Big Time Gaming and IGT Come Together for Wheel of Fortune MegaWays Release
Wheel of Fortune, not to be confused with NetEnt’s one, is the latest addition in Big Time Gaming’s portfolio of branded MegaWays slots. Better yet, it was made in cooperation with IGT, making this release their first one yet! Published on 25 February, this hotly anticipated slot game is based on the popular American game show from the 70s, including the star hostess Vanna White who from time to time appears in the game as well. Wheel of Fortune Megaways offers a staggering, up to 1 million ways to win thanks to the trademarked Extending Reels feature and Wild Megastacks, and more than 80,000x in possible winnings, marking a Big Time Gaming record.
Wheel of Fortune MegaWays plays with BTG’s signature 117,649 ways to win in the base game. There are no extra reels spinning below or above the reels, but there are big moments to be had in the base game too. In addition to regular Wilds, the developer has for the first time introduced Wild Megastacks. This is a random feature that can expand any Wild symbol up to 7 high and do that to up to three Wilds in a single spin! That means half of the reels in view can turn wild out of the blue.
The Extending Reels are reserved for the Free Spins bonus exclusively. It’s a feature that has previously appeared only in BTG’s White Rabbit MegaWays slot that came out back in 2017. To experience them firsthand, you need 3 or more Scatters that will award 12-18 Free Spins. This commences one of the most exciting features in this online slot game – the actual wheel of fortune that will reveal the starting MegaWays, from 14,000 to 117,649.
The starting MegaWays can slowly expand up to 1 million ways to win as the reels grow thanks to the Extending Reels feature. What it does is splits each special Expansion Symbol into two, every time it appears on the screen. Each reel can grow up to 10 symbols high and when that happens, the Free Spins will be retriggered. Upon retrigger, another wheel will appear to be spun which will reveal up to 12 extra spins.
The icing of the cake is yet another twist to the expanding reels and the bonus spins. Similarly to the Queen’s Reel in White Rabbit, each time you extend a reel to the maximum of 10 symbols in the Free Spins, an additional reward will be given. In this case, any Wild symbol on that reel may transform into a Wild Megastack of 10 Wilds! In fact, up to two Wild Megastacks can appear per free spin, resulting in an immense win potential that is likely to generate a prize anywhere up to 80,000x bet.
So, if you like extreme volatilities and have the patience that is needed to see the Wheel of Fortune Free Spins with your own eyes, then this new game is capable of offering BTG’s biggest payouts yet, at a very decent RTP of 96.46%. See our Big Time Gaming casinos to find your spot.
