Yonkers, NY—Empire City Casino continues to go to extremes to enhance the experience for its players at the premier gaming destination closest to New York City. The Yonkers-based casino installed new dynamic “Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spin” slots last week at the Entertainment Lounge area in the Gotham Palace.
“The Wheel of Fortune Extreme Spin slots are as exciting to watch as they are to play, and bring a fresh spin to our games,” said vice president of marketing Ryan Murphy. “We now have over 100 games with the wildly-popular Wheel of Fortune theme, and the new slots bring even more excitement to the casino floor.”
The new games are of a penny denomination with a maximum bet of $3.00. Empire City plans to double the number of the new slots to in the coming months. The extreme spin games feature exciting bonus rounds with three wheels spinning simultaneously.
The eye-catching slots were previewed by the casino’s executive team at last year’s G2E Gaming Conference in Las Vegas, and the team has eagerly anticipated their arrival.
The Wheel of Fortune® brand slots are among the more popular games on the 140,000 square foot gaming floor. In October 2015, the IGT Wheel of Fortune® Triple Stars® slot machine delivered the largest jackpot ever hit at any of New York State’s racetrack casinos, with a whopping $1,473,503 score hit by Suffolk County resident Howard G. just a few feet from the casino’s valet entrance. The best part of the win according to Howard was that he hit using free play from his Empire Club membership, Empire City’s players reward program.
