JAWS premieres at Sycuan

EL CAJON, Calif. – Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the casino, Sycuan Casino and Aristocrat Technologies unleashed the video slot game everyone will be talking about, JAWS.

Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation Tribal Chairman Daniel J. Tucker led the ribbon cutting May 8, and the fun was on, with five of Sycuan’s best players jumping in to be the first to play.

A line quickly developed with players waiting to be among the first to play the gaming industry’s newest and most exciting game. Players didn’t have to wait long to be rewarded, as player after player entered into the fun bonus games and jackpot after jackpot was won.

JAWS – based on the Academy Award-winning film franchise – submerges the player in a total experience. The fun begins the minute players sit down. Then, a nervous flick of a finger on the “shark tooth” spin button, and the game begins.

From deep inside the slot, the familiar spine-tingling JAWS theme music sets the tone, but JAWS is more fun than dangerous. In fact, players can win one of four Hyperlink progressive jackpots and bonus games, which keep players in the “water” longer. Completing the experience, an electro-mechanical buoy topper lights up and sounds off a bell during game play, and shark “gills” cover the speakers.

JAWS was developed by Aristocrat Technologies. The game is driven by Aristocrat’s GEN7 platform, resulting in state-of-the-art video and sound quality. Encasing the game is the award-winning VIRIDIAN cabinet, complete with blue water bubble trim and edge lighting that illuminates during game play.
