An online version of the slot has premiered on IGT’s social gaming platform, DoubleDown Casino, where players can also indulge in free versions of titles like Kitty Glitter and Siberian Storm. The Orange is the New Black slot is a five-reel, 30-payline game and features slick graphics and the show’s favourite characters, including protagonist Piper Kerman and Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren. As the character symbols stack up on the reels, players are treated to clips from the show. There are also free spins, multipliers and several other bonus features.
Joe Sigrist, the senior Vice President of IGT and the general manager of DoubleDown Casino, was positive about the partnership with Lionsgate, saying in a press release that the company had “created some of the greatest entertainment brands in the world. Our companies share a passion for delivering premium content across multiple platforms, and our collaboration inspired tremendous creativity and authenticity in the Orange is the New Black slots.”
Peter Levin, the President of Interactive Ventures and Games at Lionsgate, added that “by extending Orange is the New Black into IGT slots for casinos, desktop and mobile, we’re providing millions of existing fans with fun, interactive new ways to enjoy the show while introducing its unique mix of drama, excitement, and humour to a whole new audience,” said Levin.
