A traditional theme park is the colourful location for this online slot from Playtech; it’s called Fortune Wheel and it takes us on a journey involving Ghost Trains, Carousels and Big Wheels. There’s a very in-depth bonus feature but the icing on the cake is three progressive jackpot – win one of those and your day will take a turn for the better.
Fortune Wheel is a five reel slot with three rows and up to twenty paylines; through the transparent reels there’s a landscape view of a fairground at night with lights gleaming from the rollercoaster track and the cars of the Big Wheel.
There are four high value symbols comprising a dodgem car, Carousel horses, the spiral slide and the Ghost Train; J, Q, K and A represent the lower values.
The Big Wheel acts as both the wild and scatter symbol and is also the key to the feature.
Lucky 5 Spin
If you land four of a kind in the base game there’s chance that the fifth wheel will spin again, offering the chance of five of a kind.
Fortune Wheel Bonus Game
This is where all the action is and it’s triggered by landing three or more of the Big Wheels anywhere in view. This starts the Wheel Of Fortune game from which all other features begin.
Kick things off by spinning the wheel and collecting prizes until you land on the ‘Stop’ position. Before reaching ‘Stop’ you may collect free spins which can be played at the end of the bonus. It’s also possible to trigger mini-games and the progressive jackpot if you land on the appropriate segment:
- Dodgems & Waltzers – pick a dodgem car for a multiplier and a waltzer for the prize; choose the same colours to double the total.
- Roll The Dice – roll the dice to collect multipliers until you land a seven, at which point the prize is determined and the round ends.
- Road Bonus – keep spinning the multiplier wheel and moving along the road until you hit ‘X’; your collected multipliers will be multiplied by the total bet.
- Test Of Strength – use the strength machine to earn a multiplier value; gamble this up to ten times to increase it but losing the gamble ends the round.
- The Wheel – spin the wheel for a prize.
The progressive jackpots are won by landing on a mini-game segment at the higher value; spin the wheel again for a shot at the big bucks.
