The Clash of TV and Gaming – Most Popular TV Shows Turned Online Pokies

Must Read

Few things get as many heads turning as sensational TV shows. Almost all of us have at least one favourite show – although there are several most likely – that we love to quote, enthuse or rant about, and binge-watch whenever we get the time.

On the other hand, online pokies, as the most famous category of real money casino games, populate gambling websites by the thousands, and each is better than the previous one. A rising genre of online slots that’s been getting a lot of attention lately is branded slots or online pokies made after the most popular music bands, movies, and TV shows.

Let’s see which TV shows would have entered the Online Slot Hall of Fame, if such a thing existed.

The Best Branded TV Show Pokies

When it comes to branded pokies, the players’ options are virtually limitless. Sure, there is a finite number of branded games, but the category is so popular that companies keep expanding it with new releases every month.

Here are the five most popular branded online slots based on iconic TV shows.

  • Game of Thrones
  • Narcos
  • Ricky and Morty Megaways
  • Peaky Blinders
  • Joe Exotic

Game of Thrones

The Mother of Dragon remains very much alive in the Game of Thrones online slot made by Microgaming. This company is one of the largest online slot companies in the entire industry, and its experience extends over decades of work. The slot in question was announced in 2014, just when the fourth season of the show was airing on HBO.

The slot has many recognizable slot features often seen in Microgaming releases – free spins, wilds, and scatters included. Arguably the best part of the game is the four-option Free Spins mode where players pick between four different Free Spins options. Some have more spins but fewer features, while others offer fewer spins but a true bonanza of modifiers that affect the gameplay.


There’s no rest for the wicked, especially in the NetEnt online slot Narcos. The video pokie slot shares the name with the hit Netflix series about the kingpin Pablo Escobar and his Medellin cartel. The show proved to be a raging success across the globe, mostly because it doesn’t shy away from showing the true horrors of cartel wars in Mexico and Colombia. The series graced the screens for two seasons before Netflix decided to upgrade it with a Narcos: Mexico sequel.

The pokie slot, however, focuses on the Colombian story mostly. Fan-favourite characters appear in the game, along with a flurry of features that include three types of wilds, multipliers, and free spins. Fans of true crime documentaries and the Narcos show should give it a try.

Ricky and Morty Megaways

Pickle Rick! The crazy scientist and his anxiety-ridden grandson/sidekick are back again in the Ricky and Morty Megaways slot made by Blueprint Gaming. The action duo is ready to go on new adventures, and all players need to do to join them is open the Blueprint slot. That’s it, no other questions asked.

Inside the game, players are welcomed into one version of Rick’s reality where Megaways generate massive winning lines and win. The game uses the Megaways mechanic that Blueprint licences from Big Time Gaming. It’s a game with multiple boosters, great payout potential, and solid technicalities making it a perfect slot for Rick and Morty fans. Also, did we mention Pickle Rick Free Spins boosted with an Unlimited Multiplier?

Peaky Blinders 

We are days away from finally seeing the sixth and final season of the Peaky Blinders show. The Shelby family, one of the ruling crime families from Birmingham, has millions of fans, and they all have high expectations from the new season. As we mentally prepare to say goodbye to Tommy, Arthur, and their companions, fans of online pokies have found a way to cope with Shelby’s family withdrawals – playing Peaky Blinders slots online.

At the moment, the Pragmatic Play Peaky Blinders online slot is a work of art that’s soon going to be joined by a sequel. The Peaky Blinders 2 slot is in the making, and it seems it will arrive just in time with the end of the final season. For all those who cannot bear to part with the Shelby gang, these pokies will be a perfect way to keep them around.

Joe Exotic

The pandemic forced the world to shut down, and so many of us were stuck at home. The whole year of 2020 – and 2021, to an extent – was just one long session of Netflix & chill, and guess what became everybody’s obsession? Tiger King. 

The story of Joe Exotic, his big wild cats, and archnemesis Carole Baskin was truly a wild one – and it’s not a surprise that many works have gotten a reference of the documentary within the first month of its release. Red Tiger, one of the biggest gaming companies in the world, launched a new slot titled Joe Exotic which focuses mostly on the eccentric zoo owner. The exuberant pokie slot boasts an equally wild motto: “Get insane, get paid”. No other explanation is necessary, the story pretty much writes itself.
