Like with any good thing in the entertainment industry, once they're a hit in one area, they often go on to be successful in others too. This can certainly be said of TV shows, which are watched by millions of people around the world on a regular basis. There have been some television series' both casinos classics and non-gambling which really have captured the imagination and have not only gone on to make it as video games, but developers have rushed to turn them into successful slot games too. Let's take a look at some TV classics which have gone on to be hits in the casino world.
Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones is arguably the biggest TV show on the planet right now and has been very popular since first airing back in 2011. It's a show that viewers simply can't get enough of and that has seen GoT excel in other areas too. It quickly made the shift into the gaming world
and the slot game produced by market leaders Microgaming is very popular in the online casino world. The five reel slot game has 243 different ways for players to win and with Microgaming holding the license, there's likely to be more slot games produced in the future.
Star Trek is one of the most popular sci-fi shows
ever to hit television screens. Even people who weren't science fiction fans found themselves watching the likes of James T. Kirk and Spock. The show has been running since way back in 1966 and is still going strong now. So it comes as no surprise that there have been slot game versions created based on the show with Star Trek Red Alert by WMS being the pick of the bunch. It's based on the original series and features all the original and most famous characters, with authentic music and sound effects too.
Family Guy is a hugely popular animated American sitcom that has millions of viewers on a regular basis. IGN currently rank it 6th
on the all-time list of cartoons for adults. Since it first hit the screens nearly a decade ago it became an instant hit and has even spawned a spin off in the form of The Cleveland Show. Family Guy centres on a dysfunctional family and the move into the games industry was a natural one. There have been great console and mobile games and the slot version by IGT is extremely popular at online casinos too. Players get to experience an authentic Family Guy experience with all the popular characters making an appearance on the reels.
Battlestar Galactica rose in popularity rapidly after debuting in October 2004. It's an American military science fiction TV show which is set in a star system far, far away.
