The team behind Wildz is at it again. Following the successful launch of the second brand, Caxino, the Rootz team is busy working on their third brand, Wheelz Casino. Returning to their signature zed-based naming, Wheelz is feature-packed and built on a Rootz platform that has been the focus of constant upgrades and improvements over the past few years.
Wheelz will be the first casino brand from Rootz to be built from the start with its latest machine learning and CRM platform. This means that Wheelz customers will receive a level of customisation and responsiveness like never before.
Oh, and the Hoff is on board...
Wheelz Launch Date
Right now, we expect Wheelz to launch sometime in December 2020 or January 2021. We do know that much of the work is already complete, but establishing an online casino is a complicated process. With the current COVID restrictions and the holidays approaching, a January launch would seem more likely. Of course, we had our doubts that Caxino would be released on time considering its development began just as COVID was strongly affecting business in Europe. Not only did Caxino launch on time, but even a bit earlier than most of the more ambitious projections.
As more specific details become available, check out this website and rootz.com for further information.
It has been rumoured that Wheelz will launch with an introductory offer of a 100% bonus up to €300 plus 100 free spins. At this time, there is no detail on the games that will be available in the introductory offer. If Wildz and Caxino are a guide, Wheelz will offer up an excellent selection of classic favourites and trending hits. The 100% bonus should function as it does in the sister casinos. In the case of Wheelz, up to €300 on your first deposit will be matched 100% with bonus money. This bonus money will have the standard 35x wagering requirement, which means that bonus money must be wagered 35x to convert bonus funds into real money that is available to withdraw.
Being a Rootz brand, players should expect plenty of other offers including deposit and get free spins promotions, double speed on the progress bar, cashback campaigns, money drops, and more.
Design-wise, Wheelz is expected to be structurally similar to Wildz and Caxino. Following their philosophy of clean, clutter-free design, the team at Rootz opted to build Wheelz on a common framework and focus their efforts on the general design, marketing, and creating new types of promotions and offers.
While it's challenging to provide a full review at this time, there are a handful of clues that give us a sense of what Wheelz will be like.
- Payments: Considering the similarity of payment methods across Wildz and Caxino, we would expect that Wheelz will include the same payment types in each market.
- Bonuses: Rootz brands are well-known for frequent campaigns with loads of free spins. There is no reason to assume that philosophy will change with the Wheelz brand.
- Customer Support: Wheelz Casino will offer 24/7 LiveChat and email customer support in most languages
Wheelz is expected to offer the full games library that can currently be found over at Wildz except for branded games like Wildz Blackjack. It is expected that the Wheelz games catalogue will launch with more than 1200 titles.
Please be aware that a new regulatory framework for Germany has come into effect as of October 15, 2020. To comply, Rootz has removed Live Casino, table games, and jackpot games from their German casino. Rootz is fully committed to obtaining a German license when that process is made available by the German government. When complete, we hope to bring these games back to Wheelz and the entire Rootz family of online casino brands.
David Hasselhoff in the Mix
We've been told to look out for "Special Hoffers" with Wheelz having made a marketing deal with David Hasselhoff. At this time, it remains to be seen what role Mr Hasselhoff will fill regarding Wheelz, but we can surely expect television spots and web ads featuring David Hasselhoff at a minimum.
There are whispers that Wheelz will include a bonus feature related to David Hasselhoff, but details are a bit sketchy at this time. What we do know is Mr Hasselhoff has been signed, a video/photoshoot has already occurred in Los Angeles, California, USA, and the Wheelz design team is busy incorporating David Hasselhoff into their designs. Absent that, the team at Wheelz has been relatively quiet about their plans for the Knight Rider star.
