Star Trek the movie – in an online casino near you!
At times ridiculed for their nerdiness, bizarre gatherings, and even translating Shakespeare into Klingonese, loyal Star Trek fans have always believed they would have the last laugh. And it looks like they were right! IGT, a leading producer of dynamic online casino software, has announced the unveiling of what can only be described as the ultimate Trekkie fantasy: a Star Trek online slot based on JJ Abrams' blockbuster movie of 2009.A Peek Preview
In the style of Microgaming's Lord of the Rings slot, IGT's movie-themed slot allows players to savor actual clips from the 2009 movie release. The other main attractions of the slot are rumored to be highly authentic graphics that immerse you in the atmosphere of the bridge of the USS Enterprise, and even the chance to run the famous transporter room - perhaps you can "beam up" a jackpot!The Nitty Gritty Details
