The Global Gaming Expo (aka G2E aka the “slot convention”) is just over a month away and gaming manufacturers are beginning to tease some of the games that will be on display. This week Konami announced that they will release a Frogger slot machine.
I remember playing Frogger at the bodega down the street when I was growing up. I think I’ll be giddy like a child when I see the slot machine in person next month.
Here are some of the specs on the Frogger slot machine from Konami:
The upcoming landmark debut of Frogger themed video slots signifies Konami’s latest homegrown IP release from Konami Digital Entertainment to the casino gaming industry. The first Frogger slot machines will be unveiled at G2E on Konami’s tall-top Podium MonumentTM cabinet.
“Frogger has remained one of the world’s most singularly recognizable video games for more than 30 years, and players have the chance to experience their favorite Frogger features with a real- money casino spin,” said Reback. “While the primary game carries modernized character art paired alongside our proven video slot features and math, the game’s mystery Frogger Bonus allows players to relive the classic road and river crossing course in retro-pixelated glory. Arcade-animated tractors push away the reel strips and players are awarded three ‘lives’ as they watch the frog hop its way to increasing bonus awards across the lower screen and up into the cabinet’s upper top box.”
I’ll try to keep the blog up to date with the deluge of announcements for new slot machines and other games that will debut at G2E. I’ll be sharing info on new games on twitter and Facebook first if you have a need to know about these things as soon as they’re announced.
