MGM Resorts inks exclusive deal for latest IGT Ghostbusters slots
September 29, 2011
MGM Resorts International and International Game Technology (IGT) have signed a 30-day, exclusive first-to-market partnership that will allow MGM’s Las Vegas Strip casinos to debut IGT’s latest iteration of its Ghostbusters Slots line.
The Ghostbusters Slots featuring Slimer, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and the Ghostbusters team was launched throughout the MGM Resorts’ Las Vegas properties this past Monday. Debuting on IGT’s new Center Stage Duo model, the game features the mischievous and lovable character Slimer teasing, mocking and awarding players with antics, multipliers and credits as he leads them through the game. The game also featured a 55-inch overhead LCD screen and MEGAfx Surround Chairs
“Based on the blockbuster film franchise from Sony Pictures, the memorable characters, a catchy song and many unforgettable scenes have made Ghostbusters a pop culture mainstay, and I think we’ve captured the fun of the brand in the Ghostbusters Slots,” said Eric Tom, executive vice president, North America sales and global operations for IGT. "Players will be thrilled by the constant action and our graphic and sound technology will make for a ghoulishly good time."
To help kick off the Ghostbusters Slots fun, MGM Resorts and IGT held a sweepstakes featuring a grand prize VIP trip to Las Vegas.
“Our guests deserve to have an amazing experience each time they arrive at one of our properties and the Ghostbusters Slots will add to that overall experience,” said Sherri Gilligan, senior vice president of marketing for MGM Resorts International. “The partnership with IGT allows us to create new opportunities for our guests and this is another example of an exclusive game we will feature on the casino floors throughout our company during the festive Halloween season.”
