We could already have predicted when we even first heard about the fact that Aristocrat were developing a Walking Dead slot machine that it would be one of the most popular games to be developed in recent times. You do not have to be a genius to understand that putting one of the most popular television shows of recent years together with high quality slot technology is something that will pull players away from sites like the Miami Club and get them interested in going to the land-based casinos again, if only to see what all the fuss is about.
Early reports are now in from the recent release of the games across the US, and as the television show kicks off with the premiere of its new season, it seems that slot players are very much interested in playing a game based around it. There are more than 250 units already available in casinos across the US from coast to coast, which means that it is quite easy to find example of the machine around to drive yourself. You can actually find out where you can play it at a new Aristocrat site which has been set up to let you know of other locations, called Aristocrat Playing Dead. “The Walking Dead Slot Game has been an instant, incredible success. Operators and players everywhere are responding very positively to the game,” says the Vice President of Gaming Operations at Aristocrat, Dallas Orchard. “We have had a lot of fun working with AMC on this project, and we wish them great success with the premier this Sunday and with the new season.” The slot machine game takes players right in the middle of the apocalyptic action, which is recognisable from the record-breaking show, with the chance to win a grand jackpot which starts from a total of $500,000.
The Walking Dead continues to be the number one show on all of American television amongst the 18 to 49 demographic, and is also the highest rated series in the history of cable television. It was based on the comic book series which was written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, and tells the story of the monks which follow after a zombie apocalypse takes place. It has already earned to Emmy Awards as well as many other accolades, and is currently in its fourth season, with more expected to come. This is a fantastic step forward for Aristocrat, as they are a global provider of land-based and online gaming solutions but have really attracted as much attention in the past. They are licensed by more than 200 regulators and the products which they provide are available in more than ninety countries around the world, so there may be places outside the US where you can find this game as well. They have a diverse range of products and services including casino management systems alongside their electronic gaming machines.
