Wheel to Spin

Game Description: Wheel to Spin is based on the popular game show Wheel of Fortune.

How to Play Wheel to Spin:

  • The object of Wheel to Spin is to solve each puzzle and win as much money as you can.
  • There are three puzzle rounds, plus one bonus round.
  • You get 10 turns to spin the wheel for each round.
  • Spin the wheel by clicking on it.
  • Pick a consonant. (Click on one of the white letters).
  • If the letter is part of the puzzle, you earn the amount on the wheel multiplied by how many times the consonant appears on the board.
  • There are also 'Bankrupt', 'Lose Turn', and 'Free Spin' wedges.
  • Landing on 'Bankrupt' will reset your round earnings to zero.
  • When landing on 'Bankrupt' or 'Lose Turn', you lose your turn. You must spin again unless you are out of turns.
  • The 'Free Spin' wedge earns you an extra turn and the value of $500 to play a letter.
  • On each turn, you can guess a consonant, buy a vowel, and attempt to solve the puzzle.
  • Vowels cost $250 each and are not worth points if they appear on the board. You can buy as many vowels as you want in a turn provided you have enough money that round.
  • To solve a puzzle, use your keyboard and type in your answer in the box at the bottom. Then, click the 'Solve' button.
  • For the first three puzzle rounds you must solve the puzzle before you run out of turns.
  • Correctly solving each regular puzzle will earn you $2,000.
  • For the bonus round, you do not get to pick your own letters. Instead, you will spin the wheel and if the letter you spin is on the board it will be displayed.
  • After 10 spins you get 60 seconds to try to solve the bonus puzzle.
  • Correctly solving the bonus puzzle will earn you $10,000.
  • This game is solely for entertainment purposes and no money or prizes are awarded.

Richard's Rating: 3 out of 5.

Comments: I have been searching for a decent Wheel of Fortune type game for quite some time. There are, of course, several around. But, speaking frankly, the ones I have seen up to this point are just plain awful. Not so with Wheel to Spin. This version is actually rather good, and I am pleased to bring it to you. My favorite part of the game is the bonus round where you don't get to choose your letters but instead it is left up to the wheel. This makes the bonus round the most challenging part of the game especially if you are unlucky enough to hit obscure letters like x, q, and z, or hit on letters you have already spun. If you are a fan of the TV show, or even if you are not, I think you will probably enjoy playing Wheel to Spin.
