Scientific Games announced that the company’s new SEINFELD slot game will be featured in its 21,094 square foot booth (No. 1126) at the Global Gaming Expo (“G2E”), September 27-29 at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas. The new, highly interactive game takes what TV Guide called one of the “greatest TV programs of all time” and turns it into an immersive, virtual slot player experience.
In partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, the SEINFELD slot game is based on the 10-time Emmy Award-winning American sitcom that ran for nine seasons from 1989-1998. Since the final season aired, SEINFELD remains a fan favorite, holding the title of highest-grossing and fastest-selling television DVD of all time.
Seinfeld’s apartment and his group of eccentric friends are the primary focus of the show and Scientific Games’ SEINFELD slot game.
The game merges the consumer-favorite hit TV series with the company’s revolutionary GAMESCAPE slot platform, which offers players a one-of-a-kind play experience. The feature-rich gameplay fully captures the SEINFELD characters’ antics, timeless humor and quirky plotlines that continue to entertain fans worldwide.
Scientific Games Group Chief Executive of Gaming, Derik Mooberry, said, “We are ecstatic to unveil the SEINFELD slot game to attendees of G2E and entertain players on casino floors soon. The eccentric and fun-loving nature of one of America’s treasured sitcoms, paired with the advanced technology of our groundbreaking GAMESCAPE cabinet, truly delivers an unforgettable slot experience that transports players all the way to 81st Street on New York City’s Upper East Side.”
The prominent five-screen cabinet features a tablet-sized touchscreen button panel and HD screens angled towards the player for the ultimate gaming and entertainment experience. Main characters Jerry Seinfeld, his ex-girlfriend Elaine Benes, George Costanza and Cosmo Kramer take center stage during bonus events that award a mystery number of random features, including WILDS, WILD reels, multipliers and more paylines. All bonuses are triggered by four oversized Jerry, Elaine, George and Kramer character symbols, showcasing the personality and appearance of each unique character.
“We’re pleased to showcase the wit, humor and antics of SEINFELD in an all-new and exciting format, as part of an interactive gaming experience which we know will appeal to all SEINFELD fans and newcomers alike,” said Greg Paul, spokesperson for Castle Rock Entertainment. “As part of the global lexicon, the hit television series is ingrained in our pop-culture with favorite moments and phrases – like Yada, Yada, Yada, Master of Your Domain, Man-Hands, Double-Dipping, The Costanza Wallet and so many more – this game is sure to reinvigorate these memories for fans.”
The technologically advanced game boasts motion gesture technology, which enables players to use their hand to become a part of the game. During the “Big Wins” celebration, the motion gesture technology enables the player to see the enormous Man-Hands of Jerry’s infamous date “catching” black-and-white cookies, oversized wallets, books and other favorite Seinfeld items.
A prime focus of the game is the “FESTIVUS WHEEL,” a mechanical wheel that awards credit prizes and a life-changing, wide-area progressive jackpot. Featured in the FESTIVUS WHEEL bonus is one of the show’s most popular characters, Frank Constanza – George’s father and ‘creator’ of the non-commercial “fake” holiday Festivus, which is celebrated on December 23.
Other highlights include the “NO MORE SOUP FOR YOU BONUS,” which displays a live video featuring “the Soup Nazi”, and the “CONTEST BONUS,” where the player will be immersed in the comedy with video clips from one of the most popular SEINFELD episodes of all time, “The Contest,” and have an opportunity to earn extra WILDS.
The company’s G2E booth No. 1126 will showcase more than 200 slot games and 100 unique game themes, as well as an array of new products and solutions from Scientific Games’ three business divisions: Gaming, Lottery and Interactive.
