If you ask anyone to name a game show, it’s a sure thing that ‘Wheel of Fortune’ will be near the top of the list (alongside names such as ‘The Price is Right’, ‘Let’s Make a Deal’ or ‘The $100,000 Pyramid). First appearing on the TV in 1975, the spin of the ‘Wheel of Fortune’ is one of the most exciting moments in the game show genre. Contestants don’t have it easy however, as they have to win the word game against their adversaries first. Fortunately, there is no such wordplay in this pokie – you’ll simply spin the reels and then (hopefully) spin the wheel!
Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spin is one of many pokies themed on the popular game show. These range from classic 3-reel pokies to complex games with multiple bonus rounds. Here is what to look out for in this intensive addition to the range:
This IGT designed pokie features two wheel-based bonus features. The smaller, but no less fun feature is activated when you land three or more scatter symbols across any of the five reels.
Each of these scatter symbols will turn into a mini wheel of fortune, so small that it spins within the space of the symbol. Each wheel contains segments with cash prizes and the combination of the wheels can pay between 50 and 3,850 coins.
The main bonus feature of the game is activated by landing three bonus symbols across any of the reels, each symbol features three wheels. You’ll now get to choose from a series of envelopes on the bonus screen – the number of picks relating to the number of bonus symbols used in activating the feature.
Each pick you make will either give you a blue, red or yellow pointer award on the following wheels:
Blue Wheel – Values on this wheel are between 30 and 1,000 coins.
Red Wheel – Values on the red wheel range between 100 to 5,000 coins.
Yellow Wheel – The yellow wheel contains multipliers of 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 7x and 10x.
Having made the picks, you could have a series of pointers of one wheel or a combination of pointers across the three different reels. The three wheels will now spin and all awards under your pointers will be awarded. Any awarded multipliers will be applied to your total winnings across the other two reels.
Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spin has an unusual diamond shaped 3-4-5-4-3 reel set up. The games uses the Multiway Xtra format where you’ll win when lining up matching symbols on consecutive reels. As an added bonus, this pokie pays from both left to right and from right to left.
The wild symbol is the highest paying in the game, worth an eye-catching 10,000 coins if it appears on all five reels. A luxury yacht pays 1,000 coins, while an Emerald ring and a sports car pay 400 and 300 coins respectively. The rest of the reels are made up of fruit symbols such as cherries, bananas and oranges.
IGT have made the design as sparkling as the game play in Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spin. The backdrop to the reels features a space-like image glowing in blue and orange, while stars twinkle in the distance. The diamond-shaped reels are blue in colour and if you look closely you can see the ‘Wheel of Fortune’ itself in the design. Look out for some nice animation on the reels when you win and that high-energy gameshow soundtrack.
Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spin is an exciting pokie from IGT. Every spin gives the promise of landing those bonus wheels – either the mini wheels for those regular wins, or the main bonus game for that one ‘extreme’ spin. With three wheels in play and some huge wins and multipliers available, that extreme spin can offer up some incredible wins – one of the most exciting pokie bonus features you’ll find online.
