Since 1996, one of the more prominent sounds on every casino slot floor in America has been the famous audience chant “Wheel… of… FORTUNE!” coming from a parade of slot games centered on the iconic TV game show, which just entered a remarkable 40th season on the air.
With Wheel of Fortune, slot manufacturer IGT ushered in the age of themed slots, and the age of the wheel bonus. Though rival Bally had introduced a similar wheel game called Wheel of Gold a year or so earlier, the addition of the game-show theme, tying the spin of the roulette-style wheel to the well-loved TV sequence in which contestants spin a wheel, instantly gave the wheel bonus a permanent home on the slot floor.
BetMGM, the iGaming site hosted by MGM Resorts International and Entain Group, is banking on the popularity of the more than 250 individual Wheel of Fortune slot games launched over the past 26-plus years to sustain the new branded Wheel of Fortune Casino, now live at WheelOfFortuneCasino.com and available for download as an app on both Android and iOS.
New casino customers at BetMGM can create a Wheel of Fortune Casino account to claim your Welcome Offer and get your puzzle-solving venture started. Your first deposit will be matched 100%, up to $2,500. Additionally, youget an extra $25 Bonus Dollars.
Several Wheel of Fortune Slots to Choose
The site features all the standard casino games found at BetMGM, but featured prominently are the Wheel of Fortune games, with the site’s home page presenting eight featured Wheel titles, no doubt with plans to rotate these featured games regularly. Along with the games themselves will be a continuous rotation of Wheel of Fortune-branded slots and promos.
Clicking “Promotions” on the site’s home page takes you to the first of those promos. TV show cohost Vanna White presents the first Wheel of Fortune Welcome Offer. It is a 100% match on the opening deposit up to $2,500, along with $25 in Bonus Dollars.
“We are thrilled to bring Wheel of Fortune Online Casino to players in New Jersey,” said Adam Greenblatt, chief executive officer of BetMGM. “They can now play for real money and experience the excitement of the beloved game show on their phones. We have a great alliance with Wheel of Fortune and IGT. We look forward to offering our players innovative and diverse selections of gaming options.”
“Over the last 40 years, the Wheel of Fortune brand has been brought to life in a diverse range of products. That includes IGT’s extremely successful Wheel of Fortune slots,” added Suzanne Prete, executive vice president of game shows for Wheel producer Sony Pictures Television. “Now we’re excited to see BetMGM build on that success and take an innovative approach to bring the game to more players by launching the brand’s first online casino in the U.S.”
“IGT’s Wheel of Fortune slots have been entertaining players for decades as the most successful slot theme of all time,” said Enrico Drago, CEO digital & betting, IGT. “We are incredibly excited to partner with BetMGM on the evolution of this celebrated theme. It will break new ground to become the first U.S. brand-led online casino where players can enjoy their favorite IGT Wheel of Fortune slot games.”
