That feature begins with up to 18 free spins as well as Extending Reels that can display up to 10 symbols each.
A fully expanded reel also delivers a retrigger and another round of up to 12 free spins. Look out too for wilds that transform into Wild Megastacks and fill entire reels. With 80,150 x stake wins, find out more about this extremely volatile slot in our Wheel of Fortune Megaways review.

Wild symbols play a central role in the gameplay of Wheel of Fortune Megaways. Whenever a Wild symbol lands at any stage of the game, the Wild Megastacks feature can trigger at random to cover the entire reel in Wild symbols. Up to 3 Megastacks can appear on a single spin.
Full Wild Feature
Wheel of Fortune offers a full wild feature, something we’ve seen before in previous Megaways games, such as Maze Escape Megaways and Dragon Born Megaways. This is a very convenient feature, when this reel modifier is randomly triggered, one or more of the reels will transform in a Wild.
In the Wheel of Fortune Megaways base game, it can randomly activate on reels 2-5 in up to 3 reels. During free spins, it works slightly differently: it activates on up to 2 reels, but there can be up to 10 symbols per reel. The Wild substitutes all other symbols but the scatter in forming winning combos.
Free Spins Bonus Round
Next up is the free spin feature, this is triggered when 3 or more scatter symbols land in view upon the reels. The more scatters that hit the better though, with 3, 4, 5, and 6 scatters award 12, 14, 16, or 18 free spins respectively. You’ll experience a bit of the gameshow before you enter the bonus round, with you spinning the famous wheel to determine the number of Megaways™ you will begin the free spins with.
In Wheel of Fortune Megaways, the free spins bonus round is triggered when 3 ore more scatters symbols (the Wheel of Fortune logo) appear anywhere in view. As always, the more scatters you land, the higher the number of free spins you’ll be awarded. It works as follows:
- 3 scatters: 12 free spins
- 4 scatters: 14 free spins
- 5 scatters: 16 free spins
- 6 scatters: 18 free spins
Once you’ve gotten underway, the key in the bonus round is to land the expansion symbol as many times as possible. When this symbol lands it will be replaced by two symbols from the paytable and expand the length of that reel by a further 1 position. Fully expanding a reel to 10 positions will cause a re-trigger and the wheel will once again spin to award you some extra free spins. If you’re lucky enough to expand all of the reels, then you’ll be playing with a cool 1 million Megaways™.
