IGT launches online sweepstakes

Starting October 1, players have been able to learn about the new game while earning entries to the Wheel of Fortune $150,000 Super Wild Sweepstakes.

Leading slot manufacturer International Game Technology is launching an online sweepstakes promotion to promote awareness of its new “Wheel of Fortune Super Spin Super Wild” game, the latest version of the famous game that features group play around a giant horizontal fortune wheel.

    Starting October 1, players have been able to learn about the new game while earning entries to the Wheel of Fortune $150,000 Super Wild Sweepstakes. For eight weeks, players who log in to www.SuperWildSweepstakes.com  are immediately launched into an animated sequence depicting a flight through a casino, zooming toward a carousel of the game.

    The player “lands” at his own player station on the animated bank of nine machines positioned around the wheel display.

What follows is a free, simulated interactive game on Wheel of Fortune Super Spin Super Wild, with tips on playing the game popping up along the way. Playing the game earns an entry into the national sweepstakes, which will award a grand prize of $150,000, and a chance of a daily prize of a Sony Cyber-Shot digital camera. Players can enter once a day.

    “We believe the $150,000 Sweepstakes will introduce a new set of players to Wheel of Fortune Super Spin, and especially to the new Super Wild version, which is like playing a whole new game,” said Ed Rogich, IGT vice president of marketing. “This sweepstakes will help us further understand what our players like and respond to, so we can make things more fun and exciting as we develop these online programs in the future.”
