TNA IMPACT WRESTLING LAUNCHES FIRST EVER ONLINE SLOT MACHINE GAME
United Kingdom (July 5, 2013): TNA IMPACT WRESTLING has become the first ever professional wrestling organisation to launch an online slot machine game.
The game features ‘The Icon’ Sting, Olympic Gold Medallist Kurt Angle, TNA Knockouts Champion Mickie James, Bobby Roode and Velvet Sky.
The partnership with MX Digital and Sky Vegas (www.skyvegas.com) marks an innovative addition to TNA’s ever-expanding roster of partners and licensees. The highly anticipated game – titled TNA IMPACT – is available to those over the age of 18 only, in the UK and Ireland, from today on the Sky Vegas website.
This announcement follows hot on the heels of the launch of TNA IMPACT WRESTLING’s biggest ever UK and Ireland Tour, coming to Dublin, Glasgow, Manchester, London and Birmingham for live events in January/February 2014.
TNA President Dixie Carter said: “I recently returned from such a great visit to the UK where I announced the 2014 TNA Tour, and I’m thrilled to continue expanding TNA’s brand reach in the UK and Ireland with this, first ever online slot game.
“I hope age-appropriate fans will play and enjoy!”
TNA IMPACT WRESTLING is broadcast every Sunday night at 9pm on Challenge and is the highest-rated show on the channel, which is owned by British Sky Broadcasting.
The recent critically acclaimed TNA Wrestling: British Boot Camp reality TV series on Challenge, alongside the release of this TNA IMPACT slot game, supports Sky’s commitment to increase its investment in home grown content to £600m by 2014.
Other TNA IMPACT WRESTLING licensees in the UK and Ireland – from the licensing agent Event Merchandising –include Jakks (action figures), tnadvd.co.uk (DVDs), Fantom (online trading cards), Universal Posters (personalised prints), Grange Publishing (annuals), Danilo (calendars) and GB eye.
Ike McFadden, Director of Business development for MX Digital, added: “Because TNA IMPACT WRESTLING airs on Challenge, part of British Sky Broadcasting, it was a natural fit to launch the game with Sky Vegas.
“They understand the brand and had the experience to support a great cross-media promotions strategy.”
