Gambling on the Ghostbusters


There must be a lot of haunted casinos around,  because the Ghostbusters are looking to come to a casino near you soon.

Venkman, Stantz, Spengler and Zeddemore will be showing their stuff this week (April 3-6, 2011) at the Indian Gaming 2011 Tradeshow and Convention in Phoenix, AZ in hopes of finding some new haunts. They, along with “The Keymaster” Louis Tully, play important roles in the entertaining Ghostbusters™ Slots from International Game Technology (IGT). The game’s iconic stars along with high-frequency bonuses and low-denomination appeal are likely to be a hit among players.

The four paranormal exterminators are still chasing Slimer, that iconic green ghost who turns up randomly but with amazing frequency throughout the base game. The little green goober adds credits, wilds and multiplier bonuses anywhere and at any time in the base game. With only a minimum bet, players become eligible for the random Slimer base game features and the Ghostbuster™ Bonus.

The Ghostbuster™ Bonus consists of four highly themed sub-bonuses: the Stay Puft Free Spins, the Are You Psychic? Pick Bonus, the Ballroom Busters ghost hunt bonus and the Progressive Pick bonus for each level. These interactive bonuses are packed with iconic clips from Columbia Pictures classic film Ghostbusters™ not to mention free games with random locked wilds and credit awards.

All the ghostbusting action plays out in exciting 3D, showcased in an attractive two-machine Universal Slant configuration with a shared 55-inch LCD overhead screens displaying bonus play and attracts.

“IGT is excited to be at Indian Gaming 2011 to show our innovative games,” said Eric Tom, Chief operating officer for IGT. “Attendees will see why our products continue to dominate the industry with a combination of fresh ideas and well-known brands that appeal to both casino operators and players.

As far as a rumored three-quel to the 1984 movie goes, it appears haunted movie theaters are going to have to wait. A possible script may have been delivered to Dr. Venkman earlier this year but there are no reports that he has even read it, let alone signed on to the project.
