Elvis Has Entered The Building

January 30, 2008 | Other

The much anticipated Elvis Multi-Strike online slot machine game launched by Wagerworks last week (see previous Online-Casinos.com/InfoPowa report) is proving popular at WW licensee sites across the Internet. Based on an original fave from Wagerworks parent IGT for the land-based casino industry, the Elvis brand is one applauded for quality and success.
The online version features the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll himself, Elvis Presley in a feature-rich slot game that Wagerworks boasts is like playing three games at once, with the chance to multiply payline wins for king-sized awards. Also featured are two bonus rounds where the sounds, sights and songs of the undisputed rock ‘n’ roll legend take players back in time to a memorable Las Vegas of the seventies.
Loaded with features, music and pictures of Elvis Presley, together with memorable video footage of some of his most legendary performances, the new game is already proving to be a big hit with all levels of players.
Betting on all 60 win lines activates 3 levels of reels. Players advance up the selected levels with any payline wins, with the wins on the 2nd and 3rd levels being multiplied by 2x and 4x respectively. Players can also advance with the Free Ride feature, which is earned with a combination of any three Photo Memories and/or Wild Bonus symbols.
One of the two unique WagerWorks game Bonus features is the Fan-O-Meter Bonus, which presents players with the chance to bet on the crowd’s rousing applause to an Elvis song of their choice. The player selects a concert displayed on one of five television screens, and during the song the crowd goes into celebratory frenzy at different points in the performance. The Fan-O-Meter at the side of the screen indicates the strength of the applause; the louder the applause, the higher the payout.
In the Photo Memories bonus feature, pressing the Spin button starts an arrow spinning on a record surrounded by a collection of Elvis photos. When the arrow stops on a photo, it adds an award to the player’s bonus total and is replaced with a Collect symbol.
As the bonus game progresses, additional arrows are added up to a maximum of eight, and the values of the photos increase. However, as photos are collected, more Collect symbols are added to the record, and if an arrow points to a Collect symbol, the bonus is over.
Ernie Lafky, executive producer at WagerWorks, says: “When developing a branded game, we go to great lengths to ‘get it right’. This means not only following the licensor’s style guide and specific rules for representing the brand, but really understanding what the brand is all about.
“The reaction of our clients to this game has been phenomenal. Elvis Multi-Strike offers huge opportunities to attract and retain players, due to the brand and the innovative game format.  There is nothing else like this available in the market”.
