Online Wheel of Fortune Slot Machine Games
Wheel of Fortune Slot Machines
The Wheel of Fortune slot machines are based on the popular and long-running Wheel of Fortune television show and are available in a wide range of base games. Developed and manufactured by International Game Technology (IGT), the Wheel of Fortune slots franchise is one of the most played slot machine games in casinos from Las Vegas to Atlantic City.
Depending on where you are playing, Wheel of Fortune slot machines can be found in 3 reel, 5 reel and video variations. A few of the most popular base games include:
- Red White and Blue
- Double Diamond
- Five Times Pay
The base game doesnt really have anything to do with the Wheel of Fortune bonus spin, other than the requirement to hit the correct combination to activate the bonus spin, so if you enjoy a particular IGT game, you may be able to find it attached to a Wheel of Fortune bonus.
Once you activate the bonus spin, a "Wheel of Fortune" on top of the machine is activated. The games have a button to push that starts the wheel spinning and awards you, depending on where the wheel stops, anywhere from 25 coins up to the current progressive jackpot. (Not all Wheel of Fortune slot machines are tied to a progressive jackpot. Some of them have a top payout of only 1,000 coins.)
As the wheel spins, the sound of an audience chanting Wheel of Fortune starts, which adds to the excitement of the game. Players from all around the slots area stop what they are doing just to watch the spin. One elderly Wheel of Fortune slots winner hit a big jackpot that didn't require spinning the wheel. When the manager came over to congratulate him on his six figure win, the gentleman asked, "When do I get to spin the wheel again?" He was disappointed that he wasn't getting to spin the wheel, even though he'd just won a huge jackpot.
To be eligible for the bonus spin, you must bet the maximum amount of coins on each spin. The maximum bet is 3 coins on most machines, but you should always check before playing. There are very few worse feelings in the world than hitting a bonus spin combination and finding that you cant have it because you didnt wager the maximum number of coins.
Multi Player Wheel of Fortune Slots
The multi player version of Wheel of Fortune is a neat way to play. I saw a bank of these machines on my last trip to Las Vegas. A bank of Wheel of Fortune slot machines, all tied to the same wheel surrounds the large bonus wheel. It is quite a sight and everyone seemed to be having a great time playing this version.
Multi Level Progressive Wheel of Fortune Slots Machines
IGT recently added a multi level progressive version of their Wheel of Fortune slot machine franchise. They have waited a long time to add this option. The multi level progressive option has been available on lots of slot machines. These types of games are very popular among slots players.
Wheel of Fortune Slots Online
Almost every online casino offers a variation of the Wheel of Fortune slots game online using a slightly different name to avoid trademark infringement.
The Wheel of Chance slot machine at SuperSlots is one of the best. Wheel of Chance is a 5-line video online slot machine with 20 paylines and bets from .01 to $10. The game offers a $160,000 jackpot, and the bonus game (almost identical to the Wheel of Fortune bonus game) offers up to an additional $144,000 in prizes.
Another great game you might enjoy reading about is Shocking Headlines slots, and the new World Poker Tour Slots is getting a lot of press too. And even though it's not a game show, people who like Wheel of Fortune might also enjoy learning about The Apprentice Slots. Evel Knievel Slots are fun too.
