To be honest it’s very hard to say any meaningful things about the visual appearance of Wheel of Fortune for some reasons. First, I still don’t have a clue what’s behind the reel area. I see there just an uncategorized object without any familiar silhouette while there’s all big blue around it. Basically, we can’t speak of graphics here, it even isn’t evaluable at all. Moving on to the theme of the game and its symbols, the first one is also a mystery for me as the symbols it uses are very different from each other like ship, gold bars, grape, ring, strawberry. If I have to tell something I’d say it tries to illustrate what to do with a big win on a wheel of fortune but the fruit symbols still don’t fit to this theory, so leave it all to hell. To be serious, the slot hasn’t got good graphics, the design is poor and I don’t like at all the minimized visible area of the reels so I can’t say I’d like its appearance at all.
What makes Wheel of Fortune slot still interesting is the uncommon game features and the fact it has a great 12.500 coins main prize, especially if I consider it’s just a 5-payline slot. This Jackpot is available to be won by not just one but 2 symbols. A five of a kind type win with either Wilds or Wheel of Fortune emblems would mean a good day to the lucky gambler. Besides to do this nice thing, the Wild figure only substitutes for other symbols without multiplying the wins.
The slot’s unique feature is the mini Bonus Jackpot feature. In normal game mode there are 3 kinds of Bonus Jackpot emblems and if they appear on the reels either the that much or doubled amount what the total bet was added to the bonus meter depending on what Bonus emblem was visible (Red, Orange or Yellow – the first one doubles the other two add the same amount of total bet). To have a chance to win one of these collected Jackpot amounts the player needs to get an entry to free spins by the help of 3 appearing Bonus symbols. There we have to spin the wheel of fortune which contains on 2 slides the Jackpots (the creators was a little bit tricky as they assigned one slide to the less paying mini Jackpot while the other slide is separated to 3 equal parts with Orange-Red-Orange allocation). After the first spin the next one is played with newly inserted 4 Bankrupt slides what would end the side game. Every successful spin gives a possibility to the player to collect the won amount or spin again but every spin has more and more built in Bankrupt slides so the chance to win the Jackpot or any amount is rapidly decreased. When it happens the player get a little consolidation prize.
I find this side game very funny and interesting and it’s a little bit comparable to the gambling side games especially if I mention that after the Bankrupt came along there’s a final chance to not leave the extra session without win and then the game offers another opportunity on the wheel but this time the slides are just Double or Bankrupt strictly placed next to each other on the wheel.
Just and exclusively this side game is the reason why I return to this game. I very enjoy playing with it if I get an entry there and I like that this is not the typical secondary game that sometimes can be boring. Though I haven’t had any big win on this slot and haven’t left the game with noticeable profits but it really could entertain me despite the fact that its interface is not too attractive for me.
(Note: After writing this review I noticed that this game listed as IGT game but I mainly play with it at 888Casino where a little bit different how this slot looks like so my thoughts about its interface applies to this.)
