Wheel of Fortune Free Play Cheats: Tips & Strategy Guide (iPhone / iPad)


The hit TV game show Wheel of Fortune comes to iOS and Android! Get ready to spin the wheel in Wheel of Fortune Free Play! Join hosts Pat Sajak and Vanna White as you spin the wheel and guess the phrase! You can play the classic game and compare your scores to your Facebook friends, and you can even create your own puzzles for people to solve! We’ve got a couple of puzzle-solving tips and tricks for you with in our Wheel of Fortune Free Play cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide!

1. Save your hints for the bonus rounds!

The bonus rounds are the only rounds of the games that you cannot brute force through. You have no last resorts once you’ve entered your initial consonants and vowels! The only help you can get here are the hints. You can buy 3 extra hints for 150 diamonds if you run out. Hints are extremely valuable because it is important that you win the bonus rounds. Your bonus round combo meter will reset if you lose any bonus round, which means the rewards won’t be as good!

2. Vote on each puzzle!

Don’t ignore the voting system! You can vote for a puzzle at the end of round, declaring if you liked it or not. Additionally, voting a certain number of times on puzzles is usually a part of your daily goals, so don’t skip out on them! It also helps the game pick the best and most fun puzzles to present to the players. Be sure to vote if you’re tired of getting stuck on frustratingly difficult puzzles. Your vote counts!

3. Guess some letters!

The most common letters in the English language excluding vowels are as follows: T, N, S, H, R, D, L, and finally C. We like to guess R and N at the start of a round as we seem to have the best luck using those two letters. Pick any of the other letters if you have no idea what the word could be.

4. Buy vowels often!

Buy some vowels as soon as you get the chance. There’s no point in holding onto your money, as it takes just one land on bankrupt to lose it all. You can buy a vowel immediately after a spin if you have enough money, and you should do so at every chance you get! Alternatively, you can also just wait for your competitors to buy vowels, but pay attention to how far the puzzle is discovered when you do this. The AI players in this game are programmed to automatically solve the puzzle once enough letters have been found, so if you wait too long, you may end up giving the game to your opponents!

Wheel of Fortune Free Play Cheats: Tips & Strategy Guide (iPhone / iPad)


  1. I know their is a trick to winning the fast/quick solve bonus since some players get 18,000 bonus which would mean they solved the puzzle in one try, which is impossible. So are they buying a way to get all the letters in one try? I know you can buy a vowel blaster, but is their one for consenents too? Help, I am tired of solving the puzzle only to lose to someone who solved the puzzle faster with help. We all should have the same opportunities!

    • I’ve noticed the same things. How are they getting larger bonuses that are not available to all? Is that an upgrade the game reveals the more puzzles you solve?

    • I know what your opponent is doing to cheat you on the head to head contests.
      There’s a Wheel of Fortune puzzle solving website that people go to and get the answers. All you have to do is enter the category, number of words, letter in each word, etc. and then the possibly answers are found.
      I had to start using it myself now and then to beat some of the cheaters that I was going up against.

  2. Some people are using wheeloffortunecheats. You’re right. It is impossible to guess every time with only one spin. If I suspect a player is doing that, I won’t play against them in the h2h rounds.

  3. Vanna’s helping hand mixed with the vowel blaster, hints, and a spin along with the perfect storm; if it’s two small words allow the puzzle to be solved in 1 try.

  4. Head to Head best strategy – actually the trick to winning more than $20k or, in many times $80-100k which I’ve done in head to head – is to play it the opposite as you’d play the world tour games. Unless it is a small puzzle (one or three small words), your goal in h2h is NOT to solve it the quickest. Here’s my strategy when the puzzle is long (many words). If the wheel gives me anything under $950, I choose a letter I know the puzzle is likely not to have (q, z, j, k, etc). ONly when the wheel gives me $950 or more do I choose a popular letter and, I try to what I think will be a letter used multiple times in the puzzle for when I hit “multiply”. A puzzler will mostly always hit mulitiply at least once in the game, if not twice. If your score is $9,000 and with multiply you choose a letter that turns over 3 or 4 times, you can see that your score shoots up to $27,000 fast. If you are already at $27k and you hit multiply, even if only one letter turns over, your score increases to $54k. Repeat, receiving the quick solve $2k bonus is NOT your goal for the larger puzzles. Also, remember, rare letters like “C” and “M” can only be earned in the h2h so the longer you play each puzzle, you are bound to at least hit a letter card once. Hope this helps.
