LAS VEGAS, Nov. 5, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — International Game Technology (NYSE: IGT), a global leader in creating the major games that players love and the casino network systems that improve the player experience, will unveil its latest brands based on popular culture icons from movie and television at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) 2010, Nov. 16-18. Numerous new games from pop culture joining the MegaJackpotsÃ‚® family include Godzilla(TM), Dirty Dancing(TM), Ghostbusters(TM), and a new addition to the popular Sex and the City(TM) family of games.
“IGT is bringing the most recognizable and powerful names in popular culture to the casino floor,” said Ron Rivera, IGT senior vice president of North America sales. “With something for every player and every casino floor, our lineup includes great brands that players will connect with and instantly recognize.”
Earthshaking action from one of the biggest characters of all time is combined with entertaining game play and amazing 3D graphics in the new Godzilla on Monster Island(TM) MultiPLAY Slots. This larger-than-life Godzilla experience leverages leading-edge technology and 3D content available only from IGT. The game features realistic, interactive, real-time 3D animations that take immersive game play to a level never before seen in gaming.
The Godzilla on Monster Island(TM) MultiPLAY slot provides thrilling game play in both the base and bonus games. In the base game, Godzilla fires off his atomic breath, igniting wild symbols on the reels. And Mothra flies in, changes wilds to expanding wilds for increased wins and adds multiplier wilds up to an amazing 125X. Three exciting battle bonuses create a frenzy of fun in eye-popping 3D. In Godzilla vs. The City bonus, Godzilla emerges from the water to destroy buildings and send residents fleeing. During the Godzilla vs. The Military bonus, players guide Godzilla’s atomic breath to destroy attacking military vehicles and create wins. The Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla bonus delivers player-favorite free spins with a Godzilla twist. And players will feel every earthshaking monster movement, every battle impact and every fiery explosion with IGT’s MEGAfx Surround Chair. It’s an immersive game experience like no other.
The Ghostbusters(TM) Slots family asks the classic question “Who ya gonna call?” and answers it in an entertaining MegaJackpotsÃ‚® game. Paranormal exterminators Venkman, Stantz, Spengler and Zeddemore, along with “The Keymaster” Louis Tully, all appear in the game. But the true star is Slimer, who is up to even more mischievous fun. This iconic green ghost appears randomly and often, adding credit wins, wilds and multipliers throughout the base game. With a minimum bet, players are eligible for the random Slimer base game features and the Ghostbusters(TM) Bonus. The Ghostbusters(TM) Bonus consists of four sub-bonuses including three highly themed, interactive bonuses packed with iconic clips from the blockbuster Ghostbusters(TM) movie, as well as a free games bonus with random locked wilds and credit awards. And all the fun action plays out in exciting 3D, showcased in an attractive two-machine configuration with a shared 55-inch LCD overhead screen that displays bonus play and attracts.
Players will be sure to get a lift with the new Dirty Dancing(TM) Slots featuring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. This MegaJackpotsÃ‚® game is infused with nostalgia, famous songs and memorable dance clips. The base game includes a new, randomly initiated feature called Spin Magic(TM), which selects one of the minor symbols and turns it wild for a given spin, creating player anticipation. The symbol-initiated bonuses include two pick bonuses–Mambo Magic and Time of My Life–and the Staff Quarters free games bonus. Iconic music and clips from the movie play during the bonuses, taking players back to that fateful summer of 1963 in the Catskill Mountains.
All the glitz and glamour of Sex and the City(TM) is back with the newest edition of this already extremely popular line of games. Sex and the City Big Diamonds(TM) brings back all the favorite characters with exciting MultiPLAY action. The base game displays four unique game interfaces, each themed to one of the famous leading ladies from Sex and the City(TM). In addition, Mr. Big can randomly award wilds with a shower of diamonds.
Sex and the City Big Diamonds(TM) features five progressive pick bonus levels, each one themed to one of the five main characters in the hit series.
