The Wheel of Fortune is probably the most iconic slot product ever made, and it certainly is the most successful. In the 25 years since it was introduced IGT’s Wheel of Fortune slots have awarded billions of dollars in jackpots. The game’s 25th anniversary celebration culminated in “Big Money Week” in early May on the TV program, which boasts 25 million weekly viewers. During the week, hosts Pat Sajak and Vanna White highlighted several IGT WOF games as the centerpiece of each show. Jennifer Fales is IGT’s vice president of global licensing and a former 40 Under 40 honoree at GGB, and she explains the allure of the game and why it will continue to be one of the top casino games for years to come. She spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at the IGT headquarters in Las Vegas in April.
