There’s a glossy, high spec feel to the design here. The reels look like the famous letter board from the TV show. There you’ll find A to J royal values as well as diamond rings, sports cars and luxury yachts. The best paying standard symbol is the private jet which will get you 7.5 times your stake if you land 5 on a payline. There’s also a wild that replaces everything bar the scatter and pays up to 30 times your stake.
Land 3, 4 or 5 of the Wheel of Fortune scatter and you’ll trigger the Wheel of Fortune Wheel feature where you get a spin of the Wheel (3 scatters), the Super Wheel (4 scatters) or the Ultra Wheel (5 scatters). Depending on where the pointer lands, you’ll win 1 of the following prizes:
- Mystery Transform feature - up to 6, 11 or 14 mystery symbols are placed on the reels. They then all transform into the same matching symbol and a new payout calculation is made.
- Wild Reel feature – 3, 4 or 5 reels could turn totally wild if you land this. 5 wild reels would reward you with a 600 times stake payout.
- Respins feature - you’ll receive 3, 4 or 5 respins. The scatters from the triggering spin turn into sticky wilds. Any other wilds that land here also turn sticky for any respins you have left.
- Multiplier feature - if the pointer lands on a number, your total stake is multiplier by this amount – it can reach up to 250 times your stake in the Ultra Wheel.
The last option is the MegaJackpots Bonus feature - trigger this and you’ll get 1 spin of the MegaJackpots Bonus Wheel. This contains 24 wedges that offer cash prizes or an envelope that awards the jackpot prize. Depending on whether you trigger the round with 3, 4 or 5 scatters, you’ll see 1, 2 or 3 jackpot envelopes spinning around the reels meaning 1, 2 or 3 chances!
We’ve not always been fans of IGT’s gameshow slot games founding them rather convoluted. This one is much simpler and far more user friendly. The crisp visuals are nicely done and the clicking of the wheel and the applause of the audience could come straight from the show.
It’s not the most volatile game you’ll see - in fact, the variance is in the low to medium range. The features come along pretty regularly which keeps things moving. The big attraction here of course is the potential progressive jackpot prize. If you enjoy jackpot slot games, then MegaJackpots Wheel of Fortune On Air is well worth a view. I also suggest you try MegaJackpots Star Lanterns which shares the same progressive prize.
