Microgaming to Launch New Highlander Slots
Microgaming has announced its plans to release an online slot based on the cult classic film, Highlander.
Microgaming leads the way when it comes to branded online slots design. Over the years, the company has created countless games on popular movies, television shows and video games – and will be adding to its collection with the launch of a new slot based on the original Highlander film.
Highlander was released in 1986, and gained immense success as one of the most iconic modern fantasy films. It has become a cult classic, and has spawned four sequels, a television series and several other spin-offs. This will be the first time that Highlander has inspired any game, especially a slots title.
“Highlander is seen as one of the great cult hits of the 80s. With its action-packed storyline and hefty rock inspired composition, it is a fantastic brand for an online slot,” David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming. “The game studio is busy completing the slot that captures all of the movie magic. The game’s features will incorporate the historical Scottish Highlands and gritty New York City, with a classic movie poster art style and blistering guitar tracks.”
Very few details have been released about the game as of yet. What we do know right now is that Microgaming’s new Highlander online slot will be a 243 Ways to Win game, and that it will be available at online casinos like VideoSlots on December 6th.
“We think fans are really going to enjoy revisiting this epic story, and seeing their favourite heroes and villains in game format,” says Stephanie Kupperman at Creative Licensing.
In the meantime, you have plenty of options when it comes to branded slots from Microgaming. Jurassic World was only recently released at online casinos, and it is a huge success, and Halloween is being rolled at gaming sites this month. Both games exemplify Microgaming’s ability to successful adapt an establish brand into an engaging slot, and they are certainly worth a spin.
