Wheel of Fortune, Jam City Collaborate
Wheel of Fortune is teaming up with leading mobile game developer Jam City to “Make Life Sweeter” for contestants and fans through a cross-platform integration that will incorporate Wheel of Fortune and Jam City’s Cookie Jam into each other’s games to give players and viewers chances to win “sweet” cash prizes.
With 134M downloads to date, Jam City’s beloved Cookie Jam will be themed in the style of Wheel of Fortune beginning today through October 4, 2020. The Wheel of Fortune elements incorporated into the game include the show’s logo, the iconic Wheel for players to spin, and signature sounds like the spinning of the Wheel and buzzers. Cookie Jam will also give players a chance to win $15,000 with the ‘Cookie Jam Wheel of Fortune Giveaway’ during a promotion which runs in-game through September 25, 2020.
Players can enter the in-game giveaway by beating levels on their first attempt which reveals a letter on a board similar to Wheel of Fortune’s puzzle board.
