by Gayle Mitchell
This lesson is part 1 of slot games 2010 previews
as presented by five innovative slot makers-- Aristocrat, Atronic,
Bally, IGT and Wms Gaming.
This peek at the future of slot games placed at land-based casinos is
always exciting and anticipated by slot players. These newer slots were
introduced at Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in November/09.
Some of these slot games are already on the casino floor; others will
be along soon for you to ‘give them a spin’.
This year, as usual, does not disappoint. These 5 creative companies
have again provided new features and bonus events that are sure to be
on your ‘to play list’ for your next casino visit.
Enjoy the hunt in the slot games playground of the future.
Aristocrat: Slot games 2010
First up with a preview is the innovative Aussie game maker,
Kick open the swingin’ saloon doors and walk into an old time barroom
full of fun in Aristocrat’s Beat the Bandits, a three level progressive
jackpot which leads the player through a two stage event in order to
win the jackpots. On triggering the jackpot feature, you play against
Madam Red in a dice face-off. If you are lucky enough to roll a double
you move through into the Granny Game, Bandito Game or Gambler Gamer
features to win the jackpot prizes.
Beat the Bandits rides into town with two fun launch games: Jungle Joe
Searching High and Low and Fortune Princess.
Also, Aristocrat’s new Kentucky Derby RFX is a linked progressive
product. The excitement and tradition of the Derby is brought to the
The elegance, excitement and luck of China’s most famous and intriguing
city come to life in dazzling detail in Beijing Bonanza that includes a
tournament feature where players compete against each other and a free
games bonus that is awarded to all players on the bank.
Next, is Jeff Foxworthy’s Redneck Rumble, Aristocrat’s newest
progressive. Rednecks, rabbit ear antenna TVs, bug lights, fishin’
poles, trucks, beer cans and trailers never looked so good for these
slot games 2010. The slot allows players to win one of three
progressive jackpots, free games and credits in the second screen bonus
What if there were 1,024 ways for players to win? Now Aristocrat, the
company famous for the best math in the business, introduces Xtra Reel
Power. The game gives players up to 1,024 ways to win with every spin
with a 40 credit minimum bet to cover all reels.
Aristocrat will also be showing the GEN7 video slots JAWS, Hit the
Heights, The Sopranos Video, Mega Millioni$er, FA FA FA Fortune King
and GEN7 Xtreme Mystery.
Aristocrat’s incredible line of new slot games 2010 includes Jackpot
Royale, Player’s World Ultimate, Player’s World by Demand, Banana King,
Sun & Moon Total Eclipse Progressives, Nile Princess, a line of
new Power Pay and Reel Power titles and new 100 Line and 50 Line
New titles include the 5-reel Triple Standalone Progressives
Hillbillions and Trophy of Olympus. Three-reelers include Pow-Tastic
7s, Same Way Sevens and Skin Deep Cherries.
With these offerings, Aristocrat continues to fascinate the industry
with innovative slots.
Atronic: Slot games 2010
Staying with the A's, Atronic offers exciting linked, progressive, and
community games and multi-functional controllers along with stand-alone
core game titles. Let's review the lineup:
Atronic is now adding a fourth title to its new multi-bonus
progressive, link, Stargate based on the popular film and TV series.
Each title offers five distinct bonuses and four progressive levels.
Players activate the Stargate bonus by wagering max lines plus a
10-credit bonus bet. Already installed in numerous locations worldwide,
the North American slot games 2010 version will be 25-line, 5-reel
games with an additional forced bonus bet and a variety of exciting
Three Stooges incorporates the slapstick hi-jinks of Curly, Larry and
Moe and transports players back in time with a variety of
black-and-white video clips. Three levels of progressives are tied to
each stooge and simultaneous, multi-tiered bonus rounds add to the
The Passion Slots cabinet stands at an impressive 8 feet tall and
features a 4th reel with multiplier symbols and bonus game triggers.
Return of the Sphinx is a 3 level progressive and non-linear paytable
that rewards high-bets.
Jewelly, one of the bonus slot games of 2010 is a stand-alone
progressive linked to a multi-game lineup. To make Jewelly appear,
players wager on all pay-lines and also bet on an extra 5 credits times
the current line bet during standard game play.
Because Jewelly bonuses are activated by a side wager, the base games
keep their bonus games intact. Any player can switch from game to game
on the same terminal and still have access to the progressives.
Atronic introduces Gameboss, an innovative entry in slot games 2010.
The slot has a linked gaming controller that connects multiple slots
thus enabling on the fly, on-demand switching between multiple
progressives, tournaments, or community games. An additional feature is
an overhead screen to a 15-game progressive with corresponding overhead
display to a 10-game linked community title.
Gameboss can transform Bingo Factory, the only bingo-based community
casino game on the North American market. It's a five-reel, 50-payline
game that allows qualified players to compete together, and features a
two-level progressive as part of the bonus.
To complete the Atronic lineup, there are core games that remain. Many
of those games include special features such as 'wild stays until it
pays'. When this feature is activated, all wilds stay on the screen
until they become part of a winning combination.
That sums up Atronic's slot games 2010 previews – a winning
combination, to be sure.
Bally: Slot Games 2010
Bally featured approximately 214 unique game titles and more than 300
total games for Class III, Class II and video lottery=VLT markets
worldwide at the show. It was Bally’s largest G2E games showcase ever,
reflecting its commitment to increase its games portfolio in fiscal
year 2010 by 100 percent.
This is the part I like to hear: "Bally will introduce two sleek new
cabinets at G2E. Key enhancements include lowered button decks with
integrated armrests for player comfort; new OLED and programmable video
buttons for ease of play.
A custom-designed stereo sound bar provides an extraordinary
range of audiophile sound that cuts through noisy casino environments.

with a new level of comfort and engagement. The video display and
armrests are slanted at the ideal angles for optimal player comfort,
thereby reducing fatigue and enhancing player enjoyment."
There is also Bally’s new Spinnation series of spinning-wheel
video and mechanical-reel slots. These distinctive games feature a
mystery or symbol-triggered spinning-wheel bonus top box.
Some of the slot games 2010 featured in this series include Hot Shot
Cash Wheel, Monte Carlo Royale and Cash Wheel.
One of the most exciting slot games 2010 in Bally's lineup is Cash
Spin, an industry first. This breakthrough game features a spinning
wheel on the top two-thirds of the video display above the mechanical
reels. In the bonus round, the player actually spins the wheel on the
touch-enabled screen. This USpin feature will also be available on Cash
Following on the success of its first two Digital Tower games,
Fireball and 77777 Jackpot, Bally introduces three new slot
