Game based on popular TV show becomes the second bingo title to be launched this year.
GSN Digital has launched Wheel of Fortune Bingo, a social casino title based on the popular daytime TV gameshow.
The game sees players spin the wheel, which drops yellow bingo balls, pink wilds, allowing players to mark off any number on their card, and orange letter balls, which help solve a word puzzle. For each correct letter, tokens are added to the puzzle bank, allowing players to win the amount accumulated by completing the word, while a bingo gives them the chance to spin the wheel once again to randomly determine the value of their win.
The game is currently available on GSN.com, and is soon to be added to the Games by GSN Facebook app, alongside existing titles based on the gameshow including the original Wheel of Fortune game and Wheel of Fortune Slots.
“Our millions of Wheel of Fortunes Slots fans have taken over 38 billion spins, proving that Wheel of Fortune content is in high demand,” executive vice president, mobile and social games for GSN Digital Jeff Karp explained.
“Wheel of Fortune BINGO is our answer to player demand for new Wheel of Fortune content as well as new game offerings. We’re excited to engage players by layering familiar Wheel of Fortune game show experiences with the popularity of Bingo.”
Wheel of Fortune Bingo becomes the second new bingo title launched by GSN this year, following ChaChingo Bingo, an update of its Bingo Blitz title – not to be confused with the Buffalo Studios app of the same name – which went live in late January.
The gameshow originally launched in 1975 in the United States, running for 16 years, and has been syndicated around the world, with a UK version presented by the likes of Nicky Campbell and John Leslie running from 1988 to 2001.
