IGT's DoubleDown Casino Brings TRANSFORMERS Battle for Cybertron to Mobile and Desktop
Featuring more ways to win from a single spin with FreeFall Symbols


LAS VEGAS and SEATTLE, Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology, a global leader in gaming systems technology, and DoubleDown Casino, the world's largest social casino, bring "more than meets the eye" to social games this month with the launch of the TRANSFORMERS Battle for Cybertron game on desktop and mobile. Players can experience the legendary battle between the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS with Planet Cybertron's heroes and villains including OPTIMUS PRIME, MEGATRON, GRIMLOCK, SHOCKWAVE, RATCHET and BUMBLEBEE in the latest Hasbro release on DoubleDown Casino. The 40-line, five reel, high-energy slot is packed with innovative mystery and bonus features.

"We're committed to bringing exciting engagement to players, and are thrilled to offer this popular licensed game to DoubleDown Casino's mobile platform for the first time in the U.S.," said John Clelland, vice president of global Interactive marketing at IGT. "With the release of this unique social slot game, our players can enjoy instantly recognizable, exciting animations, and relive the fun of TRANSFORMERS from anywhere, at any time."

The game features IGT's classic FreeFallSymbols which allows multiple wins from a single spin as winning symbols disappear and are changed into new ones, cascading from above. After any spin, TRANSFORMERS robots may appear and explode away further symbols, unleashing even more wild and bonus-triggering symbols. In the Free Spins Bonus, players can select a TRANSFORMERS character to match their style of play: MEGATRON and OPTIMUS PRIME offer bigger multipliers, while SHOCKWAVE and BUMBLEBEE offer more free spins.

What's "social" about a slot machine? Ever see people playing slots at a casino? It's the #1 most ANTI-social game in the casino. (It's also the most brain-dead kind of game imaginable. A chicken can be trained to press a button repeatedly.)

Social game in the sense of social media, I'm guessing.

Challenging other people and the such.

I'm not sure, I don't play many games, and none of them on mobile devices. :-?

I'm trying to figure how can you challenge other people in a slot machine. "Hey, my random combination is better than yours! Try again!".

I Don't think it is suitable for the brand. Next will be Alcohol Prime and Methtron? Even if the movie and games aren't suitable for children we must not forget that transformers started as and still is a toy brand.

Also it looks like that hasbro is, sorry for the word, prostituting the brand...

The only point of slot machines is to win money, and this doesn't even have that.

Maybe they'll follow this up with a coin-flipping game. "Choose 'heads' (Optimus Prime) or 'tails' (Megatron). Flip the virtual coin and see which side comes up! Challenge your friends! 8-}

Disappointed that Hasbro licensed this, as has been stated previously it's simply prostituting the brand. >:oP

It's safe to assume that I'm just taking the piss.

Hasbro are so thoughtful & considerate! I know I personally wouldn't have thought of such a lovely way to introduce children to the wonderful & innocent world of gambling, where no dangerous life-long addictions are ever initialised! 8-}

Let's not forget that Hasbro has previously allowed the TF brand to adorn Beer Pong for Kids.

I'm hoping for some Arcee crotchless panties - sorry, I mean "EZ-GO children's underwear" - and a Megatron dildo - sorry, I mean "personal massager".
