When Aristocrat launched The Walking Dead poker machine in 2014, it was met with plenty of praise from players and casino managers alike. The Walking Dead pokie was such a huge success that Aristocrat decided to launch a sequel, which has made its debut at land-based casinos this week.
The new Walking Dead II poker machine made its world premiere at the Pechanga Resort and Casino in California. It is expected to be a huge hit among patrons, and will soon be launched at a wider range of casinos across America.
The first Walking Dead pokie was based on the first two seasons of the game. The sequel game will feature bonuses that are based on the third season – so we’ll see popular characters like Michonne who stars in her own Attack Bonus round. There is also the generous Governor Jackpot Bonus and Governor Free Games. During the base game, there are zombie-themed bonuses is like Reel Growth (which expands the game to have 300 paylines) and Wild Horde multipliers.
“We are thrilled to host the world premiere of this exciting new game,” said Alex Rodriguez of Pechanga Casino. “Pechanga is known for our distinctive events, and we are excited to be the first casino in the world to bring The Walking Dead II Slot Game to our players.”
Aristocrat is well-known for its branded slots games. Its Sons of Anarchy and Batman Classic TV pokies are favourites at land-based casinos around the world, and it is great to the manufacturer creating more fun games based on TV shows.
Currently, there are no Aussie casinos that offer players the chance to play the Walking Dead II poker machine – but, we will keep our eyes peeled. As soon as this game is available here, we will let you know!
