Playtech Goes Live with New Branded Slot: Dirty Dancing

There’s a new slot on the market from Playtech, and you might have some fond memories of its theme, as it’s based on the film in which it shares its name, Dirty Dancing! The classic 80’s film comes to life across the reels of this new progressive jackpot game, which launched in time for the 30th anniversary of the film. The release also comes after the finalization of a licensing agreement between both Playtech and Lionsgate, which granted the leading game supplier the rights to release a slot version of the film.

Its name is not the only element of this new slot that will remind players of the film. In fact, certain win combinations will trigger actual scenes from the movie to play across the screen, and a myriad of symbols contribute to the theme as well, including a pair of dancing shoes, and all of your favorite characters, such as Johnny and Baby, are sure to make an appearance.

Key combinations created can also form whirling wilds, stacked dancing wilds, and also initiate up to 35 free games with expanding wilds! To make matters even sweeter, the game is further equipped with two jackpot levels, with one named, ‘Johnny and Baby,’ after the couple in the film, and the other, the ‘Dirty Dancing Jackpot Game.’

James Frendo, casino director for Playtech, commented, “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.”

“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,” added, President of Interactive Ventures and Games for Lionsgate, Peter Levin.
