Twilight Zone Slots

International Game Technology (IGT) has been increasing its presence in the brick and mortar casinos with exciting progressive slot games. One of the newest games in its line-up is the Twilight Zone 3D slot, which is progressive slots game inspired by the hit franchise, The Twilight Zone, by Rod Serling. The game includes both MegaJackpots and Multi-Play baits from IGT. The game has the thrill and suspense inherent to the franchise, and always keeps you guessing if you are hitting a bonus and how much are you winning. The game has the traditional elements of a slot game with a scattering of new features.

Twilight Zone Slot Machine Theme

The game comes in a beautiful machine that has the Twilight Zone logo toward the top, as well as a twirling orb-like thing in the bonus wheel cabinet. And Rod Serling is also present as the game’s host.

The 3D in the name is taken literally – there's the option to choose among three dimensions to play in. Rod himself appears as a symbol, apart from a lady, clock, floating window, space ship, green dinosaur, bonus zone orb, eye, and several other deformed monsters. A neat feature in this game is the sci-fi stuff performed by some creatures when they land on the reels. For instance, the hands of the clock run faster until it explodes, the eye starts blinking and moving around, and on landing the floating window, the latter keeps on opening to other windows inside it.

The familiar music from the franchise plays in the background along with a usual catchphrase from Rod, such as “journey to other side of imagination” and “another space and time dimension”. The overall look of the game gives you the feeling of actually being in the twilight zone, and you can easily play with characters and win bonuses.

Features of the Twilight Zone Slot

The Twilight Zone is a slots game with 15 paylines spread across 5 reels. The game has all the betting options and supports multi-way bets also. The maximum wager that a player can put on the game is 125 credits. With the minimum bet being a penny, players can bet up to $1.25 on every bet.

When playing in the multi-play mode, you cannot bet on the paylines. The waging options are increased by up to ten times as there are a total 243 ways to win in the multi-play betting option. IGT has seen big success with its multi-play slots. Slot players are bound to get bored with slot games with less paylines, and IGT has thought ahead and included multi-play machines which allow players to bet on more lines. This makes it possible to enjoy this game as you would enjoy a 25, 50, or even 100 paylines slot game. Unlike standard video slot games, the Twilight Zone includes bonus rounds also.

Bonus Features

There are two major bonus rounds in the Twilight Zone. The first bonus is the Future Photo Bonus round. This round gets activated on landing three camera symbols on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd reels of any played line. This bonus is inspired by the TV episode where a camera takes future pictures. You can bring the predictions to life by touching on the screen on any camera logo to win 25-500 credits, which are multiplied by the line bet.

The other bonus is called the Bonus Zone. This round starts after landing the Bonus Zone orb symbol at the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd reels of the line played. Players have to choose any one symbol to get free spins in the bonus wheel. The Bonus Zone can also give you the chance to play more bonus games. You can get into the Free Spin Zone where players get extra spins on the wheel, or there's a Dimension Bonus in which you get to choose one among six windows that come up on your screen to win more credits.

The MegaJackpots Instant Winners is triggered on hitting five of the Twilight Zone symbols at the 25th line with the highest credit bet. This is a progressive jackpot and can see you win huge amounts. The scatter symbol in this game is the eye symbol. On getting 3, 4, or 5 of this symbol on any of the payline, players can see 600 credits paid to them, multiplied with the initial bet.

The Twilight Zone Franchise

The Twilight Zone franchise began from the original TV series aired in the United States from 1956-64 on CBS. The show stands as a role model for television anthologies. The sci-fi parables in this show explore the hopes, prejudices, prides, and despairs of humanity in metaphorical terms that conventional series can't do.

The show was made of unrelated plots that have themes with drama, fantasy, thriller, suspense, and even horror elements in them. The plots had unique and unexpected twists toward the end. This show was created by Rod Serling, who scripted and narrated the shows. The original series lasted for 5 seasons and aired 156 episodes in all.

The huge popularity and success of this series has inspired a number of shows, movies, radio series, magazines, comic book strips, and several spin-offs spread over the last five decades. There have even been two revival TV series: one on CBS from 1985 to 1989 which had 65 episodes, and the other from UPN running between 2002 and 2003 with 44 episodes. The franchise has constantly figured in the best series lists throughout the years. It has been ranked as the 4th best drama of all times by TV Guide. It has also received many other awards and recognitions.

The series has been adapted into a full length featured film by Steven Spielberg. The 1983 movie, called Twilight Zone: The Movie, starred Dan Aykroyd, John Lithgow, Albert Brooks, Scatman Crothers, and Vic Morrow in major roles. The film was based on three episodes from the original series and one new story. Apart from these, the series has also figured in comic books and a dedicated magazine, and still has reruns on the TV.
