If you see the Wheel of Fortune event you might think “oh yeah, just another random way to make money”, but in fact it’s actually a place where you can get the biggest profit for your gems, even if you’re F2P and don’t spend any money on the game.
Here in this guide for the Wheel of Fortune, I’d like to share you an interesting strategy that will give you a nice payoff, if you do it right.
Wheel of Fortune Schedule
There’s no fixed schedule when the Wheel of Fortune appears in Rise of Kingdoms, but it’s roughly every 2-3 weeks so you can expect it quite frequently and save up your Gems for it.
In terms of featured commanders, there’s also quite a fixed schedule how the featured commanders will appear:
You can determine by your kingdom age how the Wheel of Fortune will cycle the commanders:
- 24 Days: Random Commander
- 38 Days: 3x Richard
- 80 Days: Random Commander
- 94 Days: 3x Yi Seong-Gye
- 136 Days: Random Commander
- 150 Days 3x Genghis Khan
- 192 Days: Random Commander
- 206 Days: 3x Alexander
- 248 Days: Random Commander
- 262 Days: 3x Edward of Woodstock
- 304 Days: Random Commander
- 318 Days: 3x Takeda Shingen
- 360 Days: Random Commander
- 374 Days: 3x Guan Yu
- 416 Days: Random Commander
- 430 Days: Ramesses
- 472 Days: Random Commander
- 496 Days: Yi Sun-sin
- 538 Days: Random Commander
- 552 Days: William I
- 594 Days: Random Commander
- 608 Days: Harald Sigurdsson
Please mind! The days can be a little off but this is the general route all kingdoms will follow.
So, you can somehow expect what commander comes next and save up your gems for that.
But let’s now talk about the best strategy to use and how to get the most out of it with little gems.
Best Strategy For The Wheel of Fortune
AS I said, even as a player that doesn’t spend any money on Rise of Kingdoms, you can make a great outcome here and get a nice amount of legendary sculptures.
You can get 5-10 legendary sculptures for 4,800 Gems in total – compare that with 10,000-20,000 Gems you would need for them in the VIP Shop!
Please mind, you should not do this strategy if you have less than 4,800 Gems. If you do not have that many, save some Gems up and wait for the next Wheel of Fortune!
Now here’s what you do step-by-step:
Day #1 – Use your Free Spin & 1 Discount Spin
On the first day you will get one free spin that won’t cost you anything. Do that now and also use 400 Gems for the first “paid” spin.
Day #2 – Use 1 Discount Spin
Today you’re using the 50% Discount Spin for 400 Gems again.
Day #3 – Use 1 Discount Spin & 5x Regular Spin + 1 Spin
Today is the day where you need to get 10 total spins. You also have one 50% Discount Spin for 400 Gems that you do.
After that, use one 5x Spin as this is cheaper than doing them one-by-one for 3,200 Gems.
You’re now at 9 spins and you need to do one regular spin now.
You now have 10 spins and you will get the bonus chest that will give you 5x Legendary Sculptures for the featured commander.
It’s very likely that you have already gotten, depending on your luck, 2-5 Legendary Scultures form spinning the Wheel of Fortune so in total you will get 7-10 Legendary Sculptures.
This is the strategy and I hope you understand why it makes sense to save enough Gems to do the extra spins to get a total of 10 spins, otherwise, it won’t make sense because you won’t get the bonus sculptures that you get from the Wheel of Fortune.
Of course, if you’re spending money on the game you can take it further to get the next spin chest unlocked that will also give you 5x Legendary Scultures for the featured commander. Do only do it if you can reach those guaranteed ones, otherwise the profit will depend on your luck (but probabilities here in the Wheel of Fortune are actually pretty nice, to be honest)
