Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) (“Scientific Games” or the “Company”) today announced the launch of its first Tetris™-themed slot game, Tetris Super Jackpot.
The game debuts on Scientific Games’ cutting-edge new TwinStar J43 gaming platform, featuring a 43-inch curved portrait display; a cinematic, 4K Ultra High-Definition game-play experience; highly integrated, game-synchronized, emotive lighting; and the latest stereo surround sound; among numerous other features.
Maya Rogers, Chief Executive Officer of Blue Planet Software, sole agent for the Tetris brand, said, “We are thrilled to partner with Scientific Games on the first-ever launch of a Tetris-themed slot machine. The popularity of Tetris, which spans generations and has evolved into a lifestyle brand among fans worldwide, makes Tetris Super Jackpot a fun, natural fit for a casino slot gaming experience.”
Scientific Games’ Tetris Super Jackpot adds exciting visual features, a free games bonus, and the chance to win a mystery progressive jackpot to an iconic brand that has been a player favorite across the globe for more than 32 years.
Scientific Games Group Chief Executive, Gaming Derik Mooberry said, “The launch of our new Tetris-themed game is doubly exciting for Scientific Games because it infuses an incredibly popular and enduring video game brand with our newest and most sophisticated slot cabinet yet – the TwinStar J43 with an attention-grabbing, ultra high-definition and unique curved portrait display.”
Game-play excitement is centered around a Tetris-style free games bonus which highlights the brand’s distinctive Tetrimino playing pieces. During the bonus, the player watches in anticipation as two Tetriminos fall on top of the reels before each free spin – awarding multipliers or the mystery jackpot depending on which symbol the Tetriminos land on.
Scientific Games’ Tetris Super Jackpot slot machine was inspired by the popular electronic puzzle video game which debuted in 1984 and has been called by many media and fans as one of the ‘greatest games of all time’.
