TULSA, Okla. – VGT is preparing to launch its thrilling Professional Bull Riders (PBR) themed gaming machines, the first major licensed brand in the VGT portfolio. The exciting PBR family of games will premiere June 13 at more than 20 properties throughout Oklahoma.
These fun and exhilarating games bring the PBR to life on the casino floor and will launch with the titles Blazing Bulls™, VS™, Fearless™, and Ryan Dirteater™. Each of the 3-reel mechanical wide area progressive games have a jackpot that resets at $20,000 and gives players the chance to ride the adventure towards 8 Red Spins, designed to mimic the excitement of an 8-second bull ride.
VGT is planning a series of fun promotions in support of the launch. Events include:
• Special appearances by professional bull riders Ryan Dirteater and Chase Outlaw at select properties June 13 and 14 where the pros will sign autographs and pose for photos with fans.
• An appearance by a PBR bull rider at the June 15 and July 4 OKC Dodgers games, where the pros will show off their baseball skills by throwing the first pitch! Afterwards, they will host an autograph signing for fans.
• Ryan Dirteater and PBR Announcer Matt West will make a special appearance in VGT’s booth at the Oklahoma Indian Gaming Show in Oklahoma City on July 24.
• VGT will showcase the PBR games on the concourse during the PBR Express Employment Professionals Classic Presented by Osage Casino tournament, held in Tulsa’s BOK Center on August 11-12.
“We are thrilled to present VGT’s PBR-themed gaming machines, which appeal directly to our customers’ players, and the series of promotions we have created clearly underscore our commitment to these games,” said VGT President Jay Sevigny. “The VGT and Aristocrat teams have worked incredibly hard to ensure we captured the thrill and fun of the PBR, and the end result is another example of the combined strengths of the VGT and Aristocrat development teams.”
The PBR, celebrating its 25th anniversary this season, is one of the world’s fastest growing sports. The “original extreme sport” now competes in five countries (the U.S., Australia, Brazil, Canada, and Mexico) and through international broadcast agreements is available in 130 territories.
