IGT has had great success with their Wheel of Fortune slots series. And Wheel of Fortune on Tour is yet another successful slot based on the gameshow that’s been running on TV for four decades.
The twist in this game is that Wheel of Fortune has taken its show on the road for a cross-country tour of America. Let’s discuss if the theme adds anything special to the Wheel of Fortune franchise along with this game’s atmosphere, symbols, features, and return to player (RTP).
The theme is based around a giant Wheel of Fortune Tour bus that drives to major cities in the U.S. That said, the background features the inside of a bus, and the reels are supposed to be what you see through the window.
We can’t say that the idea of a Wheel of Fortune tour bus will appeal to everybody. After all, not everybody knows that the “Wheelmobile” visits different spots around the country to find contestants. But IGT had to put another new twist on a franchise that they’ve created several games for.
Some of the symbols that you’ll see while playing include car keys, the Hollywood sign, Mount Rushmore, Route 66 sign, Statue of Liberty, the Alamo, and the Wheel of Fortune icon.
This game features 5 reels and 30 paylines, with the 30 paylines being fixed. But you can adjust your total bet from £/€0.50 to £/€2500.00 per spin.
Wheel of Fortune on Tour features an interesting bonus system called Level Up Plus, where you unlock more features as you continue playing. This is tracked by a map of America that has 150 locations on it. Every time that you get a Winnebago icon on the reels, you’ll push the fuel gauge one point higher. Once you get 10 points, you move to a new destination on the map.
Some of the different features that you can unlock as you move through the different locations include free spins, multipliers, and a Bonus Boost. The Bonus Boost lets you trigger a feature with one scatter symbol, instead of three.
And in case you’re wondering, Wheel of Fortune on Tour saves your spot on the map even when you exit the game.
RTP for Wheel of Fortune on Tour ranges from 92.5% to 96.6%, depending upon the casino you’re playing at. This means that you’re either going to get good payback or below average.
No matter the case, Wheel of Fortune on Tour is worth trying thanks to the unique theme that it brings to the table. We also really like the map system that sees you advance across America and pick up new bonuses long the way. Our only issue is the £/€0.50 minimum bet, which won’t appease every low roller.
