How To Play


Pick letters to guess the phrase.

A hint is shown about the hidden words and you can only change your wager upgrades before starting the new phrase.

Spin the wager wheel to place a bet, and use the letter wheel to guess a letter. If it matches, you get your bet back plus the wager for each letter found in the phrase.

You can only claim your winnings after completing both words, or you can let it roll and solve another pair.


  • Brandon's Pro-Tip: If you are sure about a letter, save it for when you spin a high wager.
  • Tyler Says: Vowels are safe guesses at the beginning.
  • Tip from Nate: The first word is always an adjective, the second a noun.
  • If you can't afford the wager the spinner lands on, the game will end.
