The TV shows that need to be made into slot machines

If you’re like me, your favorite thing to do (aside from playing online slots, of course) is watch a little TV. Maybe you’re binge watching Orange is the New Black on Netflix. Or maybe you’re just into throwing on a random network television show while you unwind for the day. Whatever I happen to be watching, I can’t help imagine what it would be like to see some of my favorite shows turned into an online slot machine. Here are my top five ideas.

House of Cards

The Netflix original series is captivating and mesmerizing – even if you’re not into politics, the drama, the plot, the whole idea of what politics might really be about is just impressive and definitely well performed on this amazing story.

I’d personally love to see a slot machine featuring Frank Underwood bonus rounds where he moves from House Whip to VP with big prize multipliers every time his rank increases. Or a jackpot round that pops if and when he becomes President of the United States.

The Tonight Show

So maybe this one doesn’t seem all that fun on the surface. But think about it, it does have enough material to make it not only elusive, but incredibly.

Imagine how many different symbols you can have, just in the last 5 years alone. You’ve got Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien, Jay Leno (again), and Jimmy Fallon. Throw in some old school hosts like Carson, various bandleaders, and you’ve got yourself quite the game. We’re thinking 60 paylines—one for each year the show has been on.

The Walking Dead

I don’t care if you like zombies or hate them, a slot machine based on The Walking Dead would be hands down amazing, not to mention the possibility of a Zombie Apocalypse has never surfaced out thoughts so much as it does now.

Take on the role of Rick and go “walker” hunting with Darrel by your side. Or play the bonus round and try to escape the wrath of the Governor as he tries to take control of the prison. Hopefully I haven’t spoiled too much for you here. Hey, at least I didn’t tell you that the Governor kills Glenn and Maggie. Oops. Just kidding. Or am I?

How I Met Your Mother

HIMYM27032014

This hit CBS TV show, which finally comes to an end today (Monday, March 31st in case you’re reading this later), is all about learning how Ted finally meets his wife. Maybe a slots game could help us discover who the real mother is and how they met. Think about it. Land on five matching Mother symbols and hit the jackpot. Or hit three suit and ties and enter the Barney Bro Code Bonus round.

If there is one thing we need to have no matter what is a big and flashy “Legen….wait for it….day” banner popping up when you hit the jackpot!

Marvel’s Agents of Shield

I think super heroes and the army that keeps them safe would work great as an online slot machine. I’d love to see bonus rounds involving real super heroes from The Avengers.

Imagine landing on the Hulk symbols and rocketing into an Angry Bonus round. Or hitting the Captain America jackpot right after ripping through an Iron Man feature game. The possibilities are endless.
