New releases in the slot machine world are not normally highly-anticipated, no matter how much they are hyped by games developers.

However, 2014 is going to be an exciting year for branded slots, and the Slots Temple team is actually very excited about some new slots games that have been announced.

Jurassic Park

Microgaming has recently announced that it has secured the license to create a new online slots game based on the Jurassic Park series. Action-adventure slots are becoming hugely popular in the online casino market, and Jurassic Park will present players with exciting online gaming opportunity.

The licensing deal will see Microgaming create slots game based on all three instalments of the movie series. Few details have been announced, but we do know that the bonus rounds will be determined by the analysis of dinosaur DNA! More information about the title will be revealed at the ICE Totally Gaming conference next week.

Terminator 2

Microgaming’s licensing department seems to have been very busy lately, as the company has recently secured the rights to create a new online slots game based on Terminator 2. As the most successful movie of the Terminator series, T2 will make a great theme for an online slots game.

It will be a 243-ways-to-win slots game but it will expand into a 1024-ways-to-win format in the bonus game. Aside from that, little is known about the title. More will be revealed at ICE.

24

iSoftBet has signed a deal with Fox that will see the company develop a branded slots game based on the action television show, 24. The game will feature clips and sounds from the television series, but that is all we know about the new game as of yet.

The release of the game will be the perfect press for the upcoming season of 24, which ended its eight-season run in 2010.

Sherlock Holmes

Aristocrat will also be premiering plenty of new branded slots at ICE this year. The release that we are most excited about is Aristocrat’s Sherlock Holmes progressive slots game. There are dozens of incarnations of the classic detective, but Aristocrat has not mentioned which direction the design team has decided to venture into.

So, we don’t know if the main character will more closely resemble Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock or Robert Downey Jr’s version – or if it will be an entirely different take on the series.
