Slot and system manufacturer Aristocrat Technologies announced two major developments last month. The company will deliver major systems solutions at the Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort in D’Iberville, Mississippi, when it deploys its entire Oasis 360 solution, including its full casino management system, professional services, SpeedMedia, Oasis One Link (bonusing, progressives and poker frenzy), table management system and Oasis HALO Loyalty (core software, kiosks, mobile app and promotions), subject to regulatory approvals.
“We have carefully designed our entire resort—from the casino to the guest rooms to the golf course—with a player’s comfort in mind,” said Scarlet Pearl CEO Denise Barton. “When we were presented with Aristocrat’s exemplary system solutions, we knew it was the right choice to enhance our players’ experience across the resort.”
And in Europe, Aristocrat is launching its elaborate “Wonder Wheels” slot format this summer, with the introduction in July and August of the “Batman Classic TV Series” video slot in European casinos.
The game, on Aristocrats’ new Helix cabinet, stands 3.2 meters (10 feet, 6 inches), including a large portrait-style top-box screen and unique triple mechanical wheel setup for bonuses. Audio from the show booms through an optional surround-sound “iChair.” Each player gets his own wheel, plus a bonusing wheel for the game bank, allowing players on the bank to continue uninterrupted when another player hits a trigger and engages wheel mode.
Video clips and theme music from the show capture the kitsch, tongue-in-cheek action of the landmark 1960s TV series featuring Adam West, as well as the classic performances of 1960s-era stars in criminal roles like the Riddler, the Joker and Catwoman.
With a static grand jackpot of €10,000 linked across paired pods, game play is enhanced by stacked wilds, six themed bonus features and a highly anticipatory wheel feature trigger.
