IGT’s DoubleDown Casino unveils Ellen De Generes slot game

23 May 2016

International Game Technology (IGT) has expanded the portfolio of games on its DoubleDown Casino social gaming application with the launch of a new slot title related to US television host Ellen DeGeneres.

Inspired by IGT’s namesake land-based casino game, ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show Have a Little Fun Today Slots’ features original voiceovers as well as clips from the television programme.

The 75-payline social game also has many of the features that are included in the land-based version, such as bonus rounds ‘What's in the Box’, ‘Ellen's Wheel of Riches’ and ‘Dunk Tank’.

In addition, the ‘Have a Little Fun Today’, which can be spontaneously triggered by players, offers a further chance to win virtual chips.

Joe Sigrist, DoubleDown Interactive senior vice-president and general manager, said: “With The Ellen DeGeneres Show Have a Little Fun Today Slots, DoubleDown Casino is giving millions of 'Ellen' fans a new way to engage with her anytime, anywhere.

“Between the funny voiceovers and original clips, the game offers the next best thing to having Ellen dancing right by your side.”
