Cutting-edge technology highlights latest products introduced by WMS
Part of WMS’ first Transmissive Reels Bluebird 2 bonus banks series, Goldfish 2 brings back the successful Goldfish theme with five new fish bonuses.
With the help of WMS’ patented Transmissive Reels technology, fish can now swim across mechanical reels to award credits, multipliers and free spins. As in the original Goldfish game, fish bonuses can be triggered at the conclusion of any spin when the extra bonus bet is made. Goldfish 2 launches with two new themes, Mermaid’s Wonders with expanding wilds, and Armada with clumped top award symbols. Both themes also feature free spin bonuses.
Once a Big Event Poker Bonus is triggered, all eligible players on the bank enter the one of four bonuses together. Players can win random credit prizes in the “Money Chip” or “Poker Pots” bonuses. And video poker fans will be delighted when the “Free Hands Poker” and “4 to a Royal” bonuses appear on their screens.
Base game action allows players to select which character will represent them in the bonus, as well as WMS’ latest innovation, the Multiplier Boost. Anytime a Multiplier Boost symbol appears on the third reel, bonus winnings can be greatly amplified by temporarily increasing a player’s Big Event Multiplier. Taking place atop the Grand Hotel, the community bonus features credit awards plus unique mini-bonuses triggered by up to 10 guests who may land on the Rail Roads, Electric Company, Water Works, Community Chest, Chance, Go!, and Free Parking!
Using two high-definition 52-inch monitors to immerse players in a massive, real-time, 3D undersea world, players sitting down at Reel ‘em In! Compete to Win! select one of four fishermen to compete for them in the three competitive community bonus rounds. When a bonus round is triggered, all eligible players on the bank will enter to cheer their characters toward the biggest fish and the greatest number of credits. In addition to community slot play, WMS’ Adaptive Gaming technology enables players to create personalized login and pass codes that track their bonus accomplishments in any casino. Players can view their past achievements through the Trophy Room, where their lifetime community bonus statistics are displayed.
Sensory Immersion gaming combines a BOSE 3 Space Surround Sound gaming chair, CPU-NXT 2 enhanced graphics, and dual screens with an emotive color-changing Top Box, allowing players to see, hear and feel every nuance of their travels. Upon activating the Warp Bonus, Time Machine players can either win a credit amount or journey through time to the Past, Present or Future Bonus. Each time period also features a wild reel feature where one to five reels randomly turn wild during any reel spin.
