The Wheel of Fortune 4D game is a Wide Area Progressive (WAP) jackpot–eligible game that is housed on IGT’s towering CrystalCurve TRUE 4D cabinet. The game incorporates iconic game-play elements such as the millionaire-making “Wheel Bonus” with its signature “WHEEL-OF-FORTUNE!” chant, and the likeness of famed Wheel of Fortune TV personality Vanna White. Wheel of Fortune 4D introduces a bank-wide bonus event across the 50-inch, curved, ultra-HD upper displays of up to six banked cabinets to create one unified graphic of the Wheel of Fortune wheel. The player whose winning wager initiated the bonus can then spin the wheel and all Wheel of Fortune 4D players sitting at the bank will enjoy a shared experience.

Delaware North, the US based casino operator, has filed a lawsuit against its sports betting joint venture partner Miomni Gaming.

The operator is seeking monetary damages through the suit filed in the Chancery Court of Delaware, including Miomni’s 49% stake in the BetLucky joint venture, which the supplier is apparently refusing to give up. The joint venture was made to launch the BetLucky sports betting platform. Delaware North then terminated the contract earlier this month.

The operator claims Miomni made fraudulent claims to induce it to enter into a joint venture, as well as of wilfully breaching a limited liability company agreement governing the operation of BetLucky.

Delaware North claims that Miomni and chief executive Venner repeatedly claimed to own intellectual property rights to the platform, including the source code for the front end and back end of the platform.
