Over the last few years the Ghostbusters have infected our video game consoles and crept into just about every facet of our lives, all in the name of revering a great property and praying for a next entry. Now they’re looking to hit us where it hurts … our wallets!
Ghost-tracking Psycho Kinetic Energy meters will be going crazy at MGM Resorts International properties when the frighteningly fun Ghostbusters Slots come to The Strip as part of a 30-day, exclusive first-to-market partnership with International Game Technology. The Ghostbusters Slots featuring Slimer, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and the hilarious Ghostbusters team were launched throughout the MGM Resorts’ Las Vegas properties on Monday, September 19.
Debuting on IGT’s new Center Stage Duo model, the game features the mischievous and lovable character Slimer teasing, mocking and awarding players with antics, multipliers and credits as he leads them through the game. A vivid 55-inch overhead LCD screen and chest-pumping MEGAfx Surround Chairs will send players’ adrenaline racing during spectacular bonus rounds including:
- Ballroom Busters Pick Bonus: Holdin! Smokin! Ready! Players are awarded five proton shots to blow up the ballroom to find ghosts.
- Stay Puft Free Games Feature: Marshmallows fall from the sky, stick to symbols and turn them wild during this sweet feature.
- Are You Psychic? Bonus: Guess the correct card to win credits and advance to the next round!
- Paranormal Pick Bonus: Five levels of Paranormal Pick Bonuses allow players to select from phantasm clouds for a chance to win the progressive jackpot.
“Based on the blockbuster film franchise from Sony Pictures, the memorable characters, a catchy song and many unforgettable scenes have made Ghostbusters a pop culture mainstay, and I think we’ve captured the fun of the brand in the Ghostbusters Slots,” said Eric Tom, executive vice president, North America Sales and Global Operations. “Players will be thrilled by the constant action and our graphic and sound technology will make for a ghoulishly good time.”
Sherri Gilligan, senior vice president of marketing for MGM Resorts International, said, “Our guests deserve to have an amazing experience each time they arrive at one of our properties and the Ghostbusters Slots will add to that overall experience. The partnership with IGT allows us to create new opportunities for our guests and this is another example of an exclusive game we will feature on the casino floors throughout our company during the festive Halloween season.”
