Wheel of Fortune – BetGames
Wheel of Fortune by BetGames is a live dealer game based on the big gambling wheels typically found in Las Vegas. The Wheel of Fortune is set up in a state-of-the-art studio, and all the action is live streamed directly to a player’s device. A real-life dealer hosts the game and spins the wheel. Players can make bets in real time using the innovative software developed by BetGames, and then watch all the action unfold on the screen.
The game play centres around a large wheel (as you’ve probably guessed by the title of the game). The wheel is divided into 19 segments. 18 of the segments are numbered from 1 to 18 and each one has a specific colour (grey, red, or black). The 19th segment, however, features a symbol (a cup with a star) rather than a number, and landing this segment wins you the maximum payout in terms of odds.
The host of the game spins the wheel approximately every four minutes. You must place your bet via the software during the interim period. Once the wheel is spinning, all betting stops. The wheel must complete three full turns in a clockwise direction to be considered as a valid spin. In order to win, you, must predict where the wheel will land.
Volatility and RTP
The estimated RTP for this live dealer game is 95%, which sits nicely in the range of RTP rates that make a game worthwhile. The volatility of this game is harder to gauge; we would suggest that it sits somewhere between medium to high. The game allows you to make bets that will increase your likelihood of winning, but the odds associated with your win will be low, meaning the payout will be underwhelming. You can also make bets with high odds that will lead to large payouts, but your chances of winning these bets decrease dramatically.
Wheel of Fortune offers a wide variety of betting options. Each option comes with specific odds that reflect the likelihood of a win. You can choose to play conservatively, or you can go all in for the big payout. Either way, you’ll experience a thrilling moment of being suspended in time while the wheel spins and decides your fate. Here are the different ways in which you can make your bets with Wheel of Fortune:
1. Pick the winning number
You have several options with the numbers. You can pick a specific number to get the highest odds (18:1), or you can bet that wheel will land somewhere between a range of numbers; 1 to 6; 7 to 12; 13 to 18 but doing so will reduce your odds to 2:9.
2. Pick the winning colour or Odd/Even
Picking the colour that the wheel will land on is a popular bet. Similar to a game of roulette, picking the colour will increase your chances of winning, but it will decrease your payout. If you Pick grey, red, or black, your odds will be 2:9. The same goes for choosing an odd/even bet. However, if you combine and odd/even bet with a colour bet, such as an odd number on a grey segment, or an even number on a red segment, you can increase your odds to 5:8.
3. Pick the jackpot symbol
Aside from picking a specific number, picking the jackpot symbol is the only way to win the maximum bet. The jackpot symbol has odds 18:1. If you put all your eggs in this basket, you could walk away with heavy pockets. But in truth, those odds are against you, and the likelihood of winning is slim to say the least.
Wheel of Fortune is an exciting game of chance. There is zero skill involved in playing this game; you are totally dependent on Lady Luck. If taking chances is your go-to gaming mode, you’ll love this risky little game. The live dealer element, however, is what really sets it apart from your average slot game, for example. The game is professionally run, the dealer is friendly, and the sense of camaraderie with other players all making bets at the same moment adds to the kicks and thrills. Our score: 5/5
