Our Verdict on Wheel of Fortune Megaways
As a slot game based on a popular Television show, the expectations were set high. Although the design and graphics are of good quality, I can't help feeling there are several aspects that were missed out from this slot.
Of course, it was great to see the Wheel itself was included in the slot, however Big Time Gaming could have come up with a way of creating the game to be more thrilling like the show itself.
Despite that, the megaways slot does offer plenty of potential and keeps you on your toes while playing. Offering players a chance to win up to 80,150x their stakes placed, is also an enticing factor to this online slot.
