The Island Un-Dead Social Media Promotion

The Walking Dead ™have made their way to the Island! Thanks to leading games and systems supplier Aristocrat Technologies, zombies have begun taking over casinos across the country in its new slot game, The Walking Dead™. Based on AMC’s series of the same name, The Walking Dead™ slot game is the only slot game where it pays to play dead!

AT-13-008743_TWD-300x250-WebBanner_REDTo celebrate the arrival of The Walking Dead™ slot game (we’ll be blogging about the game itself in more detail next week) the Island Resort & Casino is proud to announce the launch of the “Island Un-Dead” social media promotion where one of our socialites will be named as “Patient Zero” and awarded not only bragging rights, but a Walking Dead™ slot game prize package as well!

The Zombie Apocalypse Has Arrived

If you’ve watched the show (or any zombie flick for that matter) than you know that the chances of any human surviving the zombie apocalypse is slim to none… On the other hand… the chance of a zombie surviving the zombie apocalypse is what we in the gaming industry like to call “a sure bet”.

Because we care about our “socialites” and really want to see them survive the zombie apocalypse that is currently sweeping casinos nationwide, we are asking you, our social media fans to “zombify” yourselves and become a member of the “Island Un-Dead”! Remember, strength in numbers is the key here!

Because the zombie apocalypse doesn’t discriminate… neither will we! To guarantee the survival of as many of our “socialites” as possible, we will be running this promotion through the following social media platforms:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Instagram

To do this, simply download any mobile application that will allow you “zombify” a photo of yourself.  Once you have an app downloaded, snap a selfie and let the transformation begin! Once you’re happy with the “new you” save your photo to your mobile device and prepare to join the “Island Un-Dead”!
