The Horizon Wheelspin is obtained each time the player achieves a new driver level. Once activated, the reel will spin at a very high speed before slowing down and stopping at a prize.
Prizes can either be credits or a new car, although the wheelspin may feature a greater proportion of car prizes than credits.
In Forza Horizon, players get to spin the prize wheel each time they reach a new driver level in multiplayer.
Forza Horizon 2
In Forza Horizon 2, players get to spin the prize wheel each time they reach a new driver level in either single player or multiplayer. ANNA will say "You've leveled up!" every time the player gets a chance to spin the prize wheel.
Having a VIP membership will double credit rewards, and for cars will include their selling credit value.
Forza Horizon 3
In Forza Horizon 3, players get to spin the prize wheel each time they reach a new driver level in either single player or multiplayer. There is a chance that a Horizon Edition car can be won as a prize from an Horizon Wheelspin. At the bottom left of the wheelspin screen, the possible best prize of the wheelspin is shown, usually a high-value car or a Horizon Edition car. Sometimes, it may instead show what a friend won several days ago (either 100,000 CR or a new car).
Players can also purchase a spin attempt through the Skill Shop, either from unlocking them via the Instant Rewards skill set, or from unlocking the "Spin It Again" perk that allows them to purchase spins for 70,000 CR each. Unlocked or purchased wheelspins do not include VIP rewards.
Having a VIP membership will double credit rewards, but car prizes will not include their selling credit value.
Sometimes, the player can win a Midnight Battle-unlockable car via the Horizon Wheelspin. If the player wins a Midnight Battle against that car, they will already receive a second copy of the car with all the body kit and performance upgrades already purchased for them.
If the Horizon Wheelspin gives the player a car they already have, they can choose to either get the car prize's selling credit value or add another copy of that car to their garage.
