NOVOMATIC teams up with Miramax for a blockbuster
NOVOMATIC has entered a licensing agreement with Miramax® for the rights to produce casino games based on the infamous crime and horror film ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’. As part of the multi-year agreement, NOVOMATIC is able to develop and distribute ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ branded games for both land-based and online casino platforms.
Directed by Robert Rodriguez and written by Quentin Tarantino, ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ celebrated its 20th anniversary last year, providing an ideal time to resurrect the film on casino floors worldwide. Rodriguez more recently developed ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ into an original series that has gained rave reviews and recently concluded its third season.
Staying true to the cult classic, the ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ slot game delivers an explosive adventure for slot enthusiasts and fans of the film alike. Starring George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino as the Gecko brothers, Salma Hayek as Santanico Pandemonium, as well as Harvey Keitel, Juliette Lewis and Danny Trejo in footage from the film, players are taken on a journey to Mexico from the comfort of a V.I.P. chair on the luxury NOVOSTAR® V.I.P. III and V.I.P. Lounge™ cabinets that control the action and provide gripping surround sound.
In addition to various features and mini bonuses happening during the base game, three bonus symbols trigger the ‘Bonus Twister’ wheel that players spin to win credits or enter a bonus. Sit back and watch the sensual dancer as she moves around the reels in the ‘Dancing Bonus’, acting as a ‘Dancing Wild’ symbol that can fill up to three reels and rack up big wins by doing so. In the ‘Mugshot Bonus’, reels spin to uncover Clooney and Tarantino mugshots that match various credits.
‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ will make its international debut at the upcoming G2E in Las Vegas!
