Adam West Makes Special Appearance to Launch Aristocrat's Batman(TM) Classic TV Series Slot Game Powered by Wonder Wheels(TM) With a POW! at Pechanga Resort & Casino

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 06/26/14 -- Aristocrat's newest slot game, Batman™ Classic TV Series Slot Game Powered by Wonder Wheels™, arrived with a POW! a ZAP! and a BAM! when it made its world premiere at Pechanga Resort & Casino yesterday.

Iconic TV star Adam West was on hand for the celebration, greeting a throng of cheering fans and signing autographs.

"I'm so proud to have been a part of a beloved TV series that continues to bring joy to generations of fans. Featuring clips and iconic catch phrases from the original series, and with new voiceovers from me, it's great to see the fans continue to get excited for Batman with this new slot game," said Adam West.

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.

"People around the world recognize Batman. We were excited to have Adam West at Pechanga to premiere the slot game," said Pechanga Resort & Casino General Manager, Rudy Prieto. "There was 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 played host the world premiere of Batman™ Classic TV Series Slot Game Powered by Wonder Wheels, and that Adam West made 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.

Game play in Batman™ Classic TV Series Slot Game Powered by Wonder Wheels™ 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™.

Batman™ Classic TV Series Slot Game Powered by Wonder Wheels™ is coming soon to casinos across North America. Visit www.aristocrat-us.com or www.facebook.com/aristoslots to find the game near you.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric.

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
