The company’s wheel of fortune brand game is based on the popular TV show wheel of fortune. The company has a regulatory license from Sony Picture Television and can take advantage of popular sounds, colors and signals on the show.
Most recently, IGT announced that its Wheel of Fortune Double 3X4X5X Pay Bingo and Wheel of Fortune Five Times Pay Bingo have been introduced to the charity game market in Ontario. The company’s trademark products are currently available in 37 charitable gaming facilities licensed to provide electronic bingo as part of the province’s gaming products.
David Fraser, senior director of charitable gaming at OLG, said introducing IGT’s Wheel of Fortune brand as an electronic cabinet bingo game is a great opportunity to engage new and existing players in the province. According to his opinion, the new addition will provide additional product options for provincial service providers who contribute to improving gameplay and raising charity funds.
David Flinn, vice president of Canada, South America and Central America’s IGT region, said the Wheel of Fortune brand is ready to enhance the player experience in Ontario’s charitable gaming market. He also added that the company will continue to produce new products with innovative technologies and modern play styles to support the work of charity bingo play in the province.
Large-scale eyegaming expansion is also scheduled this spring, as Ontario recently said the open eyegaming market will officially begin on April 4, 2022. A few weeks ago, iGaming Ontario announced that it had signed contracts with private operators to start the market, and that approved operators would finally be able to offer online gaming options to Ontarioians.
Agreement with Manitoba
Returning to IGT, most recently the company announced that its subsidiary IGT Canada Solutions ULC has reached an agreement with Manitoba Liquor and Lotte Inc. Through this contract extension, the international supplier of game products has integrated its updated version of the INGELEN™ video lottery central system into the Crown Agency.
The new agreement was announced on February 1, 2022, and will continue for the next five years.
