  WALTHAM, MA, Mar 06 (Marketwire) -- 
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.
