News from the Microgaming press offices has been released thick and fast the last over the last month with multiple heavyweight licensing deals being signed with massive movie franchises to produce themed slots based on blockbuster movie titles like Jurassic Park and Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
The most recent announcement from Microgaming is however probably the most exciting by far and that is the deal with HBO Global Licensing to produce a slot based on the multi-award winning fantasy TV series, Game of Thrones.
As fans of the show will know, this TV series has an intricate plot with fantastical themes that keep you riveted and on the edge of your seat with every episode. Microgaming plans to showcase these themes in what is predicted to be one of the most epic online slots of 2014.
CEO of Microgaming Roger Raatgever commented that Microgaming is incredibly excited to have signed the licensing agreement for Game of Thrones and plans to take all of the features of the small screen fantasy epic to create a masterpiece slot. He added that the Game of Thrones Slot would be a fantastic addition to the company's branded content games portfolio and that casino operators and players alike had a great deal to look forward to this year.
The Game of Thrones TV series which debuted on HBO in 2011 and is soon to kick off its fourth season is based on the best-selling book "A Song of Ice and Fire" written by George R.R Martin. The book is a complex fantasy thriller which follows the various stories for kings and queens, knights and renegades, noblemen and liars who vie for power and the prize of being the one to occupy the illustrious Iron Throne of Westeros.
The Television series is one of HBO's most popular of all time, with an international fan base in more than 200 markets across the world. Last year it was the most watched show in the UK.
Director of HBO Global Licensing Josh Goodstadt commented that Game of Thrones enjoys a huge global presence online and partnering with Microgaming would extend the show's reach into an entirely new realm. He added that the group was thrilled to be working with an industry leading giant like Microgaming and have every confidence that the shows active fan base would be ecstatic at the opportunity to engage with the show in another way.
The pressure is on for Microgaming to deliver because this is one slot title that has endless possibilities at hand and if the TV series and Microgaming's previous movie themed slots are anything to go by, it will certainly be a visual masterpiece.
