This is the first link IGT has released in the US through its Wheel of Fortune slots.

Supplier IGT has launched its first US omnichannel wide area progressive (WAP) jackpot in New Jersey through the Wheel of Fortune slots link. The company said the release will allow players throughout the state to spin for large-scale wins on land-based, mobile and online versions of its Wheel of Fortune slots.  

IGT Global Gaming COO Nick Khin commented, "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 link gives New Jersey players access to all IGT’s Wheel of Fortune $1 games that include 18 varieties of themes and a $500,000 jackpot reset value.

IGT President of iGaming Gil Rotem reflected on the expanding iGaming market and said he is hopeful the recent launch can potentially additional New Jersey players.

He 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."
