“If you're going to do a television series about ordinary people winning life-changing money on slot machines, you have to do it with IGT,” said Michael Berk, Players Network's President of Programming. “Megabucks and IGT's other MegaJackpots games have produced thousands of instant multimillionaires whose compelling personal stories we now get to share with our audience. Winners and Jackpots is the ultimate makeover show, and we're thrilled that IGT has agreed to produce it with us.”
“The Winners and Jackpots show offers a lively, well-produced showcase for our MegaJackpots products and the winners they create every week. We believe this new show on the Players Network will find a big audience among players and general viewers alike,” said Ed Rogich, vice president of marketing for IGT.
