Stan Fulton (RIP), Randy Adams and the Wheel of Gold slot machine, Wheel of Fortune were two of my favorite things. The bonus could be used to drive a videogame. Keith Winters, I and the financier Running Rich created and funded Running Rich. It is the first video-driving bonus slot machine. The Nevada Control Board and Commission approved it after they successfully tested it in Nevada and California. Steelman said, “We feel the thrill of the ride ahead.”
