Wheel of Fortune Gold Spin: Deluxe Double Gold

This latest entry in IGT’s storied Wheel of Fortune franchise has a feature addition to the familiar bonus wheel that allows players to win multiple credit slices on a single spin.

The base game is a three-reel, five-line stepper on IGT’s new CrystalWheel mechanical reel-spinning cabinet. Betting the maximum 15 credits increases the player’s chances of being awarded the Wheel of Fortune jackpot and activates the Gold Spin Deluxe feature.

The Gold Spin Deluxe Wheel, activated with a 10-credit bet, is a video wheel in the corner of the top display that spins concurrently with the physical reels, and can land on slices that activate the main bonus wheel spin with one or two extra pointers at the top of the wheel, along with a multiplier that applies to the spin of the physical wheel.

When three spin symbols land on any played line, or when the video wheel lands on one of the symbols, the physical wheel is triggered.

Players get one spin on the physical wheel. When the bonus is initiated from the Gold Spin Deluxe Wheel, players are awarded up to three pointers and can receive up to a 5X multiplier.

Available in certain jurisdictions, a wide-area progressive jackpot rewards players who have placed a bet of five to 10 credits. The non-progressive version features a $1 million jackpot.

The jackpot can be won during the Wheel of Fortune bonus or the Gold Spin Deluxe bonus.
