t the most detailed we’ve seen, but this soon becomes a minor detail when you are met with bright and cheerful colours on the reel set. Like many Thunderkick titles, there is nothing terrifying about Lost City of the Djinn, which falls into their more cute and cuddly slots collection.
Will you be able to free the Djinn and reap the rewards? Let’a play on and find out!
Lost City of the Djinn Base Game and Features

Low paying symbols fall to Hearts, Diamonds, Spades and Clubs. There is also a Wild symbol present, which substitutes for all symbols except Scatters and Cash Scatters.
You wished for a feature and just like that Thunderkick granted it, by delivering a Massive Mystery Symbol in the base game. More on this below.
Massive Mystery Symbol
During any random spin in the base game, a 3×3 Massive Mystery symbol may randomly land, covering reels 2, 3 and 4.
Once this happens, the Massive Mystery symbol will then transform into any High or Low-paying symbol, excluding Scatters.
The Massive Mystery symbol will also make an appearance during each Free Spin in the Free Spins round.
Lost City of the Djinn Free Spins
There are 2 Bonus rounds available in Lost City of the Djinn, one offers a selection of Free Spins and the other is a Hold & Win type round.
Landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters in any position on the reels, triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 10, 15 and 20 Free Spins respectively.
The Massive Mystery symbol is active during the Free Spins round, and is guaranteed to land with every Free Spin.
Lost City of the Djinn: Djinn Spins
Landing 3 or more Cash Scatters on 3 or more reels, triggers the Djinn Spins round, awarding 3 Respins.
Once the Djinn Spins round is active, the triggering Cash Scatters will automatically lock into position on the grid, and Respins will begin. Only Blank spaces, Cash Scatters with a value between 1x and 50x your current bet, Upgrade and Copy symbols are present during this round.
- Upgrade – When the Upgrade symbol appears, it will Add it’s own Cash Value to all others on the grid.
- Copy – When the Copy symbol appears, it will copy all current Values on the grid onto itself.
Each time any of the above symbols lands in an empty position on the grid, they will become locked into their current positions for the duration of Djinn Spins, resetting all Respins back to 3.
Pattern Collect Feature
During Djinn Spins, you will notice that 5 grid positions are illuminated. When these positions are filled with a symbol, the Pattern Collect feature is activated.
The Values of all 5 Cash symbols are collected and added to the middle position on the grid, which then Doubles the current Values. All affected symbols except the Middle position are removed and a new pattern is set.
Lost City of the Djinn: Our Verdict
The Lost City of Djinn really does scream Baron Bloodmore and the Crimson Castle, which was a may 2021 release from the same provider which took us to a dark castle inhabited by Baron Bloodmore.
Baron Bloodmore enjoyed ample success from Thunderkick fans, and it created some new ones with some exilerhating gameplay and big potential.
Lost City of Djinn really just is another Baron Bloodmore in essence, but with a middle eastern theme instead.
The maximum potential of Lost City of Djinn is 25,000x, which is identical to that of Baron Bloodmore, but the RTP is slightly lower which could make it a 2nd choice for those pondering between the two.
Thunderkick are a reliable provider and you always sort of know what to expect with them. That’s not to say they’re predictable, but each and every release abides by a certain standard, which makes every release as dependable as the last.
Overall, if you’re looking for a Thunderkick fix then Lost City of Djinn is a good choice, but it’s no better a choice than Baron Bloodmore.
At the end of the day, preference will decide which one you choose. Dark Vampire or Arabian nights?
