Wheel of Fortune brings a Television Classic to the Online Reels

IGT - Wheel of FortuneThe vast majority of online slots players in Canada will be highly familiar with the concept of Wheel of Fortune, the longstanding television show that gives players the opportunity to win cash and prizes based on the whims of a spinning wheel. As usual when it comes to licenced slots, IGT has once again come up trumps with their implementation of the game into a fully functional, exciting slot game. Naturally, slots players are only interested in the cash, and the good news is that random prizes only appear as graphical touches – the possibility of huge cash wins is truly endless on the Wheel of Fortune reels.

Since the creation of the show in 1975, Wheel of Fortune has gone from strength to strength with numerous international versions. In Canada, the majority of players will be familiar with the US version as no local English language version was made, although a French Canadian version known as La Roue Chanceuse appeared on TQS from 1989 to 1992. Whichever version appealed, players will find gameplay and excitement akin to the real thing on the reels, which feature various Contestant symbols plus the Sports Car and Cruise icons.

The standard slot game is played on the traditional five reel layout, with players able to select up to fifteen win lines and line bets that may range from $0.01 to $5, making for a maximum wager of $75 per spin. Five Wheel of Fortune logos on any of the fifteen win lines result in the player collecting an impressive 1,000 coin top prize.

IGT - Wheel of FortuneAnyone that has previously enjoyed a licenced online slot from IGT will know that they save the best for the bonuses and features, and that is most certainly the case on Wheel of Fortune, where numerous subtle touches inspired by the show lead to bigger prizes. The game features both a Wild and Super Wild Symbol, with both filling in potentially winning gaps on the reels but the latter also applying a multiplier, chosen by the player through the use of five different envelopes. The choice is offered automatically upon the appearance of the symbol, with each envelope containing a multiplier of between two and five times the original prize value.

The scatter symbol is denoted as the Triple Action Bonus symbol, with three or more on a spin allowing players access to the Triple Action Frenzy bonus round, where they can then attempt to play the game that is inspired by the show itself. The mechanics of the game are simple but lots of fun and see they player attempting to solve a word puzzle by selecting letters. Correct letters add a prize multiplier and completing the puzzle in its entirety gives players a spin of the Wheel of Fortune itself, where they win whatever amount appears, increased by the relevant multiplier.
