World of Wonker Review
I stuck at it for quite some time and while I did see the Oompa Loompa Feature trigger regularly, I could only access the Wheel of Fortune once. Obviously, this could just be that I had a bad run of spins but it did seem to tease me for an awfully long time. In the end, I was awarded a simple 12x payout so I didn't get to see the Chocolate River or the Free Spins Bonus come my way. That said, I did grab hold of the obligatory Wonka chocolate bar; however, I wasn't the lucky recipient of a Golden Ticket.
Everything you wanted from a Willy Wonka-themed slot is here and Light & Wonder has got the whole gang back together to represent the symbols. The Oompa Loompas have their own special duties and that is to stretch the reels out as wide as possible. All of the above plays along to the familiar sounds of the original movie. Watch out for the fully mobile optimised version too if you’d like to access World of Wonka on your Apple or Android device.
You can rely on this game to offer up plenty of action with regular wins keeping you amused and those Oompa Loompas seemed to stay fairly busy as well. My biggest gripe is that the feature trigger is a little long-winded. You need 3 Scatter symbols to turn up and this, in turn, triggers the Wheel of Fortune. Only after spinning this wheel can you hope to land one of the bonus games. It's an extra step that I could have done without.
The payouts are frequent but usually of a low value thanks to the low-ish volatility and the max 1,030x win. Don't expect any eye-watering sums of cash unless you're prepared to up the ante—a range of stakes are available up to £100 per spin. The RTP may differ, depending on where you play, but it could be as high as 96%.
Having grown up with this classic movie, I was always going to love a slot recreation that allowed me to relive the magic. World of Wonka does rate fairly highly on its own merit and probably gets a bit of an elevated score from me just because I love the film! The features were, potentially, fantastic but the trigger method was not a favourite of mine. It's still a fun and fast-moving game, nonetheless, and should be on your ‘to-do’ list.
