LAS VEGAS, Sept. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Everi Holdings Inc. (NYSE:EVRI) (“Everi” or the “Company”), the casino gaming industry’s single source provider of gaming products and payments solutions, announced that its Local-Area Progressive video slot – Casablanca – has made its market debut at Boyd Gaming’s properties in six states: Nevada, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas and Mississippi.
Casablanca is based on the 1942 timeless American romantic drama, which ranks second on the American Film Institute’s “100 Greatest American Movies of All Time list.”
Casablanca leverages the unique characteristics of Everi’s newly-deployed Empire MPX™ cabinet and features iconic entertainment elements from the classic film to truly elevate slot game play. The Empire MPX cabinet provides operators with flexible bank configurations which save casino floor space along with a 43-inch full HD display, game-controlled lighting with backlight feature and a new ergonomic LCD button deck.
A five-reel, 30-line video game, Casablanca offers multiple exciting bonus features, including the Rick’s Café bonus featuring the classic song, “As Time Goes By.” In addition, the new Casablanca game perfectly captures the timeless chemistry between Rick Blaine and Ilsa Lund to bring the romance and adventure of Rick’s Café Americain to life on casino floors.
“For decades, Casablanca has thrilled fans of all ages and this new game captures the joy and emotion of one of the all-time great feature films and combines it with exciting bonus rounds, including the chance to win a progressive jackpot,” said Dean Ehrlich, Executive Vice President and Games Business Leader for Everi. “Since its debut, Casablanca has quickly found a strong fan base. It’s an exciting game that’s clearly resonating with players.”
The Casablanca slot game was created in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
