I-Slots: A Unique Offering From Rival Gaming

August 12, 2009

I-Slots are a new genre of online slots that are offered only by Rival Gaming. The “I” stands for interactive. I-Slots are different from other online slots in two ways. The first difference is that they tell a story while the players wager. The second difference is that they include elements of skill, which make them interactive and give players some control on how the story unfolds.

I-Slots begin with a video clip that sets the scene for the story. It introduces the characters that will play a pivotal role in the story and the elements of the story in the form of a game map and gives an idea to the players what to expect. As the players move into successive rounds further video clips describe how the story has proceeded and what turns it may take in the future. In other words the story has multiple endings and a different ending may take place every time a player plays the game. It is the players’ performances at the different levels that determine which of the possible events actually occur. Because I-slots tell a story they have more exciting themes.

These are the additional features that are incorporated in I-slots. The regular features prevalent in contemporary slot games are also present. Hence I-Slots have wild symbols, scatter symbols, multipliers, win animations, background music, free spins and bonus rounds.

The above characteristics of I-Slots are elucidated with respect to some of the more popular games. Reel Crime: Art Heist takes players back to the days when theft of masterpieces from museums was rampant. In the I-Slot players have to help Remy and Raoul Mouchard steal one of four masterpieces from the museum. In the first bonus round players have to select the painting that will be stolen. In the second bonus round they have to select the tools that will be used in the heist. Subsequently they have to make a getaway, find an unscrupulous art collector who will buy the stolen painting and avoid being caught in the process. The story of this I-slot can end in one of two ways. Either the art thieves are successful and are having a ball in Jamaica or are in the Bastille prison.

A common feature of I-Slots is that Rival Gaming introduces sequels to the popular games. There are three episodes in As The Reels Turn and two episodes of Cosmic Quest. There is a second episode of Reel Crime as well, which is called Bank Heist. This has a very interesting feature. If after the heist the player gets three or more getaway car symbols he moves closer to the escape. In order to escape the player has to ditch his getaway car in a used car lot and choose the one that will help him to escape. However, if he gets three or more cop cars then he moves being closer to being caught. If he is caught he has to start all over again.

The I-Slots are available only in online casinos powered by Rival Gaming. The popular Rival Gaming online casinos are Sloto’ Cash Casino, Superior Casino, Cocoa Casino and Da Vinci’s Gold Casino. Recently two music based I-Slots have been released at these online casinos. These are Rock On and Psychedelic Sixties and are doing very well.
