Atronic is to manufacture and distribute slot machines utilising content from the successful Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis television series.

The company has signed a three-year licensing agreement with MGM Consumer Products and the first placement of the slot machines will take place later this year.

Stargate SG-1, the longest running science fiction series in American television history, aired for a remarkable 10 seasons.

The show enjoyed a milestone 200th episode and Stargate Atlantis, its spin-off series and currently in production on season five, won the People’s Choice Award for favourite sci-fi programme in 2007 and will also celebrate its 100th episode this year.

A series of machines is planned for development, including video linked, video stand-alone and reel slots.
