Multi-Site Jackpots Blast off in New Jersey in January 2023
New Jersey players have a great reason to look forward to the New Year. Thanks to the special love of the state’s residents for gambling, NJ has once again been chosen to bring innovation to the iGaming industry. This time, the experiment was initiated by the well-known game provider Light & Wonder (L&W).
The company announced gaming innovations at the Global Gaming Expo (GGE) in October. Some of them had not previously been applied to online gambling. For New Jersey, L&M has a special wonderful offer as it is here that the Jackpot Festivals will begin. If NJ players welcome it, the innovation will eventually spread to other states.
The Idea of Progressive Jackpot Festivals and Its Implementation in the Digital Space
Online gambling is gradually adopting the best practices of land-based casinos. In the retail casino industry, there are special wide-area progressive slots (WAPs). They differ in that they are united in casino networks operating under different licenses. The more players choose such slot machines, the larger and faster the jackpot grows.
Light & Wonder will take this idea to the online space by uniting several New Jersey gambling sites in January 2023. The company decided to start this Festival with the well-known 88 Fortunes game. Perhaps, this slot was selected to get this initiative a good start as 8 is considered an incredibly auspicious number for anyone seeking wealth!
Which Operators Will Participate in the Multi-Site Jackpot Festival
The list of participants of the Progressive Jackpot Festival is still kept secret. However, the popularity of the game picked to launch this multi-site project is so high that it can unite almost all casino operators in New Jersey. It is expected that at least the most reputable online casinos will support this network initiative:
This is truly good news for all NJ fans of progressive jackpots. However, like a real Santa Claus, L&W has surprises and gifts in Christmas stockings for everyone. In particular, fans of playing in live casinos will soon visit L&W studios with live dealers. Casino operators will be able to take advantage of new card shuffling technologies, send personalized videos to winners, and implement other useful innovations. And the company’s focus on the development of network and immersive technologies promises many more surprises in the near future for everyone!
