Immerse Yourself in a Grease-Style Slot by Playtech and Enjoy the 50s Theme in Bowling Frenzy
- June 3, 2019 By Oliver Young -
Playtech has announced the launch of its newest title, Bowling Frenzy. The slot was designed in collaboration of the two studios SUNFOX and Vikings, and presents a 50s-themed Americana-style slot game. The main characters, inspired by Sandy and Danny from ’78 classic movie Grease, will remind you of the simpler times of diners and drive-ins and the good old rock’n’roll. The game is available in all Playtech-powered casinos.
Get Into the Bowling Alley and Pick Your Pins
You’re taken into a modern-looking bowling alley, where you will see people cheering for those who manage to put down the pins with the bowling ball. On the reels, you will see the bowling shoes, a pink old timer car, hamburger and Coke, and the playing card Royals. The Wild is a purple-lettered symbol with the blue star in the backdrop, which is the highest-paying symbol, as is the male Danny-looking guy. The Sandy-inspired girl is the next best-paying symbol. The Scatter is the symbol with the Pins.
If the Scatter lands on the three middle reels, up to 3 Pins are selected above the reel. In the base game, you need to collect 10 Pins that are found above the reels, in order to activate 10 Respins where Stacked Wilds appear on cascading reels. The bowling ball will hit the pins and the number of pins that fall will determine how many Stacked Wilds you receive.
The Wild substitutes for all symbols except for the Pins Scatter. The Scatter triggers the Feature Selection. You will need to land 3 or more Scatters in order to trigger the feature. You get to choose whether you’d like to play High Wins Free Spins, Multiplier Free Games or King Pin Cash Bonus features.
Depending on the number of Scatters you land, you will get 10 to 25 Free Spins with the High Wins Free Games, 10 to 30 with the Multiplier Free Games with Multipliers up to 5x, and up to 100x the stake prizes with the King Pin Cash Bonus features. Each feature is more rewarding than the other.
The game was developed by two of Playtech’s studios SUNFOX and Vikings, and is playable from $0.10 per spin. The striking features are enhanced with visually appealing 3D graphics, showcasing Playtech’s creative talent and signature style. The game is integrated with Playtech’s data-driven services IMS (Information Management Solution) platform granting online casino operators real-time engagement capabilities and providing communication tools to enhance the gambling experience and deliver safer messages.
Playtech’s Casino Director James Frendo said that the strongest suit of Playtech’s multiple game studio format is that each of the studios bring their own distinct qualities to the table. Saying that the game was a graphically innovative title with engaging gameplay and 50s classic retro theme, Frendo said that everyone at Playtech was very excited that SUNFOX and Vikings have worked together to create it. He said that they were confident Bowling Frenzy would appeal to both existing and new players, as well as online casino operators wishing to broaden their reach and expand their slots portfolios. The entry-level spin price would fit every slots player’s budget and the immersive special features would make everyone’s gaming top-notch. The cross-studio collaboration proved to be an amazing one, so there is no doubt that the game would be a success, just like most of Playtech’s rewarding slots.
