October 21, 2010
Back, it is. And it’s coming to a galaxy near you. The Star Wars Droid Hunt, IGT’s new MegaJackpots Slot, shows great promise, and Star Wars fans are already raving that this game is out of this world, the company said. The game virtually takes players far, far away, and the recognizable Star Wars theme makes the product marketable on the floor and attractive to a diverse demographic.
Star Wars Droid Hunt allows for simple game play, multiple bonus opportunities, frequent feature activity and sustainable game sessions. The Star Wars saga revolutionized cinema, and this MegaJackpots game will likewise revolutionize your floor, attracting fans and players of all ages.
Familiar Star Wars sounds and images enhance the player experience with strong license appeal and entertaining features. Plus, a wide-area-progressive top award appeals to players seeking a big jackpot win.
Four interactive bonuses create a high-energy game with lots of action to engage players. Three bonus symbols trigger the Droid Hunt feature which then leads players to press a red button that awards one of the following bonuses: Droid Match, Astromech Free Spins, Ion Blaster or the Tusken Raider.
In the Droid Match Bonus, the player picks a Jawa, which has an assigned droid credit value. Then, match two droids and win the credit value for that droid times a bonus multiplier of up to 10X. Each door selected without a match increases the bonus multiplier.
In Astromech Free Spins, the player selects an astromech droid to reveal a symbol that locks in place each time it appears during the free spins. The win is awarded after all spins are completed and is based on MultiWay combinations featuring 243 ways to win.
Players can win up to 5,000 credits times the bet per line in the Ion Blaster Bonus. R2D2 is shot from the ion blaster to award the credit value.
Players can win up to 1,000 credits times the bet per line in the Tusken Raider Bonus. The Tusken Raider shakes his gaffi stick to award the credit value.
After any reel spin in the base game, a Star Destroyer may appear and trigger the Star Destroyer Wild feature where TIE fighters blast 1 to 10 symbols on the reels making them wild.
The MEGAfx Surround Chair wraps players in comfort and delivers seat-shaking sound to bring the galactic action alive.
It comes in a penny denomination for all WAP jurisdictions, and is selectable in standalone jurisdictions. The payback range if 87 to 89 percent for WAPs, and 88 to 93.5 percent for standalone products. The top award for standalone jurisdictions is 100,000 credits.
