Sony Pictures Television and International Game Technology (IGT) are celebrating 25 years of Wheel of Fortune! The two recently announced that the top-performing video slots game has been entertaining players around the world for a quarter of a century. Initially released by IGT in Reno in 1996, the game has turned into a firm favourite amongst players who are looking for a quality source of reliable entertainment. Wheel of Fortune is famously known for affording players great jackpot prizes.

Ever since it first launched, Wheel of Fortune has shaped the casino industry through its entertainment offerings and compelling features. Games from the video slots series stand out from others with the iconic sounds of the Wheel of Fortune theme. The game has also earned the nickname of “The Millionaire-Making Machine” and has established itself as a firm favourite amongst players as it offers the opportunity to win life-altering jackpots.

IGT’s Hallmark Of Gaming

Renato Ascoli, the IGT’s CEO of Global Gaming, noted that the Wheel of Fortune video slots have become a hallmark of IGT’s gaming portfolio. He said that based on the merit and performance of the game, it has changed the gaming industry. The partnership between Sony Pictures Television and IGT has helped the game evolved into something of a pop culture icon and even after 25 years, players are still drawn to it.

Vanna White, the hostess of Wheel of Fortune, noted that it has been an absolute honour to work side-by-side with the IGT team in developing content for the video slots. She said that she still marvels at the brilliance of the game whenever she walks through a casino and hears the game’s iconic siren.

Wheel Of Fortune’s Achievements

During the course of the past 25 years, IGT and Sony Pictures Television’s Wheel of Fortune video slots  game has made a lasting impact on the gaming industry. The game’s achievements to date include creating over 1,100 millionaires, delivering over $3.3 billion in rewards, creating more than 250 types of slots, and awarding an impressive $14.4 million to one lucky player in Biloxi in 2009.

Suzanne Prete, Sony Pictures Television’s Senior Vice President of Global Licensing and Brand Management, said that for 25 years, IGT has been able to artfully capture the fun, excitement, and authenticity of the Wheel of Fortune brand through its world-class portfolio. The capacity that the video slot has to entertain players across a wide range of generations, channels and locations has made it something truly special.
