Play Big Wheel Online Slot Machine


Jump behind the wheel and prepare for a nostalgic journey courtesy of Realistic Games and the Big Wheel slot, available at this online casino. This is a colorful, quirky slot that has a few modern tweaks and features but ultimately relies on an old-school, traditional layout and mechanics that will be familiar to anyone who grew up playing vintage slot machines in pubs, clubs, and arcades.

You know the sort—you dropped a few coins inside the slot, you pulled the big plastic lever, and you watched the three reels spin before your eyes. They were big, clunky, and noisy, but they were also incredible machines and it’s thanks to these slots and the generation they entertained that we have online slot machines.

Big Wheel pays homage to a vintage style that has faded but never quite disappeared and it will appeal to anyone who remembers the aforementioned slots fondly, as well as anyone who likes their games fast, simple, and colorful. Big Wheel also includes a feature that was commonplace on all retro slots and made them what they were, but has since disappeared.

If you have ever played arcade slots then you’ll remember the “nudge” feature. This was all the rage back in the day and was as exciting, if not more so, than any Bonus round or Free Spins feature. It’s not something you see much of these days, but it’s something that Realistic Games has brought back with this video slot.

There are three nudge buttons on the game reels, which has been built to resemble a gaming cabinet, and these each represent one of the reels. There are three nudges to use on each spin and they help to shift the reels into a higher paying position.

Play for Fun (Practice Mode)

Big Wheel takes you on a nostalgic trip to an old-school arcade or casino floor. The gaming cabinet is right in front of you and you can feel like you’re in amongst the action. It’s a title that you don’t need to gamble on to enjoy and that’s why it is also available in practice mode. You will need an account before you can utilise this mode but you don’t need to have any money in that account.

Big Wheel may look like a simple game on the surface, but once you start spinning those reels you’ll realise that it is anything but. There are a few features that set this game apart from other retro slots while still providing the speed and simplicity associated with these titles.

These features are activated when the

Bonus symbol appears on the center reel. At this point you just need to press the button, spin the wheel, and then wait for one of the following to land:

  • Roundabout: Hit “Start” to halt the flashing lights as they switch between different symbols. If they stop on a symbol then you will receive a prize to the value of that symbol.
  • Super Jackpot: Returns a win of three ducks along with the chance to repeat that win as much as 9 times.
  • Roller Coaster: Hit “Start” to determine the number of moves, after which the reels will move accordingly.
  • Ring The Bell: The reels spin gradually until they hit a bell, after which a prize is awarded.
  • Crazy Reels: Wins are awarded for symbols that appear in any positions.
  • Duck Shoot: Pays the lowest symbol and then provides a chance to switch to a higher paying symbol via a gamble feature.

Software and Mobile Experience

Big Wheel was designed to work as well on mobile as it does on desktop. The touchscreens of tablets and phones also provide more of a tactile experience, which adds to the immersion and increases the nostalgic factor to 11. It’s how this game was meant to be played and you can join in regardless of the device or platform that you use.


Big Wheel is a slot that is sure to please everyone, from the retro slot fans who yearn for the days of fruit machines and nudge features, to those who lean more towards the big bonus slots loaded with all kinds of features, such as Gladiator and Rocky.
