In the latest and possible most unusual licensing news involving The Walking Dead yet, Aristocrat has announced that they will be making Walking Dead slot machines. Aristocrat’s The Walking Dead slot machine game will be based on the hit AMC TV series and will include video clips and images from the show.
The Walking Dead slot machines are set to be released in casinos across North America in early fall 2013. The release is being timed to coordinate with The Walking Dead Season 4 premiering on AMC.
“We are very excited to bring AMC’s The Walking Dead to our product line of player-favorite games. We have been very aggressive in bringing top licensed products to operators and to their players, and this new license with AMC and The Walking Dead is a continuation of that strategy,” said Dallas Orchard, who is Aristocrat’s Vice President of Gaming Operations.
“Capitalizing on the show’s dedicated following; we have designed a game that will appeal to the show’s audience which consistently draws a viewership, the most for any show on television for the 18-49 demographic. Clips and images from the show will combine with our proven math models to create an incredible experience,” Orchard added.
