Wheel of Fortune: Elegant Emeralds Review
With a boatload of features and a branded name behind it, Wheel of Fortune: Elegant Emeralds has all the makings of a hit online slot. Following on from Wheel of Fortune: Power Wedges, this IGT slot keeps it a little simpler with 5-reels with 30 paylines.
During the gameplay, players will free spins, bonus wheels and the unique Ca$hLink 2 feature. This paired with a mighty big win of up to 8,333x stake makes Wheel of Fortune: Elegant Emeralds one not to be missed.
If you are coming into this slot expecting a stunning design, then you will be disappointed. The slot opens up with a green background that is completely static. It looks like a curtain of sorts but it is definitely an eyesore.
As for the symbols on the reels, players will find a variety of emerald jewels to fall in line with the fall which at least feels consistent. The images are quite tacky - but it goes well with the design.
One thing that is not lacking is the funky music throughout spins that feel like it could be from the game show. It's upbeat and lively to bring the slot to life...it's just a shame the visuals are horrendous.
Whilst the design may be incredibly outdated, the gameplay is certainly not. From free spins to bonus wheels, there is something for everyone. We were delighted to find all the features and that we didn't struggle to trigger something.
Like most IGT slots, the spin button and bet level buttons can be found at the bottom of the screen. At the top, there is a paytable followed by the game's rules where all the information on the slot can be found.
Wheel of Fortune: Elegant Emeralds is decent in terms of the win potential. With branded slots, there is always an expectation that the RTP and statistics will be low but that is not the case with this slot. Firstly, the RTP is 96.15% which is over the average standard and quite respectable.
Following this, the medium to high volatility slot has a maximum win of 8,333x the stake. This is nowhere near as crazy as Wheel of Fortune Megaways, but it's high enough to be enticing and it's more achievable.
The Wheel of Fortune slot series is not going to change the world - but it'll certainly entertain players. The gameplay is the biggest draw to this slot as there is always something going on and players will not struggle to find thrills throughout.
Whilst the design is gross and a little off-putting at times, it's worth pushing through for the gameplay and the potential wins. This is one branded slot not to be missed.
