Art world, meet the casino industry. Casino industry, meet the art world. You're going to get along famously! The relationship begins in grand style on March 22 when America's best-selling artist, Michael Godard, joins San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino and Aristocrat Technologies for the premiere of Rockin' Olives™, a new video slot game.
The Rockin' Olives game from Aristocrat is based on Godard's world-famous olives, and is making its official premiere at San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino on March 22. Godard himself will be on hand to introduce the game, speak with media, and pose for photographs.
In addition, the casino is hosting a contest on its facebook page @SanManuelCasino, where followers and Godard fans can submit their original artwork of their "best concert playing olive." Everyone who enters will have a chance to attend an exclusive facebook event with Godard on March 22. All attendees will get to meet Godard, take home Godard gifts, and the best entry (chosen by Godard himself) will receive a San Manuel Prize Pack worth over $100. The "Meet Michael Godard" facebook contest is underway now and continues through March 18.
Steve Lengel, Executive Director of Operations for the Casino, said, "We are absolutely thrilled to host the 'Rock Star of the Art World' Michael Godard for this-once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our facebook friends. San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino has a long history of bringing exciting events and entertainment to our guests. Having America's best-selling and most unique artist fits our traditions perfectly."
Rockin' Olives is a new video slot game from Aristocrat. Rockin' Olives tells the story of the ultimate rock concert, complete with guitar and drum-playing olives and sexy strawberry fans. Godard hand-painted each frame of each reel.
Rockin' Olives is housed in Aristocrat's award-winning VERVEhd™ cabinet. Sleek, modern and a work of art in itself, the cabinet completely changes the game forever with twin 21.5" HD monitors, panoramic digital audio, Nteractiv™ LCD buttons and revolutionary ergonomic design that is dramatically more comfortable for players. Rockin' Olives is certified for all GLI jurisdictions.
