LONDON, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology (NYSE: IGT), a global leader in casino gaming entertainment and systems technology, today announced the release of the groundbreaking STAR TREK™ Against All Odds online slot game.
For the first time, online slot players can enjoy a skill-based, arcade-style shoot-em-up bonus as they destroy as many incoming Romulan missiles as possible in 45 seconds in the Enterprise Defender Bonus. The player's skill determines if they achieve the rank of Captain, Commander or Lieutenant, and their rank determines a possible top award of up to 22,500X. However, all players can prosper in this bonus since all skill levels have the same expected payback.
STAR TREKTM Against All Odds, licensed by CBS Consumer Products, is an epic visual presentation with immersive audio and sound effects, including some of the most memorable scenes from the 2009 movie. Set to build on the success of IGT's first STAR TREKTM online slot, which remains a strong top-10 performer, the game has a total of 720 ways to win for only 60 coins, bi-directional pays and frequent Energizing Wilds that turn multiple symbols wild, as well as unique nine-wheel bonuses loaded with hefty prizes and exciting features.
"IGT continues to merge the best of traditional video games and slot games in the online space," said Leigh Nissim, IGT Commercial Director of Interactive, EMEA. "STAR TREKTM fans will absolutely love the new Against All Odds title; its frequent payouts, engaging game play and revolutionary skill-based bonus feature gives this game universal appeal. We think this game will prove to be a huge hit."
