There’s usually a huge buzz before the annual G2E (Global Gaming Expo) with big names being attached to new games. It’s been relatively quiet this year aside from the confirmed Friends, Mad Men and Wonder Woman slot machines we told you about last week. Things hit a new high yesterday, though, when IGT announced they’ll have not one, but two Ellen slots.
These won’t just be machines featuring comedienne Ellen DeGeneres. Rather, they will be based on her hit daytime talk show. The games will be known as The Ellen DeGeneres Show™ Featuring Ellen’s Dance Party Video Slots and The Ellen DeGeneres Show™ Featuring 12 Days of Giveaways Video Slots.
The slot machines will put players in the middle of their favorite “Ellen” moments and will come with the exceptional sound and huge screens (in this case, 42″ vertical touchscreens) that all new games do, these days.
Just as any Ellen fan would expect, The Ellen DeGeneres Show™ Featuring Ellen’s Dance Party Video Slots will have players chair-dancing while the 12 Days of Giveaways Video Slots will be holiday-themed, just like on the show. Fans will also recognize the “Know or Go” and “Wheel of Riches” bonus rounds, too. There’s no definite timeline as to when the machines will start popping up on gaming floors, but keep an eye on VegasChatter so you’ll know before you go.
“I’m so excited to have my very own line of slot machines. People are gonna have the chance to play really fun games, have their own mini dance parties and win actual cold, hard cash. I mean, honestly, what more do you want from me?”
