Wheel of Fortune is one of the most popular TV game shows ever produced, so it’s little surprise to see a range of slots based around the show. This IGT designed game features a host of classic sevens symbols on the reels, alongside traditional fruit symbols. However, it’s the bonus action that really makes the game interesting. While the show itself features the word game before the wheel action, Wheel of Fortune Ultra 5 Reels takes you straight to the exciting spinning wheel.
This game is like ‘Triple Extreme Spin’ in the same range, though with a more standard reel setup. With so many spinning wheels you might get dizzy, but with so many wins on offer amongst the following highlights, you won’t mind at all:
At first glance, the wild symbol seems much like any other, with the word ‘wild’ handily written across it. Like any other wild, this will substitute for any other symbol in the game apart from the bonus and scatters.
However, any time you land one of these wild wins, the wild will transform into a wild multiplier. The multipliers in play are 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x, all ready to give your win a nice boost.
As well as the standard wild, there is also a ‘Wheel of Fortune 5x’ symbol on the reels, which acts as an additional wild, although this time you’ll know immediately you’ve got the maximum 5x multiplier.
Land three or more scatter wheels across any of the five reels and you’ll enter this mini-feature. This will simply see each scatter symbol transform into a mini ‘Wheel of Fortune’ game. Each of the 3, 4 or 5 wheels will now spin and pay an instant reward based on where the pointer stops.
The most exciting feature is activated by landing the ‘Ultra Wheel’ symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4. You’ll now get to spin the blue, red and purple bonus reels, with each of these spins determining if the appropriate bonus wheel is active, inactive or will have a multiplier attached to it.
Wheel 1 (the red wheel) features awards of between 300x to 10,000x the coin value.
Wheel 2 (the purple wheel) features awards of between 150x to 2,500x the coin value.
Wheel 3 (the blue wheel) features awards of between 100x to 500x the coin value.
Any multipliers awarded will be applied to the pay out from the appropriate wheel.
Wheel of Fortune Ultra 5 Reels plays out on five reels and features a total of 30 win-lines. The five highest paying symbols are the sevens which come in red, blue, white, purple and green varieties – paying between 400 and 150 coins as a top prize. Land a combination of the sevens together on a line and you’ll win 75 coins. The rest of the symbols are made up of the grapes, pears and oranges, while no classic pokie would be complete without the cherry.
While the range of symbols might be classic, the game itself has a fresh, colourful and modern design. IGT have gone all out with the title, encrusting it with diamonds, while the reels are of a sparkling sky blue. Check out the fruit symbols, which are also encrusted with diamonds.
Enter the bonus features and there are colourful wheels everywhere, complete with a golden background. The game show style soundtrack only adds to the fun atmosphere of the game.
There is nothing more exciting than a spin of the ‘Wheel of Fortune’, where you’ll be hoping the pointer eventually settles on one of those big numbers. That excitement hits you in droves in this IGT pokie, where the wheels feature in both bonus features. It’s the ‘Ultra Wheel’ bonus feature that really gets the heart rate going, where huge wins and multipliers could be heading your way. Win the big 10,000 coins and an added multiplier and your head will be in a spin!
