California casinos introduce 'Hangover' slot

2 September 2011

RANCHO MIRAGE, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- The wild and crazy antics from the movie “The Hangover”™ can now be experienced by slot fans, with the addition of The Hangover™ slots at Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa in Rancho Mirage and Spa Resort Casino in Palm Springs.

“When I saw this machine, I knew I had to have it,” said Slot Director Michael Carruthers who oversees slot product for both Agua and Spa. “The movie clips, the bonuses… it’s your own personal party, although the chances of you losing a tooth or being tasered are far lower,” he joked.

In the MultiPLAY The Hangover(TM) Slots game, the characters Alan, Phil, Stu and Doug make up the four themed progressive pick bonuses. The first of the four unique bonuses include the Stun Gun bonus in which players press the button to zap Alan and build credit values. In the Wedding Chapel bonus, players pick from several boxes to reveal wedded bliss, mugs, and hats for credit values. During Mr. Chow's Freaky Free Games, players are awarded free spins with locking wild poker chips and can advance to the Deal in the Desert bonus with a chance to reveal the correct Doug for additional winnings. Additionally, in the Villa Bonus, players pick from several icons found in the hotel room to reveal credits. Base game wilds are awarded when a police cruiser, an SUV, a tiger paw swipe, a mattress, or Mr. Chow enters the screen and randomly converts game symbols to wilds.

Chief Operating Officer Brian Hansberry and Director of Player Development Kato Moy say they share their players’ excitement in being among the first casinos to install the popular Hangover slot.

“Look, everybody loves a good time,” said Hansberry. “Even if you didn’t see the movie, there’s no doubt you will love this slot machine. And if you’re one of the more than 1,000 people who get wild every weekend at our Caliente pool parties, you might even have a hangover while you play The Hangover™.”

“We’re thrilled to have the best slot floors in Southern California. The Hangover™ only raises the bar; after all who doesn’t love Mr. Chow?!” chimed Moy.

The Hangover™ slots were created through a license agreement between slot giant International Game Technology (IGT) and Warner Bros consumer Products (WBCP). Adding to the gaming experience, Mr. Chow pops in with his memorable sayings throughout the game play. Voiced by Jeong, Mr. Chow brings the game to life with his comical appearances during the game.

"I truly enjoyed being a part of this unique project--to bring The Hangover to life in a slot game--and fans of the movie are going to be thrilled," said Jeong. "Working on the voiceover and being part of this experience with IGT has been fantastic.”
