Gears of Fortune
How’s your general knowledge then, kiddo? Strong? Average? Weak? Well if it’s weak, you better go elsewhere because I’m sorry, this game ain’t for y’all.
Where To Play
Gears of Fortune, eh? Where to bloody start. Well, we’ll start here. It’s like playing on a pub quiz machine where you answer questions for money! How great is that?
I spent many an hour in my youth on a pub quiz machine. Unfortunately, I was inexperienced, uninformed and quite frankly, useless. Quiz games are more for the wily old head, the type of person who has been around a bit and has enough experience of the world to know what’s what. Like how was I, at the ripe old age of
16 18 going to ever know about who the conductor was in On The Buses?
But if you’re an On The Buses expert, or you’re just great at general knowledge quizzes, there can’t be a better game on the internet for you than Gears of Fortune.
It’s not all quiz questions though, it has to be said. The quiz questions only appear when you hit the key symbol, which unlocks one of the ‘Jackpot Gears’ at the top of the screen. The cash cogs are just unlocked by hitting any of the matching symbols.
The biggest win you can hit is £200,000 when you’re wagering £200 per game, but you can leave empty-handed if you hit five hazard symbols before hitting the prize symbols.
So what exactly do you do? Well, once you click start in the middle of the screen, the wheel starts spinning and you start going through the gears.
The wheel will then stop on a symbol. The matching Cash Cog symbols are on the left-hand side with their respective prizes, so for example, if you hit four of the XX symbols before hitting five hazards or any of the other matching symbols, you will win the stipulated prize.
House edge? That depends on how good you are at answering questions, but it hovers around 84% which isn’t all that great, to be honest.
Quizmasters – descend! Actually, wait, quizmasters are the people who ask the questions aren’t they? Let me start again … Masters of quizzes – descend!
This is one of the better gambling games about on the internet today. I bloody love instant win games, I really do. They’re just a bit different from the rest. I mean, you don’t get the chance to answer questions for money with slot games, do you?
So if this sounds like the game for you, and you’re good at general knowledge quizzes (just fyi, there are some very tough questions on here), then jump on into the Gears of Fortune. The potential rewards are huuuuge!
