The gaming supplier is set to further strengthen its branded slots portfolio after securing exclusive licensing rights to develop a Tarzan branded game.
UK.- Microgaming’s Tarzan online slot will launch later this year on desktop and mobile, featuring the hero alongside Jane, Archimedes and a number of his jungle friends, as well as distinctive images and soundtrack. With the new deal, Microgaming received the exclusive rights to the Tarzan name for an online slot. The name is connected to the fictional character created by Edgar Rice Burroughs in a novel Tarzan of the Apes, published back in 1912.
Since his first introduction to the public, Tarzan has been entertaining people all around the world for over a century. He is the most filmed figure in motion picture industry and has been portrayed by 29 different actors since 1918. The jungle character has also appeared in many TV series, two Broadway stage productions, comic strips and many more.
Microgaming CEO, Roger Raatgever, said: “Tarzan is recognised all over the world, so we’re excited to be launching a slot hosted by this timeless character. Our highly talented games team relish working with a new brand, to build a game that celebrates and embraces it. Having seen the game in prototype, I can honestly say the online slot will not disappoint Tarzan fans. Operators and their players can look forward to the game’s release this winter.”
James Sullos, president of Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc, said that they’re very pleased to license Tarzan and his friends to such a quality company as Microgaming. “Their extensive experience in developing online slot games assures us they will build a game that will attract many fans and players to the game from around the globe,” he added.
