Editor’s Dispatch: Feeling Lucky

By Tea Fougner

If anyone ever tells you that working at King Features is all fun and games, well… It sort of is.

That’s not to say we don’t take our fun and games very seriously.  In addition to the awesome games available here on Comics Kingdom, our characters have been popping up a ton lately in casinos and online– if you enjoy slot machines, you might want to check out some of these new spins on an old favorite:

For our UK readers, you could be the Ghost Who Walks Away with Lots of Cash if you play the Aristocrat Phantom game:


And you could be swimming in spinach if you take a whirl on these amazing Popeye slots from Storm Games, also available in the UK:



Here in the US, there are three Betty Boop slot machines from Bally currently on casino floors: Betty Boop’s World Tour, Betty Boop’s Love Meter, and Betty Boop’s Fortune Teller.

(You can also play with Hagar, Popeye, Blondie, and Beetle Bailey at Borgata, Mohegan Sun, Foxwoods, Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida, and Parx Casino courtesy Lightning Gaming)

If you prefer to play online, you can check out the Popeye games on Dragonplay’s Slot City Casino:

The Betty Boop game from Ludia, available on mobile:

And you can play with Blondie and Beetle Bailey on Zynga’s Hit it Rich Casino:

Flash Gordon, Sally Forth, Hagar the Horrible, and The Phantom will be coming out with Zynga soon!

Aww, I guess people just feel lucky around our comics.

It’s always fun to see our favorite characters in unexpected places– be on the lookout for new games in the future. If you could have one game based on a Comics Kindom cartoon character, what would you choose?
