Wheel of Fortune – Triple Action Frenzy slot review
Game shows are always a popular basis for a slot game and it is no surprise that the Wheel of Fortune has stamped its mark on the slots industry in impressive fashion. This classic slot machine, synonymous with huge jackpot wins, can be found in casinos all over the world. And now it is online too, thanks to game developer IGT. Wheel of Fortune - Triple Action Frenzy is the follow up to Wheel of Fortune – Hollywood Edition and offers a twist on the popular slot.
On the Reels...
Wheel of Fortune – Triple Action Frenzy is a 5 reel, 15 payline slot that takes the game show to another level in the slots platform. Symbols on the reels consist of the Wheel of Fortune logo, a sports car, vacation image, cruise ship, contestant 1, contestant 2, and contestant 3. The regular symbols are represented by a melon, grapes, orange, lemon, and cherries instead of the usual 10-through-to-Ace symbols.
The Wild symbol is represented by the Wheel of Fortune Wild icon. This symbol substitutes for all other symbols, except for the Super Wilds and Scatters, to complete winning combinations and give you a big pay out.
And Super Wilds!
There is also a Super Wild symbol on this slot and it appears only on reel 3. It is represented by the Super Wild 3x icon and substitutes for all symbols, except the Scatters, to complete winning combinations. If it is part of a winning combination then it will expand into a selection of five prize envelopes. You must select an envelope to reveal a multiplier value up to 5x.
Win Big in the Triple Action Frenzy Bonus
On this slot, the Triple Action Bonus symbols act as the Scatters and these are the key to triggering the bonus feature on Wheel of Fortune – Triple Action Frenzy. In order to trigger the Triple Action Frenzy Bonus you must hit three Scatters across the reels.
Once triggered, you will be taken to a second screen. You will be presented with three colour-coded puzzles that fans of the game show will certainly recognise. You must attempt to solve these puzzles by picking letters from the selection of twenty tiles below the puzzles. To begin with, each puzzle has a multiplier of 1x but this multiplier is increased with every letter that is added. If you reveal a wheel pointer instead of a letter then you are taken to the Wheel of Fortune Bonus. The wheel pointer will be a colour, or several colours, relating to the above puzzles. This will determine your multiplier value. You will then spin the famous wheel to reveal a cash prize and multiplier value.
Wheel of Fortune – Triple Action Frenzy sounds a lot more vivacious than it actually is. The two layered bonus feature is frustrating because the triple action suggests there will either be three layers of bonus features or three different bonus features altogether. I had more enjoyment out of Deal or No Deal – The Banker's Riches by Endemol Games and 50,000 Pyramid from slots developer IGT and that's saying something! Still, if you're a Wheel of Fortune fan then you will be certain to want to give this a spin.
