Rory Harpur's Reflection
Rory Harpur, Head of Studio at Alchemy Gaming, added his thoughts: “When we debuted Wheel of Wishes back in 2020, little did we know the incredible impact its central progressive jackpot would have. Not only is this latest WowPot!™ win the first top-tier jackpot to strike on the game, it’s also the largest online slot jackpot win. A truly historic day for the Alchemy team, for our partners at Games Global, and in the wider industry.”
