IGT have a number of different machines based upon hit game show Wheel of Fortune, the Ultra version of these games is regarded as one of the best slot machines they have ever produced.
As you can probably guess from the name, the Wheel of Fortune Ultra 5 Reels slot machine is based upon the game show, Wheel of Fortune (yep, that show hosted by everybody from Nicky Campbell to John Leslie).
There are five reels on this slot machine with 30 different paylines. The minimum cost per spin is 50p with the maximum cost per spin being £500. It is a very simple slot machine to play, and we will cover some of the features that it boasts in a short while.
One of the things that we really loved about this particular machine was the visuals. They just pop out. The game is one of the more beautiful we have seen, without going overboard on the theming. Sure, there are some games out there which really push the theme and have beautiful artwork, but we find that many, many of these machines are just difficult to understand.
There are images all over the place, and they tend to blend in with one another. This can make it tricky to understand what is going on. Wheel of Fortune Ultra 5 Reels likes to keep things simple.
The slot machine has simple to understand images too. Just about everything that appears on your standard fruit machine is going to appear here, and it is going to be easy to know what you have too. This means ‘Wilds’, ‘7’, various fruits, and a couple of extra symbols which can boost winnings or trigger certain features.
All in all, the Wheel of Fortune Ultra slot is going to be simple to understand. You just set your bet, press that spin button, and you should be good to go.
There are a couple of features on the Wheel of Fortune Ultra 5 Reels slot machine that you really should know about. Thankfully, each of these should be fairly simple to understand, even if you are fairly new to the world of slot machines:
Wild Multiplier: This occurs when the wild becomes part of a winning combination on the reels. The wild can turn into a 2x, 3x, 4x, or 5x multiplier. This means a significant boost in your winnings. The best part? The values of the multipliers are added together. This means a maximum of 25x bonus!
Scatter Wheels: When you get three or more scatters on the reels, they will transform to a wheel and spin. Each will give a cash prize. Very much like the real Wheel of Fortune game!
The Ultra Wheel bonus: is going to be a touch more difficult to understand. This occurs when you get three or more Ultra Wheel symbols on either reels 2,3 and 4. The bonus reels will then be spun which will determine which ‘Ultra Wheels’ remain active and multiply your winnings. The second reel being active can give you a winning of between 3 and 50 times your stake, the third between 2 and 10, and the first between 6 and 200. This means you can, theoretically, win back 2,000 times your initial stake!
As with most other IGT games out there, the Wheel of Fortune Ultra 5 Reels slot machine also boasts a mobile option. Now, as with most other IGT games, this has been very well-designed. Yes, the 3D effect on the wheels is actually fairly intensive on a graphical level.
However, the game runs ridiculously well on just about every mobile device out there. This means that playing the game on the go should be a breeze. It is just as enjoyable on a mobile device as it is, sitting in the comfort of your own home and playing it on a computer. This is the type of thing that we love to see on mobile slot machines.
If you are looking for a well-themed game which does not go overboard in terms of imagery, which ensures that everything remains easy to understand at all times, then we seriously do suggest that you check out the Wheel of Fortune Ultra 5 Reels slot machine.
It has just enough features to keep the most avid of slot machine enthusiasts interested, but they are simple enough to ensure that somebody new to the world of slot machines will be able to have a fair go at the game.
All in all, this is going to provide you with a delightful playing experience!
