|Popular comic strip Dilbert, which charts the exploits of an inept office worker, will become the theme of a new slot machine being developed by Anchor Gaming. The company signed a license agreement with United Media and is projected to arrive in casinos in late 2002 pending regulatory approval.|
Dilbert is the most photocopied, downloaded, faxed and e-mailed comic strip in the world and appears in 2,000 papers in 65 countries in 19 different languages. The slot will feature various characters from the comic, and will hope to benefit from the release of ‘Another Day in Cubicle Paradise, a collection of Dilbert strips due out in spring 2002.
“Dilbert is one of the most popular and recognisable comic strips today,” said Dean Ehrlich, general manager of Anchor Games. “We believe the Dilbert ™ slot machine will be a very popular addition to casino floors and Anchor looks forward to working closely with United Media and Dilbert Creator Scott Adams in developing an exciting and fun game.”
