That’s right, it’s 5 Reel Wheel of Chance, not Wheel of Fortune. This is a 5 reel slot part of WGS (Vegas Technology, Wager Gaming Technology) arsenal. Back in the days 5 reel slots were a rarity and this is one of the slots that still decorate the game libraries of a number of US oriented online casinos. It was difficult to find the game because you need to download it. It’s inconvenient, we admit, but this dated 5 reel slot comes with a decent prize potential. Then again, there are other, much more enticing options which are way better than the 5 Reel Wheel of Chance. However, the options of US players tend to be low and this is the only reason why 5 Reel Wheel of Chance still sees some play.
There are some things you should do before you start spinning those reels. As always, check out the dashboard and adjust the bet size to match your play style. First, you should set the number of lines that will be in play, anywhere from 1 to 20. You can do this by clicking on the number that point out each individual line. Now you can adjust the bet per active line. Thankfully, 5 Reel Wheel of Chance allows for the bet per line to be in range anywhere from 0.01 and 10.00. Try to be careful with the Bet Max button, it can eat away $200 from your cash balance. If that’s a winning spin, it will be a good start of an amazing play session, but if you lose, that will be the end of it.
5 Reel Wheel of Chance obviously looks outdated and cannot go in a full on competition with the latest generation video slots. The audio is of poor quality, but the graphics are decent at the very least. We don’t like the sound that plays when the spin’s a winning one. It’s too much noise. If the audio was a bit better, it’d be OK. Players enjoy the benefits of Wild, Scatter and a Bonus symbol. Each of them has its own clearly defined role.
In our experience, the wild just wasn’t there. The frequency was rather low. Landing 5 of these on the reels brings a prize of 8,000. Speaking of the wild, you can’t miss it! It’s this shiny bright diamond.
Scatters reward the player with 10 free spins, 3 or more scatters is what it takes to win those free rounds. The game is called Wheel of Chance, it’d be sad if there wasn’t an actual one. In order to spin the Wheel, you need to land 2 Bonus symbols, one on the 2nd and the other on the 4th reel. They have to be positioned on these two specific reels.
During free spins all wins are tripled and you can win additional free rounds. However, the additional free rounds are not tripled. Furthermore, all wins that include a wild symbol in the winning combination are doubled. This would’ve been very positive if the wilds were more frequent.
The bonus round, or the Wheel of Chance is an exciting element of 5 Reel Wheel of Chance, but the prizes are not as glamorous as they should be. You can win cash prizes only.
Winning in the base is one thing, but winning a big cash prize in the bonus round, thanks to the Wheel of Chance is way more exciting. When’s the wheel going to stop spinning? What am I going to win? Those are some of the questions that run in your head.
This slot specifically can’t get your attention if you’re into the latest and the most advanced video slots. However, if you’re from the US, we kindly recommend it due to the scarce game offer available to you.
