London, 26 February, 2009. Probability plc, the award winning mobile gambling specialists, have today launched a feature-rich new slots game based on Grease, the classic movie.
The Grease brand has been exclusively licensed to Probability for mobile gambling by Paramount and the game takes scenes, characters and songs from the movie as its inspiration.
Grease is a three reel slot with seventeen paylines and a bonus mini-game. Players can bet from 10p to £1 on each payline, making the minimum bet just 10p right up to a maximum stake per spin of £17. For extra flexibility, the game also features an auto-spin feature.
The top prize on a single payline is up to £100, and up to £255 with the bonus game is a player bets the maximum £1 per line on all paylines. By combining wins on the different paylines, players can win literally hundreds of pounds on a single spin. The average return to player is approximately 95% - amongst the highest available on any slot machine for mobile.
The Grease slots features a bonus round based upon the “Shake Shack” from the movie. Players are presented with nine T-Bird cards and have to pick three. The cards turn to reveal Danny, Sandy or Heart symbols which pay out handsomely depending upon their combinations.
Probability have already launched the new game on their award-winning mobile gambling service, LadyLuck’s (www.ladylucks.co.uk) and are making it available to their white label partners.
Commenting on the launch of the new game, Probability CEO Charles Cohen, said: “Grease is a great new game for our mobile customers. It is also the first to use a completely new slots engine which we have been developing for the past six months. This new engine means we can very quickly design and deploy slots games with features that will stand up well with the best on-line slots. This sort of feature rich, high quality experience is what players demand – and we are happy to be able to give it to them now.”
