IGT’s Wheel of Fortune slot has been entertaining players at online casinos since its release in 1996 and thanks to its progressive jackpot feature, it’s also a firm favourite around the world.
In April 2013, it changed the life of an Arizona player at Desert Diamond Casino when it paid out a massive $1,135,558 jackpot. The gentleman in question, known as Mohan N., is planning to use his fortune to help fund his wife’s forthcoming surgery and pay off his children’s student loans.
April 2013 wasn’t just lucky for online fans of this slot, because just a couple of weeks before Mohan N.’s big win, a tourist from New York also snapped up $1.14m, whilst playing Wheel of Fortune at a Las Vegas casino.
The game’s bonus jackpot can only be won during the Wheel Bonus round, where the player must spin the wheel for the chance, to win one of the jackpot amounts shown on-screen.
IGT will be attending the Southern Gaming Summit in Mississippi between 7th and 9th May 2013, where they’ll be unveiling their latest CSI video slot, new video poker games and other new items, including MegaJackpots Game Changers. In the meantime, they’re online casino slots can be found at Mr Green and 888 Games among other sites.
