IGT announced that its MultiPLAY video slot has been approved and released in 38 jurisdictions including Nevada, California and Oklahoma, along with five additional pending jurisdictions. The MultiPLAY video slot is the only one of its kind in which players can choose to play up to four video slot games on the same machine – at the same time.
"IGT really hit a home run with this game,"
said Mike Laubach, director of slot operations at The Orleans
in Las Vegas.
"This game has received phenomenal response by players. Out of 2,800
games, this game is the best one on our floor - it's off-the-charts."
MultiPLAY is also a top-performer at Cache Creek in California.
"The games are performing well above house average, and appeal to a wide
range of players, from penny to - surprisingly - High Limit," Cache Creek
Vice President of Slot Operations Russel Kinney said. "Many guests have
stated the games are tremendously fun and want to know when we're getting more
Mohegan Sun casino in Connecticut
also has seen MultiPLAY performance numbers above the house average. "We
have had a tremendous response from our guests regarding the new Multi Play
games from IGT," Mohegan Sun Vice President of Slot Operations Frank
Neborsky said. "The players like the idea of being able to play multiple
games at once while having even more bonus opportunities."
Mirage has garnered impressive performance numbers, as
well. "The performance of the MultiPLAY games has far exceeded our
expectations," Mirage Vice President of Slots Aaron Rosenthal said.
"The games play great, customer feedback has been excellent, and the
resulting numbers are well above all of our benchmarks." Rosenthal said
Cleopatra(R) MultiPLAY and Wolf Run(R) MultiPLAY have performed over 2X their
zone averages. These numbers prove that MultiPLAY is a game worth introducing
and keeping on any casino floor.
In addition to playing up to four video slot games on
the same machine at the same time, players can hit four progressives
sequentially or even hit four bonuses on one spin. Bonus rounds fill the base
game screen, and play one after the other. "It's the multi-hand video
poker experience now in a multi-game video slot for the very first time,"
said Ryan Griffin, IGT product manager for Standard
Products. "And the flexibility,
superior design and options provided by MultiPLAY Video Slots set it apart from
all the competition."
MultiPLAY Video Slots themes available today include
Cleopatra MultiPLAY Video Slots and Wolf Run MultiPLAY Video Slots. A variety
of additional themes are already in development, guaranteeing to keep casino
floors fresh with new content.
Casino operators can configure MultiPLAY video slots to
let players choose how many games they want to play at any given time.
"This option, alone, makes MultiPLAY video slots the most player-friendly
product of its kind available on the market," Griffin said.
Another benefit is the screen layout with four
equal-sized game screens, causing less eye strain and making it easy to follow
the action. Plus, each game spins independently, allowing a clear understanding
of each outcome.
