Pragmatic Play Debuts the Mega Wheel for Live CasinosPublished November 17, 2020 by Mike P
Pragmatic Play has entered the world of gameshows by launching the Mega Wheel within a growing suite of live dealer tables.
In 2020, Pragmatic Play has attempted to develop a larger suite of live casino tables and this strategy continues with the November debut of Mega Wheel. After previously focusing on roulette wheels and blackjack tables, Pragmatic Play has finally entered the realm of gameshows by introducing the brand-new Mega Wheel at participating casino sites.
Embracing the Gameshow Format
To make this possible, Pragmatic Play has hired a friendly roster of live dealers to present the experience. Dressed in dapper suits and elegant dresses, the hosts are tasked with overseeing the digital broadcast of a super-sized wheel that is comprised of 54 multi-coloured segments that can deliver different values of payouts to players.
Pragmatic Play seems committed to making the gameshow format work. When announcing Mega Wheel, the software provider was eager to reveal that the live dealers have been instructed to engage with players based on what they say within the chat function. Pragmatic Play has also created a purpose-built studio that has been designed to utilise dynamic lighting and visual effects to enhance the experience.
How Mega Wheel Plays
Fundamentally, the game is like Wheel of Fortune in that the only aim is to correctly predict the next number that lands. From the numbers available, a player can win up to 40x times their bet in the game’s standard format. However, the Mega Lucky Number can be selected at random to potentially increase the player’s wager by up to 500x times for a Mega Win.
The Mega Wheel shall be playable in English and with more than 100 currencies and the ability to switch the user interface language through 20 available options. A “Bet on All” option is included to let users wager on all nine of the possible betting types, while the other features include “Autoplay” and “Advanced Bets Validation”. For clarify, users can even consult a detailed history of their wagering decisions.
