VERNON HILLS, IL -- "Get ready to strike it richer," Incredible Technologies is advising amusement machine operators as it puts the final touches on its Roll-N-Win feature for Silver Strike videogames. The automatic software patch will install free in January on all registered Silver Strike LIVE games, and it will be instantly available where prize play and Roll-N-Win is allowed.

IT said Roll-N-Win puts a new spin on the popular "Red Pin Bonus" event, which is used for bragging rights only. With Roll-N-Win, the action takes place during the final frame of the bowling simulation game in which players are awarded cash prizes for rolling strikes.

On the 10th frame of online (Stats or Prize) games, players are prompted to enter an additional entry fee to participate in Roll-N-Win. If a player bowls two strikes in a row, he or she wins a cash prize. If they bowl three strikes in a row an even bigger cash prize is awarded. Winnings are paid instantly to the winner's player account, which IT is hoping will encourage repeat play.

At launch, default pricing will be set to a 50¢ entry fee, with a $1 prize for two strikes and a $3 prize for three strikes. Roll-N-Win automatically defaults to "on" in most states, but operators can disable the feature on the game and/or their ITNet service accounts, if desired.

"Introducing a skill opportunity to win cash by simply bowling strikes will appeal to all types of players," said IT executive vice-president Richard Ditton. "Roll-N-Win will entice the massive casual player base to sample all of the online features Silver Strike LIVE has to offer, and convert them to devoted, longtime players."

IT president and chief executive Elaine Hodgson added, "We are committed to supporting the LIVE platform and protecting long-term operator investments. The development of this feature is free to all online games and hopefully has a positive impact on long-term earnings."
