Thursday January 17, 2013 : MEDICAL THEME FOR NEW DOUBLE DOWN CASINO SLOT
 
Famous television series medico featured in new IGT developed game
 
International Game Technology's online social gaming subsidiary Double Down Casino has launched a new Facebook slot themed on the famous and popular television series House MD.
 
The game was developed through a licence deal with Universal Partnerships and Licensing and NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products, and captures the irreverent nature of the show in an easy, free-to-play, DoubleDown Casino slot game.
 
Fans of the show are treated to Dr. Gregory House's witticisms as well as the cast of characters including Dr. Robert Chase, Drs. Cameron, Wilson, Foreman, as well as Thirteen.
 
"Many of us on the DoubleDown team were already fans of House; we used our experience to create a game that other fans were sure to enjoy," said Greg Enell, vice president of social gaming at IGT.
 
"Social gamers will also appreciate the classic slot action and double bonus rounds in this dynamic entertainment experience."
 
DoubleDown Casino players spin their way to a winning diagnosis, with:
 
* Free Spins: Players trigger free spins by getting three cane symbols with five spins available on Dr. House's reels. 
* Differential Diagnosis: Players pick their three favourite diagnoses from among thirteen show classics.
* Medical Mysteries: As part of House's team, players review patient files containing the team's most puzzling cases. Collecting two files at once triggers the bonus round.
