IGT unveils first US omnichannel WoF linked progressive

IGT is set to unveil the omnichannel Wheel of Fortune linked progressive for the US at the SBC Summit North America 2021, Nov 30 – Dec 2. For the first time in the US, IGT will link its digital Wheel of Fortune Gold Spin Triple Gold game with all land-based Wheel of Fortune $1 wide area progressives. This technology will also give players in New Jersey the opportunity to vie for the same large-scale Wheel of Fortune jackpots that are typically only found in land-based casinos, across all three gaming channels: land-based, mobile and online. IGT has proven this technology with its Powerbucks link in Canada, which became the first omnichannel connected jackpot in the world when it debuted in 2016.

Enrico Drago, IGT CEO digital & betting, said: “IGT is once again breaking barriers in the digital gaming space with the soon-to-launch US omnichannel Wheel of Fortune linked progressive,”

“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 U.S. to see how the technology works.”
