BetMGM announced today they will be sponsoring a Nightly Progressive Jackpot as part of Wheel of Fortune’s “Big Money Week” scheduled May 20-24, as the successful syndicated game show celebrates its 8,000 episode. The sponsorship is a first for the syndicated game show in its history.

Jackpot Adds To The Contestant’s Potential Winnings

The Nightly Progressive Jackpot will be added to whatever a contestant wins if they solve the show’s Bonus Puzzle. And during game play, there will be a BetMGM-branded “Double Jackpot” wedge on the famous Wheel giving contestants who earn the opportunity to add double the Nightly Progressive Jackpot to their total if they win the Bonus Round.

Said BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt in a statement: “’Big Money Week’ is a great collaboration, giving contestants and viewers at home the opportunity to experience the excitement of a progressive jackpot.”

There will also be the integration of BetMGM branding into “Big Money Week”, including in-show displays of the BetMGM logo on host Sajak’s monitor, and co-branded graphics displayed in the center monitor.

Wheel of Fortune reaches 21.5 million unique viewers each week and averages more than 9.1 million viewers nightly.

BetMGM Just Launched New Wheel of Fortune Slot Game

In April, BetMGM announced they had launched BetMGM Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spin in collaboration with IGT.

The new online slot game features a unique reel set and is now live at BetMGM in Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and north of the border in Ontario.

Everyone knows the Wheel of Fortune game show, of course, which premiered its 41 season last September. The current version of the show stars Pat Sajak and Vanna White. Sajak has announced his retirement and will soon be replaced by Ryan Seacrest.

The online casino game is packed with bright visuals and gameplay, and offers players 720 ways to win, with triple the wheels and triple the spins. BetMGM Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spin is also topped up with bonuses – the Mini Wheel Bonus, triggered by three or more Mini Wheel symbols anywhere on the reels, and the Triple Extreme Spin Bonus, awarding cash and multipliers.
