Aristocrat to Develop Westworld Slots
WESTWORLD was one of the biggest hit television shows of 2016 and as it gets ready to return for season 2 this year, Aristocrat is planning to launch a new slots game in honour of it. The new WESTWORLD pokie will make its debut at the Global Gaming Expo later this month.
An HBO drama, WESTWORLD chronicles the lives of staff and visitors to a Western ‘theme park’ where they act out various adventures. The staff are androids who are slowly beginning to gain consciousness, and the series explores various facets of humanity through its characters and their internal struggles.
The series has been well-received with an outstanding 22 Emmy nominations, and drawing in an average of 13 million viewers. WESTWORLD has been recognised as one of the most successful new HBO shows in history.
“We are thrilled to present our customers with the excitement of the WESTWORLD Slot Game,” said Siobhan Lane, Aristocrat Senior Vice President, Marketing & Gaming Operations North America. “At Aristocrat, our absolute number one priority with every game we create is to help our customers provide their players with an entertaining experience. We aggressively pursue the very best and most influential licenses to achieve that mission, and WESTWORLD is a very exciting addition.”
Currently, the won’t know much about the new WESTWORLD slot from Aristocrat but we will certainly keep you updated when we find out the details. What has been revealed so far is mostly about the design of the cabinet, as WESTWORLD will debut on the new flame55 cabinet that features a 55” curved 4K monitor, symphonic stereo sound and advanced ergonomics.
This is just one of many amazing branded slots to come from Aristocrat in recent history. Over the years, the company has launched some amazing games based on movies, tv series and other pop culture icons – including: Dumb and Dumber, The Big Bang Theory, Britney Spears, A Christmas Story, Game of Thrones and Batman.
Most of these pokies have only been released at land-based casinos – but we hope that they will eventually debut online. Players on the web will certainly be excited to see some of their favourite films and tv shows as impressive and engaging slots.
