It would have been a worthwhile trip to the Valley View Casino & Hotel in California for a local man, as he won $1.6 million on a game of IGT Wheel of Fortune Ultra Wheels penny slot.

Robert S, who is from the local neighbourhood of San Diego, has been a frequent visitor to the casino since 2014. Casino staff were standing in amazement as the punter hit the jackpot of $1,664,509.91 on the machine.

Speaking to NBC San Diego a few days removed from his jackpot success, he revealed his astonishment. 

“I’m still in shock. I couldn’t sleep for two days. I was up tossing and turning and thought they would call me and say that the machine malfunctioned.”

Robert’s win comes weeks before the Californian casino plans to open its $50 million expansion. He reportedly told staff that he would return to the casino as he typically does, and would continue playing on the penny slot. 

He also revealed to NBC that the money will be used to invest in his future, and will help only feed his excitement for an early retirement.

The vice president of gaming operations at the casino, Randy Reedy was thrilled for the winning punter. He said

“It’s an amazing experience when luck strikes.”

Online Wheel of Fortune Slot

If you are reading this and starting to feel like you want a piece of the cake, then you can.  The same producers, IGT casinos, have an accessible online version of Wheel of Fortune, which is a similar game. 

There are three variations on the game, and the one that you will be playing would depend on the casino that you’re a member with. 

The varieties differ between a Hollywood Edition, Triple Action Frenzy and the original instalment. However, one thing that remains on all the variations of the game is that there are 15 paylines and five reels.

The Triple Action Frenzy variation of the game offers unique perks that are unavailable with the other two; with the most notable inclusion involving the opportunity to strike super wilds. In turn, these will begin an in-game feature in which the player must select an envelope; the number that you find in this hidden document will be how many winning spin multipliers the player will receive.

However, no matter which version of the game that you’re playing; the Wheel of Fortune scatters always begin the original wheel bonus. That being said, the Frenzy edition also sees that three triple action scatters also begin a wheel feature; but with a unique multiplier bonus.

Fans’ of the show won’t be left disappointed with the game, as it is a two-parter. The first of which requires players to solve a puzzle to be rewarded with multipliers. Should you not guess the puzzle then the player won’t receive any multipliers.

The game is most renowned for its time on television in the United States; with host Bob Barker.
