Europe – Wonder Wheels rolls into Europe with the release of BatmanBy Phil - 30 June 2015
Aristocrat Technologies’ hugely popular Wonder Wheels concept has been officially released for deployment in Europe with the first title in the series, Batman Classic TV Series Slot Game, scheduled for its first installations in July and August.
At almost 3.2m (10’ 6”) high, the game towers above others on the casino floor, whilst the action comes to life in Aristocrat’s Helix cabinet, paired with a large portrait-style top-box screen and unique, mechanical triple wheel package for bonuses, all punctuated with Aristocrat’s (optional) sensory-busting surround sound iChair. Each player gets their own wheel, plus a bonusing wheel for the game-bank, allowing players on the bank to continue uninterrupted when another player hits a trigger and engages wheel-mode.
Powered by Wonder Wheels, Batman Classic TV Series Slot Game puts a triple spin on fun on gaming floors, engaging players in all the kitsch, fun and tongue-in-cheek action of the landmark 1960s TV series featuring Adam West, complete with original video clips, sounds and exciting game play featuring Batman and Robin, The Riddler, The Joker and Catwoman. With a static grand jackpot of €10,000 linked across paired pods, game play is enhanced by stacked wilds, six themed bonus features and a highly anticipatory wheel feature trigger.
Erik-Jan van den Berg, Aristocrat’s newly appointed Director of Sales for EMEA, said: “Even before its release, Batman™ Classic TV Series powered by Wonder Wheels topped industry surveys, being named among the most anticipated game releases by slot managers. Those expectations have certainly been realised in North and Latin America, where the game has been delivering supreme levels of performance. We are extremely excited at the prospect of rolling out what will be the first in a long line of next-generation gaming operations star performers and the original Batman theming is a great way to kick off the campaign.”
