Back Scientific Games Unleashes Tetris in Land-Based Casinos

When you think back to old school video games you were addicted to, does Tetris come to mind? It’s been around since 1984 and maintains its popularity today - even among the kids. Did you know that billions of Tetris games have been played over the years? What’s even more mind blowing is that there have been in excess of 500 million mobile downloads to date! Scientific Games announced the unveiling of its new ‘Tetris Super Jackpot’ land-based slot in Las Vegas earlier this month. Sure to draw crowds on casino floors, the game is available on the company’s patented TwinStar J43 cabinet, which features a large 43-inch arced screen with 4K Ultra HD quality.

The game is based on colorful puzzle pieces that fit together, known by the much fancier name of ‘Tetrimino’. The bonus is a free spins feature, where players will see two Tetriminos appear at the top of the reels prior to every spin. These little guys are essential for awarding multipliers and giving players a shot at the mystery progressive jackpot.

Maya Rogers, Chief Executive Officer of Blue Planet Software, sole agent for the Tetris brand, said, "We are thrilled to partner with Scientific Games on the first-ever launch of a Tetris-themed slot machine. The popularity of Tetris, which spans generations and has evolved into a lifestyle brand among fans worldwide, makes Tetris Super Jackpot a fun, natural fit for a casino slot gaming experience."

Scientific Games Group Chief Executive, Gaming, Derik Mooberry commented: "The launch of our new Tetris-themed game is doubly exciting for Scientific Games because it infuses an incredibly popular and enduring video game brand with our newest and most sophisticated slot cabinet yet – the TwinStar J43 with an attention-grabbing, ultra high-definition and unique curved portrait display."

The TwinStar cabinet was released in 2015. It’s the first time Scientific’s Bally and WMS games have been available on the same platform. Games like Quick Hit and Goldfish Deluxe are just a couple of the games burning up the reels in a casino near you.

The good games always debut in Vegas but not to worry, it won’t be long until it makes its way across the US and beyond. Who knows, we may see Tetris become available online for real money soon.
