Hate the new update
*** update. You added back a bunch of the things that I had mentioned below. I was very happy and started playing a lot again. But now it’s all gone again? Why?
I feel like you have taken the fun out of the game. I always enjoyed my one free pass to play bonus round when I lost the standard round, as well as my 1 free hint. You have also removed the option to view an ad in order to get a free bronze box when loosing the bonus round. Also, the amount of times I get loose turn or bankrupt on the wheel is ridiculous. It’s basically ONCE a turn. Makes me frustrated and I stop playing. I also dislike that when playing the lucky letter you now have 3 spins rather than 3 turns. And buying a vowel counts as a spin?? It wouldn’t be so bad if we went back to the old way of each player taking a turn to spin. Then you could see more letters of the puzzle and possibly get the lucky letter. guessing the letter with only 3 try’s is almost impossible and just luck. The current valentine’s game you have going is too hard. I’m never going to earn enough gifts to win more than the first 4 prizes. The last Lunar New Year game I won all of the prizes except the last one. I realize you have done all of this so that people buy diamonds. But with all of the ads we are forced to watch I feel that we deserve some of the little perks you have taken away. I’m a long time player, at the Amsterdam level, honestly I don’t feel like playing any more. It’s not fun.
I love the spin until you miss feature and also the open 5 boxes at a time. And I like being able to continue playing until a new level is created. And I love the new 5 spins to get free diamonds with a 25 diamond bonus.
I have been having trouble getting credit for special wheel tournaments. I will complete a challenge, “Defeat Jack 5 times,” but it will give an error message that the game is offline, or something like that, and I have to re-play the challenge again. This has happened at least 5 times in the past few days.
Also, when I’m playing a tournament challenge where I have to “defeat Jack 3 times”, it won’t give me a chance to play against Jack or sometimes any of the characters. I may play 8 -10 games and none of them are against the characters.
Those were earlier comments. I have some new concerns. I love playing this game but I do get frustrated sometimes. I will use my upgrades for better spins and I will only get $350, $500, $750, even though I use the upgrade to the highest level for better spins. So I basically spend 100 or more diamonds to upgrade and still don’t get enough money to earn the prizes! Very frustrating. This happens at least half the time and probably closer to 3/4 of the time.
Wheel of fortune

I’m one of your older players. I love the game. I do not do Facebook nor do I buy diamonds or any other products. Since I’ve been playing you’ve critiqued the game and made many improvements. The diamonds I’ve earned I must use very wisely. If I’m towards the end of a game that’s mostly when I would use them. 250$ is way to much to require to continue a box. I want to Andress the letter streak. You will often give a puzzle with two words about 12 letters then when you miss only one it erases all the letters. I think when you earn a letter you should be able to keep it not have it erased. Now I do believe there are things you could do to make the the player average feel more accomplished and happy. Lower thes products. This is rediculous. 250 diamonds to continue a game. My favorite help is the free hint. I love being able to buy 3 hints for 150 diamonds. I would save for this. Some of your versions have absolutely to many bankrupts. Soon you just get numb to all of this lose turn and bankrupts and you think WELL ILL JUST PLAY AND FORGET ABOUT WINNING. THANK YOU. THIS IS MY REVIEW AND I MISS NOT BEING ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH MY FRIENDS LORI AND JOSIAH ALL THE OTHERS. IT ALWAYS HELPS TO FEEL LIKE SOMEONE IS LISTENING. THANKS DONNADONNA
I have been playing this game for a few months and do enjoy the puzzles. There are quite a few issues, though. One it is a pay to play type with 5 tickets to play and it takes 2 1/2 hours to refill. There are a ton of ads, as well. Then, there is the regular freezing and crashing of the game mid puzzle. You will lose your progress for the bonus round prizes and the developer response is blah.
My final gripe is the progression through the levels. It takes forever if you do not spend a ton of cash. I am level 192 as I refuse to spend real money on these games. You can win a decent amount of diamonds in tournaments and this would enable more game play. The catch is almost everyone who wins a tournament is level 460. In the daily tournaments each player is given a different puzzle and you use your own wheel that you have upgraded as you go. So, if you are level 460 and have upgraded your wheel to have $5000 wedges, versus a level 100 player who only has $600 wedges, you have quite the advantage. The Fast Play tournaments are more of a level playing field, but the prizes are much smaller.
All in all this is entertaining, but if you are a long term player the slow progress is frustrating. There should be more opportunities for players to win diamonds in the tournaments, such as level based participation. If the tournaments organized players by how skilled they are, we might stand a chance of winning.
Special events are a grind
I’ve been playing a few weeks and love the base game...but the special events are horrible. I thought the Lunar New Year one was fun, but the Valentine’s Day and Around the World are so boring that they detract from the whole game play. VDay took way too many collections to win special wedges, and now you’ve “made the game more fun” by making it next to impossible to win the collection items. Also, by making the collection items disappear so quickly, there are times when I have to decide between winning the special event cards and strategically guessing letters based on the amount of the current wedge (which is kind of a big part of the game???). And this is all for the CHANCE of winning something in one or two spins later, which becomes meaningless when you’re only completing a couple of special wedges. If you’re going to stick with making the special events punishing like this, can you at least not have them so frequently? I don’t understand the point of advancing to unlock upgrade cards when there’s basically a short window of a couple of hours between events where I might (maybe, possibly) be able to win them.
And I have to say that this is the first app I’ve ever played where the special events go on forever and stink. I’m not sure what you’re thinking on that.
So ever since Covid started I have been playing this game and wheel of fortune and I like it I teach at it I meant I teach it to my kids and they enjoy it and I hope that you do too it’s a very fun way to communicate and to go on different trips quotation quotation marks so yeah it’s fun and I love it and I hope everyone else does and you should read this five stars except that the VIP and you have to log into Facebook to do a background in a backdrop which I don’t like because I mean I have a Facebook account but I don’t want to log into it because they might steal my information but I still love it and it’s good and I hope all of you like it except the VIP which cost a lot of money I’m just kidding it doesn’t my husband thinks it’s him and and ever since COVID-19 started I’ve just been one and wanting to break and to like watch wheel of fortune but my kids hate the show but I love it my husband does and we normally watch it sometimes when I get to go to sleep but like they’re normally not sleep so this is a great way to communicate to see how good you are and yeah I hope all of you guys like it and love it by out
Finally I saw some changes that were so positive! Legitimate rewards that could actually encourage players, free diamond rewards based on winnings, vanna letters for prizes and vowel bursts. Then all the crap started again. I couldn’t advance on the board because of ridiculous obstacles. It showed I had secured over five other completed tasks, but I couldn’t move on to get them because completing the existing one often made it impossible. The cash o meter suddenly became unreachable and when one did the rewards were miniscule. If a hint is a 100 diamonds, how is a win of 5, 10 or 24, really going to benefit the player? Free letter rewards evaporated, super spin upgrades proved worthless and the overall reward system turned back to its stingy self. Shame on you for people who want to use this game to stimulate thinking and exercise their brain.
As a VIP, I don’t need all the rewards as it relates to bankruptcy, lose a turn, lucky coin, or more time to play yet many of the tournaments use these “rewards” Can’t you do away with this for VIP’s as the prizes are worthless yet make up a majority of the rewards won by these players? Also, if I have earned any of Vanna’s free letters, why is it that when I get a free play, it still takes away a letter from my rewards if I guess incorrectly. How can that be a free spin when it robs me of a letter reward? I think the game needs some serious tweaks.
Used to be great
This game used to be awesome! Unfortunately now, it’s just got so many problems that don’t seem to be getting better. Instead of me writing a normal review - below is my email to support. I’ll be ecstatic to change my rating and review if it’s treated accordingly.
I downloaded this game awhile back and really enjoyed it. I spent money that I shouldn’t have on diamonds but, I liked the game. Worked really hard getting further on in levels. Then, the problems start. All of which I’ve informed through the contact button on the actual app. This may go to the same place, I don’t know. First, the game started booting me out constantly. Always after I had won. Then, I started getting purchase errors after winning the bonus rounds. This has happened at least 10 times in the last couple days. Now it’s happening just about every single time I play! How are we going to be compensated for this? Honestly, at the very least, I should be getting the boxes that I earned! Or diamonds or something!! Instead I’m being told, “We are aware of the problem. We are working on it. We don’t know when it will be fixed. We can’t decide whether we are going to give compensation or not but thank you”. I really do like this game but it needs to take care of the customers who have spent time and money to get where they are. Thank you!
Customer Support Dire/ feedback always ignored.
Short term it’s great fun, as Scopely WOF have dumbed down $ amounts to pass levels. Clubs are great, random theme games fun & individual H2H challenges good. However as you progress it falls apart. 1. Club level 35 is the maximum level. Any Club tokens won are wasted/lost. 2. The game crashes regularly. 3. Head2Head challenges run out of levels so all you play for is to stop relegation.. you get nothing for winning. 4. Themed challenges are biased. Upper levels require 3x or 4x as many games to reach the end as lower levels for exactly the same rewards. 5. Themed challenge games appear around every 5 regular games. You will need to play over 200 regular games for lower levels and over 400 for upper in a short space of time to reach the same goal. 6. An average player will never make the themes. 7. While you fly through levels as $ amounts are easy, collection of souvenirs will take ages on upper levels. 8. For the serious who reach the top level, you will be waiting ages for a new level. 9. Support is pathetic, never doing anything except quoting stock answers of “we’ll pass it on”. 10. The bottom line is they make money off beginners & ignore long term gamers who highlight issues. Newbies will fall by the wayside as the difficulty & frustrations begin. So enjoy it as it is fun, but don’t expect assistance as problems arise.
Great Game - Technical Fixes NEEDED!
I really enjoy playing this game and leveling up within the different worlds. The club feature is okay, but of course some members don't participate. I agree with other reviews that say it takes too much time and effort to earn diamonds, yet when you want to trade them in for something, it asks for a ton of diamonds. How can you possibly have diamonds needed to make trades/get upgrades with the numbers they ask for... also, the technical difficulties are never-ending. Here are issues I have had: ending the bonus round and the "continue" button not working then I lose my won game and the money and all rewards because I have to close out (the screen just says loading forever), reaching worlds and not being able to retrieve my lifetime goal rewards (making it to Dublin and now to Chicago), and free diamonds being offered by ad watching and then when you click on it to see the ad and get the free diamonds, it says loading (again forever) and you have to close the app. This game is very fun and I enjoy it, but I am SO FRUSTRATED that each time an update happens, something is screwed up in the game - not getting credits for Dublin when it first became available and now with the newest update, users are unable to claim the Chicago passport. 😕
