Are you a bad enough dude to
Wheel of Fortune is a pinball machine based on the American game show of the same name. Its software was never finished due to poor sales and programmer Keith Johnson being laid off from Stern Pinball, and as a result there are lots of unused assets and game rules.
The game has Trip Multiball modes which are started by either solving Prize Puzzles or winning "Trip" wedges off the Wheel. Each Trip Multiball takes place in a different location with its own music and display effects. The latest 5.0 revision has four Trip Multiballs: Chicago, Nashville, Africa, and Australia. Unused music tracks reveal that eight more - Sturgis, Hawaii, Jamaica, Las Vegas, Mexico, Spain, the Pacific Northwest, and Area 51 - were planned.
Sturgis Trip Multiball
A theme centered around motorcycle riding in South Dakota.
Hawaii Trip Multiball
A surfing theme inspired by the Beach Boys.
Jamaica Trip Multiball
Some steel drum music.
Las Vegas Trip Multiball
This trip would've taken place at the Pinball Hall of Fame in Las Vegas, Nevada, which explains the old-school pinball chimes.
Mexico Trip Multiball
For some reason, this track is cut off when accessed in Pinball Browser. David Thiel, who composed the music of this game, shared the full track here.
Spain Trip Multiball
A trip centered around the running of the bulls event in Pamplona, Spain.
Pacific Northwest Trip Multiball
A "find Bigfoot" mode that doubles as a reference to White Water, another Dennis Nordman-designed pinball that also features Bigfoot.
Area 51 Trip Multiball
Pat Sajak sends you off to find some aliens, because why not?
