Slot machines featuring the music and imagery of the late Whitney Houston have been unveiled at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, among other locations. The machines, developed by International Game Technology (IGT) in collaboration with The Estate of Whitney E. Houston and Primary Wave Music, play Houston's hits such as “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” and “How Will I Know.”

The standout machine stands 11 feet tall, features two 55-inch curved-edge LCD screens, and offers a top jackpot of about $500,000. The game integrates iconic Whitney Houston concert footage and images into its symbols and bonus content. A standout feature is the interactive platinum record collection-pot, where players collect symbols to trigger the Respin Bonus.

"IGT is thrilled to bring the new star-studded Whitney Houston Slots game to casino floors across the U.S.," said Nick Khin, IGT Chief Operating Officer, Gaming to WISH-TV. "Whitney Houston slots exemplifies IGT's winning formula for licensed game themes: a world-class entertainment experience combined with a precise alignment of the licensed theme fan base and the slot player demographic."

The machines are set to be introduced in 12 additional casinos nationwide in the near future.
