International Game Technology (IGT) has launched a Wheel of Fortune slots game in New Jersey, which features the first omnichannel wide area progressive (WAP) jackpot available in the US.
The WAP link connects all Wheel of Fortune games in the Garden State, across all 18 of the unique themes, and offers a $500,000 jackpot reset value.
Nick Khin, IGT COO at Global Gaming, said: “IGT is thrilled to offer our customers in New Jersey the first omnichannel jackpot in the US as a means to engage players across platforms and offer another play-driving Wheel of Fortune slots jackpot.
“Based on the continued success of IGT’s pioneering omnichannel WAP solution for Canada, Powerbucks, I anticipate our omnichannel link for New Jersey will drive performance, and be readily embraced by operators and players alike.”
The original omnichannel progressive jackpot released by IGT was the Powerbucks link, which was launched in the Canadian markets in 2016.
Gil Rotem, IGT President of iGaming, said: “With the continued growth of the iGaming market in the US, there could not be a better time to enhance our IGT PlayDigital portfolio for New Jersey with a compelling omnichannel jackpot.
“IGT’s omnichannel version of Wheel of Fortune Triple Gold™ Gold Spin™ slots offers an attractive, fast-growing jackpot, and has already demonstrated outstanding performance results and effectiveness as a player-acquisition tool.
“Only IGT is experienced in offering wide-area progressive links to offer a transformative, cross-platform gaming experience.”
