Live casino games have grown spectacularly over the years. They used to be little more than recreations of existing titles. That did not stop developers from experimenting with different titles over the years. Players reacted quite positively to these new additions, encouraging developers and operators to add more. Among these new additions were money wheels.
However, money wheels have been hands down the most popular new addition to game libraries everywhere. In this article, we will highlight a few of the most popular tables.
By now, you have probably had a chance of playing at least one money wheel. If you have missed them until now, there is no need to worry. Part of their appeal is the fact they are very easy to understand. In just a few rounds, you will know exactly how to play one. They are also easy to find in live casinos, as almost every software provider has their version.
Money wheels are comprised of a single wheel with multiple segments. Each segment is labelled with a number. Before the wheel is spun, players bet what number the wheel will draw. The winning number is selected using the flapper above the wheel. If you correctly bet on that number, you will receive a cash prize. If you guess wrong, you will lose.
Newer money wheels have also added various bonuses to keep things interesting. The most common special features are win multipliers. If the flapper lands on one, it will boost the next cash prize with the multiplier. There are also unique bonuses which grant direct cash prizes. These are popular with newer generation money wheels.
The first money wheels were rather simple affairs. If your number was drawn, you would win a cash prize. At most, you could get your total payout increased. However, games shifted to a formula similar to Crazy Time as time went on. That is why the addition of Pragmatic Play’s Mega Wheel was met with enthusiasm. It was a money wheel based on the old way of doing things.
A quick comparison to Evolution’s latest wheel makes the difference immediately obvious. Mega Wheel comes with more numbers you can draw, giving you a wider range of bets. Pragmatic Play’s release can also grant multipliers, but they are not drawn from the wheel. Instead, they are granted randomly using RNG. With these additions, players can win up to 500x their total stake.
