Wheel of Fortune Hawaiian Getaway Slot Machine
The TV show Wheel of Fortune is one of the most popular in the USA, especially in Hawaii, hence the title of this slot. The Wheel of Fortune slot, released over two decades ago, has received a new version, the Hawaiian Getaway. This show-themed slot is the latest release by IGT, which is full of features that can multiply your payouts. Take your bathing suit and visit the Waikiki beach with the aim of finding a real fortune.
As said, the Wheel of Fortune Hawaiian Getaway slot is filled with special features. The Big Kahuna is a feature that gives you respins. You will need to land 3 fully stacked symbols on successive reels to receive a respin. The reels then remain locked with a 3x3 symbol and you can get extra respins if you manage to land full stacks on adjacent reels. During the respins, the highest paying symbols come with multipliers from 2x to 5x. If you manage to land a full screen of these symbols, the reels transform into a 5x3 mega symbol, giving payouts of up to 62.5x your take.
The Wheel Bonus is a mode that you can trigger with at least 6 scatter symbols. With this mode, you can win all types of rewards, such as 10 Free Spins, coin wins, Jackpot Bonus Wedges or Pointer Frenzy.
The Free Spins Wedge can be retriggered and can reward you with up to 120 Free Spins. The Pointer Frenzy can give you 2 to 6 pointers and another spin of the Wheel, which in return can bring you multiple Jackpot Bonus and cash prizes. Above the reels, you will see the 5 fixed jackpots that give out payouts from 10 to 500. These are the Jackpot Bonuses which can actually pay up to 1,000x the stake.
Theme & Design
Although generally a show-themed slot, there is an obvious presence of the Hawaii theme, as well. Nevertheless, the elements interlock perfectly and are working well together. You will find symbols such as Lava, Hula (the dancing girl), Aloha, Volcano, Tiki (the traditional statue), and some playing card symbols with Hawaiian flowers. The reels are bamboo-covered, while in the background you can see the beach, the sea, and the palm trees. The entire scene depicts the perfect Hawaiian getaway, while the gameplay is clearly depicting the Wheel of Fortune part of the theme.
Wagering & Paylines
As you can see there is a lot of winning potential in this game, and there is a decent bet minimum amount of $0.50. You can end spending up to $250 per round but no more. With the 25 lines in the game, the frequent 5x multipliers that can go up to 62.5x and a fixed jackpot of up to 1,000 the stake, there is over $250,000 for grabs.
Considering the fact that Wheels of Fortune slot series have a huge popularity and a really great reputation in online gaming, it is no wonder that the newest version Hawaii Getaway is just as interesting as the others. It is packed with free spins, respins, multipliers, and jackpots, so there is nothing that you can dislike from the financial aspect. Visually, the slot is as interesting as the potential payouts, because the graphics are impressive, the reels colorful and the characters perfectly depict the theme.
