GSN Digital Introduces Wheel of Fortune® BINGO
Combines Classic Bingo Game with Puzzle-Solving Fun
Waltham, Mass. – March 6, 2013 – GSN Digital, the interactive division of GSN, today announced the launch of Wheel of Fortune BINGO on GSN.com. The new game combines classic Bingo gameplay with the familiar imagery and gameplay of television’s Wheel of Fortune, satisfying fans of America’s #1 game show and Bingo fanatics alike.
Wheel of Fortune BINGO lets players earn virtual tokens as they strive for a Bingo and attempt to solve Wheel of Fortune puzzles. The new game is the latest Wheel of Fortune title from GSN Digital. Other popular cross-platform titles include Wheel of Fortune and Wheel of Fortune Slots, which have consistently been among GSN’s most popular games. More than 17 million players collectively have played Wheel of Fortune Slots on GSN.com, the GSN Casino mobile app and Games by GSN Facebook app.
“Our millions of Wheel of Fortunes Slots fans have taken over 38 billion spins, proving that Wheel of Fortune content is in high demand.” said Jeff Karp, executive vice president, mobile and social games for GSN Digital. “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 players first pick the number of Bingo cards they would like to play and the number of tokens they’d like to play per card. Once the game starts, the Letter Board appears along with a one-of-a-kind Bingo hopper featuring the iconic Wheel. With each spin of the wheel, one ball is dropped. Yellow balls contain Bingo numbers, which players match to their Bingo cards, pink balls are Wild, allowing players to daub any spot on their card, and blue Prize Balls credit the user a bonus of tokens. Rare orange Puzzle Balls allow players to select a letter on the Letter Board and make progress towards solving the puzzle. Each correct letter adds tokens to the Puzzle Bank. Successfully solving the puzzle earns the player the value of the Puzzle Bank. If a player achieves Bingo, they spin the wheel to see how many tokens they have won. Any progress the player has made in filling out the letters of the puzzle is carried over to the next game.
Wheel of Fortune BINGO is currently available on www.gsn.com and will launch in the Games by GSN app on Facebook in the coming weeks.
