Playtech hit the floor with Dirty Dancing online slot
Playtech has launched a new progressive jackpot slot game based on the iconic Dirty Dancing film from the 1980s.
The online gaming technology, services and software provider recognized this iconic brand loved by millions worldwide as an obvious choice to be transformed into what is expected to become a leading branded slot.
Marking the Film’s Anniversary
The launch concurs with the 30th anniversary of the movie’s release in 1987. This hit romance with Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze was the first film to sell more than one million home videos and its soundtrack generated two multi-platinum albums. The property was licenced to Playtech by Lionsgate, New York-listed entertainment and media company.
Peter Levin, President of Interactive Ventures and Games, Lionsgate, said: “Thirty years after its arrival, the original ‘nobody puts Baby in a corner’ Dirty Dancing remains a deeply memorable classic that helped define a generation of cinema. We’re proud to work with great partners like Playtech to leverage our unique properties to connect with fans around the world.”
This 5-reel and 40-payline slot remains true to the original film and gives you a chance to win big across multiple jackpot levels – Johnny and Baby jackpot, the Dirty Dancing Jackpot Game, Whirling Wilds with up to six random wilds in any spin, Dancing Wilds stacked in Free Games and up to 35 free games with expanding wilds.
The slot contains characters from the actual film: Baby, Penny and Johnny as Wild symbol and retro-style symbols like vinyl records, a radio, dancing shoes, classic 1950s sports car and jewels that award a large payout if you manage to get at least three in a row and enter the Dirty Dancing Jackpot Game.
Playtech delivers the industry’s leading and largest portfolio of omni-channel slot games with more than 600 best-performing titles available across all platforms and devices. Dirty Dancing slot is sure to continue the trend and become an instant hit both with the old and new licensees’ players.
Dirty Dancing fans can play the slot on all devices from 40c to $1,000 per spin and enjoy the true movie experience since it maintains the 1960s theme with players being able to see many memorable scenes from the actual film, including the film’s climactic lift set to a classic ballroom soundtrack.
