In Solitaire Cruise, the digital Dolly Parton plays an important role as she welcomes passengers aboard and leads a special tutorial on how to play the game. Dolly encourages players to join many new events, from participating in cooking classes to securing season passes. Players will follow an exciting storyline full of hilarious situations and ultimately discover why Dolly is cruising along with players -- her final destination is the Country Music Festival.
“We were thrilled to bring Dolly Parton – a global icon whose influence continues to be felt and recognized in the entertainment industry and beyond – aboard Solitaire Cruise,” said Tatyana Zvanskaya, Senior Marketing Producer at Belka Games. “In the game, Dolly is full of surprises to keep players engaged and on their toes in a once in a lifetime cruise adventure.”
Dolly Parton is one of the most honored and revered female country singer-songwriters of all time. Achieving 25 RIAA-certified gold, platinum, and multi-platinum awards, she has had 26 songs reach #1 on the Billboard country charts – a record for a female artist. Dolly has also garnered 10 Grammy Awards and 51 nominations, including the Lifetime Achievement Award and a 2020 win with KING & COUNTRY for their collaboration on "God Only Knows"; 10 Country Music Association Awards, including Entertainer of the Year; five Academy of Country Music Awards, also including a nod for Entertainer of the Year; four People’s Choice Awards; and three American Music Awards.
“Who says playing games takes at least two people? Not me! My new appearance in the Solitaire Cruise game is a terrific way to test your skills at a classic game we all love. So play a round or two today, and good luck!” said Dolly Parton.
Launched in October 2020, Solitaire Cruise has captivated players from around the world with its unique twist on the classic card game. Players enjoy puzzles, tournaments, and exclusive rewards while escaping on an around-the-world vacation. Dolly’s guest appearance in the game will be available now through April 2022.
