Who needs Pat and Vanna when you can be master of your own (wheel of) fortune? Arcade1Up has partnered with Sony Pictures Television — which oversees the beloved game show — for the Wheel of Fortune Casinocade Deluxe arcade cabinet. Yahoo Entertainment has your exclusive first look at images and gameplay video for this new release, which is available starting today for $599.99 at Best Buy retail outlets and online.
And this 5-foot cabinet doesn't just let you spin the wheel — you also get to try your luck at popular casino games, including blackjack, three-card poker and deuces wild. The light-up marquee, flashing lights and peppy sounds will give you that Vegas feel without leaving your home.
But serious spinners will obviously focus most of their attention on the four included Wheel of Fortune games. Guess consonants, buy vowels and solve each puzzle to collect your virtual prize money. You can also collect virtual gems that grant you access to new games, as well as exclusive avatars. Use online leaderboards to match your scores with your friends and see which of you would be shaking hands with Pat — or his replacement, Ryan Seacrest — at the end of the game.
We'd like to solve the puzzle: This arcade cabinet looks great.
Arcade1Up's Wheel of Fortune Casinocade Deluxe is available now at Best Buy.
