A rock and roll experience like none other is set to take over the gaming industry's largest trade show with the debut of the new KISS slot game from WMS Gaming Inc., a subsidiary of WMS Industries Inc., at the twelfth annual Global Gaming Expo (G2E), October 2-4 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas. In conjunction with the introduction of the new game, legendary original KISS band members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons will be on hand to meet and greet fans in support of this rockin' new game at the WMS booth (#1118) on Tuesday, October 2 from 10:00 a.m. until noon PT.
Featuring the music made famous by one of the world's most recognized and successful rock bands, the new KISS slot game offers players unique features for multi-array games, as players can be awarded one, two or three bonus video reel sets on any spin, each enhanced with WILD symbols added to the reels or the low-credit symbols removed. Additionally, when three or more bonus symbols appear on the reels, players will be awarded a Backstage Pass. Players then can choose from one of three passes that may award the Rock n' Records free spin bonus, Band Prize Top Box Bonus or the KISS Alive! Bonus with its exciting new interpretation on picking bonuses set to a soundtrack that's "Hotter than Hell" on WMS' Sensory Immersion platform with the near-concert-like surround sound. The KISS slots are sure to transform casino slot floors into party mode 'round-the-clock with "Rock And Roll All Nite And Party Every Day."
With game elements that feature the band member personas of the "Starchild," "Demon," "Spaceman" and "Catman," players will keep coming back for exciting bonus rounds and music from the band that's been awarded 28 gold albums, the most of any American rock band.
Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, co-founders of KISS, noted, "We've spent 40 years bringing our spectacle music and the KISS experience to life on stages around the world. We're blown away by this new cutting edge slot game. WMS has done an incredible job of capturing the energy of KISS and bringing our classic rock to life on the casino floor."

GIRLS SOFTBALL TEAM GETS ED!
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
This is a Special time for the Eureka Middle School Softball Team and we want YOU to be a part of it...here's how! Our Head Coach is a HUGE KISS Fan and we thought it would be a Great Idea to include YOU in our Thank You gift to him. We dressed the team up in their uniforms and KISS Style MAKE UP and took A Team Picture to give to Coach. We even had smoke in the background, wouldn't be a KISS pic without some pyro...involved! We thought he would LOVE this idea.
This team just won our Regional Championship tonight and are on to Sectionals Sat. We have won more games this season and broke all his previous "records" so we thought what an Awesome way to say THANKS!

Most of us associate putt-putt courses with flat greens and dilapidated windmills, but there’s another breed of mini-golf that puts this antiquated image to shame. Whether you’re shooting for a hole-in-one alongside a fiery volcano, making par in the giant shadow of Paul Bunyan or chasing your ball down Gene Simmons’ outstretched pink tongue, these mini-golf courses are anything but ordinary.
KISS by Monster Mini Golf – Las Vegas
Most bands can’t claim a mini-golf course among the businesses featuring their names and likenesses, but Kiss isn’t most bands. The elaborately costumed rock band comes to life as you play your way through the 18 holes appropriately located across from Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Hotel. Obstacles feature statues of black-lit guitars, drum sets, platform boots and, of course, Gene Simmons’ giant tongue.
