Viewers in America are crazy about Duck Dynasty Mania. For those of you who don’t follow the reality TV world, Duck Dynasty is a TV show dedicated to the Robertson family of villagers who run the legendary Duck Commander hunting company. The show explores the antics of the family as well as the business, creating a story that is both engaging and touching. This formula for success has resulted in huge ratings for the show, which has millions of viewers and hundreds of millions of dollars in product sales and advertising.
Notorious for sparking controversy in 2013 over Phil’s comments about sexuality, Duck Dynasty has shrunk its audience a bit, but remains hugely popular and certainly deserves a land-based casino slot machine.
Bally Technologies has signed license rights with Duck Dynasty and plans to release a new casino slot machine across North America. The slot cabinet is part of the Alpha 2 Pro series and looks quite nice, equipped with a high definition touchscreen monitor curved for maximum effect.
We loved the crisp graphics that include the reel symbols that depict all the main actors like Uncle C, Phil, Willie, and Corey. There are also other drum symbols such as mallards, frogs and some very beautiful wives of the Robertsons.
In terms of features, the game includes several bonus games designed to keep your attention. Bonus games are determined by the Wheel of Fortune, which falls on a specific bonus or side game that players can participate in. The first of these bonus rounds is the Froggin ‘Free Games, which are pop-up free spins that allow players to get more free spins. The second big feature is the Lucky Ducks bonus, in which players activate the duck call and reveal big prizes. The third feature is Fishing for Credits, where players look into the tackle box for win multipliers and free spins. The fourth feature is Willy’s Bullseye Bonus, where players try to get the best marksmanship in an archery competition where they can make huge amounts of money. The fifth bonus round is the Si Sideshow Bonus, which shows Uncle X spinning on the screen during the Wheel of Fortune, where players can earn winning multipliers. The final bonus is a giant wheel that gives out thousands of credits with a maximum win of 10,000 credits.
Bally Technologies makes this video slot accessible to all types of players, allowing low-stakes players to play the slot for a long time thanks to the fact that you can reduce denominations and bet levels to ensure that each spin fits your budget. Of course, this can also be increased slightly to give you the ability to take home a huge amount of money.
While the game is in the works for release, Bally is a bit shy about revealing a ton of details. One would expect a game of this magnitude to be associated with some kind of progressive jackpot, but we have not heard that this is the case. Also, no exact release date has been given for this slot, although we expect it to be delivered to land-based casinos across North America in the fourth quarter of 2014 or sometime in early 2015.
Whether you are a big Duck Dynasty fan or not, there is no denying that Duck Dynasty Slot is an impressive looking game that combines crisp visuals, many features, and loud audio. We really look forward to trying it out when it comes out.
