The mass appeal of Wheel of Fortune® spans generations, making America’s Game® a perennial hit with core lottery players and new demographics. Thanks to their lotteries in Arizona, Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, and Rhode Island, 35 winners of IGT’s Wheel of Fortune® BIG MONEY SPIN second-chance promotion received a four-day, money-can’t-buy experience filled with game show fun, all from entering with a non-winning Wheel of Fortune instant ticket.
On January 7, winners of the BIG MONEY SPIN promotion and their guests arrived at luxury accommodations in Los Angeles, where they took in a VIP Hollywood sightseeing tour and a tour of Sony Studios. At the BIG MONEY SPIN event, each winner spun the iconic Wheel and won a cash prize ranging from $1,000 to $10,000. With all the winners’ names placed in a drawing drum, they then advanced through further spins to arrive at the “puzzleboard round” to receive additional prizes, revealed by the puzzleboard. One winner from North Carolina won $25,000, one from Kentucky won $50,000, and a winner from Ohio won $100,000. The $100,000 winner proceeded to the final, BIG MONEY SPIN round, where she spun the Wheel again to reveal a 1X multiplier, taking her final prize to $107,500, including the amount won in the first round.
The second of two BIG MONEY SPIN events will take place in April, with 33 more winners representing their lotteries in Arizona, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island, and West Virginia. The BIG MONEY SPIN second-chance promotion was built around IGT’s signature White Glove Service, giving players VIP treatment and creating a close connection with their lotteries through fun, player-driven experiences.
