Wild Wheel Slot
Wild Wheel, Push Gaming’s last releases of 2017 is a 5x3 reel, 20 pay line slot with perhaps the simplest yet most honest theme of them all – cold, hard, cash.
Wild Wheel offers nudging wilds for bigger base game wins, and when triggered the ‘Wild Wheel’ takes you into the game’s bonus round where you spin for prizes. Wild Wheel is of medium variance with a healthy 96.98% RTP and can be played from as little €0.20 up to €100 per spin.
Design and Symbols
The best way to describe the design of Wild Wheels is ‘adequate’. In line with the theme of ‘winning money,’ the design is equally blunt and to the point. There is no ‘wow’ factor but also neither are the graphics and design sloppy or amateurish. In the background is a dark blue, almost night sky background with rows of flashing lights in ever decreasing circles with a large spinning wheel in the centre over which the game board is placed. The effect is akin to the studio set of some sort of ‘Wheel of Fortune’ type TV game show.
The symbols are again simple but are clear on a blue background, well designed, and in keeping with the game’s theme. The low-value symbols are the standard J, Q, K, and A, while the higher value symbols all pertain to the game’s ‘Big Money’ theme; a stack of coins, a bundle of notes, gold bars, a suitcase full of cash, a piggy bank. A golden safe is the highest value symbol with 5 on a pay line equating to 30x the bet size. Symbols appeared stacked on all reels. The other symbol is the wild which appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. The wild symbol is essentially one big symbol which covers the entire 3x3 centre section but is divided into 9 squares across the three wheels to form a large blue wheel with “WILD” written all around the circumference.
In the base game, there is a nudging wilds feature which can potentially bring bigger wins but this game is all about completing the 3x3 wild to not only book a big win in the base game but also to send you to the Wild Wheel bonus round.
If any part of a wild lands on a reel where an expanded wild would lead to a win then the wild will expand to cover all three squares of that reel, as will any other wilds on the board thus maximising the potential wins.
Wild Wheel Bonus Round
If all or part of the wild symbol lands on all three reels (2, 3 and 4) then they will automatically expand upwards or downwards to create the 3x3 mega wild. Not only should this bring in a hefty win (often much more than the subsequent feature will pay) but it also triggers the Wild Wheel bonus round where you will be given three spins of the prize reel
The Wild Wheel itself has three levels, each divided into segments which offer one of three potential rewards:
- Cash Win – awards the cash prize shown on the segment
- Wheel Upgrade – land on the arrow segment and you’ll move to a higher paying wheel
- Free Spins – awards the number of spins indicated on the segment. Chances of a big win are increased during free spins as on each new spin 3 random but adjacent reels will lock into place creating a 3x3 block with the same 3 symbols on each.
Interestingly you don’t get the chance to combine the total wins earned on all 3 spins, rather you have to choose whether to keep the win you’ve spun in or to forfeit this win an attempt to make a better win with your remaining spins.
Our Thoughts on Wild Wheel
Wild Wheel is a no-frills slot which is all about hitting the Wild Wheel and the potential big payday which comes with it. Personally, it’s not really interesting enough for me to enjoy for any significant length of time, but it’s simple and easy enough to pick up and enjoy a few spins, especially if you like the feature which isn’t the most difficult to trigger. This seems more of a ‘slot by numbers’ from Push Gaming just to increase their portfolio rather than one into which any serious amount of thought has been expended. Having said that there are certainly worse slots around and on balance Wild Wheel is decent if an unexciting addition to Push Gaming’s output.
