Alliance Gaming Corp. announced that the first in a series of new reel-spinning and video slot machines based on one of the best-known and most recognizable entertainment brands ”” Playboy ”” has gone live in casinos in Nevada as part of a nationwide rollout.

The first game to be released under the Playboy brand is a traditional three-reel progressive slot machine on Bally Gaming’s popular ProSLOT 6000 platform.

The game’s custom rounded top box features the world-famous Rabbit Head design and familiar Playboy magazine typeface set in an elegantly laminated cabinet with a polished gold door. It is available as either a two-coin $5 or $1 game in a variety of payback percentages. The progressive resets at $5,000 for the $1 game and $25,000 for the $5 game, respectively.

"The images and sophistication of the Playboy brand are perfect for our high-end reel-spinning slot players," said Mickey Roemer, vice president of game development for Bally Gaming.

Future games featuring the Playboy theme include an interactive video slot based on Bally Gaming’s technologically advanced EVO video platform. Also planned is an EVO hybrid version that combines the interactive video capabilities of an EVO video slot device with a traditional reel-spinning slot.

Other slots that have been launched on the EVO platform are Popeye and Ray Charles.

Initial orders have been placed by casinos in Las Vegas, Reno, Lake Tahoe, Atlantic City, California, Louisiana, Mississippi, Indiana and Missouri. Bally Gaming, a wholly owned unit of Alliance Gaming, designs, manufactures, distributes and operates advanced gaming devices and systems worldwide.
