Tarzan To Swing Into Slot Action With Microgaming


31 Jul 2016

Microgaming is well-known for its impressive selection of branded slots and a recent agreement means that portfolio is to be strengthened even further later this year.

Earlier this week Microgaming announced that they have secured exclusive licensing rights to develop a Tarzan branded slot.

The game is set to be available later this year and will feature the main character and Jane as well as a number of their jungle friends.

This won’t be the first slot to have been created, in 2009 bwin.party launched their game. However, we couldn’t find the game available at Party Casino now and would presume the license has ended.

The Legend Of Tarzan

On 6th July The Legend of Tarzan was released in the UK so the announcement of the deal is quite timely for Microgaming.

The film itself was directed by the same people behind Harry Potter And The Deathly Gallows and has stars such as Samuel L. Jackson, Jim Broadbent and Margot Robbie. Alexander Skarsgard plays Tarzan.

The story follows Tarzan as he is invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament.

Tarzan is a recognized all around the world and we’re delighted to be able to launch a slot featuring timeless characters. Our games team are excited about working with a new brand to create a slot that embraces and celebrates Tarzan.

The game is currently ready as a prototype and I can honestly say, it will not disappoint fans of Tarzan. Players and operators can expect to see the game in the winter.

The president of Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc, the company who owns the rights to the literaty works of the author, added

Microgaming is a quality company with extensive experience in developing slot games and we couldn’t be more pleased to have licensed Tarzan to them.

We are assured that they will create and develop a game that will attract many fans and players from across the globe.
