Microgaming Announces Plans for Terminator 2 Slot
Posted On: Jan. 22, 2014
Just one month after Microgaming announced that it would be unveiling a new online slot called Avalon II: The Quest For The Grail, the company announced that it has also been given permission to develop another ground breaking new online slot called Terminator 2. Microgaming has successfully managed to obtain a licensing agreement with Studiocanal S.A.
This new slot will be based on the 1991 Hollywood blockbuster movie of the same name which starred Edward Furlong and Arnold Schwarzenegger and Microgaming plans to preview this currently unreleased online slot between February 4th and 6th, at stand number N11-120 at this year's ICE Totally Gaming event. This annual event will take place at London's ExCel centre.
"Microgaming has vast experience in licensing brands and we have every confidence that the Terminator 2 online slot will be a massive success. Working with Microgaming is a real pleasure and we look forward to a long-lasting and successful relationship," said the president of Creative Licensing Corporation (which represents Studiocanal for Terminator 2 licensing), Rand Marlis.
Microgaming hopes to release the new Terminator 2 online slot at some point in the summer of 2014. It will have 5 reels and 243 ways to win, but during the Free Spins Bonus Round this number will increase to 1,024 ways to win. Free Spins will automatically trigger when three of the Time Travel Orb Scatter Symbols appear in view and both the T800 Symbols and the T1000 symbols can also help boost your winnings.
The CEO of Microgaming, Roger Raatgever, said "We are incredibly excited to be developing an online slot around the Terminator 2 movie – it is a brand which has mass appeal and lends itself perfectly to the world of online gaming. As explosive as the film, we are in the process of creating an action-packed, jaw-dropping slot; it's a classic in the making!"
Terminator 2: Judgement Day is still one of the highest grossing films of all time and it remains at number 35 in Empire's 'The 500 Greatest Movies of All Time'. It also features in the American Film Institutes' Top Ten science fiction films.
This new T2 online slot looks like it will be equally as brilliant as The Dark Knight Rises online slot, if not better. The Dark Knight Rises slot is a branded DC Entertainment slot from Microgaming and it is possibly their most famous title to date. This sequel slot was launched as recently as August 2013. Players can now find The Dark Knight Rises online slot machine in approximately 80 different Microgaming powered online casinos.
