Netflix's Squid Game to Hit Casinos in 2024

Squid Game - Netflix drama

If ever there was a TV show made for a slots makeover, Squid Game would be high up on the list. The hit TV show, which pits contestants against each other in sadistic and brutal battles, was a massive success story over the pandemic, where Netflix benefitted from masses of increased viewers due to staying-at-home policies enacted around the world.

Now, there is news of a licensing deal between Netflix and gaming company Light & Wonder to produce a slot based on the series, and it is penned to hit casino floors at some point in 2024.

The slot in development is expected to embrace all of the crazy games from the show, including Red Light, Green Light, Tug of War, and the Glass Tile, in the form of bonus round games. There will also be a digital version, which will feature three exciting bonus rounds familiar to fans of the show, and be made available to online players.

Light & Wonder will no doubt be racing to have the slot ready in time for the new season of Squid Game, which is slated to come out next year on Netflix.

What is Light & Wonder, the Provider Behind the New Slot?

Originally called Bally Manufacturing, before passing through several rebranding exercises that saw them called Bally Gaming, Bally Technologies, and finally Scientific Game, Light & Wonder is one of the oldest in iGaming after being founded in 1973.

The company revealed their new name in February of 2022, announcing its intention to adopt a cross-platform approach strategically. Their goal is to make their popular game franchises accessible to players everywhere and at any time. This includes games in land-based casinos, online platforms, and mobile devices, catering to real money stakes and free-to-play social gaming markets.
