Thursday August 29,2013 : NEW ADDITION TO ‘SLOTS CRAZE' RANGE
 
Bwin.Party's software studio launches Garfield-themed game
 
Bwin.Party Digital's software arm, Win, has added a new slot to its popular Slots Craze  range, adding a Garfield and Friends themed game to other social gaming faves like Casper the Friendly Ghost, Sherlock Holms and Count Dracula on Facebook.
 
Slots Craze has recorded over a million downloads on the social gaming giant – clear evidence of its popularity with users. .
 
Based on the long-running Garfield comic strip, “Garfield and Friends” features the famously famished feline in the newest slot machine for Slots Craze, and the production has the approval of Garfield creator Jim Davis, who said this week:
 
“Anyone who’s ever woken up grumpy on Monday or eaten one pizza slice too many can relate to Garfield. And obviously the team at Win understands the cat – they’ve managed to capture all the fun and humour at the heart of the Garfield brand in Slots Craze. This engaging game brings Garfield to life in a new and interactive way.”
 
The title character behind the Guinness World Record holder as the most widely syndicated comic strip in history, Garfield has appeared in everything from feature films and television shows to video games and stage productions.
 
In the “Garfield and Friends” slot, a player’s goal is to line up images of Garfield; his owner, Jon Arbuckle; Jon’s dog, Odie; Jon’s love interest, Dr. Liz Wilson; and Garfield’s teddy bear, Pooky.
 
Special animations—such as a napping Garfield falling off a windowsill or a half-witted Odie chasing his own tail—will surprise and delight players, while the 35 pay lines and special bonus symbols offer extremely high pay outs.
 
Player engagement with Slots Craze has been exceptionally high, with more than half of new players coming back to play again on their second day.
 
Available for free on Facebook and iOS, Slots Craze offers 10 slot machines featuring characters ranging from famous icons to Win’s own personalities. Win plans to introduce many more slots over the coming months, a company spokesman revealed Thursday.
