Alfred Hitchcock Presents

While IGT’s latest themed game on the premium CrystalCurve Ultra cabinet carries the title of legendary director Alfred Hitchcock’s iconic TV series from the late 1950s and early 1960s—the familiar theme song, Gounod’s “Funeral March of a Marionette,” can be heard during spins; there are stills and video of Hitchcock from the set of the mystery/horror series—the game’s bonus features draw on the director’s most famous motion pictures.

The base game is a five-reel, 40-line video slot with a 75-credit cost to cover, featuring frequent base-game features. The bonus features reference the Hitchcock films Psycho, Vertigo and The Birds.

Free games are triggered when two bonus symbols land on reels one and three and either the Psycho, Vertigo, or The Birds theme symbol appears on reel five.

The Director’s Cut Wheel Bonus is triggered randomly during the base game and can award credits, bonuses, or “Hitchcock’s Jackpot.”
