LAS VEGAS, Oct. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) ("Scientific Games" or the "Company") and Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa ("Borgata") have teamed up to bring the first Willy Wonka World of Wonka wide-area progressive ("WAP") slot games on Scientific Games' groundbreaking Gamescape platform to the Atlantic City casino resort.
The recent launch introduces players to the wonder of Willy Wonka through a highly entertaining play experience while adding beauty and attraction to Borgata's casino floor. Willy Wonka World of Wonka is the first game to be released by Scientific Games on the Gamescape cabinet and is set to roll out to other casinos in the coming months.
"We are honored and excited to be able to offer the engaging World of Wonka slot game to our guests here at Borgata," said Ted Herzchel, Vice President of Slot Operations for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. "It is an eye-catching display that matches Borgata's commitment to gaming and entertainment here at our resort. World of Wonka offers our players a uniquely magical experience that they want to share with others."
Like the hit movie that made Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory a timeless classic, the game takes players on an unforgettable musical journey through the deliciously delightful, whimsically wonderful world of Willy Wonka featuring every kind of chocolate and sweet treat imaginable. It's a land of chocolate waterfalls, giant lollipops, edible flowers, and, of course, Oompa Loompas.
This nonstop, mouth-watering game is brought to life by Scientific Games' revolutionary Gamescape cabinet. Featuring three vivid, high-definition displays that angle toward the player, and a 40-inch top screen, players will feel the sensation of being wrapped inside Wonka's magical world. Additionally, an ergonomic 10.4-inch tablet multi-touch button panel display integrates game play to coordinate graphics across multiple displays. The result is five unique screens that virtually combine to create an expanded platform for stunning graphics and seamless motion.
The Gamescape platform also features new motion sensor technology that allows for seamless interaction between the player's hand and the game.
Willy Wonka World of Wonka comes to life on the casino floor with delectable bonus features including Cloning, Oopma Loompa, Bonus Respin, Wonka Winko, Free Spins, World of Wonka Wheel, Chocolate River and Golden Ticket.
Scientific Games' Group Chief Executive of Gaming Derik Mooberry said, "World of Wonka is a superb example of Scientific Games' leading-edge creativity and innovation. With its mix of technology and video graphics, the game transports players back to the first time they saw Charlie Bucket run down the street waving his Golden Ticket. We hope to give Borgata guests that same thrill on this engaging journey with Willy Wonka and friends."
