(PRESS RELEASE) Playtech has launched a premium branded progressive slot game based on the 1980’s classic film Dirty Dancing loved by millions worldwide.
The hit dance romance was the first film to sell more than one million home videos when it was released in 1987 and celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. The property was licensed to Playtech by Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B).
Playtech’s new slot remains true to the original film and contains a host of memorable scenes, including the film’s climactic lift set to a classic ballroom soundtrack.
The game contains a series of incredible features, including the chance to win big across two jackpot levels, a Johnny and Baby jackpot, as well as 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.
Retro-style symbols include all the film’s main characters, dancing shoes, vinyl records, a classic 1950s sports car, and jewels that award a large pay out if you manage to get three in a row and enter the Dirty Dancing Jackpot Game.
James Frendo, Casino Director, Playtech said: “Dirty Dancing is such an iconic brand that it was an obvious choice for us to transform into a leading branded slot. The game is sure to be an instant hit with our licensees’ players both old and new.”
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.”
