The description of this challenge is slightly misleading. Simply loading up the table and defeating the genie will not unlock the challenge. In point of fact it is actually tied to Wizard Goal 5 on the table. While this goal is awarded for defeating the genie, completing it requires that you first unlock wizard goals by completing all standard goals. Notably this means you can’t cash this challenge until you manage to start the harem multiball mode, which is possibly the trickiest standard goal in all of The Pinball Arcade.

There is some good advice for spelling HAREM back on the solutions for the Xbox 360 TOTAN standard goals achievement:
The Pinball Arcade (Xbox 360)Tales SkilledThe Tales Skilled achievement in The Pinball Arcade (Xbox 360) worth 31 pointsComplete the Standard Goals on Tales of the Arabian Nights®.

Once you have completed all five standard goals, drain the rest of your balls and end the game. This will unlock the wizard goals list. Now you can go after the genie and complete this challenge. Also worth noting: the challenge won’t actually pop the second you rescue the princess. It waits until the end of the game in which you do so.

If you need help completing the jeweled scimitar and defeating Saleem Bagazi, check out the 360 solutions for the TOTAN wizard goals achievement:
The Pinball Arcade (Xbox 360)Tales WizardThe Tales Wizard achievement in The Pinball Arcade (Xbox 360) worth 69 pointsComplete the Wizard Goals on Tales of the Arabian Nights®.

And finally, the Xbox One achievements app indicates that completing this challenge grants an in-game reward of a TOTAN ball skin. However, I suppose this is glitched or something. After the challenge popped I went into the custom ball selector for the table and did not see any new skins. I’ll update this solution if anybody figures out how to enable this skin or FarSight fix any glitch that is preventing it from appearing in the list.
