Following in the footsteps of the likes of Michael Jackson, Elvis, Guns N’ Roses and Jimi Hendrix, Madonna is the latest music icon to lend her name to the world of casino slots.

Major slot game developer Aristocrat has announced it will be showcasing the slot at the casino industry showcase G2E in Las Vegas in October.

Due to the popularity of slots based on music legends, it is no surprise to see one of its most enduring icons signed up to feature on the reels.

Madonna shot to fame in 1983 with Holiday, making the top 20 in both the US and UK and has since had a stellar career that has seen her become the world’s biggest selling female artist as well as an inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The slot has a vast array of music to choose from as its soundtrack, including all of her 57 chart hits, and 38 top ten singles.

Madonna slot just like a prayer

In a press release, Aristocrat has hinted that there might be more than one Madonna slot to come out of this licensing deal.

It suggested that each slot will have its own unique gameplay complete with music from some of Madonna’s defining eras.

That approach would certainly cover off the many reinventions Madonna has made for herself over the years – the early 1980s incarnation was a very different animal to the fetishistic and controversial era of early 90s Erotica.

It would be hard to encompass the pop stars’ iconic status within one slot.

While this will be a land-based casino slot, there is no word on whether it will make the shift to online.

“Aristocrat aggressively pursues the absolute best and most iconic brands to inspire us to create games that help our operator partners give their players the most engaging and entertaining experience possible,” said Matt Wilson, Aristocrat’s managing director of the Americas.

Rich Schneider, Aristocrat’s chief product officer, said: “There is no bigger name in the history of pop music than Madonna, and we are thrilled to welcome the brand into Aristocrat’s enviable family of licensed product.”
