Wheel of Chance 3 Reel Slots
Wheel of Chance is a three-reel, single-payline slot from WGS. As the name implies, this slot is based on the long-running game show Wheel of Fortune.
A three-reel game based on the popular game show doesn't sound original. But we found the Wheel of Chance bonus to be quite detailed for a simple slot. Keep reading as we cover the bonus round and everything else that this game offers.
Graphics and Atmosphere
Wheel of Chance is a classic slot with some flair. You'll see a large, multi-colored wheel in the background that really sets the game-show feeling.
The classic slot element can be seen in the betting options and reels. These are crafted to make it feel as if you're playing slots in Atlantic City or Vegas. The sound effects, which remind one of older slot machines, also scream classic.
Symbols include a diamond, 7, triple BAR, double BAR, and cherry. The diamond is the highest-paying symbol at 2,400 coins when three coins are bet. It also serves as the wild icon, substituting for any other symbol to form wins.
Forming a win with one diamond involved offers a 2x multiplier. Getting a payout with two diamonds delivers a 4x multiplier.
Graphics for the symbols and background aren't anything special. But they're good enough to clearly indicate what's presented in the background and on the reels.
Format and Betting
Betting options include the ability to change your coin size and how many credits you bet on each spin. Coin size can be changed from $0.01 to $10. This is an extremely wide range for a classic game.
You can wager anywhere from 1-3 credits per spin. You don't get any advantage in terms of payouts with regard to how many coins are wagered. Everything increases proportionally with each extra coin. For example, the diamond pays 800 coins (1 credit), 1,600 (2 credits), and 2,400 (3 credits).
However, wagering three coins is the only way to trigger the bonus. Therefore, we suggest that you risk three credits.
Wheel of Chance Special Features - Spin the Wheel for Big Payouts
The bonus symbol is the multi-colored wheel icon (a.k.a. the Wheel of Chance). Landing three wheels in the payline triggers the bonus.
This bonus takes you to a new screen, where you'll be able to spin the Wheel of Chance for prizes. The top prize is worth 1,000x your bet.
The start of the bonus calls on you to select "spin" to get the wheel going. It will automatically stop on one of the spaces, and you have the choice to either collect your prize or spin again.
The catch is that the current prize is removed from the wheel and replaced with an empty space. Landing on an empty space ends the feature. This means that you want to be careful when deciding to chase bigger prizes.
Final Thoughts on Wheel of Chance Slots
Wheel of Chance won't blow you away in terms of its graphics or theme. But it's a fun slot for those who like simple games. Players will also appreciate how they can unlock a detailed bonus round.
If you like Wheel of Chance, we suggest playing at least until you unlock the bonus round. We actually triggered it twice and had fun playing both times.
Of course, anybody who likes the Wheel of Fortune game show will appreciate this slot too. That said, we recommend giving Wheel of Chance a try.
