Check in, gather your bags and take the elevator to the top floor, where the MONOPOLY™ board comes to life in MONOPOLY™ Grand Hotel® Big Event®. Watch guests and your favorite characters as they dart around the board in real-time 3-D graphics. Thanks to WMS’ Artificial Random Intelligence Algorithm (ARIA) technology, players get a unique bonus experience every time. Add 3-Reel Transmissive Reels® BLUEBIRD®2 base games and you’re set for some exciting Community Gaming® action from WMS. Base game action is filled with excitement as players select which character will represent them in the bonus, as well as WMS’ latest innovation, the Multiplier Boost. Anytime a Multiplier Boost symbol appears on the third reel, bonus winnings can be amplified by temporarily increasing a player’s Big Event Multiplier. When the Big Event triggers, hold on to your seats. Taking place atop the Grand Hotel, the community bonus features credit awards plus unique mini-bonuses triggered by up to 10 guests who may land on the Rail Roads, Electric Company, Water Works, Community Chest, Chance, Go, and Free Parking. With ARIA technology, you never know what bonus experience you’re in for. Three-Reel Transmissive Reels, Community Gaming and endless possible bonus experiences make MONOPOLY Grand Hotel Big Event another slot innovation from WMS.

WMS—Big Event® Poker

WMS is proud to introduce the first-ever combination of video poker and WMS’ innovative Community Gaming® product category in Big Event® Poker. Players can enjoy the video poker paytables they know and love, and eligible players making the two-credit extra bet will enjoy randomly triggered Big Event bonuses for a chance at the big wins. Once a Big Event Poker Bonus is triggered, all eligible players on the bank enter one of four bonuses together. Players can win random credit prizes in the Money Chip or Poker Pots bonuses. And video poker fans are sure to be delighted when the Free Hands Poker and 4 to a Royal bonuses appear on their screens. In the 4 to a Royal bonus, players are dealt four cards to a Royal Flush, and then individually a fifth dealt card is revealed to see if one or more players on the bank landed the Royal Flush. In Free Hands Poker, players are awarded seven free video poker hands. Even better, each of the free video poker hands pays from a super paytable with increased payouts for every winning hand. Video poker and slot players alike are sure to play and win together when they see Big Event Poker on the casino floor.

IGT—Pony Express™ Video Slots
Take a journey into the Wild West with this new MegaJackpots® theme. Pony Express™ Video Slots have a Group Play feature, allowing multiple players to enter the bonus at the same time. They also provide local, linked progressive capability—up to 20 machines can be linked using the IGT Progressive Controller. Pony Express Video Slots feature 5 reels, 25 paylines and Easy Bet wagering with a 125-credit maximum bet. This new theme also has scatter pays and Wild symbols. The fast-paced bonus game—which can be triggered at any time during play—awards a primary Pony Express bonus to one player and a secondary Bonus Ride to selected additional players. In the Pony Express bonus, a player selects one of eight upper panels and one lower panel. Each panel reveals credit values or a Win All, Stopper or Extra Life symbol. If all eight panels are selected, the player chooses one of three golden doors to reveal a final credit amount. The player is awarded the sum of all of the bonus wins. Players select one of the eight destinations to reveal a credit value. Players then select a second destination to reveal either another credit value or a multiplier. The total secondary bonus award equals the credit value times the multiplier amount.
