New York-listed International Game Technology (IGT) has launched its first Wide Area Progressive (WAP) jackpot product for online play in the United States.

The IGT PlayDigital division has initially released MegaJackpots Cleopatra and MegaJackpots Siberian Storm in New Jersey’s regulated iGaming market, with further games from the MegaJackpots Slots family to follow.

The IGT-seeded jackpot pool starts at $500,000 and increases in value as players wager on the games, which are available via CaesarsCasino.com, HardRockCasino.com, MoheganSunCasino.com and ResortsCasino.com.

“Launching the first cross-platform online WAP games in the US reinforces IGT’s commitment and leadership in delivering ‘industry-first’ innovation that elevates the player experience across multiple channels,” said Enrico Drago, IGT senior vice president of PlayDigital.

“IGT’s MegaJackpots games continue to entertain players in the UK and other mature digital gaming markets around the world, and we believe our customers in New Jersey will benefit from incorporating life-changing jackpots on proven themes such as Cleopatra and Siberian Storm into their digital content offerings.”

Shares in International Game Technology plc (NYQ:IGT) closed up 2.07 per cent at $20.20 per share in New York Friday.
