IGT Launches Online Progressive in New Jersey

IGT Launches Online Progressive in New Jersey

One of the missing components in online gaming has been the wide-area progressive. International Game Technology has solved that by launching its MegaJackpots WAP games in New Jersey at four online casinos.

IGT recently announced that the company successfully launched the first cross-platform online wide-area progressive product in the United States, IGT MegaJackpots. Players in New Jersey can now vie for progressive jackpots playing IGT’s MegaJackpots games on the following gaming websites:

  • CaesarsCasino.com
  • HardRockCasino.com
  • MoheganSunCasino.com
  • ResortsCasino.com

IGT PlayDigital introduced the MegaJackpots slots family in New Jersey with two games, MegaJackpots Cleopatra and MegaJackpots Siberian Storm, and has more games in the content roadmap to follow. The jackpot pool starts at a base amount of $500,000 that is seeded by IGT, and increases in value as players wager on the games.

“Launching the first cross-platform online WAP games in the U.S. reinforces IGT’s commitment and leadership in delivering ‘industry-first’ innovation that elevates the player experience across multiple channels,” said Enrico Drago, IGT senior vice president for PlayDigital. “IGT’s MegaJackpots games continue to entertain players in the U.K. and other mature digital gaming markets around the world, and we believe our customers in New Jersey will benefit from incorporating life-changing jackpots on proven themes such as Cleopatra and Siberian Storm into their digital content offerings.”
