The slot has five reels and twenty-five paylines, with a 5x3 configuration. To the right of the reels, there is a so-called Big Wheel designed as a vertical bar divided into sectors; this gets activated optionally by wagering a side bet (which we describe below). The symbols you will see on the reels are traditional playing cards from Nine to Ace, and show-themed icons including the Tropical Island, the Automobile, the Showcase Wheel and the Model in Red.
WMS provides a classic take on symbols’ value making playing cards low-pay icons that award 5 to 150 coins for three to five of a kind. Themed icons pay out a way more: line up three, four or five of them and get up to 1000 coins. The most lucrative symbol in the slot is a beautiful assistant in a red dress that grants the top prize of 2500 coins if five appear on any active payline.
You have two betting options to adjust before a spin. By clicking + and - buttons in the Lines window you can increase or decrease the number of lines to bet on. The Stake/Line selector enables you to tune a bet per line that varies from $0.02 to $10. So the floor and ceiling bets per spin are $0.02 and $250 (without a size bet). Activating all lines at any coin value is a good idea, as it enables you to play the Big Wheel feature.
On the right side of the reels, there is the Big Wheel split into several dozen sections. It can be enabled during any base game if you bet on all the 25 paylines. Activating the Big Wheel costs 40% of your total bet. For example, if you wager $250, you pay extra $100 for the feature, totaling $350 per spin. The potential award outweighs your expenses, since you can win some bonus games and multipliers of up to x5 times applied to your winnings in the current base round.
The Host symbol acts as a wild substituting for all icons, except for scatters. The wild occurs on the second, third and fourth reels only activating one of the two mini-games you may pick from: Secret X feature and Cliff Hanger feature.
A scatter symbol is displayed by the slot’s logo that appears on the first, second and third reels only. When doing so, scatters trigger the Showcase feature. On the second screen, you will see a ranking board filled with seven items. Your task is to place them in the right order, from the cheapest to the most expensive ones. For every correct placement you get a x5 times multiplier to the triggering bet. If you get the entire ranking correctly, you are awarded a x100 times multiplier.
The Secret X mini-game can be triggered by three wild symbols (as described above) or if you have activated the Big Wheel. You will see a big square divided into nine smaller squares, with question marks covering three sections in the center. You will be prompted to guess a right price for the items. Each successful try is awarded a win of x18 times a triggering wager.
The Cliff Hanger mini-game can be triggered by three wild symbols (as described above) or if you have activated the Big Wheel. Once the Cliff Hanger feature starts, you get 8 free games and an extra bonus round that awards generous multipliers.
The Price is Right is an excellent WMS-released slot that stays true to the same-name American show. This action-stuffed slot has a plethora of bonus features, free spins, wilds and scatters to provide you the most realistic gaming experience. By activating a side bet (the Big Wheel), you boost your winning chances and win amazing multipliers.
