Caesars Entertainment to introduce IGT's The Hangover slot machine

13 May 2011

LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Caesars Entertainment Corporation today announced it will introduce The Hangover Slots to the casino floor of 37 Caesars' properties this summer.

Caesars aligned with International Game Technology (NYSE: IGT) to introduce The Hangover™ Slots. Based on the No. 1 R-rated comedy of all time by Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, these slot machines are sure to be one of the wildest rides on the gaming floor.

Caesars Entertainment will be the first casino operator in the United States to feature The Hangover™ Slots at select properties nationwide, offering patrons the exclusive opportunity to play this exciting new game first, beginning in June.
Inspired by the record-breaking hit comedy, IGT developed The Hangover™ Slots through a license agreement with Warner Bros. Consumer. The game features four character-themed progressive bonuses, four unique and entertaining bonuses themed toward events from the movie, and a base game wild feature. Adding to the gaming experience, Mr. Chow, voiced by Ken Jeong, pops in with his memorable and comedic sayings throughout the game play.

"Caesars Palace was one of the stars of the original movie, so we were sure it would excite our guests to have their first chance to play this entertaining new slot machine at our casinos," said Katrina Lane, Caesars Entertainment chief technology officer.
"The Hangover™ Slots brings a new level of comedy to the gaming market with its wild antics and huge entertainment value," said Eric Tom, IGT chief operating officer. "The game has all the characters, sayings and memorable moments from the movie that helped to make it such a hit on screen. It's the complete package, and we are excited to launch the game with Caesars Entertainment."

In The Hangover Slots game, the characters Alan, Phil, Stu and Doug star in four themed progressive pick bonuses. The first of the four 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.

Starting May 18, Total Rewards players can enter a special Hangover sweepstakes, along with other prizes. All Total Rewards members are eligible, and each participating casino will send a lucky winner on a trip for two to Las Vegas. The final grand prize winner will return home with a satchel filled with $80,000--similar to the satchel discovered in the movie.
