Social and mobile game company Zynga has announced the launch of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory Slots on Facebook and mobile.
The slot machine game is the first licensed game from Zynga’s multi-year agreement with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and features slot machines based on scenes from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. The game includes sounds, character voices and artwork from the movie.
To begin, players have access to the ‘Candy Man Can’ slot machine, and will unlock additional machines as they level up. While playing, gamers can choose from different wager amounts and earn experience points with every spin. Auto-spin is also available.
While Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory Slots offers nine main slot machines at launch (with more coming in the future), a separate ‘High Roller World’ of machines becomes available to players once they accumulate 24 million credits. While gamers can purchase additional credits with real money, the game also rewards players with free credits over time, so they can keep playing if they run out.
In a statement, Joe Kaminkow, chief game designer and senior vice president of slots at Zynga, commented:
Beloved by generations, the Wonka-verse is full of pure imagination and whimsical fun making it the perfect setting for an immersive social slots experience. With timeless characters and scenes inspired by the original film featuring Charlie, Willy Wonka and the other Golden Ticket winners, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory Slots allows players to enter the unpredictable world of Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, experiencing the movie magic in a whole new way.
