Software developer Microgaming has signed a deal with movie studio Universal Pictures to create a brand new slot based on the hit 2011 comedy film Bridesmaids.
Starring Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Melissa McCarthy and Chris ‘Moone Boy’ O’Dowd, the Bridesmaids followed the adventures of an unfortunate maid of honour tasked with getting her best friend to her dream wedding on time and in one piece.
The new video slot is set to be released in August 2015 and will feature all of the films main characters as well as some of the funniest clips from the movie itself. The 5 reel offering will come complete with a multi-level bonus feature and will be available to both desktop and mobile players.
“Bridesmaids is a comedy classic! The storyline, characters and genuinely hilarious stand-out scenes combine to make it one of the most successful comedy films of all time,” said Microgaming CEO Roger Raatgever.
“We’re thrilled to have signed another licensing agreement with Universal. Furthermore, the brand adds a completely new dimension to our branded game portfolio – we’re excited for its launch later in the year.”
Bridesmaids of course won’t the first branded offering from the Microgaming team. The developer has a long history of turning movies into top slot action. One of their most enduringly popular titles is Lara Croft: Tomb Raider which first appeared on online casino screens more than a decade ago.
“The Tomb Raider brand is instantly recognisable, so when we signed the licensing agreement back in 2004, we were incredibly excited. As the industry’s first branded slot, we knew the game would be popular; it has now become a Microgaming classic!” Raatgever added.
The 5 reel, 30 payline sequel Tomb Raider Secret of the Sword followed later, offering the same winning mix of free spins and exciting bonus features. If you love movie slots, Microgaming also offer you Jurassic Park and Terminator 2 which were released at the back end of 2014 as well as The Dark Knight which has a top progressive jackpot worth over £7.2 million!
