“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Slots Hit Borgata’s Casino Floor

ellen-slotsThrough the long ages of daytime TV (you know, starting back in, like, the 50s) there have been a handful of shows that break through to become more than just hits, but become full-blown pop culture phenomenon.

Stuff like “Howdy Doody,” “General Hospital,” “People’s Court” and “The Oprah Winfrey Show” for example.

For our age, however, the daytime TV phenomena is “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

Some of us (read Old People) can remember when DeGeneres was just a simple stand-up comic who later had her own sitcom in the 90s. But it was in 2003, when she launched her daytime show that DeGeneres passed into the pop culture phenomena category.

That’s 11 years of Emmy awards, dancing and singing with her live-studio audience and her famous giveaways. And let’s not forget how internet savvy she is, as she’s being credited with the most retweeted tweet of the year with the superstar packed selfie she tweeted when she hosted the Oscars.

So what could be the next world left for DeGeneres to conquer?

Slot machines, of course. Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa proudly announces the addition of two new “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” themed slot machines on our casino floor. After all, a show famed for giveaways makes a perfect slot machine theme.

The two new slots are The Ellen DeGeneres ShowFeaturing Ellen’s Dance Party Video Slots and The Ellen DeGeneres Show™ Featuring 12 Days of Giveaways Video Slots from IGT games.

“I’m so excited to have my very own line of slot machines,” DeGeneres says of her new slots. “People are gonna have the chance to play really fun games, have their own mini dance parties and win actual cold, hard cash. I mean, honestly, what more do you want from me?”
