IGT’s POWERBUCK$ Wheel of Fortune Exotic Far East Slot ReviewThere’s a typically glossy look to the design in POWERBUCK$ Wheel of Fortune Exotic Far East. Set against a riverside backdrop, you’ll see lanterns gently bobbing on the water. On the reels are lower value royal values plus fish, an elephant and a panda. Land 5 of the panda symbol for a payout of 16.66 times your stake. There’s also a wild that can land anywhere apart from reel 1. There are a few features on offer in this Asian adventure.

Ca$h Link feature - land either of the 2 treasure chest symbols on reel 5 to trigger this round. Any gold coin symbols on display elsewhere on the reels on that spin then become active. All the cash values are added together and that’s the total prize you’ll win.

If you land the treasure chest featuring the wheel on reel 5 plus the gold coin edged in colour on reel 1, then you’ll get a spin of the Wheel of Fortune in the Wheel Bonus feature. On offer here are cash prizes as well as Major and Grand Jackpots. If the pointer falls in the POWERBUCK$ segment, you’ll win the massive progressive prize. You need to be playing at stakes of £3 per spin or higher to be in with a chance of triggering the progressive – the jackpot will be a minimum of £1 million!

Free Spins Bonus feature - this round is activated by landing the free spins scatter on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin. You’ll then get 10 free spins. Each time a treasure chest lands on reel 5, you’ll trigger the Ca$h Link feature and win all the cash amounts shown on the gold coins.

POWERBUCK$ Wheel of Fortune Exotic Far East is typical of what we’ve come to expect from games in this franchise.

It’s very reminiscent of a brick and mortar casino slot in terms of design and features. It’s not particularly volatile but the prospect of landing a bumper progressive jackpot is what will likely make POWERBUCK$ Wheel of Fortune Exotic Far East a hit. It’s not something we’ll be coming back to again and again though. If you want life changing jackpots and better gameplay, IGT’s MegaJackpots series slots are recommended – MegaJackpots Ocean Belles would be my pick.
