Forget Kryptonite — starting fourth quarter 2009, Superman’s biggest problem will be trying to line up triple 7s.
CryptoLogic Limited has announced that it will expand its online slots games to incorporate the DC Universe. By the end of the year, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Green Arrow, and Aquaman will all have their own slots games.
“CryptoLogic leads the way in bringing the world’s biggest entertainment brands to the world’s best Internet casinos, and there are few brands bigger than the DC superheroes,” said CryptoLogic president and CEO Brian Hadfield in a release. “It’s all about doing what we do best: branded games are the fastest-growing part of our business, and we expect these and other games will help drive CryptoLogic’s revenue growth for years to come.”
I’m not 100% sure what the target audience for all this is, but apparently Superman and Batman aren’t the first superheroes to have their name on a slot machine: CryptoLogic has previously made games based on the Spider-Man and Hulk franchises.
