In a first that changes the gaming industry forever, Aristocrat Gaming™ will release specialty Dune slot games in casinos timed to the US theatrical release of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ highly anticipated Dune film. This new game development is timed to a major film’s theatrical release, representing a landmark in entertainment and further demonstrating Aristocrat’s leadership and commitment to innovation. Furthermore, a release of this kind deepens the ties between the gaming and filmed entertainment industries.
“We are thrilled to have the privilege of releasing the Dune slot game alongside the feature film for the first time in company history,” said Jon Hanlin, Aristocrat Gaming’s Senior Vice President of Commercial Strategy and Business Analytics. “Once players leave the movie theatre, they can continue the story and fun on casino floors nationwide.”
An adaptation of Frank Herbert’s seminal bestselling book from Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Blade Runner 2049), Dune is scheduled to open around the world beginning September 15, and in the US on October 22 in theatres and on HBO Max. Dune the slot game will feature a generous number of sights and sounds from the film with themed gameplay unique to the game.
Dune the slot game appears, appropriately, on Aristocrat’s new and technologically advanced Neptune Double™ cabinet. Neptune Double provides players with an out-of-this-world theatrical style experience with curved 49-inch monitors and 4K visuals, state-of-the-art sound, and a custom-designed, adjustable sound chair. Dune the slot game has a $500,000multi-site progressive jackpot.
Unique to Dune the slot game are new mechanics such as multiplier stacks, which add increased volatility and excitement to the base game, and frequent scatter triggered features that use proven game mechanics in new ways.
