Dolly Parton Brings Another ‘Country’ Slot Machine To Casinos
If you’ve ever walked the casino floors at Turning Stone, Mohegan Sun, Foxwoods, or Saratoga Casino and Raceway, you may have noticed how creative ‘slot’ machines have become. Gone are the days of 3 clunky reels spinning fruit shapes around and spitting out quarters. Now, high tech gaming experiences make you feel like you’re in an actual movie or concert.
If you look closely, you may have even some ‘Country’ themed machines, most noticeably ‘Hee Haw.’ Roy Clark and Buck Owens spin round and round in the Minnie Pearl bonus, while the popular ‘Hee Haw’ theme from Sheb Wooley plays. Meanwhile, Kenny Rogers invites you on the ‘train express’ bonus in the ‘Gambler’ slot machine. In addition, ‘Elvis’ ‘Beverly Hillbillies’ ‘Country Cash’ and ‘Honky Tonk’ style games are popping up in casinos everywhere.
Now, the ultimate Country Diva is joining the fun. Get ready for ‘Dolly Parton’ Video Slots! Players will have a chance to win with the ‘Two Doors Down’ and ‘Nine to Five’ Spinning Reels, interactive juke-box-style song selections, big bonus action and front-row concert experiences all with Dolly cheering the player along.
In a press release Dolly stated, “As you know, I love doing lots of different things and this is the most different thing that I’ve done so far. I’m very excited to be working with IGT with my very own video slot machines and five reel spinning reel games. Wanna play? Well, come on!”
IGT will introduce the Country Music Hall of Famer’s game at the Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas Oct. 2-4, 2012.
