Wheel of Fortune is perhaps one of the greatest American game shows. Spanning out trough 38 seasons, the thrilling game show is now reinvented in a form of a video slot and who else to do it than Big Time Gaming. This is not the first time when the Australian based studio has come up with a slot, that’s inspired by a popular game show, good examples being the Survivor Megaways and Millionaire Megaways. Now we can add Wheel of Fortune Megaways to the collection.
Wheel of Fortune Megaways is a slot that comes with some crazy numbers. Wheel of Fortune has always glorified the wealth, so it fits in the casino world quite perfectly. Wheel of Fortune Megaways won’t require you to do puzzles, instead, you just have to spin and hope for the best outcome. Speaking of the best outcome, you can land an 80,150x win on a single spin, so it literally takes a couple of seconds for you to become a millionaire. Wheel of Fortune theme has been previously explored by IGT, so it will be interesting to see how does the new Wheel of Fortune Megaways version by BTG compares.

Wheel of Fortune Megaways Slot Review
Gameplay and Payouts
Wheel of Fortune Megaways definitely has that classical BTG feel to it, especially with all the quirky audio clips. The game layout is located in the game show studio, where dimly lit neon lights decorate the scene. Wheel of Fortune comes with the Megaways mechanism which is their most used and most popular mechanism. Megaways is not messing around this time, as the payline amount can reach up to 1 million ways to win. The whole expanding reel idea is not an original one, we’ve seen plenty of games using this option before, but still, Wheel of Fortune Megaways feels like a new and satisfying experience.
Usually, we wouldn’t bicker about such things, but as it is such a big online slot provider we have to point out that the quality of symbols is sub-par. We don’t want to look for excuses, but this is mostly the case with these big reel slots, where the quality is in the second plan, but still, we would have liked something more special than just regular 9-A. Besides these, the Wheel of Fortune Megaways high paying symbols are golden sports cars, speedboats, diamond rings and private jets. We also have the wild symbols, but they don’t come with a unique look.
First things first, you have to decide how large your initial bet will bet. Wheel of Fortune Megaways offers a wide range of betting options, starting from 0.20 and ending with 500. As accustomed to BTG Megaways slots the volatility is high, certifying the high-risk high reward scenario. BTG has also always kept their math model fair and balanced, that’s why the RTP is a good 96.46%. Of course, all eyes are on the max win, which for Wheel of Fortune Megaways is a tremendous 80,150x payout. It almost seems like, with each BTG’s release, we are waiting for how far the max payout is going to be pushed and once again, we are not disappointed.
During the Wheel of Fortune Megaways main game as well as the bonus game, you will stumble upon Wild Megastacks. These essentially are full reel wilds which can stack 7 wild symbols high during the main game and double reel 10 wilds high during Free Spins.
For Free Spins, you need to collect at least 3 scatters, which are styled as the Wheel of Fortune logos. The reward is 12, 14, 16 or 18 Free Spins for 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters respectively. This is also the moment where the actual function of the wheel comes in play. Before the Free Spins begin you get a single wheel spin which determinates how many Megaways you will have at the start of the bonus game. The expansion symbol adds two symbols, which then increases the Megaways amount. Once you max out a single reel 10 symbols high, Wheel of Fortune awards you extra 12 free spins.
Game show slots aren’t a whole new thing in the casino world, but still, every new release brings a lot of excitement. Wheel of Fortune Megaways perhaps is a bit tamer than the actual counterpart as it is not as flashy as the TV version. The Free Spins phase is what hides all the good stuff, as this bonus can go absolutely bonkers in those moments when you unlock additional playing space. If you’re here for that iconic tv show feel, then you might feel a bit disappointed as Big Time Gaming have put their own touch to Wheel of Fortune Megaways. But if that doesn’t concern you then Wheel of Fortune Megaways is a great slot which comes with a very good game model.
