Kansas City, MO and Culver City, CA (PRWEB) November 30, 2005
Pat Sajak, known worldwide as host of TV’s Wheel of Fortune, has announced the launch of PatSajakGames.com and his first word game, Pat Sajak's Lucky Letters™. The site and the game are the first Sajak-branded consumer products to hit the market.
PatSajakGames.com and Pat Sajak's Lucky Letters™ are the results of a partnership between Sajak’s production company, P.A.T. Productions, and uclick, LLC, the leading provider of syndicated digital content to online and mobile publishers.
“I’m proud and excited to be partnered with the outstanding people of uclick,” said Pat Sajak. “With their knowledge of the online and mobile markets and our knowledge of word games, PatSajakGames.com promises to grow into the preeminent site for fun and challenging wordplay.”
PatSajakGames.com will be the place to stay up-to-date on the newest games being developed for online play, download play, cell phones, magazines and books.
Pat Sajak's Lucky Letters™ combines the excitement of a game show with the challenge of a word puzzle. With Pat as host of the game, players spin a slot machine and guess the Lucky Letters to win big. With the help of Lucky Chances, daring players can double their money. The game ends by racing the clock to solve Pat's entire puzzle in the Lightning Round.
Pat Sajak’s Lucky Letters™ provides players with three different games in the download version: Lucky Letters, the fun and fast game of Lucky Ten, and the multi-player game of Lucky Players. Pat wants to find players who are fast enough and smart enough to beat him at his own game.
Commenting on his newest game, Sajak said, “What I like best about Pat Sajak's Lucky Letters™ (other than the catchy name) is that, while challenging, it’s fun and fast-moving, and you don’t have to spend hours solving mind-numbing puzzles. And we’re hard at work on other new games you’ll be able to find at PatSajakGames.com. Gee, I like that name, too!”
Pat Sajak's Lucky Letters™ is available online at PatSajakGames.com and as a download game in Windows and Macintosh formats. It will also be distributed through popular game portals.
“Developing the PatSajakGames.com site and his first game were exciting opportunities for us,” said Chris Pizey, President and CEO of uclick. “I know that fans of Pat, as well as the casual game audience, will love Pat Sajak's Lucky Letters™ and the other Pat Sajak games we have in the works.”
