Update 28/05/2016: You can now play this brand new game at Mr Green mobile casino or read our Wheel of Fortune Ultra 5 Reels slot review for more details.
IGT have announced that on the 26th of May 2016 they will release their famous Wheel of Fortune Ultra 5 Reels Slot at mobile and online casinos. Here's everything you need to know.
The nice thing about new IGT slots is that we actually know a whole load about them before they are released.
That’s because most of their new mobile slots are either casino games that already exists online, or much like Wheel of Fortune Ultra 5 Reels, slot machines from the casinos of Las Vegas and Maccau.
The good news is that there is lots to say about a big branded game, like a Wheel of Fortune slot.
The bad news is that we’ve actually not played this version before, so we are discovering everything at the same time you are.
The easiest thing to do first is to show you a quick 1 minute video of what you can expect from the game.
IGT have several Wheel of Fortune games, the only one we have to play online, Android, or iPhone is the Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spin slot.
Which, if we are honest, isn’t a bad game, but it wasn’t a standout either.
Get 200% on your first deposit + 3 reloads at Leo Vegas Casino and play all night long.
All in all, that’s a lot of different numbers there, but one thing very obviously missing… no free spins.
Will that make a difference?
Only a couple of days ago we wrote about how NetEnt’s upcoming Theme Park: Tickets Of Fortune slot, whilst very pretty to look at, also won’t be having any free spins to speak of.
Which, considering it’s one of our favourite features, was a little worrying.
That said, we might not actually miss the Wheel of Fortune bonus game, as this IGT gem hides a little something that NetEnt doesn’t have.
That’s what it says on the tin. 10,000x multipliers. That’s a big number.
Get 20 free spins when you register at Casumo casino + 180 free spins after your first deposit.
How that will translate on the small screen is a little unknown to us, but we are guessing this is a ‘line bet’ number, not a ‘your overall bet’ number.
What’s the difference we hear the beginners at the back shouting?
Well, here at LuckyMobileSlots.com, when we write any mobile phone slot reviews, we tend to talk about how much we’ve won when we hit features.
Only we talk about ’20 times our bet’. So that’s how much it costs to take one spin. Because we are gamblers, and ultimately, we know that what counts is how much you have left at the end of your game play.
Casino games software, however, sometimes use ‘how much you can win per line’ as a way to make the numbers more impressive.
Again, hard to say without looking at the paytable – because even the line bet win can be dependent on the symbols that trigger it.
But say this Wheel of Fortune Ultra 5 Reel slot feature is a normal instant cash bonus game.
And say you are betting 0.01 a line. If you multiply that by 10,000, you get a 100 cash win. Now at 0.01, your spin bet is 0.30. Which would make the top win here about… 333 times your overall bet.
Doesn’t sound quite as impressive right?
Still, we doubt any of your would be too disappointed with that sum of money.
Honestly? We are a little more excited than the vaguely generic Theme Park slot NetEntertainment have decided to release.
So that’s always a good sign.
Mostly it’s because we like the look of the machine.
With it’s retro rolling columns, much like in the Neon Reels slot, it feels like it will be a good fit on Android and iPhone screens.
Add the fact that it’s an IGT branded game, and we suspect that they wouldn’t release this at online and mobile casinos unless it had already tested well with audiences worldwide.
Basically, they know there are already many eager players ready to spin this Wheel of Fortune game the moment it’s out. And that many people can’t be wrong, right?
There’s plenty of good IGT casinos on mobile to play at, so choice isn’t really a problem.
Our top three?
All excellent choices, each with IGT mobile slot games and so much more on top.
Why do we favourite Casumo at the moment? Because we know for a fact that they are adding something very special to their already quirky platform come Friday.
What is it? You’ll have to get your 20 free spins no deposit to find out. Or come back here Thursday when we will tell you all about it.
It’s more fun this way, isn’t it?Start Playing at Casumo »
