The Walking Dead Slot Game is invading casinos from coast to coast across North America from San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino in Highland, Calif., to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla., to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, N.J., and countless casinos in between.

Aristocrat's The Walking Dead Slot Game grabs players and puts them right in the middle of the record?breaking show's gritty post?apocalyptic world with a chance to win a grand jackpot that starts at $500,000, according to company press materials.

"The Walking Dead Slot Game is the perfect marriage between TV's leading drama and the gaming industry's leading developer," said Theresa Beyer, AMC's vice president of promotions and activation in a prepared statement. "The show keeps viewers on the edge of their seats, and Aristocrat now delivers that same experience for gaming fans."

The Walking Dead Slot Game made its debut at the Global Gaming Expo late last year to rave reviews from attendees and press. The Las Vegas Sun noted the game was "by far the most popular game at G2E." The dynamic game is housed in Aristocrat's award?winning VERVEhd cabinet and is packed with video clips and images from the show, exciting features, and an abundance of bonus opportunities. The experience is heightened by Aristocrat's surround sound iChair for a completely engrossing game that challenges players to win the fight for survival.

"Capitalizing on the show's dedicated following, we stayed true to the ethos of the AMC series while creating this game,” said Dallas Orchard, vice president of gaming operations for Aristocrat. “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."
