From Staff Reports| AC Coin & Slot, a leader in the field of leased bonusing slot machines, announced last week their 2008 summer lineup of new games, which will debut at two upcoming industry tradeshows this month.
"Slot players are intelligent gamers who often return to the same types of machines they have had success with in the past," said Jerry Seelig, AC Coin Executive. "Taking the most successful elements of our most popular games and making them available with new themes, vibrant displays and sound, engaging bonuses and higher pay tables ensures that slot players will be entertained longer in the casino and will walk away feeling satisfied with their experience."
AC Coin & Slot’s latest games are designed to maximize player entertainment by offering more frequent bonusing rounds and additional ways to play and win.
Higher line configurations also allow slot players to spread their money across more games in a variety of ways, allowing for longer play on a set budget.
Three new games – Big Game Show Gold Edition Bonus, Chef’s Daily Special Bonus, and When in Rome – feature moving mechanical parts and flying balls that rely on gravity and kinetic energy to bring excitement to the slot floor and a sense of spontaneity to each handle pull.
"We are very excited about the large variety of programs and titles we have to offer this year," says Larry Henshaw, VP Research and Development. "The pure energy our games project coupled with the different programs they offer allows players to experience more of the entertainment value we design our games around."
Here’s a closer look at the new games:
Big Game Show Bonus
The Big Game Show Bonus is back, ten times better in its Gold Edition with 25 paylines. The newest edition to the Slotto Advanced Series has an updated game board featuring a 10x multiplier. The Big Game Show Gold Edition Bonus is available on Triple Stars 5-Reel, 25-line paytable with configurable max bet functionality ranging from 25 to 500 credits.
The bonus round begins when three Big Game Show Gold Edition Bonus symbols appear on a played payline. After the player activates the bonus round by pressing the flashing button, the game card award board is initiated and starts to randomly blink, at which time one game card award square will be displayed to the player.
Located on the game card are 14 different squares that contain credit awards and ball drop awards including 10X and 5X multiplier spaces. Located in the top box are ten balls including one Devil ball (zero award) and 9 with pay values (20-500).
When the appropriate number of balls is revealed, the amounts are added to the game card credit awards and the total amount is awarded to the player, ending the bonus event. All wins are multiplied by the initiating line bet.
Chef’s Daily Special Bonus
Slot players will be serenaded by this 30-line bonusing game that plays, "That’s Amore" and features an interactive bonus game card. The bonus feature is initiated by the appearance of three bonus symbols on any played payline.
The game board award card is then initiated and begins to randomly blink. The player is prompted to press the flashing button, at which time one game card award is displayed to the player.
Located on the game card are three different squares representing one, two, and four-ball drop awards. Located in the top box are 11 balls, including a 2x multiplier ball and 10 balls with pay values.
When the appropriate number of balls are revealed to the player, the amounts are added to the bonus meter and the total amount is awarded to the player. If one or more multiplier balls drop, all pay value amounts are first added together and then the multiplier(s) are applied last. All wins are multiplied by the initiating bet.
When In Rome
Experience the grandeur of Rome, even without a toga! The game combines a thrilling Triple Stars 5 Reel 30 line max-configurable pay table with the action of an interactive bonus game card, and new 3x 5x and 10x multiplier awards.
When three When in Rome bonus symbols land on any played payline, players enter the fun-filled bonus round. The game card award board is then initiated and begins to randomly blink. Located on the game card are 14 different squares that contain credit awards and ball drop awards.
The player is prompted to press the flashing button, at which time the blinking stops and a single award square is displayed. Located in the top box are eleven balls with pay values (20-1000). When one or more balls are revealed, the amounts are added to the game card credit awards and the total amount is awarded to the player. All wins are multiplied by the initiating line bet.
