About Wheel Of Fortune Slot
If you are a fan of the Wheel of Fortune television game show, you may love the IGT video slot of the same name. This game combines the strategy of slot gaming with the sights, sounds, and bonus features of Wheel of Fortune. The only downside is that Pat and Vanna will not be there live to help you win.
There are quite a few slot games based on the Wheel of Fortune concept. However, this is the only game officially licenced by the creators of the TV show. It features 5 reels, 15 paylines, and 720 extra ways to win as explained below.
HOW TO PLAY
Use the + and - buttons to adjust both active paylines and Line Bet prior to spinning. The game includes Max Bet and Gamble features for those who want them.
The 720 extra ways to win are based on two concepts. First, like symbols do not have to be in the same position on consecutive reels to win. They only need to be on consecutive reels. Second, landing more than one like symbol on the same real increases the total number of winning ways for that spin by creating more combinations with adjacent reels.
WILD AND BONUS SYMBOLS
The Wild symbol is a blue symbol that substitutes for all others except the Super Wild and Bonus symbols. Wild symbols work as you'd expect: they can create winning combinations in conjunction with other like symbols, but they do not multiply prizes.
A player can gamble any award won on a standard spin simply by clicking the 'Gamble' button below the reels. Gambling will present a mini Wheel of Fortune game, prompting the user to determine where the wheel will stop. A correct guess multiplies the prize and generates another spin. An incorrect guess ends the gamble and results in a loss. Only five spins per gamble are allowed.
EXTRA BONUS FEATURES
The two Bonus features are what make Wheel of Fortune such an intriguing slot game. The first is that Super Wild feature that involves gold Super Wild symbols. If a single symbol appears on reel 3 during a standard spin, you will have the opportunity to pick a multiplier ranging from 2x-5x that will apply to all wins on that spin.
##TRIPLE ACTION BONUS Landing three Triple Action Bonus symbols during standard play triggers this feature. This game is a simulation of a classic Wheel of Fortune game in which you try to guess the word or phrase presented on the screen. Every correct letter you fill in adds a multiplier to your prize. The bonus game ends with you spinning a wheel to determine your cash award, multiplied by all of the multipliers you have earned during the round.
Wheel of Fortune's bonus features take a little getting used to, particularly the Triple Action Bonus. But getting the hang of this game and you will have a great time every time you play.
