These days some slot machine developers spend put as much effort into promoting a new slot game that you’d think they were major motion pictures. The new slot game Grease is getting the premiere treatment, at least out on youtube.com where the there’s even a six minute mini-movie introducing the game and pitting two players against each other in a slot bonus contest.
The Grease slot machine isn’t available online. (There is a mobile slot of the same name but it’s a basic three reel game and not the game causing so much commotion at the casinos.) At this point it’s only available a limited number of live casinos, and those casinos who do get the slot game seem to be launching the game with lots of promotional activity and even song and dance skits that focus on the Grease theme.
The slot game is themed after the original Grease movie and features music and scenes from the movie. On the casino floor, the game should be easy to spot since it is sometimes set in a classic car with seats for players arranged in the car’s “body.” In addition to great graphics and a popular theme, the game feature bonus games triggered by discovering the Grease yearbook. The dance off bonus looks to be a popular bonus with players. The game also features a progressive jackpot, which will also be popular with players.
If you want to play the new Grease slot game, you’ll need to visit one of the land based casinos that currently features it. Right now these are limited, possibly because installing the slot game at its full potential means casinos would want to make room for the classic car display play area. If it proves to be as popular as the developer seems to think it will be, we’ll probably see it coming to more casinos as they cycle out older games and themes for newer ones. But I’ve seen no news on when it will be coming to an online casino. So, if you want to play, it’s time to plan a casino visit.
