Everi Holdings Inc. announced that it has officially launched a premium video slot on its new Empire cabinet based on the classic 1942 film Casablanca.

Casablanca, the slot machine, represents a “significant step forward in Everi’s overall product roadmap strategy,” according to Dean Ehrlich, the company’s executive vice president and games business leader.

The game is being launched in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products Inc. The base game is a five-reel, 30-line penny slot with a five-level progressive jackpot—each of the bottom four levels linked to a character from the film. The top progressive, resetting at $3,500, is hit by filling the entire three-by-five screen with either the “Grand” or “Wild” symbol. The lower-tier progressives are won through the Knock On Wood Bonus, which spins a bonus wheel that includes all five progressives, including the top Grand prize.

The progressives are available at all bet levels.

The base game also includes a “Mystery Pick Bonus,” a picking event in which the player gets three picks from 12 symbols for credit awards or an “Exit Visa,” which triggers a new bonus. A second mystery event is the “Chance Multiplier,” which adds a multiplier of 2X, 3X or 5X to a winning spin.
