The whole basis of this slot is about the wheel of fortune style bonus round, and so what better way to kick off this review than to go to the best part. To get access to this wheel, you’ll need to get a match of at least three symbols, they can be played in any position so long as they’re on an active payline.
In regards to the actual wheel and the prizes upon it, a lot of them are small in truth, but there’s the odd wedge of value that grabs our attention, specifically the top paying x400 of our bet. Even if you play with the lowest wager of 0.25, that would still turn into a 100 credits win.
Sadly however, the round is all too short lived, and there’s little else to it other than what you see, which of course makes it a rather lacklustre feature. On one level it delivers, but on another it actually leaves you longing for more, with no outlet for your wants.
Ring My Bell
Can you even say a slot machine is Octavian if it hasn’t got a gamble option? We know we can turn the feature off if we’d like, but if we did that with Wheelenium Superior we’d be seriously lacking in variance. And so we keep it switched on, with the pinball option our main point of interest.
Seeing as we’ve played this so many times over however, the shine of the machine has begun to dull somewhat. If you’re new to the brand, this experience will be amazing, but if you’re a veteran, you’re going to be shown the same old mechanics. Not even the jazzed up design specifically for the slot can make this experience any better.
This lack of excitement is then highlighted further should you opt for the card option of the gamble, an already dull interface, made even worse by the lack of personality elsewhere in this game.
Most Octavian slots have a certain degree of difficulty, but with Wheelenium Superior it feels like the challenge has been made even greater; we barely got any wins during our playthrough. Don’t misunderstand us, successes were experienced, but they were few and far between.
Maybe this feels more acceptable to some, due to the low pay-in you can start with, but we feel that what you pay shouldn’t impact on the gameplay; have smaller prizes perhaps, but don’t up the difficulty.
Superior? We Think Not
Having a name like Wheelenium Superior opens a game up to all sorts of criticisms, but with this particular slot, we can’t help but think that the term ‘superior’ was misused. There’s nothing advanced or impressive about this slot machine, making it inferior at best, especially when compared with other slots from the brand.
For those of you wanting to game with little fuss, unconcerned about prize size and features, you’ll find this slot a doddle, but if you crave excitement and wonder, you won’t find it upon this grid. This is one of the worst titles from Octavian, and one we won’t be playing again.
