Super wheelspins in Forza Horizon 4 are a great way to win three rare prizes at once. The fact that Super Wheelspins are awarded for free in Forza Horizon 4 along the storyline is just cherry on top.
One of Microsoft’s most popular and successful games, Forza Horizon 4, has millions of players worldwide playing across both Xbox One and PC thanks to the increasingly popular Xbox Game Pass program.
Most people love it, and I’m no different. Once I started receiving these Super Wheelspin chances quite regularly with the ability to win three crazy prizes, I haven’t been happier.
Forza Horizon 4 players can receive a Super Wheelspin when they level up in Horizon Life or purchase some specific Player Houses. You can also buy one directly from the Forzathon Shop for 150FPs.
Super Wheelspins in FH4 sound quite good on paper, but what are the odds of you hitting that jackpot of three simultaneous rare prizes? Incidentally, statistics has you covered.
1. How Do The Super Wheelspins Work?
Think of the Wheelspins as a slot machine type reel – you pull the lever and let destiny decide your prize. Sounds a bit bland? Well, it is. Super Wheelspins take this to the next level, and instead of one prize reel, the slot machine has three different prizes!
So, you as the player get to win three different prizes, and if that was not enough, these prizes are supposedly from the rare pool (or so they say).
This all sounds well and good, but does it work as so in reality? Are people getting that hidden AMC 1970 Rebel from just one spin and how are you supposed to get to the actual spin in-game?
Try the Super Wheelspin yourself!
You can get Super Wheelspins through various methods while you’re in-game, be it through the natural progression system or straight from the store.
Method 1: Earn Spins though My Horizon Life
My Horizon Life may sound a bit vague at first, but at its core, it keeps track of your progress in various events happening in Forza Horizon 4.
Be it road or off-road racing events, all wins and losses are kept logged in your My Horizon Life. As you progress through the levels, you will earn free Super Wheelspins; you can also earn them by upgrading your various in-game stats.
Method 2: Purchase Houses
If the My Horizon Life grind is not to your test and you have an inner real-estate spirit, you can instead buy specific properties in FH4 to earn Super Wheelspins. Derwent Mansion, as a matter of fact, gifts you two super wheelspins for a total of 1,500,000 Credits.
Method 3: Buy super wheelspins for 150FP
This, by far, is the easiest method to get Super Wheelspins and requires you to have enough FP. Head over to the Forzathon Shop and buy a Super Wheelspin for just 150FP.
All this sounds good, but what about once you get the Super Wheelspin – can you win something rare, or is just smoke and mirrors.
What are your odds of winning rare items at Super Wheelspins?
Obviously, the Super Wheelspins are just chance-based game mechanics. Most of the time, these reels are based on random numbers generated using sophisticated algorithms, so there’s no way to predict what you’re getting.
Still, the helpful folks over at the r/ForzaHorizon (namely u/CrazyCatHusband) compiled some interesting observations.
From a total of 100 Super Wheelspins, the following prizes were collected (bear in mind this mainly speaks in terms of credit value):
- Total Credits: 29,611,500
- Average Credits per Slot: 98,705
- Average per Super Wheelspin: 296,115
Expanding the data beyond just Credits yields the following data:
- Total Credits: 10,805,000
- Average Credit Reward: 49,793
- Number Of Cars: 83 (27.7%)
- Total Auto Show Value: 40,322,000
- Average Auto Show Value: 485,807
- Number Of Rare Cars: 4 (1.3%)
- Number Of Forza Edition Cars: 11 (3.7%)
- The Most Common Rewards Were A Bentley Continental Fe, Alumi Craft Fe, And Ferrari Ff With 2 Each.
These stats once again prove that there’s no beating the RNG gods. You might just get gloves and mittens in a few spins but when you play long enough one thing is clear: big rewards are waiting for you behind the Super Wheelspin for sure.
What about the 200 Free Super Wheelspins?
Playground Games recently got themselves a PR nightmare when they accidentally pushed out 200 (you read that correctly) free Super Wheelspins to some players.
They soon realized their error and stopped the wheelspin claim, but others who were lining to claim their free spins were furious. That’s just some tough luck, but it is confirmed that there will be no 200 free Super Wheelspins anytime soon.
