Sep 29 15
Lionsgate announced that the company has partnered with International Game Technology PLC to create Orange Is the New Black Slots. Orange Is the New Black Slots launched on IGT's social gaming mobile and desktop website, DoubleDown Casino, the same day that IGT unveiled two casino versions of the game at the 2015 Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas. This marks the first time that IGT has launched a marquee licensed brand on the company's DoubleDown Casino app concurrently with the debut of a land-based casino version of the game. Created by iconic showrunner Jenji Kohan and based on the true story of Piper Kerman, Orange Is the New Black follows the adventures of a prison inmate as she navigates the tricky and sometimes comical culture that is life behind bars. Lead actress Taylor Schilling's character, Piper, is featured prominently in the games. Inspired by one of the most-watched series on Netflix, IGT's social casino game will appeal to fans of the show with original imagery and catchy music. Set on a five-reel, 30-payline configuration, the game transports players to a thrilling free spin feature that offers up to 15 free spins and the opportunity to receive a 2X to 10X multiplier. The IGT Orange Is the New Black Video Slots for casinos will offer two captivating game themes on the company's Center Stage Duo cabinet. Each game can award one of three multi-level progressive awards displayed on the impressive 55" top screen. The Orange game features completely new math in a 4X5 reel configuration and the Black game displays a 3X5 reel in a 30 payline game. Players can experience clips, music, characters and sound bites from the award-winning series. The two game themes' bonus features will entice fans of the show with four character-driven bonus rounds, including Crazy Eyes' Wild Feature, Alex's More Symbols Feature, Mendoza's Double Game Feature, and Piper's ALL FEATURES! showcase bonus, which combines all characters' bonus rounds together for big player rewards.
