What many regard as the most popular slot of all time, Wheel of Fortune, is now to appear in omnichannel format.
IGT will unveil a linked progressive for the US at the SBC Summit North America on November 30, held at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, New Jersey.
The latest version of the all-time hit will link the digital Wheel of Fortune Gold Sin Triple Gold game with all land-based Wheel of Fortune $1 wide-area progressives.
They will then share the entire progressive jackpot between land and online casinos across New Jersey. This will give players additional choice and convenience for when and where they enjoy their favourite game.
Players in New Jersey will all have the opportunity to compete for the same large-scale jackpots that are typically only found in land-based casinos. The new format will embrace all three gaming channels, land-based, mobile and online.
IGT has already proved the value of omnichannel format with its Powerbucks link in Canada.
