Israeli social gaming studio Dragonplay has entered into a partnership with King Features Syndicate to develop a new social casino slot game based on popular cartoon character Popeye. Dragonplay, the makers of popular casino games Slot City and Live Holdem Poker Pro, will expand its brand portfolio with the release of Popeye Slots – a game featuring the legendary spinach-eating cartoon hero Popeye and his cast of friends including Olive, Bluto, Wimpy and Swee’Pea.
The game is now available as a free download on Google Play, and also includes a mini game where Popeye collects flying spinach cans at the fair.
Dragonplay founder and CEO Sharon Tal said: “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.
The stunning hand-drawn animation of these classic Popeye characters gives this unique slot machine game stand-out style and endless entertainment.”
King Features Syndicate is a member of Hearst Entertainment and Syndication Group, and is one of the world’s premier distributors of comics, columns, editorial cartoons, puzzles and games, distributing in print and online some 150 features to nearly 5,000 daily, Sunday, weekly and digital newspapers and other outlets around the globe.
“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,” said Jarred Goro, licensing manager for the Popeye property. “Popeye Slots is entertaining on so many levels, including a bonus game just for high scorers, so we know fans and newcomers alike will be pleased, no matter how they feel about spinach.”
