Scientific Games Launches TETRIS™ Super Jackpots in Quick Hit® Slots App
LAS VEGAS – June 01, 2018 – Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) (“Scientific Games” or the “Company”) announced today that its SG Social division launched the TETRIS Super Jackpots slot within its Quick Hit Slots mobile and Facebook apps. The launch celebrates the iconic puzzle game just in time for WORLD TETRIS DAY on June 6.
TETRIS Super Jackpots, playable in full portrait mode, brings keystone elements of the fan-favorite game to life in an exciting and refreshing slot format. The game includes graphics and features that reflect the challenging fun of TETRIS in combination with the anticipation for potential big wins of modern slots.
Aaron Schurman, Managing Director of SG Social, said, “TETRIS Super Jackpots is a fantastic addition to Quick Hit Slots! TETRIS is one of the most recognized video game brands in the world and a natural fit for social slots with its engaging gameplay and sense of anticipation. We’re thrilled to share this great title with our players.”
Within TETRIS Super Jackpots, a specially added Tetrimino feature plays a starring role. It can activate on any spin, placing one or two Tetriminos randomly on or above the reels. Any symbols covered by a Tetrimino are randomly replaced by a base symbol, creating bigger chances for winning combinations.
To support the launch, the Quick Hit Slots app will feature a TETRIS-themed collectible minigame for a limited time. When players spin on any slot across the entire app, they’ll be able to collect Tetrimino pieces. When the player triggers the minigame, the Tetriminos they collected will fall into place and players will receive in-game rewards.
The Quick Hit Slots app is one of SG Social’s five social casino apps, all of which are available on the App Store, Google Play, and Facebook.
