Did you know that Elvis was born in January? That’s right, Elvis Aaron Presley was born January 8, 1935, in Tupelo, Mississippi. To celebrate what would have been the King’s 85th birthday, AE Player is going to do our monthly Game Guide on Scientific Gaming’s smash-hit slot game Elvis Platinum.
Elvis Platinum is a relatively new addition to the Scientific Gaming Illinois slot machine lineup. The reels are five symbols across and three symbols high. There are 25 possible paylines in the game, plus Elvis Platinum incorporates Scientific Gaming’s Max Bet Edge feature. This means that all wins that equal or exceed $200 are boosted to the maximum possible win for that bet! Symbols in the game include various portraits of Elvis (each two tiles high), his iconic sunglasses, a retro microphone, and stylized symbols for Ace (A), King (K), and Queen (Q). The TCB band symbol represents a wild tile and can replace any regular tile.
Before each reel spin initiates, columns of full picture pays may be chosen to randomly appear on the reels. These picture pays are similar to scatter pays and landing three or more of the columns next to each other will result in a win of 50, 100, or 250. The picture pays include Elvis in front of a red background, Elvis in front of a purple background, Elvis in front of a blue background, and a rainbow of Elvis silhouettes.
If a player spins and the blue background picture pay fills the entire screen, the award may be randomly increased anywhere from 500 to 3,000 credits. If a player spins and the purple background fills the entire screen, the award may be randomly increased anywhere from 750 to 4,000 credits. And if a player spins and the red background fills the entire screen, the award may be randomly increased anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 credits.
New to the game is the very rare “Side B Bonus.” If a player scores above a certain amount on a picture pay, they are eligible to receive a random B-Side Prime Spin. The B-Side Prime Spin is overwhelmingly likely to result in a second picture pay win for the player, which can lead to some seriously hefty prizes!
The real joy of Elvis Platinum comes from the classic Hollywood glamour and rock ‘n’ roll feel of the game. Players will be able to pick up on iconic Elvis tunes in the background of the game, including “Hound Dog,” “Teddy Bear” and “Blue Suede Shoes.”
