What does the Wheel of Fortune brand have to do with Hawaii? Well, for one, there’s this Wheel of Fortune Hawaiian Getaway slot which brings the exotic to the big wheel game.
Honestly, there are so many Wheel of Fortune slots by the game studios IGT, we don’t know how they keep coming up with the new themes.
At least the Wheel of Fortune on Tour slot had some history on the original game show, but we couldn’t find any particular connection other than Hawaii is in the USA?
This is a sunny Summer slot that has more to do with Hawaii than Wheel of Fortune. In fact, with its 1950s postcards, pretty flowers and palm trees, you could pretend this isn’t a Wheel of Fortune casino game and be fine.
Other than the gentle surf of Waikiki, it’s the Big Kahuna Respin feature that will either keep you spinning or make you walk away quickly.
Mostly because it’s one of the only ways to catch some decent wins in the base game in this slot game.
What happens is that any 3 reels that are fully covered by the same symbols will give you a massive symbol and a further re-spin with a random multiplier.
If you can get another reel of symbols, you get another re-spin, till you can get that jumbo symbol to take over the whole 5 reels and 3 rows, giving you multiple 5 of a kind wins over all 25 paylines.
Add a good multiplier of 3x or 5x and you could be heading to Hawaii yourself for a getaway at the end of the round. Certainly more likely than if spinning on Aloha Cluster Pays slot by NetEnt .
Much like the steaming lava fields of Mauna Loa, you can appreciate the splendours within this tropical paradise, and yet still feel like you’ve been burnt.
And that’s because whilst the jumbo symbol and re-spin can pay out big, it’s frustrating how hard it is to get the actual Wheel of Fortune bonus.
To be honest, when you do catch it, it’s hard not to be disappointed because mostly you get maybe a little cash prize and nothing more – unlike Wheel of Fortune Ultra 5 Reels game.
Of course, the point is to try and get the jackpot and 1,000 times your bet. But you don’t. You rarely even get the free spins, which is just a nice break on your wallet, as it’s 10 spins with nothing else added.
Do we recommend you play the Wheel of Fortune Hawaiian Getaway mobile slot? For the Big Kahuna Respin feature and the cool nostalgic feel, absolutely. But we wouldn’t spend the whole evening here.

The Wild: The wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the Wheel Bonus Scatter. It Only appears on reels 2, 3 ,4 or 5.
Big Kahuna Respin Feature: This is triggered when you get three or more adjacent full stacks of the same high paying symbols. (Surf, Hula, Tiki, Aloha, Lava)
When this happens, you get the 3 of a kind win, but then you get a re-spin, with that symbols now becoming a mega 3x3 symbol, and you get a random multiplier of 2x, 3x, 4x, or 5x.
You then either get a second win, or if you get another full stack of symbols on another reel, you get 4 of a kind wins over 25 paylines, but then another multipler and re-spin, until you can get a full screen with a mega symbol that is 5 reels and 3 symbols high.
The Wheel Bonus: This is triggered when six or more bonus scatters symbols appear anywhere on the reels during the base game.
You then spin a wheel of fortune with prizes consisting of:
We were torn about what rating to give this Wheel of Fortune Hawaiian Getaway slot on mobile.
On one hand, the wheel bonus isn't very interesting, and neither are the free spins, or (to be honest) does the theme work with the game show brand. This could literally be any exotic location casino game.
And yet, it's a beautiful Hawaii slot game, with a gorgeous design that really works, making you feel like you are in a nostalgic era when honeymooning to this Pacific Island was the height of luxury.
Add those Big Kahuna respin and the big jumbo mega symbols, and we had a whole load of fun, mostly because IGT doesn't rely on cheap features to give you cheap wins. When the wins come, they tend to be worth your while.
You know what, it might even our favourite of the Wheel of Fortune games, including Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spin slot.
Or you can play Wheel of Fortune Hawaiian Getaway at one of these mobile casinos:
