Take a look at these seven animated badges that Pogo’s graphic artists have just created:
If these badges look familiar to you, it’s because they are black-and-white versions of the Spooky Slots Limited Edition badges from previous years, with a “Legendary Badge” banner, and with updated animated chat icons. Take a trip down memory lane: 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, and 2008.
So, what could “Legendary” possibly mean? Well, let’s look at the facts:
Spooky Slots is a Java game. While players currently have many options for accessing Java games now (and players will most likely still have many options when or if Spooky Slots is available in September/October of this year), in the future their choices will be limited. Pogo_Bret wrote in a comment on a June 2015 Letters to the Editor, “We currently do not have plans to convert Spooky Slots. We are looking into making some more Halloween game skins for other games, but we cannot announce anything specific yet, since we are still only planning these things.”
These badges appear to be an indication Pogo will be bringing Spooky Slots back again this year, but as Bret said in June they will not be converting it to Flash. (Sorry Chrome users, you’ll need either the workaround or, if the workaround no longer works by then, a Java-compatible browser.) It’s also likely they will not be adding new ranks, since their focus is not on Java games at this point. Beyond that, right now, only Pogo knows what role these badges will play in our Halloween fun.
