There is good news for “Sex and the City” fans. Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, and Samantha have made their way to the casino, and they are ready to give every player a thrill. International Game Technology (IGT) has teamed up with HBO to create Sex and the City slot machines. The HBO series that has become so popular is now part of IGT’s popular library of television and movie based games. If the popularity of the show is any indication, players from all over the world will be flocking to casinos for a chance to play this game.
Details of Sex and the City Slot Machines
To start, it is important to realize that this game is a “first” on many levels. Sex and the City is the first MegaJackpots game to offer the MultiPLAY feature. As a multi-level progressive players never have to worry about the chance to win big – this is built into the game. Of course, large jackpots are not the only thing you get with this game. The MutliPLAY feature gives you the chance to play up to four games at the same time. With four games in progress, and different outcomes on each one, you have the ability to win four times the money.
The configuration of Sex and the City slot machines is as follows: five reels, 30+20-Line, 50-Credit x 4. Each game has 30 paylines along with the ability to make a 20 credit side wager. If you want to cover all four games you will have to bet 200 credits per spin. Do you want to bet the maximum amount? In this case, you will wager three credits per line across four games, for a total of 600 credits.
Even though this is a penny game, you still have to part with $6 to make a maximum wager. While this may sound like a lot, many extras, including five top level bonus games, make it well worth the money.
One of the biggest draws of Sex and the City slots is the MegaJackpots bonus feature. Although your chance of winning is steep, you have the opportunity to make out like a bandit if the right symbols appear on any of the four games that you are playing.
Additionally, players have the ability to activate five unique bonus games. With all four games activated, IGT has said that the bonus hit frequency is approximately 1 in 25 plays.
The five bonus games include: Simply Fabulous!, Progressive Pick Bonus, Perfect Present Bonus, Hello Lover! Bonus, and Change of Dress Bonus.
With the Simply Fabulous! bonus, players select from several jewelry boxes which when put together reveal the total award.
Perfect Present is a free game bonus that triggers up to 15 gift boxes to appear on the screen. The reels that contain these bonuses turn into scatter plays, and from there bonuses are awarded.
For many, the Change of Dress bonus is the best. The reason for this is simple: you get to choose your favorite character from the show and change her outfit while collecting big prizes along the way.
With the Hello Lover! bonus you win five free spins as well as a “locking” symbol that stays the same throughout and increases your chance of winning.
James Costos, HBO Licensing and Retail Vice President said it best in a recent statement to the press: “We made sure the game would resonate with fans by including iconic moments and quotes from the series, including everyone’s favorite Carrie mantra that is repeated by devotees around the world – ‘hello lover’.”
As of December 2009, Sex and the City slot machines have been installed in many Nevada casinos. As approvals come through, this game is sure to make its way into establishments across the country. This is sure to please Sex and the City fans!
