******************* More ways to win millions at Kewadin Casinos
Sault Ste. Marie, MI - The highly anticipated eMillions™ slot machines will make their way into Kewadin Casinos this month.
Kewadin will be the first casino in the Midwest to feature the revolutionary eMillions™ machines. "This roll out is very exciting for us," Slot Director Dave Kucharczyk said. "We signed a contract for the 13 eMillions™ machines while at the industry's largest trade show, the Global Gaming Expo, in Las Vegas last month. They are some of the hottest machines out there and they feature many new advances which are a benefit for our customers." eMillions™, manufactured by Atronic, is a thrilling new nickel Wide Area Progressive (WAP) that gives every player the chance to become a millionaire.
Playing max bet qualifies players to win the $1,000,000+ jackpot and playing less than max bet still offers the opportunity to win the 1,000,000- credit jackpot.
The unique Jackpot Re-spin™ feature rewards players that bet more. Wide Area Progressive machines often have larger jackpots for players to win.
These machines are linked throughout a network area including other casinos across the country.
Each time a coin is played in a linked machine, anywhere in the network, the cumulative jackpot grows and continues to build until it is won.
The addition of the eMillions™ machines will bring the total slot machines Kewadin offers to nearly 2,000 at all five casino locations.
Machines that will be featured in the eMillions™ circuit include African Riches™, Gold Seekers™ and Fantasy Forest™.
eMillions™ is a subset of the e-motion™ game group which has been leading the market for the "new age of video" – ergonomic and technically advanced slots designed to attract play, build player loyalty and generate significant revenue.
Unique and eye-catching frame lights, dual TFT screens, and ergonomic cabinet design, including the patent-protected height adjustable playfield, first in the industry, captivate players and operators alike.
The supporting Hi(!)bility™ platform enhances e-motion's exciting design with more interactive games, sophisticated new gaming concepts, and compatibility with future technology.
