The Comic Rack: It’s Progressive Slots Man!!!
Just another notch in the arguement that mainstream comic books aren’t a kids market anymore.
CryptoLogic Limited, arguably the worlds biggest gambling software company has aquired the rights to use DC Comic characters for their online slots. CryptoLogic expects to have games featuring the new cast by the fourth quater of 2009. This means Superman and Batman will be competing to get their triple sevens and your money. Other heroes made available include the Flash, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Green Arrow. All will have their own slot games by the end of the year.
Brian Hadfield, CryptoLogic president and CEO, said, “CryptoLogic leads the way in bringing the world’s biggest entertainment brands to the world’s best Internet casinos, and there are few brands bigger than the DC superheroes. It’s all about doing what we do best: branded games are the fastest-growing part of our business, and we expect these and other games will help drive CryptoLogic’s revenue growth for years to come.”
CryptoLogic’s previous comic-based games came from the Marvel brand, featuring such characters as Spider-Man and the Incredible Hulk. The company’s software for online casinos has drawn fantastic response to previous comic issues.
Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s Superman doubling down!!
Another sign of the apocalypse…
