Following its official launch at the NIGA Indian gaming trade show and convention in April, Novomatic has been rolling out its Thunder Cash link progressive across US casinos.
The Class III game opened first at the Pechanga Resort and Casino in California and now hundreds are going into over 30 other venues, reports the company.
The link package is a player-selectable multi-denominational and multi-level jackpot with a mix of successful games including Emperor’s China, Empress of the Pyramids and The Great Conqueror and the play style with multiple bonus triggers and a "coin respin" is popular.
The link comes with the Panthera Curve 1.43, VIP Lounge Curve 1.43 and also the Novostar VIP Royal 2.65 cabinets.
Said Mel Adair, managing partner at A&W Enterprises in Oklahoma: “This package design is unique and grabs the players’ attention from across the floor. The package was a smart move to attract players. Familiar game mechanics and strong merchandising is the p4erffct combination and we are getting return players who are telling their friends about these games. The design differentiates this progressive link from similar style progressives games that have been on slot floors for some time.”
