WAUKEGAN, Ill. & LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- The SPIDER-MAN game, a new fully immersive slot gaming experience from WMS Gaming Inc., a subsidiary of WMS Industries Inc. (WMS), will swing into action at the twelfth annual Global Gaming Expo (G2E®), October 2-4 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas. The latest Sensory Immersion premium participation slot game to debut from WMS leverages the “spider-sense” tingling performance of the Company’s synchronized motion chair with the advanced sound and graphics powered by WMS’ next-generation CPU-NXT®3 operating platform to bring the thrills, excitement and sense of wonder of Marvel Entertainment’s iconic SUPER HERO™ to casino slot floors.
The new SPIDER-MAN slot game is WMS’ second game to feature the Sensory Immersion 2.0 synchronized motion system technology pioneered by D-BOX Technologies (DBO.TO), following on the heels of the successful Aladdin & The Magic Quest® theme that is proving popular with players across the country and generating superior coin-in performance across casino floors. The SPIDER-MAN game is a “dual-array game” providing reel-spinning video action across two full 5x3 reel layouts with each spin, along with six random “Spider-Sense” features and exciting bonus rounds that include video and audio clips from the original film trilogy. Alternatively, players may experience the advanced graphics and the perfectly synchronized motion of their chair with the video graphics in an exciting bonus battle featuring the GREEN GOBLIN™.
The SPIDER-MAN game also features a first-of-its-kind take on Free Spins, enabled only through the increased capabilities of WMS’ new, third-generation CPU-NXT3 operating platform. The pure horsepower of the CPU-NXT3 platform makes it possible to synchronize the movement of the motion chair with the action of the exciting movie clips playing behind the reels during the spins, and also to have as many as eight reel sets spinning simultaneously on each play in the bonus round. Players will find this bonus even more exciting with the possibility of multipliers up to 50x the credits awarded on all reel sets’ line wins.
“Following the tremendous player reaction to our recent Aladdin & The Magic Quest game, our exciting new SPIDER-MAN game is a premium participation game that leverages the capabilities and functionality made possible by our next-generation CPU-NXT3 platform,” said Phil Gelber, Senior Vice President, Product Development of WMS Gaming. “The CPU-NXT3 platform is revolutionizing the slot experience by bringing a heightened level of excitement to the casino floor through a fully immersive sensory experience of sound, sight and motion. Our game developers have done an excellent job integrating the proven capabilities of motion chair technology to deliver the thrills and adventure inherent in the iconic SPIDER-MAN brand and feature films. Our Sensory Immersion 2.0 platform with the CPU-NXT3 operating system delivers enhanced graphics and sound, superior play mechanics and advanced touch screen technology, all integrated into the game play. This game demonstrates one of the many unique experiences WMS is able to bring to casino slot floors as we support our customers’ efforts to fully engage players with slot entertainment that increases player loyalty at their favorite casinos.”
