Online and land-based casino slot developer Aristocrat announced the official release of its new The Walking Dead slot this week.
Based on the hit AMC television series of the same name, The Walking Dead is a 5 reel slot where players will need to bet 75 credits in order to have the ability to trigger all of the bonus features.
Most notably, the slot gives players the chance to win a progressive jackpot that starts at $500,000 and increases the longer it remains untriggered. The slot will be available to play at casinos up and down the US including at a number of top casinos in Atlantic City and Las Vegas.
AMC’s Vice President of Promotions and Activation Theresa Beyer said “The Walking Dead Slot Game is the perfect marriage between TV’s leading drama and the gaming industry’s leading developer.”
Beyer added “The show keeps viewers on the edge of their seats, and Aristocrat now delivers that same experience for gaming fans.”
Slots fans were initially given a preview of the slot at the 2013 Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas with some players stating it was the most hotly anticipated slot release in recent memory.
Aristocrat’s Vice President of Gaming Operations Dallas Orchard stated “Capitalizing on the show’s dedicated following, we stayed true to the ethos of the AMC series while creating this game. We have designed a game that will appeal to the show’s audience and players will be excited to find all of their favorite characters here. Working with AMC has been phenomenal, and we look forward to continuing our relationship.”
