Wheel Of Fortune is an online video slot developed by IGT, and based on the popular television game show, Wheel Of Fortune. Wheel Of Fortune is a competition during which players must solve various word puzzles, and functions on the same concept as the timeless classic game, Hangman. The television game show first aired in 1975, and was adapted over the years that followed by various producers and television networks, so much so that it is still aired on television to this day. This certainly testifies to the Wheel Of Fortune success, and furthermore to the popularity of Hangman.
IGT has developed an online video slot with the same name, with its main Feature being the Hangman game.
The online slot is played on 5 reels and 15 paylines, and features the popular Hangman Triple Action Bonus Round.
Wheel Of Fortune Symbols
Symbols include three contestants, a luxury cruise ship, a car, a tropical island and the Wheel Of Fortune Logo. A luxury cruise, car and a vacation on a tropical island are all part and parcel of the prizes up for grabs when competing in the television game show and adds excitement to playing. Traditional fruit machine symbols also appear on the reels, being the lower paying symbols.
The blue Wheel Of Fortune wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols, with the exception of the Super Wild symbol and the Triple Action Bonus Symbol.
Wheel Of Fortune Super Wild Symbol
The Super Wild symbol only lands on reel 3, unfolding into a selection of 5 envelopes. The player is prompted to select any one of the 5 envelopes. Each envelope conceals a different multiplier, ranging from X2 to X5.
Triple Action Bonus Round – Hangman
Landing the Triple Action Bonus symbol anywhere on reels 1, 2 and 3 activates the Triple Action Bonus Round.
Three partially completed words appear on the screen during the Hangman game. The player must now select from word tiles appearing at the bottom of the screen, in order to attempt to complete the words. Each successful completion will apply a multiplier to the total bet.
As soon as any of the tiles reveal a pointer symbol, the Wheel Of Fortune round is activated. The number of colours appearing on the pointers is significant – the more colours, the higher the multiplier value applied to the eventual winning tally.
The Wheel Of Fortune is now spun, and the lucky prize value depends on where the pointer comes to a standstill on the wheel.
The Wheel Of Fortune Gamble Feature can be played after any pokies spin. A mini Wheel Of Fortune will appear, displaying alternating black and red positions on the wheel. In the event that the player guesses correctly – black or red – the winnings for that particular spin will be doubled. 5 guesses may be ventured in total.
Flexible Betting Options
Minimum bet starts at 0.01 credits per active payline, increasing up to 5 credits per active payline, placing the total maximum bet with all paylines activated, at 75 credits.
