Wheel of Fortune Power Wedges

This is one of the first IGT wide-area progressive slots to be featured on the new CrystalWheel cabinet, which is an adaptation of the popular CrystalDual cabinet topped with the iconic spinning Wheel of Fortune bonus wheel.

IGT Wheel of Fortune Power Wedges carries the normal wide-area progressive, on either the Money Madness or the TV Hits jackpot link. At press time, the Native American Money Madness linked jackpot stood at just over $500,000; the Nevada Money Madness at $2.2 million. The TV Hits links also vary by jurisdiction—at press time, it ranged from just over $200,000 (Mississippi) to $2.7 million (Michigan).

Alternatively, the game is available as a stand-alone video slot, with a static top jackpot of 1 million credits.

The base game is available in two formats—either a 40-line video slot or a four-by-five, 1,024-ways-to-pay video slot, in which there are no paylines and wins register with adjacent symbols.

Two or more bonus symbols trigger a free-spin bonus. If the player bets 100 credits or more and lands three scattered wheel bonus symbols, the familiar game-show-style wheel bonus is triggered. The wheel spin bonus can award credits, the Pointer Frenzy feature or the Jackpot Wedges bonus. Players can win one of four multi-level progressives in the Jackpot Wedges Bonus, and a chance to win the wide-area progressive jackpot if they bet 300 credits or more.
