Posted 3/3/11 : Innovative branded games follow the popular Sherlock Holmes and Chippendales slots
Online gambling software group GTechG2 has inked a multi-year licensing deal with CBS Consumer Products to develop online casino games based on the popular American television series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami and CSI: New York.
The first CSI casino game will become available to GTechG2 licensees in approved jurisdictions by the end of this year.
“Everybody loves a great mystery complete with fingerprints, DNA traces and characters with shady alibis. No wonder CSI is an international sensation,” said Dominic Mansour, vice president, Gaming Products of the group.
“Thanks to our agreement with CBS Consumer Products, we can incorporate the intrigue and suspense of CSI within our interactive games to thrill game players and CSI fans throughout the world.”
The fictional CSI crime shows track a team of dedicated forensic investigators as they collect and analyse evidence in their dimly-lit, high-tech labs to solve grisly murders. First launched in 2000, CSI is one of the most watched TV shows in the world. The show is a three-time winner of the "International Television Audience Award (Best Television Drama Series)" by the Festival de Télévision de Monte-Carlo.
Previously released games from GTechG2 based on licensed brands include Chippendales: The Reel Deal and the Sherlock Holmes slots. Earlier this year at ICE in London, the company previewed its soon-to-be-released slots game based on the popular video game Plants vs Zombies
