Multinational gambling company International Game Technology (IGT) has announced a new online slot game launch. After partnering with Big Time Gaming, the two companies have created an iconic Wheel of Fortune online slot game. Title Wheel of Fortune Megaways, this game features the Megaways mechanic of Big Time Gaming to create a quality online and mobile release for players to enjoy. The game is offered via IGT’s PlayDigital platform.
Get to Know Wheel of Fortune Megaways
When you load the game, you are taken straight onto a starry stage where you will find an unusual grid configuration. There are small, medium, and large symbols on the grid. You will find the usual royal symbols along with diamond rings, a gold jet, boat, and fancy car.
The Wheel of Fortune logo is the scatter in the game. When you spin and locate three, four, five, or six scatters on the board, you earn 12, 14, 16, or 18 extra spins. There is also a golden wild. This symbol will substitute for all icons in the game except for the scatter and the expansion symbol. Wilds will only appear on the 2nd and 5th reels.
In the extra spins round, you will spin the game reel to reveal the starting Megaways. Up to 117,649 Megways can be earned in the game. Once the Megaways number is revealed, the extra spins will begin.
Every wild that shows up in the game has the chance to turn into a Wild Megastack, which includes seven wilds total. In the base spin, up to three Wild Megastacks can appear on the reels.
As if that were not enough, the Big Time Gaming release also includes Extending Reels. When an Expansion Symbol appears in the game, it will be replaced by two new symbols. This increases the number of symbols on the reel by one. The reels can extend up to 10 symbols each.
On top of that, there is an extra spin retrigger. When a reel ends up with 10 maximum symbols, the extra spins round is retriggered. Spin the wheel again to see how many spins you earn, with up to 12 on offer!
When the reel is retriggered, a Wild can turn into a Wild Megastack, which consists of 10 wilds. As many as two Wild Megastacks can appear when you complete an extra spin!
Launching the New Game
The new slot first launched in New Jersey and was highly successful, setting new performance records. Just a few days ago, the game was launched in Europe, throughout approved jurisdictions. There are plans to launch the game in other areas around the world throughout the year.
BetMGM was one of the first online casino sites in the Garden State to offer the new title. It has quickly become one of the more popular slots at the site. BetMGM VP Of Gaming, Matthew Sunderland, commented that since the game has been added to the site, ‘it has catapulted to the top of the performance charts.’
The new slot is now part of the IGT PlayDigital library, offering over 140 games via the PlayCasino.
