Dolly Parton Slot Machines to Debut in Las Vegas
Global icon Dolly Parton has teamed with IGT (International Game Technology) to incorporate her chart-topping hits in both video slot and five-reel spinning reel games for casinos. "Dolly Parton Video Slots," along with "Two Doors Down" and "Nine to Five Spinning Reels" feature interactive jukebox-style song selections, big bonus action and front-row concert experiences all with Dolly cheering the player along.
"As you know, I love doing lots of different things and this is the most different thing that I've done so far," says the superstar entertainer. "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!"
The new gaming machines will make their debut at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) 2012 in Las Vegas from Oct. 2-4.
"IGT's unrivaled game experiences and localized content has made our games the most sought after on casino floors today," says Eric Tom, IGT executive vice president of Global Sales. "At G2E, our new portfolio will drive unmatched performance for our casino customers. From the excitement of Dolly Parton Slots and the classic action of our new spinning reel and video slot titles to revolutionary game play of our skill-based titles and 3D Multi Layer Display (MLD) technology, we will premiere the fan favorites of the future."
The slot machines are just the latest venture this year to incorporate Dolly as a key feature. In addition to her gold-certified live CD/DVD, and her upcoming book, "Dream More: Celebrate the Dreamer in You," the award-winning documentary "Hollywood to Dollywood," featuring 17 of Dolly's songs, recently made its theatrical debut New York and Los Angeles. While she continues to work on the Broadway musical based on her storybook life, one project, the Nashville water park Dolly announced earlier this year, appears to be on hold for now.
