Wild Wheel has been created by Push Gaming and it’s a slot machine which includes the popular wheel of fortune style of feature inside, right along with a series of luxury related items.
Wild Wheel will give you 5 reels, spinning with a total of 20 active lines on them. There are prizes reaching top values of $3,000 in this game, while the features that are included bring you stacks of wild symbols, Nudging Wilds, bonus games and free spins.
Betting and Prizes
It’s the sort of game where you need to have 20 active lines at all times, and for that reason you need to spend a minimum of $0.20 per spin. You can go quite a bit higher from there, with the line bet reaching $5, while the total bet can end up at $100.
With a top prize of 600 coins being advertised, the jackpot of Wild Wheel can reach a value of $3,000. Though that value seems low, it’s worth keeping in mind that the RTP was announced for this game at 96.98%, which is an excellent number.
Wild Wheel Slot Features
The stacked wild symbol is one of the symbols capable of paying the big prize of the slot. It lands stacked with three symbols connected to each other. The game features something called Nudging Wilds, which basically guarantees you that you will have a full wild reel, as long as at least one wild from the stack is visible. The others will be nudged on the reel and you will get all three thanks to it.
Triggering the Wild Wheel bonus feature is a matter of getting all three middle reels occupied by a single block of wild symbols. During the resulting feature, the player will spin the Wheel and will get from it various prizes. He could get a cash prize, access to the free spins or an upgrade to the next wheel. The game lets you reject the result of the spin up to three times, so if it’s too low you can try and do better. The Wheel Upgrade will take you to a wheel which has bigger payouts and even more free spins to give you. A total of three wheels exist, so you can upgrade twice to better offers.
Once triggered, the free spins will start up if you accept them as your prize. There will be three reels that will show you identical symbols during each free spin. All you have to do is get the right symbols on the other two reels as well, and you will get some impressive rewards.
Theme & Design
The game looks like it is based on some kind of game show that you’d see on TV. There are images of a piggy bank, of a briefcase filled with cash, of gold bars, banknotes and coins, so basically anything that is connected to money, in one form or another. The playing cards are also present as low paying icons, and they’re not particularly interesting to watch.
Though I found the individual themed symbols to be of relatively high quality, I can’t say that I was very impressed with the overall design. It feels like a simpler slot machine, without too many details used even in the images that are of good quality. The playing cards obviously look even worse.
Wild Wheel has been designed as a game show type of slot machine, which even includes the right bonus features to match the theme. I enjoyed the high average RTP especially, so I can forgive the slot’s simpler design style.
