Obviously based on one of the most popular T.V. game shows ever, Wheel of Fortune slots were a hit the minute they came out. In recent times, the slot machine’s manufacturer, IGT has clearly sought to up the ante by launching several versions of the Wheel of Fortune one-armed bandits.
The “Special Edition” is a new video slot featuring actual clips of TV show hosts Pat Sajak and Vanna White guiding players through the action of the game. The new version will showcase upgraded graphics and enhanced stereo sound to no doubt distract you from the fact that there’s nothing more than just an ordinary slot machine under the hood. The slots are five-reel, fifteen-line games allowing bets of up to 75 coins per spin.
This new video Wheel of Fortune slots will also introduce new bonus round-features, including the Triple Action wheel. On the regular slots, if you get a bonus round, you get to spin the wheel and whatever your bet was is multiplied by whatever slot your wheel landed on (i.e.: Five times bet, 10 times bet, etc.). With the new features, players have a chance to solve actual word puzzles associated with red, yellow, and blue pointers above the wheel. Get all three right and you’ll get all three multipliers that the pointers landed on.
The other bonus round feature is called Money Spin. When you spin the wheel, you might get a bonus amount and go on your merry way like usual. Or, you might get a bonus amount and second spin of the wheel to add to your winnings. And if you’re really lucky, you’ll get that bonus amount and launch a completely separate version of the video slot game featuring six reels, four rows, and 20 pay lines, allowing you to really rack up the dough.
