Wheel of Fortune Diamonds Deluxe

This latest entry in the venerable Wheel of Fortune franchise, on the imposing PeakSlant49 Wheel cabinet, adds a persistent pot-style bonus to the classic theme.

The base game is a five-reel, 243-ways-to-win format. There are two base games, Date Night and Honeymoon, each with a different base-game wild feature. Date Night includes 2X multiplying wild symbols, and Honeymoon features wild symbols that expand to cover a block of symbols. There are six progressive jackpots, resetting at $10 for the Mini and at $500,000 for the Grand wide-area progressive.

Diamonds Deluxe features a persistence feature, the iconic wheel with upgrades and a jackpot match bonus. The game features a primary-game pot-style collection feature. Each time a wild lands, a bowl above the reels will fill up with diamonds, and as the pile grows, the jackpot bonus can randomly be triggered.

In the jackpot bonus, the player will be presented with a pick grid of 21 diamonds, and players match three symbols to win a progressive jackpot. Additionally, up to three “removal” icons can be found during the jackpot bonus, and the lowest jackpot available is removed for bigger win potential.

The wheel bonus is triggered when three, four or five bonus symbols land and turn into pick symbols awarding up to three upgrades, which include a wheel boost, multipliers, an extra pointer, or an extra spin.
