Video game companies and slot machines often have intertwining histories. Many game companies have turned their attention to slots in recent years, and some even started in the gambling industry. SEGA is a perfect example of the latter, and yesterday they returned to those slot machine roots with SEGA Slots, a new mobile app that puts many of the company’s key franchises into the world of casino gaming. You can read SEGA’s full press release and check out some screenshots of the app below.
SEGA Networks, Inc. launches SEGA Slots, the progression-based casino app showcasing characters from your favorite SEGA® games, for mobile devices. Harkening back to SEGA’s inception as a producer of standalone slot machines in the 1950’s, SEGA Slots celebrates the company’s history, while embracing a new genre of mobile experience. It is now available to download for free with in-app purchase from the App Store for iPhone and iPad or Google Play Store for Android devices.
SEGA Slots features fan-favorite SEGA classics including Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Monkey Ball, Golden Axe, Shinobi, and Samba De Amigo, reimagined in Vegas-style casino games. Each of the eight unlockable slot machines available at launch boasts vibrant graphics, fast-paced, fun-packed gameplay, and plenty of opportunities for players to win big. In the Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Monkey Ball themed bonus games, players can help Sonic rescue his friends and earn huge payouts along the way, or join their friends in Super Monkey Ball Slots’ multiplayer mode to win big banana bonuses. Following launch, additional machines with fresh content will be added regularly to keep players winning and spinning in new and exciting ways.
