VGT Launches Oklahoma WAP

VGT will launch its first-ever wide-area progressive slot, Mr. Money Bags Easy Money Jackpot, in casinos across Oklahoma this week.

Tennessee-based Video Game Technologies, now a fully owned subsidiary of slot-maker Aristocrat Leisure Ltd., will launch its first-ever Class II wide-area progressive slot this week at casinos across Oklahoma.

Mr. Money Bags Easy Money Jackpot, to be unveiled across the state July 23, will feature a progressive jackpot resetting at $250,000. The jackpot will be linked to eight VGT three-reel mechanical base games—Bourbon Street, Crazy Cherry, Hot Red Ruby, King of Coin, Lucky Ducky, Mr. Money Bags, Reel Fever and Smooth as Silk.

“We are thrilled to introduce the Easy Money Jackpot wide area progressive,” said VGT President Jay Sevigny. “Players across Oklahoma know and love our games, and now they also have the chance to win a progressive jackpot that starts at $250,000, all just for playing the games they already love!”

The jackpot will be available initially at three Choctaw casinos, three Osage casinos, the Downstream in Quapaw, the Grand in Shawnee, River Spirit in Tulsa and Sugar Creek in Hinton. Other locations are expected to follow.
