Online gambling and sports betting operator BetMGM has partnered up with International Game Technology (IGT) to launch Wheel of Fortune Online Casino, the first brand-led online casino in North America.
Initially available in New Jersey, the new online casino will be based on the long-running US television gameshow, Wheel of Fortune.
Players will have access to a range of branded slot titles, as well as a series of additional themed games and features. IGT had been providing Wheel of Fortune-branded slots to the market for a number of years.
“We are thrilled to bring Wheel of Fortune Online Casino to players in New Jersey where they can now play for real money and experience the excitement of the beloved game show on their phones,” MGM chief executive Adam Greenblatt said.
“We have a great alliance with Wheel of Fortune and IGT and look forward to offering our players innovative and diverse selections of gaming options.”
IGT’s chief executive of digital and betting, Enrico Drago, added: “IGT’s Wheel of Fortune slots have been entertaining players for decades as the most successful slot theme of all time.
“We are incredibly excited to partner with BetMGM on the evolution of this celebrated theme and witness it break new ground to become the first US brand-led online casino where players can enjoy their favorite IGT Wheel of Fortune slots games.”
