Microgaming has signed an agreement with HBO to develop a Game of Thrones video slot – the game will be based on the hit television series with the release later in the year.
Game of Thrones is a fantasy drama television series which is based on the fictional continent of Westeros and Essos at the end of a decade long summer. It’s based on the bestselling book series A Song of Ice and Fire that follows kings and queen, knights and renegades, liars and noblemen as they aim to sit on the Iron Throne of Westeros. The fourth television series starts in April and it’s high anticipated.
Roget Raatgever, Chief Executive Officer of Microgaming, spoke of the agreement: “We are incredibly excited to have signed a licensing agreement for Game of Thrones, a highly relevant and extremely popular show. 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!”
Game of Thrones has become one of HBO’s most popular and successful series ever with the show being watch in more than 200 countries. In 2013, it was the most watched show on the UK television channel, Sky Atlantic. Josh Goodstadt, Director of HBO Global Licensing, also commented: “We’re thrilled to be working with Microgaming, a giant in its field, and we have every confidence that the show’s active fan base will be very excited to find another new way to engage with the show.”
Microgaming has been busy signing agreements to produce new slots later this year as they have announced both Jurassic Park and Terminator 2 slots are coming this year. Yesterday, they launched the Avalon II video slot which could easily be a television series due to its superb graphics and animations.
