In 2008 WMS Gaming rolled out their first Star Trek slot machines, which are currently in casinos across North America. Now they have a brand new slot machine called "Star Trek: Battlestations" which allows players to work together. Check out some exclusive shots and a new video showing off the game.
Star Trek: Battlestations slots- coming to casinos soon
WMS Gaming’s new original Star Trek series-themed video slot machine is called "Star Trek: Battlestations", which comes in a bank of four connected slots and a bank of monitors that allow players to have what WMS calls a "community gaming experience". If more than one player is playing at the bank of four machines (pictured below), any time the community bonus triggers, eligible players will enter the bonus game to play together, each with their own ‘fleet’ of up to five ships.
Here is the official description from WMS:
STAR TREK™ BATTLESTATIONS
Imagine a guaranteed Big Event® within 8 minutes after each bonus.
From the design team behind the player favorite STAR TREK™ slots comes a whole new take on Community Gaming® — STAR TREK BATTLESTATIONS! You’ve never seen Big Event® gaming like this!
Find Enterprise symbols during base game play to progress the construction of Federation ships that, when finished, increase the power of your fleet for greater potential wins in the bonus rounds. With no more than 8 minutes between communal bonus rounds guaranteed, the Big Event comes in two exciting variations: you’ll enter either the Rogue Ship bonus, where credits awarded are multiplied by your entire fleet, or the Battle Bonus, where even minimum bet players get could take their shot at hundreds of dollars!
Complimenting the exciting communal slot experience are unique 80-line, dual reel set base games that offer both a Transporting WILD feature and a Free Spin bonus with 3 or 4 WILD Reels. BATTLESTATIONS is the exciting adventure fans have been waiting for – our biggest STAR TREK adventure yet!
And here is the new video promo showing off the new Star Trek: Battlestations slot machine.
The first Star Trek slot machine from WMS (released in 2008) is available at 81 casinos across the USA and Canada. The new "Battlestations’ machines are just being announced and should begin showing up at casinos this summer. WMS tells TrekMovie they expect that Star Trek: Battlestations slot machines will be available at the Rio Hotel in Casino in time for the Star Trek convention being held there in August. You can keep track of where the new slot machines show up at the WMS Facebook page.
