Platinum MPX Cabinet Now Delivering Premium Entertainment
Following recent initial placements and a strong preview showing at last yearâ€™s G2E, Platinum MPX officially debuts at G2E 2014 with a range of exciting content. The Companyâ€™s newest premium participation platform, Platinum MPX offers a completely new gaming entertainment experience thanks to a large 40-inch 1080p high definition LCD display and specifically-designed games that fully complement the capabilities of this new cabinet. The Platinum MPX cabinet offers a touchscreen, fully-customizable button panel, runway lighting integrated with the game play to complement the high quality visuals, and six custom speakers, two of which are embedded in the interactive sound chair with Earthquake Shakersâ„˘ technology.
New games on display for the Platinum MPX cabinet at G2E 2014 include:
- Dracula â€“ Beautifully rendered artwork brings a modern take to a classic tale in Multimedia Gamesâ€™ newest standout game. In the showcase three-stage Dracula Bonus, players get a number of picks per stage â€“ including bats, wolves and coffins â€“ with each stage ending in a spin of the wheel. Players pick an object to reveal Dracula (awarding an increased jackpot tier), a Bride of Dracula (boosting credit prizes on the wheel), or a â€śSpinâ€ť symbol (triggers the wheel to spin at the current level). As players enter the Vampire Hunter Free Spin bonus, they select a theme symbol which turns into a vampire wild symbol and is staked to a reel position, remaining in place until it is part of a winning combination at which point it turns to dust and disappears.
- The Valkyriesâ„˘ â€“ Based on the Norse mythological figures, The Valkyries boosts playersâ€™ winning powers through its five-tier linked progressive feature, with the top tier awarded when 14 Jackpot symbols land. The highlight Expanding Reels bonus is triggered as a Valkyrie sends lightning bolts to start the expanding reels, growing up to four additional rows with ten additional paylines per row for a total of 80 paylines. In this exciting bonus, players can win a variety of prizes including progressive jackpots or free spins.
