Multiplayer Slots or Community Play
The Multiplayer slots concept at land-based casinos is a big hit and
provides added excitement in the slots playground.
Also known as Community play, these multiplayer slots can be spotted
easily as they take up more space on the casino floor than any other
slot games. Set up to accommodate at least 10 players with double
seating, each station is linked to the game. All players
can qualify for the top jackpot bonus round and gather credits
separately at their station. To qualify, players bet on all paylines
and place a side bet.
All the major slot manufacturers—IGT, WMS Gaming, Aristocrat and Bally
have jumped on the bandwagon to create fascinating versions with
several payout options.
There are 7 versions compiled for this lesson.
Multiplayer Slots: IGT
1) Wheel of Fortune Special Edition
These slots games provide nine two-seater playing stations, each of
which are linked to the wheel.
Each game station is either a 40-line, 400-coin penny version or a
10-line, 75-coin nickel version. In the bonus round, players select
from tiles at the bottom of the screen and as letters are displayed,
the game locates the letter in at least one of three puzzles.
Each time you find a letter, the bonus value tied to that puzzle
increases. Any player can start the wheel feature and gather bonus
amounts to their station pick.
To qualify, players bet on all paylines and place a 40-cent side bet.
Individual terminals who hit bonus events have an arrow light up at
their station around the big wheel. The big wheel spins once for all
qualifying players and it is possible for multiple players to initiate
the bonus and spin the wheel at the same time. When all nine stations
are in play, the wheel is in constant motion. Super fun for all players.

4) Grand Hotel Big Event:
brings the Multiplayer Slots concept to
the 3-Reel Mechanical player for the first time. Taking place atop the
Grand Hotel, the community bonus features credit awards plus unique
mini-bonuses triggered by up to 10 guests who may land on the
Railroads, Electric Company, Water Works, Community Chest, Chance, Go!
or Free Parking! You never know what bonus experience will come along.
On the third reel of each of the Grand Hotel Big Event games is a
symbol called the Multiplier Boost. This symbol in any position on the
third reel awards additional time on the player’s Big Event eligibility
meter, resulting in a temporary increase of their Big Event Multiplier.
The additional time awarded is proportional to the size of the player’s
bet, so larger bets result in larger increases in the multiplier.
5) Monopoly Big Event: Multiplayer
When the Big Event Bonus triggers, all qualifying players enter the
bonus round and win together. A Big Event Multiplier, determined by the
player's bet and speed of play, is also awarded in the bonus round. The
table-game-like camaraderie creates a hotspot on the slot floor.
Monopoly Big Event play is fast, bets are big, and the excitement never
stops. The Big Event Bonus is a randomly triggered bonus. When
triggered, the Big Event Bonus is announced on the screen of every
eligible player. Watch for which of the 6 Big Event Bonuses is awarded
with these multiplayer slots: Mr. Monopoly's Prize, Free Parking,
Chance, Community Chest, Railroad Riches or Once Around. The Once
Around Bonus is the largest and most rewarding of all the bonus rounds.
In this bonus, Mr. Monopoly keeps rolling the dice until all players
move once around the Monopoly Board, starting at GO. Credits are
awarded each time the player lands on a property. Additional bonus
rounds are triggered if a player lands on Electric Company, Water
Works, Chance, Community Chest, Free Parking or any of the Railroads.
The bonus ends after landing on or passing GO.
