Wild Wheel

This new game series on Everi’s Dynasty Vue cabinet, with inaugural games Wild Wheel Otter and Wild Wheel Fox, is packed with bonus features, two of which can lead to one of six progressives, the top Grand resetting at $10,000.

The base game on each is a five-reel, 243-ways-to-win slot. The animated title character—otter or fox—hosts each bonus feature, and randomly acts to increase the chances of larger jackpots.

Wild symbols in the base game can trigger primary-game bonuses. In Wild Wheel Otter, a wild symbol reveals a credit prize—it can be as high as 50,000 credits—that is added to any ways combination including that wild symbol. In Wild Wheel Fox, the wild symbol will reveal a multiplier up to 4X applied to a winning combination.

Each game also has a unique progressive bonus triggered by one or more wild symbols. In Wild Wheel Otter, a bonus wheel including the six progressives appears. The otter will randomly nudge the wheel to eliminate lower progressive slices.

In Wild Wheel Fox, the progressive bonus is a picking game. The player chooses coins to reveal progressive icons, and matching three wins that progressive.

The common bonus feature to both games is the Wild Wheel Bonus. Land scattered bonus symbols on reels 3, 4, and 5 to trigger the bonus. Fox/Otter will present credit and progressive slices on the wheel and then apply multipliers to each credit slice up to 10X. The three top progressives are included as slices on the wheel.
