As part of the NYX Gaming Group’s omni-channel slot range, mobile betting operator William Hill has announced that they will release Judge Dredd the Mobile Slot across all their gaming platforms which include desktop, mobile and retail outlets. This is some exciting news as it expands upon the comic-book themed slot market with a wider appeal and a slightly more ‘adult’ approach to the often kid-friendly MARVEL series.
The World of Judge Dredd
First published in British comic book magazine, 2,000 AD, ‘Judge Dredd’ has been a cult favourite that has since gained wider appeal since the 1970s. There have been two film adaptations to date (Judge Dredd in 1995 and the infinitely superior Dredd in 2012 starring Karl Urban).
You could say, then, this slot has been a long time coming. Released in 2014, the game is set in a post-apocalyptic/dystopian future where crime is off-the-scale. It’s a 5 reel/25 payline slot where players could win 10 Free Spins and the classic “I Am The Law” Bonus.
The slot is part of NextGen’s ‘Superbet’ slot series and presents a hook for the more ‘adult comic book’ market. The usual MARVEL heroes like Thor, Captain america and Iron Man have already been given the slot treatment and although they are quite enjoyable, the appeal of those characters is more towards children and presents a less gritty approach to superheros and comic books in general.
Judge Dredd (though far from a hero) is very much an established adult-orientated character. It’s success over the years has far outreached its underground comic book origins and has achieved mainstream appeal. This is largely why NYX have picked it up.
About William Hill
Along with its Casino Club, William Hill remains one of top casinos here at Droid Slots for a reason. Frequent bonuses and top promotions give players more and more reason to stick with them. Of course, it helps that they are an established retail chain too.
It may be the staple of every high street across the country but William Hill’s online presence is a force to be reckoned with also with many live table games and slots to boast. The most extensive part of its site is perhaps the sports betting section with football, horse-racing and greyhounds galore.
With the Avengers Slot under its belt, too, we’d say the Judge Dredd Slot is a welcome addition among its ranks.
