The audience shouts “WHEEL-OF-FORTUNE!” during every episode of this iconic TV show, and the chant is part of IGT’s newest, entertaining eInstant game, Wheel of Fortune® Prize Burst. Tapping into one of the most successful syndicated programs in history, IGT also incorporated other iconic aspects of the show into its latest eInstant game to delight fans. Players will feel like they stepped into the game show with familiar icons, sounds, and of course, the wheel prize spin.
This exciting eInstant is the latest product in IGT’s long association with the Wheel of Fortune brand. In 1996, IGT introduced the first Wheel of Fortune® Slots game and continued to evolve content into the lottery space. IGT’s Wheel of Fortune on the Road eInstant launched globally in 2019 and has been played across the U.S. and as far away as New Zealand. “We’ve had tremendous success with the Wheel of Fortune brand,” said Derek Levesque, IGT Director eInstant Game Development. “In the U.S., millions of transactions have been made on this game to date, and it remains among the top games that new players try within their first week of play. We expect the new Wheel of Fortune Prize Burst to follow suit.”
“We’re excited to share this game with lottery customers and their players,” said Chris Costello, IGT Head of iLottery eInstant Studio. “We took care to incorporate some of the most popular Wheel of Fortune brand elements and pack the base game with instant win features and an iconic ‘spin the wheel’ bonus round. What makes this game extra special is the innovative Prize Burst feature. When revealed, players can turn one to four non-winning plays into winning plays. It adds an extra opportunity for players to win.”
“Even the transition to the bonus round feels like an episode of the TV show, giving the player the feeling of excitement experienced by TV show contestants,” Costello added. “We looked at every detail to make this a fun, on-brand experience for players.”
When a player reveals a gold star, it triggers the bonus game consisting of several spins of three concentric wheels. Players receive six spins, with the opportunity for three more to complete the bonus round. Players can win up to three different prizes by collecting symbols for trips and luxury items that echo the TV show.
The Wheel of Fortune brand historically appeals to all lottery players, and the new game joins a host of other popular eInstant content and retail instant games created by IGT. With the release of more than 10 unique Wheel of Fortune instant games in the past year alone, lotteries can provide their players with a true omnichannel experience to leverage the brand at both retail and online and to encourage play across channels.
