The revolutionary Edge X slot gaming cabinet debuted to rave reviews at the Indian Gaming Tradeshow and Convention in San Diego, California, earlier this year.
It didn’t take long for Aristocrat Technologies, Inc., one of the world’s leading gaming developers and providers, to announce it was rolling out its hot, new product nationwide.
Look for Madonna and FarmVille themed games appearing in Edge X cabinet technology to pop up at casino properties in the Region very soon if they’re not already there.
What makes Edge X so special? You can’t miss the two stacked, horizontal, curved 43-inch cinematic LCD screens featuring panoramic views, stereo symphonic surround sound, and virtual button deck.
You can imagine that such a game will be mighty hard to ignore when it’s on the casino floor, especially featuring the images, music, and essence of the “Material Girl,” Madonna.
The Madonna slot in the Edge X cabinet will offer players “Mighty Cash” hold and spin multipliers, free games, and a “Like a Virgin” wheel bonus.
The game comes with a grand jackpot that starts at $250,000 when configured as a multi-site progressive, or $5,000 for a single-site progressive.
FarmVille is already an established social game phenomenon via the FarmVille Social Builder and FarmVille Social games that are familiar to multitudes of players around the world.
All of the favorite characters, farm animals, and livestock from the game will be appearing in Edge X cabinet technology featuring “Mighty Cash” hold and spin multipliers and, of course, free games. The single on-site progressive has grand jackpot values of $2,500 or $5,000.
Two other pop culture favorites that will be featured in Edge X cabinetry will be “Walking Dead 3” and “Mad Max Fury Road”.
