Aristocrat is to launch Puerto Rico’s first wide area progressive on the Batman Classic TV Series Slot Game Powered by Wonder Wheels product.
The wide area progressive contract is exclusive to Aristocrat in partnership with the Puerto Rico Tourism Company (PRTC). Under terms of the contract, a total of 88 Batman Classic TV Series Slot Game Powered by Wonder Wheels games will be placed in and linked across all 22 casinos in Puerto Rico. All games will go live across the island on November 25.
Additionally, the video slot game’s $250,000 startup jackpot is the largest in Puerto Rico.
Andy Viera, Director of Gaming for the PRTC, said: “This is another exciting milestone in the history of gaming in Puerto Rico, one of the most vibrant jurisdictions in the world. We are happy to partner with Aristocrat to bring our first and only wide area progressive to life, especially on a game that has been proven to attract players, such as the Batman Classic TV Series Slot Game.”
“We are very pleased to enter into this new agreement with the PRTC to bring Puerto Rico’s first wide area progressive to the jurisdiction. The Batman Classic TV Series Slot Game has been very successful in the field across North America, and we have every reason to expect players across Puerto Rico will enjoy the game’s mix of classic TV content, the independent wheel function, and of course, the wide area progressive and the island’s largest potential jackpot,” said Aristocrat Vice President of Gaming Operations Dallas Orchard.
Batman Classic TV Series Slot Game Powered by Wonder Wheels puts a triple spin on fun on the casino floor. The exciting $250,000 multi-site progressive game features still and video imagery from the classic TV series with Adam West and three mechanical wheels that increase player engagement. Game play is enhanced by stacked wilds, six themed bonus features, video clips from the TV series, and a highly anticipatory wheel feature trigger.
Completely new to the industry is the independent wheel function of Wonder Wheels, which allows the players on the bank to continue uninterrupted when another player hits a trigger and engages wheel-mode.
At 10.5 feet tall, the game towers above others on the casino floor. The action comes to life in Aristocrat’s new Helix cabinet paired with a large portrait-style top-box screen for bonuses and is punctuated with Aristocrat’s sensory-busting surround sound iChair.
