19.092018IGT Take Things to the Next Level with New US Tech
IGT are one of the biggest and oldest names in the online gambling sector, creating some of the most played online slot machines in history. They are a major feature on a host of online casinos in Europe, and now they are expanding their reach into the United States with their first WAP product.
What is it?
WAP stands for “Wide Area Progressive” and features a Mega Jackpot game that will be available in selected online casinos. These have actually featured in the UK already and have proved very popular, so big things are expected as they move into the US.
Not only is the US home to Powerball and Mega Millions, the two biggest lottery jackpots in the world, but New Jersey itself is also the home of the Cash4Life jackpot, and it is in New Jersey that these products will get their launch.
The Mega Jackpot games that will feature are Mega Jackpots Cleopatra and Mega Jackpots Siberian Storm, with more titles expected to be added at a later date. The jackpots are progressive, beginning at $500,000 and increasing every time they are played.
They could reach millions and even tens of millions, which means they could be set to smash some interactive gaming records in the United States. They will have to beat some pretty big games if that is going to happen, but they certainly have the potential.
Where to Find Them
These WAP products will be launched in four New Jersey online casinos. These casinos are some of the few regulated online casinos in the United States and will be available to players across the state.
New Jersey is home to Atlantic City, one of the biggest gambling destinations in the US, so it was always going to be a good starting point for online gambling technology, but if they prove popular here then they could spread further afield.
