Gamble on survival with new 'Walking Dead' Las Vegas slot machine

Zombies are quickly invading every facet of pop-culture, and soon they'll be infecting Las Vegas.

Aristocrat, an Australian gaming company, has received the OK (licensing rights) from the giants behind AMC's The Walking Dead to go forward with a slot machine based on the show. The machine itself is pretty fancy, featuring high definition photos, video and audio from the show. It seems like a hybrid cross between a slot machine and a console game, as it takes you on a journey through the Zombocalypse and you're playing for your life.

Oh, and money.

It is certainly no coincedence that the machine set to be unleashed in a casino near you this fall, as the release is timed to coincide with Season 4 of the show.
