Aristocrat unveils first game on new VERVEhd cabinet
July 15, 2010
Art world, meet the gaming industry. Gaming industry, meet the art world. You’re going to get along famously, according to Aristocrat Technologies.
Aristocrat calls its sleek and modern VERVEhd cabinet “a work of art in itself,” with its twin 21.5-inch HD monitors, panoramic digital audio, interactive LCD buttons and revolutionary ergonomic design that is dramatically more comfortable for players.
So it only made sense for Aristocrat to launch this new work of art with an entirely new game that is a perfect blend of art from a world-famous artist and math from the gaming industry’s best developers – Godard’s Rockin’ Olives. Godard’s Rockin’ Olives, the first game on the new VERVEhd, features the art of Michael Godard.
Las Vegan Michael Godard is one of the best-selling artists in the United States, and his works hang in galleries and in private collections all over the world, according to Aristocrat.
Now, his famous olives come to the casino floor – Godard hand-painted every frame of the game. Rockin’ Olives is a five-reel, 25-line video slot specially designed for one cent and two-cent denominations. A 25-credit plus 10-credit ante bet gets players rockin’.
The game has three lower-level standalone progressive jackpots, and the top jackpot is linked to the entire bank. The OLIVE is wild, substituting for any symbol except DICE. Further, any symbol on reels 1 and 5 appearing with LIGHTENING triggers the sixth reel, which may award one of four bonus features: In Rock Show, the player touches speakers to reveal up to 500 credits. In Risky Rhythms, a drum-playing olive drum-solos his way to give players credits that they can either take or risk. Guitar Battle features two olives going head-to-head on the guitar randomly awarding up to 400 credits. World Tour gives 15 free games.
