IGT POWERBUCK$ Wheel of Fortune Exotic Far East Video Slot Review

IGT is back with another video slot in its popular Wheel of Fortune series which this time comes with a distinctly Asian flavour. POWERBUCK$ Wheel of Fortune Exotic Far East is a 5 reel, 30 payline video slot that comes with glossy visuals, treasure chests that can deliver instant wins, free spins and potential riches from the POWERBUCK$ progressive jackpot. Play on your PC, tablet or mobile from 75p per spin.

Like many of IGT’s games, POWERBUCK$ Wheel of Fortune Exotic Far East has the look of a classic brick and mortar casino slot. The design is simply done but there’s a real glossy sheen to the visuals. Set against a lakeside backdrop with lanterns floating on the water, you’ll see lower value royals as well as fish, elephants and pandas spinning around the reels. Land 5 pandas on a line for a payout of 16.66 times your bet. There’s also a wild that can land anywhere apart from reel 1. There are a few features that are well worth noting.

Ca$h Link feature – special treasure chest symbols can land on reel 5. If coin symbols land elsewhere on the reels then they become active. The cash values attached to the gold coins are added together and you’ll pocket that amount as an instant win.

Joining the standard treasure chest on reel 5 is one edged with Wheel of Fortune-style coloured segments. If you also see the coin with the coloured edge on reel 1 on the same spin, you’ll then get a spin on the Wheel of Fortune in the Bonus Wheel feature. Prizes on offer here include coin wins and jackpot prizes.

Hope to see the pointer drop into the POWERBUCK$ segment as this triggers a potentially massive progressive jackpot prize. To be in with a chance of landing the POWERBUCK$ progressive jackpot of at least £1 million, you need to be playing at stakes of at least £3 per spin.

Free Spins Bonus feature – land scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin and you’ll receive 10 free spins. You can trigger the Ca$h Link feature from within the free spins round. Landing 3 scatters results in a re-trigger and another round of free spins.

This is just the sort of video slot IGT specialises in. It’s not overloaded with extras but the features offer some decent potential. It’s not the most volatile slot but the rewards on offer from the POWERBUCK$ jackpot means it will likely be a popular one. If you enjoy IGT’s usual branded content, then expect more of the same in POWERBUCK$ Wheel of Fortune Exotic Far East.
