There's good news for Sex and the City fans with an itch to gamble, Casino City Times columnist John Brokopp notes: The gals will soon be on a video slot machine that mirrors the TV series.
International Game Technology partnered with HBO to create what it hopes will be a huge casino hit, not only among Sex and the City devotees but also among slot players who are always looking for new technologies that take their gambling experience to the next level.
A big draw will be the fact Sex and the City will feature MegaJackpots, an opportunity for participants to cash in on huge awards for fortuitous spins, even though the odds against hitting a big one are steep.
... the slot comes equipped with what IGT is calling a MEGAfx "Surround Chair", the company's answer to WMS Gaming's Sensory Immersion playing experience. Both technologies feature enhanced audio capabilities.
The bonus games, he says, are:
In Simply Fabulous! participants select on-screen jewelry boxes, which open to reveal numbers that ultimately will make up a four-digit number representing the amount of bonus credits awarded.
The Perfect Present feature is a free game bonus in which up to 15 "presents" may appear on the screen's reels, which then transform into scatter plays, triggering bonus credit payoffs.
Change of Dress may prove to be the most popular bonus component of the game because players get to select a character from the show and then change her outfit while collecting bonus credits and multipliers. There's a neat matching "mirror" feature.
The attraction of the Hello Lover! Bonus is a "locking" symbol, which holds its position on the reels throughout the duration of the five free spins, increasing the chances of winning big.
Sex and the City slots have already been installed at properties in Las Vegas and Reno. Other gaming jurisdictions will be quick to follow suit as soon as regulatory approvals come through.
