International Game Technology is set to reveal its “first-ever” omnichannel Wheel of Fortune linked progressive for the US at next week’s SBC Summit North America 2021.
Taking place on November 30 to December 2 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, New Jersey, IGT will showcase its “industry-first” technology which will link its digital Wheel of Fortune Gold Spin Triple Gold game with all land-based Wheel of Fortune $1 wide area progressives.
This will result in sharing the entire wide area progressive jackpot liquidity between land and online casinos across New Jersey, whilst providing players “additional choice and convenience” for when and where they want to play.
“IGT is once again breaking barriers in the digital gaming space with the soon-to-launch US omnichannel Wheel of Fortune linked progressive,” said Enrico Drago, IGT CEO digital & betting.
“We are combining proven technology with the most successful slot brand of all time to create a powerful jackpot liquidity pool that engages players and delivers life-changing wins for New Jersey residents playing across channels. SBC Summit attendees will be among the first in the US to see how the technology works.”
IGT notes that its technology will also give players in New Jersey the opportunity to vie for the same Wheel of Fortune jackpots that are typically only found in land-based casinos, across all three gaming channels: land-based, mobile and online.
In addition to the debut of the US omnichannel game at the SBC Summit, IGT will also be showing Fortune Coin Boost!, a sequel to the company’s digital game in 2020, Fortune Coin. Other PlayCasino games on display will include Great Bear and MegaJackpots Elephant King.
Moreover, IGT PlaySports will showcase its new CrystalFlex and PeakBarTop Flex cabinets and multigame software offer. These new products include the Game King X content and enable players to watch their favourite sports, place sports wagers, enjoy slots, and play video poker and keno all on the same gaming machine, using the same on-machine funds.
