Casinos Partner With HBO To Make Sex And The City Slot Machines
Fans of the hit HBO TV show, Sex, and the City, got a surprise recently when the show made its way onto the casino floor in Las Vegas and Reno, Nevada. International Game Technology, a company that makes casino equipment like slot machines, created the Sex and the City game with permission from HBO, and several casinos across Nevada recently unveiled the new game on the floor.
Sex And The City – The Slot Machine
The Sex and the City game is one of many slot machines based on popular movies and TV shows. The trend is not a new one, and most casinos offer several games based on characters from hit shows. Sex and the City’s predecessor include Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Green Acres, and the Wizard of Oz to name a few. These games are extremely popular for recognizable themes and fun-play.
The Sex and the City game feature all the main characters of the show; Samantha, Charlotte, Miranda, Carrie, and Mr. Big. It is a modern-style slot machine with several betting lines and an interactive bonus. The slot machine also has video clips from the show, voice-overs, and a soundtrack.
International Game Technology’s Multi-play
One of the most drawing features of the multi-progressive slot machine is the incorporation of International Game Technology’s Multiplay feature.
Multiplay is a technology offered exclusively by the slot machine maker. In Multiplay, the player can play up to four games at once on the same screen. This means the player is betting more than usual, but there are also more chances to win. With four games running 30 pay lines apiece, it’s a hard thing to pass up.
Sex And The City Bonuses
On top of the Multiplay, the Sex and the City slot machine has attractive bonuses.
There are a total of five bonus rounds in the game that offer nine unique patterns. This is a far cry from the standard singular bonus round featured on most slot machines, and it is paying off. Most players are playing all four Multiplay games on every round in hopes of hitting one of the many bonuses.
The bonus games consist of Simply Fabulous, Hello Lover!, Change of Dress, and Perfect Present. While the games vary, they are all interactive. The bonuses either offer free spins or give the player a chance to pick prizes on the screen.
Overall, the Sex and the City slot machine is such a big hit for the casinos that one has to wonder if more HBO-style games are in the works.
