Wheel of Wealth

The Wheel of Wealth Special Edition is a five-reel online video slot with twenty-five pay-lines based on the well-known TV game show, Wheel of Fortune.

It’s the follow-up to the original three-reel Wheel of Wealth slot by Microgaming, and this newer version employs more features as well as two additional reels. In this modernised version of an arcade fruit machine, you’ll find wilds, scatters, and a Spin the Wheel bonus game. Plus, there’s the potential to get your hands on a maximum coin jackpot of a whopping 100,000!

Alongside the traditional fruit machine symbols of cherries, apples, watermelons, grapes, limes, oranges, and gold bars that are all displayed in glorious technicolour detail. You’ll find wads of cash, fast cars, diamonds, and aeroplanes. The highest paying symbols are the Wheel of Wealth Special Edition wild logo that pays 10, 100, 1,000, and 10,000 for two, three, four, or five-of-a-kind. Followed by the Aeroplane (pays up to 750), Fast Car (up to 500), Diamond (up to 300), and Gold Bars (up to 250).

The soundtrack for Wheel of Wealth is designed to give you the sense of playing in a real-life gaming arcade with the chirping sounds of fruit machines surrounding you, which is a nice touch unless you find it a tad distracting. Just hit the ‘mute’ button, and you’ll be able to relax without any interruptions.

The betting range should suit all players’ budgets as it goes from as low as 0.01 all the way up to 125.00. Equally flexible is the coin bet range that runs from 0.01 up to 0.50, and you can bet with as many as ten coins per line.

For the high rollers who don’t like to get their hands mucky hitting the spin button every time they play, there is the Expert function. It allows for auto play (from 5 to500 spins) meaning that you can enjoy other online gaming activities while your gameplay takes care of itself. If this is not for you then stick to the regular option, and you will have more control of the action
