Wheel of Fortune Megaways slot review
Wheel of Fortune Megaways slot by Big Time Gaming uses IGT's license for that branded TV game show and is the second BTG slot based on a quiz show after Who Wants to Be a Millionaire Megaways. As with the traditional IGT slots using the Wheel of Fortune theme, we have a TV studio background for the reels and soundbites from the game with the trappings of wealth displayed on the reels. So how will our bankroll fare in this studio of dreams, fortune or failure?
On the reels...
There are 6 reels of 2 to 7 rows, each with symbols single and stacked on Wheel of Fortune Megaways slot. The 6-of-a-kind pays are 25x for the Diamond Ring, 2x Gold Plane, 1x Gold Boat and 0.9x Gold Car with six card values paying 0.7 down to 0.4x for a full way of 6. Your scatter is the Wheel of Fortune game logo, and Gold Wilds can appear on the centre 4 reels but with the occasional twist - they can randomly expand to create a 7-row Wild on up to 3 reels, thus awarding a 7, 49 or 343x multiplier on any ways-through! That's pretty much it, as the main action is contained within the free games.
You will be awarded 12, 14, 16 or 18 free games for 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters, respectively. A wheel will spin and decide the number of ways the spins are played. If you're lucky, it can be the full 117,649-ways but don't worry. You can increase these by landing the Gold WoF symbols on any reel. These will add 1 row to that reel each time, extend the reel to 10 rows and you will get a retrigger whereby the Wheel spins again, offering up 3 to 12 extra spins. This combination is similar to the White Rabbit slot where the cupcakes making the reel expand to 12 rows. You will now activate the Wild Megastack on any retriggering 10-row reel. This means Wilds can expand to the full 10 rows, and this can occur on a maximum of 2 expanded reels on any spin, thus awarding an effective 100x multiplier on anyways through.
Wheel of Fortune Megaways slot has an RTP of 96.46% and is the most volatile WoF slot you could play. With the potential of 343x Wilds in the base game and 100x in the bonus, there's certainly scope for some huge wins here! The sounds, graphics and animations are the same no-frills style we have come to expect from Big Time Gaming, with the same level of anticipation in the bonus. This is quite volatile in itself, with the retrigger signalling you will win big, but it's hard to if you don't extend a reel for those extra spins. If you like the quiz show theme and want to win big, then this wheel certainly could be one of fortune - yours...Review by Gamingslots
