I decided to go with Wheel of Fortune mobile version. Certain incentives like special power-ups or in-game bonuses give some added boost that helps with replayability but I can see how it can lead to obsessing over collecting these as badges and leading to addiction/rage quits. The added social factor also can make something that is purely luck-based very competitive as our own egos to win (especially when betting is involved) can become addictive. The graphics was also quite alluring but can be abused potentially by a desire for escapism
