The wombat says: It’s the follow-up time again Wombat fans, and now it’s the turn of Microgaming’s 3-reel Wheel of Wealth to get the makeover treatment! Yup, those lovely people behind the White Buffalo slot have come out with this new and improved version which has 2 extra reels plus a whole host of updated extra features.
Look and Feel
It’s a glitzy-looking game with a whole load of brash bright colours on offer while the soundtrack to Wheel of Wealth slot is designed to immerse you into a real casino arcade with the noise of fruities pinging in the background. Despite it’s classic feel when compared to newer games like Wish Upon a Jackpot, it still gives off quite a buzz.
Wheel of Wealth Special Edition has 5 reels with 3 rows and a rather generous 25 pay-lines. Compare that to the What on Earth Slot with nine and you’ll understand why this is a low variance slot- expect more frequent pay-outs of a more modest size.
Your symbols include all the traditional slot machine symbols; succulent cherries, crisp apples, juicy watermelons, tasty grapes, luscious limes, mouthwatering oranges, and gold bars that are all displayed in glorious technicolour detail. These are joined on the reels wads of cash, flashy sports cars, bling bling diamonds, and what looks like private jets (all of which could be yours in you are lucky enough to scoop the jackpot that’s on offer).
The highest paying symbols in the game are the Wheel of Wealth Special Edition logo that will dish out 10x, 10x, 1,000x or a whopping 10,000x your bet for x2, x3, x4, or x5 of a kind. The multicoloured Wheel of Wealth Special Edition logo also makes up the Wild symbol in this game and it will do the usual job of substituting for all other symbols on the reels ti help you make more winning combos. It can replace any other icon except for the Bonus and Scatter symbols and will add a nice little 2x multiplier on any wins it contributes to. Hurrah!
The Gold Coin is the game’s Scatter symbol, land 3x of these anywhere on the reels and you will pick up and instant cash win that’s multiplied by the total bet.
Keep your eyes peeled for the Bonus symbol (that’s got a big ‘Bonus’ symbol emblazoned on it). Landing 3x or more of these will trigger off the Reel Bonus game – which really will out a smile on your face as you’ll also pick up a multiplier of 3x or 4x your wager respectively.
But here’s the best bit: if you land 5x of these beauties on any active pay-line you will set off the Spin the Wheel bonus. When this happens, the you’ll be taken to a second screen where the Wheel of Fortune will pop up. This assault on the eyes is made up of different coloured sections and each one has a different value on it. These range from 20 up to 1,000 coins, but the jackpot in this round is an outstanding 100,000 coins. Whoop whoop!
Old skool slot fans will heartily approve of Wheel of Wealth Special Edition slot. The base game pays out frequently thanks to the Wild Multiplier but the generous bonus feature is where you’ll really make the moolah. It might not be the nicest looking game, but the game play more than makes up for it.
