IGT Extends Agreement with Sony for Wheel of Fortune
IGT has announced a new multi-year contract with Sony Pictures Consumer Products to maintain its slot games based upon one of the most popular game shows of all time, Wheel of Fortune. IGT will also be developing a mobile version of the game and games for its DoubleDown Casino.
Over 200 Wheel of Fortune slot machine themes have been introduced around the world since IGT launched the first. Some of the latest include Triple Cash, Lucky 7s and Wild Gems.
The agreement also means that IGT has licensed the Jeopardy! brand for game development for slot machines, online games for DoubleDown Casino and other online games. When the game is launched on DoubleDown Casino it will be the first time that Jeopardy! will be available on an online social casino in the U.S.
Both Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! are already part of IGT’s MegaJackpots Wide Area Progressive product line. Over the years the series of games have produced thousands of winners with jackpots ranging from $1 million to a world-record slot jackpot of over $39 million.
