There is no doubt what the most publicised launch of 2010 was. It was clearly The Lord of the Rings. This did look something of a breakthrough in the world of bonus new member to x7 machines, with its big innovation the dispensing of the classic number of winning lines feature.
Instead it boasted 243 ways to win, plus some impressive cinematic graphics that remained really faithful to the film series. It was a highly impressive slot and made some of the current offerings in online casinos look distinctly old fashioned. It was certainly a step forward in the look and play of slots.
The next evolution, in 2011, in my opinion, will be the Sex and the City Slot Machine. This is proving a massive hit in the Las Vegas casinos right now and is generating some serious revenue even in tough times for the casinos.. This is partly because it is eye catching – the machine cabinet is nine feet tall – but there is also the game play factor which is vital for it to be an online success.
The Sex and the City slot has lots of video clips from the series – including some of the all time favourites, plus an unprecedented four progressive jackpots you can win, with four different bonus games as well. It all means there is the chance to win in lots of different ways, making for a popular slot with plenty of variety.
It features the classic characters, Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha, plus Carrie’s man, of sorts, Mr.Big, who provides many of the voiceovers for the slot. This has been part of the success of the show and the slot machine. Despite it being based on a woman’s world view, there are plenty of ladies easy on the eye, which makes men enjoy the play as well as women.
The word is the Sex and the City slot machine will be coming online at some point in 2011 – and there’s no doubt its Las Vegas fans, as well as lovers of the TV series, will be ready to embrace it, even though its six long years since the last TV show was made, while the films based on the series have been profitable, but had a very mixed critical reception.
