Monday January 20,2014 : MICROGAMING IN LICENSE AGREEMENT WITH TERMINATOR 2 BRAND
New slot will be themed on iconic movie featuring Arnold Schwartzenneger
Microgaming is developing a new online slot based on the blockbuster movie Terminator 2: Judgement Day following a licensing agreement with Studiocanal S.A.
The 1991 movie release, which was a follow-on to the original The Terminator, extensively utilised computer-generated imagery (CGI) giving movie-goers never before seen visual effects and the like. The film won numerous industry awards for sound and visual effects.
The Terminator 2 online slot will be a 243 ways-to-win game which expands to 1,024 ways-to-win during the free spins feature, triggered by three or more Time Travel Orb symbols. The iconic T800 and T1000 will offer additional winning opportunities.
“We are incredibly excited to be developing an online slot around the Terminator 2 movie – it is a brand which has mass appeal and lends itself perfectly to the world of online gaming," said Roger Raatgever, chief executive officer of Microgaming. "As explosive as the film, we are in the process of creating an action-packed, jaw-dropping slot; it’s a classic in the making!”
Rand Marlis, president of Creative Licensing Corporation, which represents Studiocanal for Terminator 2 licensing, said: “Microgaming has vast experience in licensing brands and we have every confidence that the Terminator 2 online slot will be a massive success. Working with Microgaming is a real pleasure and we look forward to a long-lasting and successful relationship.”
Microgaming will be previewing the Terminator 2 online slot at the ICE Totally Gaming Exhibition which is due to be held in London from 4th to 6th February 2014.
