Isle of Man-based Playtech has announced the launch of the latest addition to its extensive portfolio.
It is a premium progressive video slot, based on the 1987 American romantic drama dancing film Dirty Dancing, starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey as Johnny and Baby.
A massive box office hit and the first movie to sell more than one million copies on home video, Dirty Dancing has reached the status of a classic, not losing on its popularity even 30 years after it was premiered.
Playtech’s new release, licensed by Lionsgate, American entertainment and media company, will remain true to the original, bringing plenty of unforgettable scenes from the movie, including the iconic one from the dancing finale, along with the famous soundtrack.
The punters can look forward to a feature-rich release, which offers the chance to grab hefty payouts with two jackpots in play – each one dedicated to the film’s main protagonists, Johnny and Baby. Much more awaits with the Dirty Dancing Jackpot Game, Dancing Wilds and Whirling Wilds – with up to six random Wilds per spin, while stacked Dancing Wilds can bring up to 35 spins in the Free Spins feature.
You’ll find retro-styled symbols on the reels, including the film’s protagonists, dancing shoes, record, and even a classic sports car from that era.
James Frendo, Casino Director at Playtech said Dirty Dancing had been such an obvious choice for the developer because of its iconic status. He added he was sure the game would be an instant hit among both old and new players.
On the other hand, Peter Levin, President of Interactive Ventures and Games, Lionsgate, said the company was proud to work with such a great partner like Playtech to bring such a deeply memorable classic to slots.
Since the beginning of the year, Playtech has revealed a series of high-end Omni-channel slot games, including the popular Age of the Gods edition. The company has the leading and largest selection of Omni-channel titles, while its portfolio offers more than 600 games available across all platforms and devices.
