IGT has decided to join the bandwagon that has hot the gaming industry, and this is none other than the Megaways concept.
It’s a concept that is owned by BTG, and given its huge popularity, many developers have a purchased a licence from the owner to developer their own slot titles.
Wheel of Fortune Megaways is the name that IGT has given this slot, and I will share my findings of it in the review below:
Wheel of Fortune Megaways uses the usual 6 reels that are quite common with the Megaways titles.
The slot offers as many as 117,649 Megaways, which is the standard for most Megaways titles. However, it is possible to get as many as 1 million ways.
Its features are free spins, and Wild Megastacks among others.
Here, the betting range caters for all levels of players, and to place a wager, you will be allowed to use between $0.20, and 200 per spin.
The figure that you input will be used to cover all the existing Megaways.
Honestly, the payouts here do not impress me as much, and it’s a little on the lower side for a Megaways title.
IGT offers up to 4,000 per stake, but its fair RTP of 96.46%, helps in taming its high volatility.
Please note that the developer allows online casinos to lower the RTP. It means that this can differ from one casino to the other.
With a Megaways engine, you can expect to spin on 6 reels, with between 2 and 7 symbols on each.
The number of symbols is added randomly, and you end up with about 117,649 ways to win/Megaways.
Wilds will be here too, and as usual, they are the substitute features.
Wheel of Fortune Megaways has a very interesting random feature, known as Wild Megastacks.
It’s a feature that works by adding wilds to the positions on the reel. This ends up with 7 such symbols. While the free spins mode, the feature will transform the reels into wilds (10-symbols high).
To enjoy some free rounds, you need some scatters, and with between 3 and 6 such features, Wheel of Fortune Megaways will reward you with between 12 and 18 free games.
This is a branded title that is based on a popular TV game show. In the show, players are required to spin the Wheel of Fortune, and a prize will be revealed.
The slot’s background takes you to the centre of the action, where the show is filmed.
In addition to the low-value Royals (9 to A), other symbols include wilds (the assistant), gold rings, private jets, speedboats, as well as fast cars.
Wheel of Fortune Megaways is a well-designed slot title that has a few new ideas. It’s a fun slot, and especially for players who enjoy the Megaways mechanism.
However, its low payouts do not correspond with the high volatility. I can only recommend it to casual players.
