Unless you’ve been living under a rock, the name Ellen Degeneres isn’t unfamiliar to you. So is the Ellen DeGeneres Pokies. The comedian, writer, and former sitcom star is undoubtedly a huge success along with her beloved daytime talk and variety show, The Ellen DeGeneres show. The show is in its 12th season and has won 36 Daytime Emmys so far – and draws around 3.9 million viewers per episode. When Ellen hosted the Oscars, she drew 43.7 million viewers, the highest ratings for the awards show in 14 years. Here are a few details about Ellen DeGeneres Pokies to play.
It just so turns out that Ellen is actually just as popular among pokies players. Although pokies machines based on a daytime TV talk show may seem like a strange concept to some, the IGT officials knew it would be a slam-dunk.
Ellen Degeneres announced the release of her own pokies machine games, last year on her site. Being a huge fan of the pokies herself, “Ellen’s Roads to Riches Pokies” gives you the opportunity to play anywhere. Jam packed with brand new and exciting games, the more you play through the app, the more you unlock.
One of the Ellen’s audience members, named Lana, was chosen to come up on stage and roll down the road of riches. She rolled two dice with Ellen’s face on them. A podium that contained a mystery prize would be unlocked if the dice landed on Ellen’s face. Lana did an excellent job and found herself walking away with an incredible $10,000!
Give yourself the same chance to have just as much fun, and win a prize just as fantastic as Lana’s, by downloading the App onto your own device. Also, if you choose to log in to the app through your Facebook account, you are automatically entered for a chance to win a trip onto Ellen’s show.
