The Big Bang Theory

This latest game on Aristocrat’s “Wonder Wheels” product line—the elaborate setup that includes three mechanical wheels—recreates TV’s No. 1 comedy series, The Big Bang Theory. With the cooperation of series owner Warner Bros., Aristocrat game designers combined a multitude of video clips, character images, 3D animation and theme music from the show into a video slot packed with a variety of themed bonus events.

The slot has a multi-game base game on which players can play up to four reel sets. One of 10 mystery bonuses can be triggered within the base game at any time with any bet. Additionally, three scatters trigger The Big Bang Theory Bonus Wheel, which awards one of six bonus features:

• “Large Leonard Hofstadter Collision Feature,” with free Mega symbol spins with player-selected volatility;

• “Dr. Sheldon Cooper Roommate Agreement Feature,” with eight free Reel Power spins;

• “Penny Friendship Paradigm Feature,” with five free scatter-pay spins awarded on a 4X4 reel set;

• “Howard Wolowitz Mystic Warlords Of Ka’a Feature,” where the player selects cards to reveal

multipliers and credits;

• “Raj Koothrappali Scavenger Vortex Feature,” where the player selects scavenger objects to reveal

credits or Win All; and,

• “The Big Bang Theory Progressive Feature,” where the player selects symbols to win credits or

a progressive jackpot prize.

The multi-site progressive, resetting at $250,000, can be won on any base-game spin with at least 200 credits wagered, by landing the Jackpot symbol on all four games. The game features a three-level progressive with the multi-site option.
