Scientific Games to be Given Exclusive License for James Bond Slot Machine

The 25th James Bond movie might still be a work in progress but that does not mean companies have not already been lining up to acquire the rights to the brand. When the film does finally come to our screens, one can rest assured that any gaming or gambling tie- ins will come courtesy of Scientific Games Corp.

The American software supplier has forged a new licensing agreement with the film franchise. They are to develop a range of omni- channel games. All of which will feature the fictional British Secret Service agent – James Bond. This new licensing agreement will not only give Scientific Games the rights to produce content based on the up- coming film but all other past and future Bond movies.

Six iconic actors have officially played the 007 character on the silver screen to date in existing James Bond films. This includes the likes of legendary actors such as Roger Moore, Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan and most recently Daniel Craig. The firm also landed the rights to use all of these figures in their design.

The casino supplier has also confirmed that they will be releasing a range of omni- channel games. These will be distributed to their land- based casino, lottery and social casino partners.

The first James Bond- themed slot game is expected to be showcased as early as later this year. Scientific Games has promised to introduce the slot machine product at this year’s G2E event, which is to be held in October at the gambling capital of the world – Las Vegas.
