This much-anticipated new video slot mines the nine seasons of the landmark 1990s Seinfeld TV series, transforming the four main characters and all the most celebrated episodes into a pack of bonus events, presented with a cinematic flair thanks to the WMS “GameScape” cabinet. The immersive curved lower screen, upper monitor and wheel contribute to a variety of bonus styles befitting the variety of classic Seinfeld moments, from the Soup Nazi to the “Contest.”
The base game is a five-reel, 36-line video slot available in penny and nickel denominations. There is a wide-area progressive, available on two separate links. The Reel Adventures link resets the top prize, won with five jackpot symbols on payline 28, at $200,000 ($201,000 in Nevada). The Cash Connection link resets the top jackpot at 40 million credits times the denomination—$400,000 in pennies or $2 million in nickels.
All the bonus events reflect classic moments from the show. The “Seinfeld Feature” can randomly occur during the base game, triggering one of four “mini-games,” including the “Elaine Giant Reel Sets,” with an additional three rows on the main reel array; “Kramer Wild Reels,” with up to five reels randomly covered with Kramer Wild symbols; the “George Multiplier” with up to a 7X multiplier on all paylines; and “Jerry Added Wilds” with wild symbols placed on from three to five symbols.
Scattered bonus symbols trigger one of four main bonus events, and multipliers of 2X, 5X or 10X. The main bonus events are “No Soup for You,” in which players pick a soup for one spin of a “character wheel,” a random credit prize or “Today’s Soup” credit value; “Free Spins,” in which the player picks one of the four main characters for a themed reel array and five free games; “Festivus,” with one spin of the “Festivus Wheel;” or “Episode Games,” which unlocks one of six episode-specific bonuses—“The Hamptons,” “The Marine Biologist,” “The Marble Rye,” “The Bottle Deposit,” “The Butter Shave” or “The Contest.”
All are picking games, with the player choosing from icons of the particular episode—lobsters, golf balls, loaves of marble rye, bottle tops, sticks of butter, or pillows.
