IGT has released another great, new video pokie game on the market, which pays tribute to the mega popular seventies show, Wheel of Fortune. This cult TV show was the favorite past time for many American families, as the players had a chance to win great prizes with some luck on the Wheel of Fortune.
We’re not sure how the designer team at IGT came up with this theme but we can say they did a great job. Wheel of Fortune On Tour has decent animations and graphic details, keeping the original vintage TV show look, while at the same time incorporates a fun and intense progressive, multilevel game play.
The overall game play concept is outstanding as Wheel of Fortune On Tour isn’t a game where you just spin the reels waiting for the scatters to land and trigger the bonus round. There’s much more to this game than that, since in order to unlock each extra bonus feature you need to keep spinning the reels and collecting bonus symbols.
In return each bonus symbol fills up one space on the tank meter until a total of 10 collected bonus symbols fill it all the way up and one level is unlocked on the Wheel of Fortune Tour bus. You will need to pass a total of 150 levels or collect a total of 1,500 bonus symbols in order to unlock all the features of the game.
This may sound like much but the long spinning session will be well worthwhile as the unlocked bonus features can award great payouts, even up to 2,500 x total bet in a single spin. If you are willing to go after a win like that make sure to prepare a decent bankroll, as the bet levels on Wheel of Fortune On Tour range from $0.50 to $500 per spin.
What We love
We love the overall game concept and the way the features are unlocked. The bonus symbols land on the reels very often increasing your progress through the levels and features fast.
We also like the fact that with each triggered bonus one extra level on the tour map is unlocked. It’s also great that there is a random base play feature, Wheelmobile Wilds, where 1-4 symbols are chosen to be transformed to Wilds.
But the best detail in this feature is that not 1-4 wilds are added on the reels, but all the spaces on the reels where the chosen symbols landed are turned wild.
This means that if the maximum 4 random symbols are chosen to be turned wild and they take up all the positions on the reels, you will get a full screen of wilds and a massive 2,500 x total bet payout.
What we Do not Like
Wheel of Fortune On Tour is a great game by IGT Software and we wouldn’t like to change any detail. It’s a great pokie game the way it is and another proof why IGT has a reputation of a great software provider.
Yes Wheel of Fortune On Tour is worth playing, especially for those players that like long sessions and progressive pokies. Even though there is no Jackpot attached, each unlocked level will bring you closer to unlocking the extra bonus features and a potentially big payout.
Wheel of Fortune On Tour is the perfect example what a pokie game should be like, fun to play and with the potential to pay big.
