Zynga’s a fan of branded slot machines, as its mobile and Facebook game Hit it Rich! Casino Slots is full of branded machines for properties like “Sex and the City,” Ted and The Wizard of Oz. Even Duck Dynasty, the reality TV show, has a machine within the game, but that wasn’t enough. Now, Zynga and A&E have partnered to bring the Robertson family to their very own mobile game, appropriately titled Duck Dynasty Slots.
In this standalone app, players are given an arcade-style, level-based slot machine experience. It’s one that focuses on progression over time, as players earn experience points for each spin, and can win bonus XP that falls on the reels.
As players level up, they unlock higher maximum bet amounts and limited time payout bonuses, among other prizes. Over time, gamers unlock new themes inspired by episodes from the television show, and if they’re lucky, they’ll gain access to mini-games like the roulette wheel. This wheel offers a chance at doubling or quadrupling a spin’s prize.
Gamers can connect to Facebook to access their progress across devices (and to send gifts to friends), and can purchase additional in-game currency at any time in order to keep playing indefinitely. Players also receive free coins every few hours, so long as they manually collect them.
