Information About Wheel of Fortune Slot Machines

The Wheel of Fortune slot machine has been a staple on casino floors since it first launched in 1995. Modeled after the popular, long-standing American TV game show, Wheel of Fortune, it’s a slot that’s hard to miss with its colorfully large, and recognizable spinning wheel that sits atop of the slot.

The machines are often standard three-reel machines, with a spot on the wheel typically being worth between 20 and 1000 credits. Special multipliers are attained when more than three spin symbols activate a game.

Since its arrival, the Wheel of Fortune slot machines have reportedly awarded more than $2.9 billion.
