resh from their unveiling at November’s Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas, Aristocrat’s six-strong collection of new standalone gaming genres and feature themes is supported by a broad selection of brand new base games, all housed in the new VIRIDIAN WS cabinet.
The vast majority will be available for deployment in the first quarter of 2011, subject to regulatory approvals.
MEGA PAY games incorporate a feature-triggered multi-dimensional maelstrom of reel play. When players hit the MEGA PAY feature, they are rewarded with two sets of reels and further opportunities to build more reel sets, up to a maximum of four, each additional set delivering more exciting ways to win prizes.
MULTI MEGA PAY puts the multi-game experience firmly at the fingertips of the player, who can pay to play two, three or four base game reel sets directly from the outset. Each reel set carries its own free game meter, whilst any super free game features won bring ultimate manifold rewards as free games are unleashed across all open reel sets.
REMIX adds a fast and fun twist to traditional spinning reels. Utilising high end hardware graphics capabilities and the creative genius of software animation programming, a triggered REMIX feature spurs the random shuffling of reels or symbols, adding extra excitement and rewarding possibilities.
DRAG ‘N’ DROP capability brings greater interaction between player and game by allowing the player to choose and position key elements of games.
WIN YOUR WAY is a masterpiece of complex mathematics that puts the player firmly in control of their playing experience.
HYPERLOOP seamlessly integrates a mechanical top box with superb on-screen animation. Upon triggering the game feature, players watch in wonder as flashing lights loop around the Hyperloop, dropping in extra multipliers or wilds.
Aristocrat’s Head of Sales for Central Europe, Pedro Extremera commented: “Our new game categories received a rapturous response from customers seeing them for the first time at G2E and we are tremendously excited about the impact they will have on casino floors here in Europe. The new VIRIDIAN world base also means that all new games will be multi denomination, affording even greater flexibility in operators’ slot strategies.”
The company’s ICE line-up will also feature a number of new titles developed for Aristocrat’s existing standalone games categories, notably Stuntman Sam – a new Bonus Bank concept sporting a bespoke feature top box housing a portrait 32-inch LCD display – as well as two new standalone progressive games with Power Pay jackpots, Temple of Moolah and Wild Romans and the double standalone progressive Emperor Penguin. Further all-new games on the VIRIDIAN WS platform will bring even more choice to Aristocrat’s popular and trusted Reel Power, Xtra Reel Power, Power Pay and Multi Line formats.
Pedro Extremera enthused: “We’re ready to roll out more than 30 brand new games with fresh categories and feature themes; an exciting prospect by any measure. But these aren’t just any games. They’re Aristocrat games, with each title featuring all the hallmarks and pedigree of over 50 years’ experience as a leading gaming innovator. And as if that’s not enough, visitors to our ICE stand will also see a mouth watering array of inspired works across both standalone and linked categories that will be leading the way forward on European gaming floors throughout 2011 and beyond.”
