Wheel of Fortune: Hollywood Edition

“Wheel. Of. FORTUNE!” Those classic words head up one of the most iconic game shows of all time. When the crowd begins roaring those words, you know it is time for the show to begin. I love Wheel of Fortune, and have been watching the show since I was a child, and still watch the game almost every night.

International Game Technology (or IGT for short) has made Wheel of Fortune styled pokies for years, and the game has proven to be one of its most popular land casino products. It was only natural that this game was eventually going to be set up to make its way to the Internet, and take the cyber-betting world by storm.

Does Wheel of Fortune: Hollywood Edition live up to the high standard that its land based cousins set, or is this the ugly step-sister that needs to just stay hidden? Read on to find out.

Graphics and Animations: Simple, But Charming

Wheel of Fortune: Hollywood Edition is a bit of a simple looking game by today’s standards. I would say that the game looks like it belongs more in the early 2000’s than 2013, with symbols that aren’t really clean or greatly designed. I really expected more from Wheel of Fortune in this department, and was a bit disappointed by what I saw.

The animations here are slightly better, but still nothing to write home about. The pokie plays very quickly, and there were no problems with lagging at all. I really liked the way the symbols popped when they trigger a win, but the lack of polish is evident and the game looks way older than it likely is.

Gameplay

Gameplay with Wheel of Fortune: Holiday Edition is the big redeeming factor here. The game is simply fun, and I racked up some huge wins playing this game. The speed of the game is awesome, and the 5 paylines pay off with a surprising frequency.

I ended up hitting the Wheel bonus round, which is a staple in land casinos. The game lets you spin the wheel and accumulate wins with each wedge. When you do get a hit, you have the choice to collect or keep spinning (with added bankruptcy symbols added). I ended up spinning a lot and taking some big wins, but hit bankruptcy once when I got too greedy. Situations like this are what make the game so great to me; I always criticize players on TV for spinning too much, but am always tempted to do so when its my cash on the line.

This is a great factor, and I really love it.

Summary

Overall, I think Wheel of Fortune: Hollywood Edition is a good pokie that looks a bit dated but plays very well. The pokie is simple by payline standards, but plays so well that I can’t help but love it. The game’s Wheel bonus feature is one of my favorite pokie bonus rounds of all time, and I found it to be a particular thrill when I kept racking up wins as bankruptcy symbols kept populating the wheel.

If you are a fan of the television show or like the land casino version of Wheel of Fortune, I think that you should definitely check out Wheel of Fortune: Hollywood Edition. You will likely have a lot of fun, and be able to tell a tale about how you went up against the wheel.

You will love it.
