SEGA goes back to its roots with new slots offering
By Robert Simmons
Worldwide gaming iconoclast SEGA has announced the launch of a progressive slots based casino mobile application based on its portfolio of console games.
SEGA Slots features classic SEGA games including Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Monkey Ball, Golden Axe, Shinobi, and Samba De Amigo, reimagined in Vegas-style casino games. Developed in conjunction with Fox Club Games, the SEGA Slots application is available on Google Play and iTunes.
It’s a case of history repeating itself for the company, who began operations in Japan during the 1950s as a producer of standalone slot machines before entering the arcade and console industry in the early 1980s.
Since the demise of its last console system, the SEGA Dreamcast in the early 2000s the company transitioned from becoming a console manufacturer to a third party gaming software provider.
Active since 2009, SEGA’s mobile games division in the West has its headquarters based in San Francisco with dedicated studios including Hardlight Studio in Europe and Demiurge Studios & Ignited Artists in the US.
