It has been an exciting couple of weeks for Microgaming fans. It started on January 20th when they announced that they would be developing a Terminator 2 themed online pokie after obtaining a licensing agreement with Studiocanal S.V. This software giant then went on to announce that it had obtained a license with Universal Partnerships & Licensing to develop three new Jurassic Park themed slots.
Then, as recently as February 4th, Microgaming announced that it would be developing an online slot machine based on the epic HBO TV series, Game of Thrones. “We are incredibly excited to have signed a licensing agreement for Game of Thrones, a highly relevant and extremely popular show,” said Roger Raatgever, the Microgaming CEO.
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!” HBO has developed several classic TV series such as Sex and the City®, The Sopranos®, Entourage® and True Blood®.
Fans will have to wait until the summer of 2014 for any of these new branded pokies to arrive though and as soon as they are launched they should quickly find their way into most of our highly recommended New Zealand player online casinos (all of which are powered by Microgaming). Some of these great online casinos which are likely to add these new pokies will include Jackpot City Casino, Platinum Play Casino, Gaming Club Casino, Spin Palace Casino, River Belle Casino and Royal Vegas Casino.
If you already have an account with either of these casinos, you might want to log in now and check out Microgaming’s very latest pokie, Avalon 2: The Quest for the Grail, which officially launched on February 5th. This new slot has 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin. Players can enjoy 8 different bonus rounds with plenty of exciting special features and 3D rendered graphics.
“Avalon has been a top-performing game for us since its launch; the slot has a huge and very loyal fan base,” said Raatgever. He then went on to say, “At Microgaming we’re very proud of the mix we have in our portfolio of licensed brands including The Dark Knight Rises™ and Playboy™, and iconic brands that we have created ourselves, such as Thunderstruck and Avalon. Avalon II takes the Avalon brand to a whole new level; we are delighted with the end product; it really is a work of art.”
