5 Casino Games Based on TV Shows

TV shows often inspire other types of media, and casino games are definitely not afraid to piggyback on the popularity of hit shows from bygone eras, as well as from the current crop of televisual titans.

If you want to spin the reels of a slot that’s loosely based on or officially licensed from your favorite show, take a look at a few of the following and you’ll find hours of familiar fun waiting for you.

Game of Thrones

With a new series inspired by George R. R. Martin’s epic fantasy novels on the way to HBO soon, it’s a great time to revisit the characters that made the original eight seasons so great courtesy of the official Game of Thrones slot.

Available via a number of the new mobile casinos with astonishing offers, this attractive slot has symbols that are inspired by the GoT universe, including dragons, weapons, flaming wilds and much more besides.

The graphics are great, there are some wonderfully realized renditions of the actors from the show, and of course the soundtrack is a stirring mix of orchestral ditties to lift your spirits as you play.

Wheel of Fortune

It makes sense that this unforgettable game show would have its own casino equivalent, and there are actually a multitude of versions of Wheel of Fortune out there, some of which are more closely associated with the series that inspired them than others.

What makes a lot of these games appealing is the inclusion of bonus games that are based around the titular wheel itself, letting you get the chance to multiply your potential winnings, or unlock some other extra feature. Wheel of Fortune Megaways is the most popular slot of the bunch, and so is probably worth prioritizing.

Baywatch

Back in the 1990s, Baywatch was the hottest show on TV, both in terms of its viewing figures and of course the suntanned guys and gals who starred in it.

Today, it may have fallen from grace with the substandard movie reboot not managing to wow critics. But you can look to the golden era of the show with the official Baywatch slot game.

With a great presentation, provided courtesy of the expert developers over at IGT, the Baywatch slot boasts everything you’d want from the experience, from famous faces to fabulous effects which help to evoke the seaside scenes that typified the show.

Rick and Morty Megaways

Arguably the most impressively crude and simultaneously philosophical animated series ever made, Rick and Morty is still going strong on the small screen, and has formed the foundation of a casino game as well.

Unlike a lot of slots, this game has six reels rather than five or fewer. It also offers impressive bonuses in the form of free spins, so you’ll have the opportunity to boost your luck without having to pay for every single spin of the reels.

The nihilistic genius Rick Sanchez and his plucky but foolish grandson Morty are of course featured on the symbols, as are other iconic elements of the show, such as their cobbled together spaceship, which acts as the wild.

The Simpsons

More of a wholesome family show than Rick and Morty, The Simpsons has been around for over 30 years at this point, and there are still new episodes coming out.

If you love Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie and the hundreds of other characters that make up the Simpsons universe, then you’ll find quite a few in the slot of the same name. There are even clips from the show, so it goes above and beyond your average TV casino game!
