New Profile Card and Enhanced Buddy Lists just added!

We have another exciting feature to announce right now for Slots Wheel Deal fans! Ever want to know who that lucky spinner you were chatting to at the reels was before you add them as a buddy? Or want to send them a gift while you’re playing? Now you can!

Today we’re introducing a new Profile Card feature in Slots Wheel Deal. Simply click on a player’s avatar in-game, and you’ll be able to view their Profile Card. This will show you their photo, their level, how many buddies they have, and their balance. You’ll have the option to add them as a buddy directly from their Profile Card.

Buddy Request

Once you’ve been accepted as a buddy, you’ll also be able to quickly join each other’s tables to play or exchange gifts straight from the Profile Card. It will also be possible to remove the buddy there, should you want to.

We’ve also completely redesigned the Buddy List menu in the game. Apart from a design facelift, we’ve included the option to ‘View’ your buddies’ Profile Cards at any time. Additionally, it’ll now easier to scroll through and view all your buddies from the improved menu.

Slots Wheel Deal Bet Range update – Coming soon!

Slots Wheel Deal fans – we heard you! We added a new Bet Range feature to Slots Wheel Deal last week: a) to reward players who stuck with the game for leveling up, and b) to give new players the chance to spin and experience the bonus rounds without running out of chips too quickly.

Since we launched the new betting structure, you’ve shared a lot of feedback with us! The three main things we heard from you on Facebook and via email to our support team were:

  1. You noticed the tables weren’t full enough when playing at certain Bet Ranges
  2. You weren’t always able to join your buddies’ games because they were playing at a higher Bet Range that you didn’t have a high enough balance for or hadn’t yet unlocked
  3. You wanted the ability to bet more than 1 million chips per spin

Your feedback and enjoyment of the game is really important to us! So we’re now working on some adjustments to the Bet Ranges. Here’s what’s coming in a few days…

More players at the tables: we want you to be able to experience multiplayer slots with full tables. It’s more competitive, engaging, and quite simply more fun! To do this, we’ll be seating players of different bet ranges together. This increases the number of players and fills up the positions around the reels.

Easier to join buddies in their games: in order to play at a given Bet Range in the current game, you must have a minimum balance of 50X the amount of chips needed to spin in that range. We’ve done that so that you don’t burn through all your chips in one spin and can enjoy the game longer. In the upcoming release, the minimum balance required will be reduced by half to 25X. That, along with the new seating, should make it much more likely that you and your buddies will be able to play together at a table.

Higher bets per spin: As before, you’ll unlock the option of playing at higher Bet Ranges as you gain experience and level up. However, as some of our long-time players have spun their way to huge balances, we’re introducing a new, higher Bet Range called ‘Millionaire.’ In this new range, you’ll be able to bet between 4 million and 20 million chips per spin!

Take a look at the Bet Range chart below for the soon to be released new Slots Wheel Deal game:

Exciting new features in Slots Wheel Deal!

We’ve got huge news to announce for Slots Wheel Deal fans!

EXCHANGE GIFTS WITH BUDDIES

You asked for it, and we’ve just updated the game on web and Android with a new Gifting feature (coming soon for Amazon and iPhone/iPad players)! Now you’ll be able to send gifts to your Yazino buddies from the game lobby.

When you receive a gift, a counter will be displayed in the lobby, and a giftbox icon will appear over your profile picture in the game. You’ll have the option to select either 100 free chips, or to opt for a mystery gift between 20-2,000 chips!

Mystery gift

You can send one gift to each buddy per day, and collect up to 25 gifts per day. Gifts are valid for 4 days, so make sure you and your buddies collect them before they disappear! TIPS: The 24-hr day for collecting gifts begins at 5am GMT (midnight EST). The 24-hr day for sending gifts to the same buddy begins from the time the gift is sent.

INTRODUCING BET RANGES

Today we’ve introduced a new feature called ‘Bet Ranges,’ which is the range of the amount of chips you will be able to bet per line at the reels. As you level up in the game, you’ll unlock the option of playing at higher bet ranges. The number of lines you bet on at the reels is now fixed at 20 lines. Take a look at this chart for details on what level you need to unlock a bet range, and what it means for your bets per spin.

When you pass one of the levels that unlocks a bet range, you’ll get notified in the game that you can now bet at the next range. You’ll just need to have enough chips to get through a few spins and bonus rounds in order to play at the higher bet ranges.

UPDATED CONTROL PANEL

You’ll notice an update to the control panel at the reels now. We’ve moved the ‘max bet’ button to the left side so it’s less likely for you to accidentally bet max if you don’t want to! Also, we’ve added a ’20 lines’ button that displays all the winning lines.

We hope you’ll enjoy the exchanging chip gifts with your buddies and trying out the new bet ranges. Let us know in the comments what you think. Happy spinning!

Get to know the all-new Slots Wheel Deal with these Top 10 Tips

If you’ve been keeping up with Yazino news over the last few weeks – as a fan of our Facebook Page, in your inboxes, and here on our blog – you’ll know that the completely redesigned Slots Wheel Deal game has finally arrived on web and Android!

We’ve been listening to your feedback on the new game that you’ve shared with us on Facebook, Twitter, and via our Support Team, and wanted to address some of your most frequently asked questions.

***

Here are your Top 10 most asked Slots Wheel Deal questions answered…

1) Q: How do I know when you level up, and how many more points I need to reach the next level?

A: Whenever you level up in the game (congrats!), you’ll see an animation that looks like the one here. To track your progress until you reach the next level, take a look at the star icon on your avatar at the reels. This handy little indicator fills up as you gain experience points at the reels. Once it’s filled, level up you go!

2) Q: Can I control whether or not the new game show presenter character appears in the game?

A: The new presenter is there to provide you with tips and to help you follow what’s happening in the game. But, if you’d rather he not be there, you can turn him off with a simple check box from the settings menu in the top right corner of the game screen.

3) Q: Have you changed the way the Bonus Bank adds up?

A: Yes, the way you grow your Bonus Bank has changed. We explained this in detail in a blog post a few weeks ago. To summarize, first, for every wheel symbol you land at the reels, 4% of your total bet (up from 2% before) is added to your Bonus Bank. Second, during phase 2 of the game – when the Wheel Deal has been revealed and the race to collect three wheel symbols has begun – you’ll no longer build your Bonus Bank. This reduces the incentive for ‘non-spinners’ to unfairly grab the coveted centre spot in the Bonus Round. Last, the Star Player selected in the centre of the Bonus Round will now win even more. On top of receiving the highest multiplier, this lucky player will also be paid 10% of their total bet into their Bonus Bank!

4) Q: I’m playing on the web and having trouble loading the game. What can I do – I want to play!

A: If you’re having loading issues, there are a few things you can try. First, update your Flash player. You can download this free from Adobe. Second, you can try playing in a different internet browser, such as Google Chrome. Third, you can try clearing the cache on your browser (depending on which one you’re using, this is often found under the ‘Tools’ or ‘Preferences’ menus). Please be patient; if you’re playing on a slow connection, it could take up to 90 seconds to load the first time. But don’t worry, once you’ve loaded the game once it gets cached so it’ll be faster the next time.

5) Q: How do I know if I receive my winnings at the end of the Bonus Round?

A: At the end of the Bonus Round, winners are designated by a special animation showing the winning multiplier and the chip amount as shown here.

6) Q: How do I adjust my bet in the new version of the game?

A: Change your bet by clicking on the arrows either side of the ‘Bet’ button at the bottom of the screen. Clicking right raises your bet, clicking left lowers it. If you can’t see the red bet buttons, try zooming out on your browser. You may need to refresh the page after changing the zoom if you don’t see this instantly.

7) Q: What is the maximum I can bet?

A: In the new Slots Wheel Deal, we’ve linked your maximum bet to the level you’ve reached in the game. When you level up, you unlock the ability to bet more at the reels. You should have the maximum bet available to you by Level 16, which is currently 1 million chips per line.

8) Q: What does pressing the ‘Max Spin’ button do?

A: Pressing ‘Max Spin’ stakes your maximum bet on all 20 lines on a single spin. For example, if your maximum bet based on your level is 10,000 chips, you’d be betting 200,000 chips (or 10,000 chips per line for 20 lines) in that spin. Remember, betting max has no impact on your chances of winning or getting selected in the Bonus Round. It may, however, help you increase your Bonus Bank faster.

9) Q: What are my options for joining friends at a table?

A: You have a couple of options for joining friends if you’d like to play together at the same table. If you load up Slots Wheel Deal and a Buddy is already playing, their gizmo will appear in the lobby, and you’ll be able to join them directly (assuming there’s an available seat at the table). Alternately, you can join them as usual from the Buddy List.

10) Q: When will the new Slots Wheel Deal be available to play on iOS?

A: The new Slots Wheel Deal is now ready to play on the web or on your Android device. iPhone and iPad users get ready though ­– the revamped iOS app isn’t far behind! We’ll be sharing more info on that very soon.

WIN BIGGER THAN EVER IN SLOTS WHEEL DEAL!

We’re so excited to share the all-new Slots Wheel Deal with you! Here are a few more snazzy game features that will be included in the upcoming launch. 

Boost your bonus bank
Great news! We’re doubling the amount of your bet that’s added to your bonus bank in the first phase of the game. As a reminder, that’s when you’re spinning the reels to collect 20 wheel symbols. In the current version of the game, for every wheel symbol you land, 2% of your total bet is added to your bonus bank. We’re now increasing this to 4% which means you’ll boost your bonus bank even faster! 

Eliminating non-spinners
During phase 2 of the game, when the Wheel Deal has been revealed and the race to collect three wheel symbols has begun, you’ll no longer build your bonus bank. We’ve made this change in response to your feedback about ‘non-spinners’ playing unfairly to grab the centre spot. Put simply, if you don’t spin then you can’t win big!

Star Players win even more!
We’ve made the coveted centre spot in the bonus round even more appealing. The Star Player who unlocks three wheels during phase 2 of the game will now get an even bigger reward. On top of receiving the highest multiplier, this lucky player will also be paid 10% of their total bet into their bonus bank. Woo hoo!

What do you think of these changes? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
