The popular Wheel of Fortune video slot series has added a new game featuring Vanna White in 4D. The innovative technology combines immersive 3D graphics with gesture recognition and surround sound. And no special glasses or other equipment is required.

Currently, it’s available exclusively in Atlantic City at the Wild Wild West Casino.

Enhanced by original video and audio — White cheers players on with words of encouragement and her signature round of applause — the game, with its 4D technology, enables players to spin the wheel in mid-air without even touching the machine.

The synchronized top LCD monitors display the wheel image across all machines in the bank.

During the jackpot bonus, players select wheel wedges that turn over to reveal an item that corresponds with a jackpot amount. The first three matching items award the associated jackpot.

Players are eligible for the top wide-area progressive with a 300-credit minimum bet.

This one-cent, 75-payline game features a 100-credit cost-to-cover with a maximum bet of 500 credits.

Since Wheel of Fortune slots were introduced in 1995, they have created more than 1,000 millionaires and delivered more than $3 billion in jackpots.

Do it yourself: Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City has introduced Self-Pay Jackpots. After winning a taxable jackpot of $1,200 or more, instead of waiting for a slot attendant to get authorization, process the required W-2G tax forms, and retrieve payment from the cashier, players can transfer the jackpot directly to their machine. The free service is limited to jackpots up to a maximum of $10,000. Eligible players must be U.S. citizens or residents, have a Wild Card Rewards card, and two forms of government-issued identification, one with a photo. To participate, sign-up with a slot representative on the casino floor, a casino host, or at the casino credit office.

Open for business: At patrons in New Jersey can now place sports bets on their computers, as well as their Android and iOS mobile applications. The site offers unique features and promotions, with enhanced odds added daily, as well as one of the largest selections of bets in the state. And online casino players can use their winnings to bet on sports for a seamless user experience.

Problem solver: March is Problem Gambling Awareness Month. For information locally contact the Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey at 800-GAMBLER or visit its website,
