A Wheel of Fortune is always something that presents players with the chance of winning some great prizes. IGT have already gone down this route before with ‘Wheel of Fortune: Triple Action Frenzy’ and they are back again with ‘Wheel of Fortune: Triple Extreme Spin.’ It certainly gives you plenty of opportunities to have a profitable time playing the game.
‘The Wheel of Fortune’ has been a massively successful game show all over the world. Even the UK fell under its charms with a succession of hosts and repeats are still being shown to this very day.
This has a different look from some of the games you’ve played in the past. There are five reels and the first one has just three rows of symbols. The second sees that number increased to four and the third has the most with a total of five. The top row towers above all over the symbols. It’s back to four rows for the fourth reel and three for the fifth and final reel.
There are 720 ways to win in this game and that huge number owes its thanks to the Multiway Xtra format. This pays wins in both directions and also winning combinations for adjacent symbols. Playing the game costs between £0.50 to £500, ideal for those wanting some fun play and others looking to significantly boost their bank balance.
The high value symbols here all reflect the kind of luxury items we’d all be buying if coming into a fortune. There’s a yacht, a very flash car and a gold necklace. There’s also the Wheel of Fortune logo. Lower value symbols aren’t playing cards for a change, instead we get cherries, oranges, apples, plums, cherries and bananas.
There wasn’t a massive amount of thought when it came to designing the wild symbol. We simply get a big red ‘Wild’ on a blue background. It’s still an important symbol though being able to substitute for other symbols to get you some good winning combinations. We also have the Scatter symbol and the Triple Wheels symbol. These can activate bonus features so the wild can’t stand in for these.
All the information needed about the game is included in the paytable and the game rules. If you then have some free games, then you’ll keep building up your knowledge of just how the game runs. It’s an easy game to operate and if you want some automated spins then click on the autospins button. This can set between ten and fifty automated spins and you can stop them at any time you want. That’s handy if your balance gets to a promising level that you want to defend.
The Triple Extreme Spin Bonus is triggered if you can manage to get three or more of the Triple Wheel Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. You don’t go straight into the bonus round, first up you go to a second screen and you’ll see a number of envelopes. It’s your job to make some picks and how many you’re allowed depends on how many of the Scatter symbols triggered the bonus round.
Inside each envelope is a red, yellow or blue pointer that corresponds to the three wheels that you will see in the next stage. The task here is to get three of the same colour. Three red ones get you 250x your line bet. Three blues win you 100x and three yellow wins you 200x.
Three Mini Wheel bonus symbols trigger the Mini Wheel Bonus. Here you can win some tasty multiplier and cash prizes.
There’s a lot going on in this game. It has a bright look to it and the bonus games can definitely get you some big wins if your luck is in. No free spins round for a change but the spinning of the wheels and opening envelopes are more than adequate replacements.
