RIVERS CASINO DEBUTS ‘WORLD OF WONKA’ IN WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA
Oompa Loompas have arrived at Pittsburgh’s casino
PITTSBURGH — June 28, 2017 — The lovable world the late Gene Wilder brought to life in “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” can now be experienced at Rivers Casino, with today’s western Pennsylvania debut of Scientific Games’ new World of Wonka video slot machines.
The new World of Wonka game takes players on an adventure through the wonderfully whimsical world of Willy Wonka. Along the way, players experience every type of sweet treat imaginable, including chocolate waterfalls, edible flowers and, of course, Oompa Loompas. A wide variety of bonuses are offered, including Wonka Winko, Free Spins and the Chocolate River Bonus — and it would not be the World of Wonka without a Golden Ticket Bonus. The highly entertaining game is brought to life on vivid video screens that create an immersive experience for casino guests.
“We are thrilled to be the first in western Pennsylvania to offer guests the chance to play the World of Wonka game,” said Craig Clark, general manager of Rivers Casino. “As a premier location for exciting new games, Rivers Casino reaffirms its commitment to providing guests with fresh experiences — both on and off the gaming floor.”
World of Wonka, by Scientific Games, is built on the new Gamescape cabinet, which features three vivid, high-definition displays angled toward the player, a 40-inch top screen and an ergonomic 10.4-inch tablet touch panel control, so players experience the feeling of being wrapped inside the magical world of Wonka. The Gamescape platform also incorporates new motion sensor technology, allowing seamless interaction between the player’s hand and the game.
Rivers Casino offers a wide variety of entertainment options, including the “Live on the River” free summer concert series and the comedy stand-up program “A Funny Thing Happened at Rivers Casino,” hosted by local comedian T-Robe. The casino features more than 2,900 slot machines, 92 table games and a 30-table poker room. Rivers is also hosting a special ticketed concert with Donnie Iris and The Cruisers on Saturday, July 29, at 8 p.m.
