Lolly, dough, filthy lucre. Yes, cash is king in Wild Wheel Big Money, a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Push Gaming. Simply designed, it comes with nudging wilds that can fill reels and a spin the wheel bonus round that awards cash prizes and free spins. Play on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.
The design in Wild Wheel Big Money is rather basic – set against a plain blue backdrop, the reels include lower value A to J playing card values alongside coins, stacks of notes, gold bars, a briefcase full of money and a piggy bank. The most rewarding symbol is the gold safe which pays 2, 7.5 or 30 times your total stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.
Those same amounts are on offer from the wild too which spins in stacks of 3. If 1 or 2 parts of a wild stack land, they will nudge up so that the whole of the reel turns wild – this is known as the Nudging Wilds feature. Fill all 3 middle reels with a single 3×3 block of wilds and you’ll trigger the Wild Wheel feature.
This is like playing Wheel of Fortune – depending on where the pointer lands, you’ll be awarded an instant cash prize, free spins or a wheel upgrade. If you don’t like what you’ve won, you can reject the offer and spin again. You can do this 3 times. Land on a wheel upgrade and you’ll spin again on a potentially more lucrative wheel which offers bigger prizes and higher numbers of free spins. There are 3 wheels in total.
If you land on and accept an allocation of free spins, you’ll then go and play them. The free spins are a little different here – on each free spin, 3 reels will all show identical symbols. Land a good combination on the 2 independently spinning reels and some top action is on offer here.
Wild Wheel Big Money could come straight from a TV gameshow. With the brassy visuals and bouncing soundtrack (especially in the feature), all that’s missing is the cheesy host. Simple it may be but we enjoyed this game. The nudging wilds keep things moving along at pace in the base game and the bonus wheel offers some excellent potential. Get lucky spinning the prize wheel and Wild Wheel Big Money can certainly live up to its name. If you like gameshow inspired slots, Bullseye by Microgaming is worth a gander
