LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/14 -- Aristocrat's newest slot game, Batman™ Classic TV Series Slot Game Powered by Wonder Wheels™, will arrive with a POW! a ZAP! and a BAM! when it makes its world premiere at Pechanga Resort & Casino on Wednesday, June 25.

Iconic TV star Adam West will be on-hand for the celebration, greeting fans and signing autographs.

"The Batman Classic TV Series is packed full of eye-catching imagery, iconic phrases, and memorable characters, and we are happy to work with Aristocrat to bring fans a new way to experience this pop-culture classic," said Karen McTier, executive vice president, Domestic Licensing and Worldwide Marketing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products.

"People around the world recognize Batman and we are excited to have Adam West at Pechanga to launch the slot game for the first time anywhere," said Pechanga Resort & Casino General Manager, Rudy Prieto. "We are already hearing a lot of buzz from people anticipating the release of this slot machine and we think our guests will really like it."

"We are thrilled that Pechanga Resort & Casino will host the world premiere of Batman™ Classic TV Series Slot Game Powered by Wonder Wheels™, and that Adam West will make a personal appearance at the premiere. Aristocrat, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment, has developed this exciting landmark product, and we are confident players will react immediately and positively to the new game," said Aristocrat Vice President of Gaming Operations Dallas Orchard.

Batman™ Classic TV Series Slot Game Powered by Wonder Wheels™ puts a triple spin on fun on the casino floor. The exciting $250,000 multi-site progressive game features still and video imagery from the classic TV series with Adam West and three mechanical wheels that increase player engagement. Game play is enhanced by stacked wilds, six themed bonus features, video clips from the TV series, and a highly anticipatory wheel feature trigger.

Completely new to the industry is the independent wheel function of Wonder Wheels™, which allows the players on the bank to continue uninterrupted when another player hits a trigger and engages wheel-mode.

At 10.5 feet tall, the game towers above others on the casino floor. The action comes to life in Aristocrat's new Helix™ cabinet paired with a large portrait-style top-box screen for bonuses and is punctuated with Aristocrat's sensory-busting surround sound iChair™.
