Update 25/06/2015: You can play this new IGT slot over at Betfred mobile casino today
IGT will be releasing one of their biggest Wheel of Fortune slots on mobile and online on the 25th of June 2015. Here's what to expect.
This is going to be a long annoying article.
Not for you, for us.
The reason being that we’re going to have to write “Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spin mobile slot”, like, ten thousand times.
And you’re going to have to read it, because unfortunately, calling this just “The Wheel of Fortune slot” would be technically incorrect.
Reason being, International Gaming Technologies (IGT) have at least 29 Wheel of Fortune slot machines in it’s books. Twenty nine.
Online, this actually only translates to one; The Wheel of Fortune Hollywood Edition. And now two, as we get the Triple Extreme Spin version.
Keeping up so far?
If you can only vaguely recall the wheel of fortune TV game show, then good for you. Daytime TV hasn’t rotted your brain.
For the rest of us who grew up in the 70’s and 80’s, you’ll remember that this is basically Hangman for adults.

It’s been going on since 1975, and whilst many of us outside of the USA might not see the wide appeal, it’s kinda of a big deal.
The TV show ranks as the longest-running syndicated game show in the United States, with over 6,000 episodes aired. 2014 saw the release of it’s 39th series.
And if IGT is good at anything, it’s knowing when it has a winning concept and running away with it.
Hey, you try coming up with a new slot theme every month. It’s not cheating if people love it.
That’s the real question isn’t it?
Of all the Wheel of Fortune video slots in all the towns, in all the world… IGT walks in with Triple Extreme Spins.
This is the first Wheel of Fortune slot to be made mobile, and only the second online.
So it has to be a little bit special right?
To quote IGT directly: “The Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spin is the most popular game with MultiWay Xtra gameplay featuring the Wheel of Fortune® brand.”
Which actually doesn’t tell us much of anything. How many of these WoF machines have MultiWay Extra?
Look, we’re not going to lie to you. We haven’t gone in to check all the land based brick and mortar IGT Wheel of Fortune slots to check how many have MultiWa Extra pay.
But from our quick Google search (yeah, we Google shit too), we can tell you that we haven’t found any videos of any, including in the IGT official site.
Excellent question. They are 720 ways to win games that are diamond shaped.
They basically give you multipliers depending on not just how many slot symbols pay out left to right, but how many are stacked per reel.
Doesn’t that number look massively impressive?
That’s what IGT want you to think. But actually, if we take the two other multiway extra slots as examples, and make calculations based on their betting range, that’s actually…
Something between 2,432 to 2,919 times your overall spin bet. Depending on where they set their bet limits for this Wheel of Fortune mobile slot game.
Which is more correct, when you consider that on the likes of Esqueleto Explosivo you can win 1360 times your bet, or at the other end of the scale, Microgaming’s Fish Party has a 6,480 times your bet max prize.
So this IGT machine sits nicely in the middle.
The MultiWay Xtra slots have proven to work particularly well on mobile casinos and online.
What’s nice about the Triple Extreme (yeah, the title is getting shorter and shorter) is that it looks like it’s going to be a well balanced, but action packed affair.
So you won’t have to wait just for the free spins, or a stack of symbols, to win big.
And, of course, that top big win we mentioned above.
Most IGT casinos will release this game on the 25th of June 2015, but Mr Green casino tends to be the first one out. Plus you get 10 free spins just for signing up, so worth getting on their list, ready for this new game show affair.
