Wheel of Wealth Special Edition doesn’t look like much, but it is actually one of Microgaming’s most successful video slots to date. The original game (find it here) was actually a three-reel classic slot with some fun features and a similar game theme. This five reel slot follows in its predecessor’s footsteps, and it is arguably even better than the original. Despite its popularity, the original game did not have very detailed artwork, and it got by on its superior gameplay alone.
This special edition has polished artwork and a more glitzy appearance than its predecessor. Also, the color scheme is primarily black and gold. Though it lacks the complete suite of features that you might expect from one of Microgaming’s five-reel games, Wheel of Wealth Special Edition has an easy-to-play bonus game and has a bet-to-payout ratio far higher than most non-progressive games. If you think that you have what it takes to crack this game, then start spinning.
There are generally two classes of five-reel slots that Microgaming designs. Both typically have a maximum bet of 250 coins regardless of the cash limit. Half of the games use 50-cent coins, and the other half use $1 coins. Wheel of Wealth Special Edition uses 50-cent coins. Interestingly enough, however, the top jackpot is $50,000 for a bet of $125. Microgaming’s slots that use $1 coins often have jackpots in the $30,000 to $60,000 range. Simply put, you get more bang for your buck when you play this slot.
The bonus game for which Wheel of Wealth is named is quite simple. Rather than getting free spins, you get to choose from awards that can pay you more than 1,000 coins each time. This feature is activated when you get five special icons on your reels at the same time. The bonus pops up with a lesser frequency than in the three-reel game, but it happens enough that it adds to your effective win rate significantly.
