Scientific Games announced a new partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products and Gracie Films to create a themed slot machine based on the longest running scripted television series THE SIMPSONS. The never before seen Gamescape cabinet was officially unveiled in Scientific Games' booth #1126 at the Global Gaming Expo ("G2E"). The slot theme will star Homer and Marge Simpson, Moe, Apu, Chief Wiggum and many other iconic characters from the show.
"THE SIMPSONS game on our new Gamescape cabinet combines one of the most recognizable and beloved brands in the world with some of the greatest innovations in the gaming industry," said Derik Mooberry, Scientific Games' group chief executive, gaming. "We are extremely proud to work closely with Fox Consumer Products and Gracie Films on the development of this game, and believe players around the globe will be thrilled with the experience."
"Our teams worked extremely hard to ensure the first SIMPSONS-themed slot machine is a true testament to the brand, providing a truly immersive experience," said Jeffrey Godsick, president of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products. "With dynamic new content, attention to detail -and a few surprises- Scientific Games is creating an entertaining gaming experience that we know fans will enjoy."
The pioneering Gamescape cabinet utilizes three vivid, high-definition displays that angle toward the player, and a 40-inch curved top screen that surrounds the player. Additionally, an ergonomic 10.4-inch tablet button panel integrates gameplay to coordinate graphics across multiple displays. The result is five unique screens that virtually combine to create an expanded platform for stunning graphics and seamless motion.
Lighting around the edge of each display envelops the player. An integrated sound bar completes the sensory experience by delivering 3D stereo sound, without the need for a sound chair. The sound bar matches the width of the cabinet so that stereo sound moves not only from right to left but up and down as well.
