Wheel of Fortune Free Play Tips, Cheats & Guide to Make Your Spins Count and Earn More Rewards

We’ve been really big on word games lately, and this one is based on a popular TV game show that, in its own way, involves word games. Wheel of Fortune Free Play is a new game from Scopely that you can now download for your Android or iOS device, and it does indeed come with a lot of the elements that made Wheel of Fortune such a big hit for multiple decades. The game invites you to be a contestant on the Emmy-winning show, albeit in mobile form, as you guess the letters on word puzzles written by Wheel of Fortune’s producers themselves. You can win “cool, collectible” prizes, challenge your friends and family to play via Facebook, or challenge random players from around the world. And in case you’re wondering, the game features the show’s iconic host and letter-turner respectively, Pat Sajak and Vanna White.

Those who regularly watch the game show may have an idea of what to do in order to make the most out of those puzzles and complete them in the soonest possible time. But in case you’re not a fan of the show, or simply need some tips and tricks to help you get ahead, we recommend this Wheel of Fortune Free Play strategy guide, as we’ve got all the tips you need to read before spinning that wheel and guessing those letters.

1. Don’t Buy Vowels Too Early

As you may know if you’re familiar with Wheel of Fortune, you can buy a vowel at most points of the round. But you shouldn’t jump at the chance to buy a vowel right away. Instead, wait for a few turns, in hopes that your opponents will buy a vowel instead, thereby costing them some of the money they’ve earned, while filling in more of the puzzle to your benefit. In fact, you should try avoid buying a vowel for as long as possible, as that will allow your stash to remain untouched, and increase your chances of winning, even by a bit.

2. To Buy Or Not To Buy?

Then again, there are some players who are successful enough when they buy vowels whenever the opportunity first arises. The justification is that if the wheel lands on Bankrupt, you’ll lose everything right away, so you might as well strike while the iron is hot, and buy vowels as long as you can afford it. We agree to this to a certain extent, though you’ll need to make sure you’ve got enough money in reserve to improve your chances of winning, all while crossing your fingers that you don’t spin and get bankrupt.

3. Don’t Use Hints Till The Bonus Rounds

Although the term “bonus round” suggests something optional that you shouldn’t pay much attention to, it’s actually a very important part of the game in Wheel of Fortune Free Play. Once you’ve entered the consonants and vowels the first time, you don’t have any contingency measures, and you’re left with some hints that you can use to help you win the bonus rounds; extra hints cost 150 diamonds for three of them, should you run out. Take note that if you lose a bonus round, your combo meter for that part of the game will reset, and you won’t get the rewards you can normally expect to get.

4. What Makes The Bonus Round So Important Anyway?

For a clearer explanation of what’s in it for you when you play the bonus rounds, these are the rounds where you have the best chances of earning a lot of money and collecting a lot of souvenirs. You want to collect as many souvenirs as possible, because if you collect them all, you will unlock a passport, which would then allow you to unlock a new destination. By completing a second collection of them, you will get a special frame surrounding your profile, which doesn’t sound practical, but nonetheless helps spice things up. And lastly, a third collection of souvenirs would get you free diamonds, which are the game’s premium currency.

5. The Voting System Is Also Important

Scopely wants to know what you think of the puzzles available in Wheel of Fortune Free Play. After all, they do claim that the puzzles were created by the game show’s producers. That said, the company lets you vote for puzzles once a round is complete, and you can vote up if you liked it, or vote down if you didn’t. It may sound like something insignificant and something you shouldn’t spend any time on, but we suggest that you vote up or vote down, so the game’s makers know which puzzles are the most enjoyable and the best to solve. That could make the game more challenging if it isn’t, or conversely, simplify things if the puzzles are just too complex.

As a bonus tip regarding the voting system, there’s another good reason for you to vote, and that’s your daily goals. Most of the time, voting a specific number of times will be among the requirements for these goals, so don’t hesitate to make your vote count and help Scopely out.

6. Which Consonants Are The Best To Guess?

The most commonly used consonants in English are the following, in order: T, N, S, H, R, D, L, and C. Normally, we get good results for the letter “S,” as it can be used to designate plural forms, though “R” and “N” are also good guesses when a round is just starting. As long as you choose some of those letters while trying to solve the puzzles, you should be in good shape in most of them.

7. Change Category Only When Needed

You will be given the option to change the category of the puzzle before a game starts. Doing this the first time won’t cost you anything, but subsequent category changes will force you to pay diamonds. Make sure you only take advantage of this option if you’re truly stumped, and save your diamonds as much as possible, as you may need them for the bonus rounds, or to buy certain items that will help you in the game.

8. How To Earn More Diamonds

As we mentioned earlier, diamonds are the game’s premium currency. They are usually available via in-app purchase, though there are ways you can get more diamonds without having to pay anything. Simply connecting your game to Facebook, which also allows you to play against your contacts who also play the game, will get you 300 diamonds for free. You can also complete the free offers in the in-app store, and while some are tricky, you can complete a lot of them to get free diamonds.

9. Complete More Goals

The game comes with two different types of goals which you can complete while playing it – daily goals and lifetime goals. The daily goals, of course, are only good for one day, and reset the next day, while lifetime goals will be around as long as you play the game. It’s the dailies that you want to focus on, as those will normally give you better and more attractive rewards in the form of diamonds. There are some lifetime goals, though, that are difficult enough to justify a big diamond prize as well.
