Three new slots to look for

Most of the slot machines I write about come from a few large companies – International Game Technology, Aristocrat Technologies and Scientific Games (which now holds both Bally and WMS) command the most attention, with Incredible Technologies, Konami Gaming, Everi and international giant Novomatic claiming pieces of the pie.

In the midst of all that, American Gaming Systems has grown into a real player in the slot market. AGS initially served the Native American casino market with a heavy focus on Class II slot machines. Today, it has RNG slots (designated “Class III” in tribal gaming), table games and Class II games, and serves both commercial and tribal casinos.

As with all slot manufacturers, a constant flow of new ideas and game themes is essential. Here are three new games you can expect from AGS in the coming year.

Rakin’ Bacon Xtreme Jackpots: A cherubic pig in a gold coin-filled room is a central figure in this five-reel game with a multi-level progressive that’s packed full of player-favorite features, including free spins, multipliers and scatter pays.

As the wins add up, the golden pig gets fatter and fatter, until the player wins the Free Game Bonus and the golden pig explodes to reveal a pick screen. That screen gives you the chance to choose three different reel layouts for up to 3125 ways to win.

Additional free spins can be won during the Free Game Bonus, making this game even more potentially lucrative. During the randomly awarded Jackpot Pick feature, you touch and select icons until you match three of a kind, which awards a guaranteed jackpot pay.
