Game of Thrones Slot Planned
If there ever was a race to make the coolest branded and popular slot theme, it would be now. Microgaming were probably one of the first to start with the slot branding, along with rivals Playtech, to bring household names to the casino reels. When Microgaming launched their popular Lord of The Rings Slot about 5 years ago, we've since then seen many a casino game (not just slots) come alive online with well known stories and brands we love'
Everything from Monopoly, Deal or No Deal, Spider Man, Playtech’s Pink Panther and Gladiator, to NetEnt’s South Park (Funny - this is a must play for all South Park fans) to more recently NetEnt’s scary and life like Aliens slot, now comes the announcement that Microgaming plan to commission a brilliant Game of Thrones slot. Being ‘Game of Thrones’ Fans ourselves, we think that’s It’s a great idea. Why not? The online slot market is ever evolving and changing and this casino news is most welcomed. We’re always looking for new slots which are catchy and different, giving the players extra and adding thrills along the way so the Game of thrones slot will be no different. Imagine Daenerys Targaryen and Tyrion Lannister coming to life in a slot near you?
Microgamings' managed to close this rather big licensing deal with the HBO Global licensing. Being that Game of Thrones has a major online presence and millions of fans worldwide, it’s going to be a great mutual partnership.
The Director of HBO Global Licensing, Josh Goodstadt said:
We're thrilled to be working with Microgaming, a giant in its field, and we have every confidence that the show's active fan base will be very excited to find another new way to engage with the show
Microgaming CEO Roger Raatgever also helps explains this great announcement in a bit more details from Microgaming business perspective:
We are incredibly excited to have signed a licensing agreement for Game of Thrones, a highly relevant and extremely popular show,” He added, “We plan on taking all of the features of the small screen fantasy epic to create a masterpiece of a slot. This will be a fantastic addition to our branded content games portfolio. Our operators and their players have plenty to look forward to this year"
So keep your eyes and ears tuned for the new slot coming out later this year in 2014. Of course we’ll be the first to report it so don’t worry about that!
