Social and mobile game developer Dragonplay has partnered with King Features Syndicate to launch Popeye Slots on Google Play. The game sees players betting virtual winnings on slot machines featuring characters from the classic Popeye cartoon, including Olive, Bluto, Wimpy, Swee’Pea, and of course Popeye himself.
The game features multiple slot machines in a carnival setting, as well as a mini-game that sees players catching flying spinach cans for Popeye at the fair. Players of Dragonplay’s Slot City Game can unlock the theme as they level-up.
“We are proud to partner with King Features to provide players with an action-packed slots game that brings one of the most widely-recognized cartoons to life in an all-new way,” said Sharon Tal, Founder and CEO of Dragonplay. “The stunning hand-drawn animation of these classic Popeye characters gives this unique slot machine game stand-out style and endless entertainment.”
Popeye fans might recognize the game’s name as one used by a previous mobile app, created by Ludia and released back in April 2013. That game is no longer available.
“We are delighted to see our classic character move from his wildly successful animation career on the big and little screens to a gorgeously-done slots game for mobile devices,” added Jarred Goro, Licensing Manager for the Popeye property. “Popeye Slots is entertaining on so many levels, so we know fans and newcomers alike will be pleased, no matter how they feel about spinach!”
Popeye Slots and Slot City are available for free on Google Play. Check back soon to follow the game on AppData, our tracking platform for mobile and social apps and developers.
