The wait is over and the fun has begun!

Aristocrat’s newest video slot product, JAWS just made its debut at Sycuan Casino in El Cajon, near San Diego and players are already swimming in fun. JAWS will be heading to Las Vegas within three months after just getting Nevada approval last Thursday.

A line quickly developed with players waiting some three hours to be among the first to play the gaming industry’s newest and most exciting game. Players didn’t have to wait long to be rewarded as they entered into the fun bonus games and took away jackpots.

Based on the Academy Award-winning film franchise, JAWS submerges the player in a total sensory experience, including incredible video graphics, state-of-the-art sound, even a "shark tooth" spin button.

The fun begins the minute players sit down in their chair and touch the shark tooth spin button. From deep inside the slot, the familiar spine-tingling JAWS theme music sets the tone. Players want to find the shark, which carries all sorts of fun and bonuses.

With JAWS, players can win one of four Hyperlink® progressive jackpots and fun bonus games keep players in the "water" longer. Completing the experience, an electro-mechanical buoy topper lights up and sounds off a bell during game play, and shark "gills" cover the speakers.

JAWS is driven by Aristocrat’s powerful GEN7 platform, resulting in state-of-the-art video and amazing sound quality for some of the best slot play anywhere. Encasing the game is the award-winning VIRIDIAN cabinet, complete with blue water bubble trim and edge lighting that turns red when players enter the bonus.
