Editor’s note

This review is based on the operator’s current offer. Data and analysis below are accurate at the time of publishing, but may be subject to change.

Expert verdict

Fortune Wheelz is not a bad casino, but it struggles to compete with better, more established brands out there.

The 96 games from one software provider was always going to be a problem, but Fortune Wheelz could have made up for this with excellence in other areas. For example, Fortune Wheelz could have invested in great customer support or safety features, but instead it falls short by having no FAQ section and almost no Responsible Gambling (RG) tools.

Similarly, it starts strong with six ongoing promos only to stumble when you realize the Fortune Wheelz welcome bonus has no Fortune Coins available, meaning you’re forced to make a payment to try for cash prizes.

This is unfortunately A1 Development’s weakest casino to date, and you’ll probably have a better time at the company’s other sweepstakes casinos, these being Funrize, NoLimitCoins, and Tao Fortune.

State differences

Fortune Wheelz sweeps casino is available in 46 US states. There are four states, referred to as “excluded jurisdictions” on Fortune Wheelz’s site, where the sweepstake casino is unavailable: Idaho, Michigan, Washington, and Wyoming.

There are no differences in Fortune Wheelz’s platform between the eligible jurisdictions.

How does Fortune Wheelz sweeps casino work?

Fortune Wheelz has three types of virtual currency available: Gold Coins (GC), Fortune Coins (FC), and Winnings. GC and FC can be used as entry fees for the casino’s games. You can get both currencies through the various Fortune Wheelz promos, payment packages, or mail requests.

GC and FC can only be used on Fortune Wheelz’s site, and have no value other than as an entry fee for the various games. They cannot be used to redeem any prizes.

FC can be used to access Promotional Play, where FC can be staked on casino games. Any currency won here is converted to Winnings — this currency can never be wagered and can be acquired only through staking FC in Promotional Play.

Winnings have a value of 1 to $1, and once you have 25, you can redeem them for cash prizes or gift cards.

Fortune Wheelz casino bonuses — 250,000 GC

Fortune Wheelz offers new players a welcome bonus of 250,000 GC, as well as two first-purchase payment promos:

  • 300,000 GC and 1,750 FC for $9.99, at a 75% increase
  • 900,000 GC and 4,000 FC for $29.99, at a 33% increase

Players who make eight purchases can also spin the Wheel of Treasure, which hands out free GC and FC. There is a second spin wheel, called the Wheel of Fortune, that hands out free GC and FC every 12 hours. This means you can get currency without making purchases, though you need to verify your phone number for this spin wheel to become available.

Fortune Wheelz also offers a refer-a-friend offer, granting you 500,000 GC and 2,000 FC once your referral makes payments amounting to $19.99 or more. Your friend will also receive 400,000 GC and 500 FC.

You can apply for promos to be sent to you directly through SMS on your phone. Their Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages also regularly post competitions with the chance at earning more GC and FC. No Fortune Wheelz promo codes are required for any of the promos.

Bonus rating

78/100 Plenty of paid promos, few free promos
  • Six ongoing promos
  • High-value refer-a-friend promo
  • No FC in welcome bonus
  • No VIP program

Fortune Wheelz could have easily gotten a higher score in this section. With six ongoing promos, it beats out even established brands, like Chumba, with five ongoing promos.

The problem comes down to one word — value. The welcome bonus offers no FC, so you can’t try for cash prizes in the beginning. Of the 16 options on the Wheel of Fortune, seven of them also don’t offer FC. I had an unlucky roll in the beginning and had to wait 12 hours to hopefully get some FC.

As for the other promos, they all involve purchases. The payment promos and Wheel of Treasure have excellent value but require purchases. The refer-a-friend offers huge value but also requires a purchase of up to $19.99.

In a world where most sweeps no-purchase casino bonuses are eager to hand out free sweeps currency, Fortune Wheelz stands out as being unnecessarily stingy.

96 Fortune Wheelz sweepstake games

Fortune Wheelz sweeps casino has 96 games on offer. These include 67 slots, 26 jackpots, and three fish games. There are no classic table games or live games at Fortune Wheelz casino.

Games rating

69/100 Small but interesting games library
  • Three unique fish games
  • Loads of jackpots
  • Tiny library
  • Lacks classic table games

Let’s not beat around the bush — 96 games for a sweeps games library is tiny. No matter how you look at it, it’s a small number, especially when you have sweeps casinos like Pulsz hitting 700+ games.

As for the games themselves, there are positive things to say. There are a lot of great jackpots on offer and some fun slots, including a lot of player-favorite Hold ‘N’ Link slots.

The fish games are a standout, letting you shoot fish to get coins, with each bullet costing currency and each fish giving you more based on a multiplier. They’re a load of fun and worth trying out.

Still, a few more games, especially some classic table games like blackjack and roulette, could have gone a long way to making this library more varied and worth trying out.

Fortune Wheelz’s NetGame software

Fortune Wheelz sweeps casino has one software provider that powers all of its games — NetGame Entertainment.

Software rating

63/100 Just the one provider available
  • No download required
  • A reputable software provider
  • One software provider
  • No bespoke or live software

If you’re thinking that this section is a little short, that’s ’cause well…it is. There’s not really much to say about a casino that only forks out for one software provider.

Even High 5 Casino, a sweeps casino that exists solely to promote High 5 Games’ in-house software, knows the value of having multiple providers and partners with NetEnt and Pragmatic Play games, two of its biggest competitors. For an established company like A1 Development to only have one provider is, to be blunt, a bit cheap.

That said, NetGame Entertainment is a reputable provider, with fast, glitch-free games that have plenty of unique features. It’s also nice to be able to play instantly with no download required. I’m glad that Fortune Wheelz picked well in this department at least.

Seven transaction methods at Fortune Wheelz

Withdrawal methods

Payments rating

90/100 Plenty of options available
  • Low minimum for redemptions
  • E-wallets available
  • Long redemption times
  • High minimum purchase

I was happy to see so many payment options available at Fortune Wheelz casino. In particular, I liked the variety of methods — cards, e-wallets, bank transfers, and gift cards are all represented.

I was also happy to see the low minimum required for redemptions. It’s hard enough as is to get Winnings, so only needing 25 of them before you can redeem something is a big plus.

My only nitpick is with the redemption times and the high minimum purchase. WOW Vegas has a minimum purchase of only $0.99, so Fortune Wheelz having a minimum purchase of $4.99 is a bit steep. None of these are major problems though, and overall I’m very happy with the payment options on display.

Fortune Wheelz’s safety features

Fortune Wheelz is owned by A1 Development, a reputable company with three other sweeps casinos in its portfolio: Funrize, Tao Fortune, and NoLimitCoins.

Fortune Wheelz boasts a strong 384-bit SSL encryption with ECDSA cryptography, also known as elliptic-curve cryptography, to keep your private information safe.

There is no Responsible Gambling page or section on Fortune Wheelz’s site, and no links to helpful organizations can be found in the header or footer. A conversation with a support agent confirmed there is a self-exclusion tool by request, however, there is no information about this tool on the site and no other RG tools exist.

Safety rating

69/100 Almost no RG tools or information
  • SSL encryption with elliptic-curve cryptography
  • TFA available
  • No RG page available
  • No transparency on sweeps rules

The safety portion of this Fortune Wheelz review has been one of immense emotional highs and lows for me. I was overjoyed to see strong SSL encryption, only to be shocked when I saw the almost complete lack of anything RG-related.

Let’s start with the good. Fortune Wheelz boasts an incredibly powerful 384-bit SSL encryption with ECDSA technology. For context, your standard sweeps casino uses 256-bit with RSA algorithms, which takes roughly 3.31 x 1056 years to crack using current state-of-the-art methods.

Fortune Wheelz going for overkill with the SSL means your data is not only locked up tighter than Fort Knox, but also future-proofed from any potential advancements in hacking technology that might get through your standard encryption.

Now for the bad — no RG section is simply inexcusable. Even though sweeps casinos aren’t obliged to have an RG section, any sweeps casino worth its salt will have at the minimum an RG page with links to helpful organizations and some tools and info available. To have nothing is far below expectations; I expect better from an established company like A1 Development.

Two support options at Fortune Wheelz sweeps casino

If you run into any problems, Fortune Wheelz offers two customer support options: live chat and email. Both options offer 24/7 support. There is no phone support or FAQ section.

Live chat is present as a sticky button on the bottom right of the screen. Clicking on it will bring up a bot that will try to answer your question, but you can be forwarded to an agent on request.

Agents were always available within seconds of requesting one, and answers were clear and detailed.

Support rating

80/100 A great offering ruined by no FAQ
  • 24/7 live chat
  • Quick and detailed responses
  • No FAQ or help center
  • No phone support

I’ve seen plenty of sweeps casinos without phone support or live chat, but I can’t say I’ve ever seen one without an FAQ section. At least, I couldn’t say that up until today.

Having no FAQ section is a bit weird. Most players, myself included, prefer to solve a problem by ourselves before seeking help, plus it’s just helpful to have all the information there and readily available.

That said, the agents were very helpful and eager to answer all my questions. Any confusion, such as my confusion with the lack of safety tools, was immediately resolved. Fortune Wheelz has a solid team on its hands that easily makes up for the lack of support options.

The platform of Fortune Wheelz casino

Fortune Wheelz casino is easy to use, with a quick sign-up process. Users can choose to create an account or sign up through their Google or Facebook accounts.

Usability rating

73/100 A decent platform that lacks some features
  • Fast loading times
  • Advanced game filters
  • No search bar
  • No mobile app

There’s plenty to like about Fortune Wheelz’s platform. The pleasing green-on-yellow color scheme allows for fast traversal, with all the important buttons and filters clearly visible. The site also boasts fast loading times on mobile and desktop, so you can browse quite quickly through the whole site.

My main gripe is with the lack of both a mobile app and a search bar. I get that Fortune Wheelz doesn’t have a lot of games, but a search bar is still helpful. Mobile apps also optimize the site even further for mobile gaming.

Regardless, I’m happy with the platform Fortune Wheelz has and had a good time browsing through the site.
