Mad Men Licensed Slots from WMS
Multiple Bonus Games Based on Characters from the Award-Winning TV Series
If you enjoyed the 1960’s advertising agency drama Mad Men, then this WMS slot is definitely for you. It is themed on the show, which won 16 Emmys and 5 Golden globes during its 8-year run. There are both jackpots and bonus games based on the show’s main characters. You can pick drinks with Roger Sterling, items with Don Draper, enjoy mega-symbols with Joan Holloway and hit falling wilds which fill the screen with extra sets of reels.
Here are the key reasons you’d be crazy not to play the Mad Men Slots:
- Fully Themed: This game will take you back to the 60’s with clips, music and character symbols.
- Jackpots: Win progressives directly from the bonus wheel.
- Themed Bonus Games: The main characters get their own bonus game, along with other non-themed features
- Big Wild Symbols: A 4×4 wild, along with the usual single ones, appear on the reels.

Mad Men Slots: Bonus Wheel
The bonus symbols show the logo of the show – a silhouette of a guy falling from a skyscraper. You need a minimum of 3 to trigger a spin of the bonus wheel.
This is a huge wheel, which stretches above you on the thin cabinet. Your view is as if looking at the outside of the wheel. On this are jackpot segments (each with a character), bonus games, win multipliers and character bonus segments. Jackpots and cash simply award those prizes, with no second feature spin.
Here are the main bonus games:
- Roger Sterling Bonus: You can enjoy a virtual drink in this feature. 4 tumblers are shown in front of the reels. You pick one, which will reveal the number of wilds to be added to the reels. These then get added with a smart animation, and you spin. You then go back to the drinks, picking again. Any extra wilds are added to the last batch for another spin. The feature ends when you hit a tumbler saying, ‘bonus completed’, or you get through 5 spins.
- Joan Holloway Bonus: This is a free spins game, where you get 5 free spins. Each one sees a huge Joan Holloway symbol added to the reels. This is 3 reels wide and 4 high – it can start on any reel – giving you the chance of some huge wins.
- Don Draper Bonus: This is another picks game. You have 5 tries to pick items associated with the main character. Each will give you a win multiplier of between 5x and 50x your total spin bet.
- Falling Wilds: This bonus sees the single set of reels transform into 4 separate sets. Many single wild symbols are added to each set (again, the animation is excellent) before you spin them all at once – giving you 4x big win opportunities.
During the non-bonus part of the game, you will see some extra-large wild symbols. These are 2x3 in size – and replace everything except the bonus symbols. Note that they do not appear during the free spins bonuses. If you are lucky enough to get these at the same time as the (stacked) regular wilds, you can expect to trigger a lot of line hits.
Mad Men Slots Setup
This themed game has 40 win-lines, crossing a regular 5x4 reel setup. You can bet from 40c, add multipliers or choose a higher denomination.
Characters from the show appear – these are the highest paying symbols. The next tier involves items from the 60’s, including a box of cigarettes and some matches. In a nice small touch, the playing card symbols all have cocktails with them.

Clips and Characters: Mad Men Slots Design
As well as the characters on the reels and the bonus wheel, you’ll see them in clips. These kick in before the different bonus games – showing quick excerpts from the show. You’ll see giant versions of those characters on the reels, dressed in iconic 1960’s fashion.
Well-chosen music adds to the theme. This is jazzy / lounge music, giving a relaxing vibe to an otherwise busy slot game. There are some excellent animations, with the orange flashes when wilds are added to the reels worth watching for.
Should You Travel Back to the Swinging 60’s and Play Mad Men Slots?
For me this is one of the better TV themed games. WMS’ Mad Men gets the balance between an interesting slot – and plenty of character involvement. There are times when the bonus wheel gives you a simple bet multiplier. These will be balanced by the multiple bonus games and shots at some big progressive jackpots. This is a slot that Mad Men fans would be crazy to miss!
