MICROGAMING SIGNS LICENSING DEAL FOR HALLOWEEN®
Added: August 2, 2017
It recently came to light that multi-award-winning online casino software provider Microgaming has signed a new licensing deal through Compass International Pictures, brokered by Creative Licensing Corporation, to develop the new Halloween® online pokie and that this game should arrive in Australian online casinos before Halloween 2017.
This will increase Microgaming’s impressive portfolio of branded online pokies and it will join other big named games such as Terminator 2, Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, Game of Thrones, Bridesmaids, Battlestar Galactica, Tarzan and Tomb Raider. You will soon be able to enjoy playing on the new Halloween pokie at top-rated Aussie online casinos such as Casino Mate, 7 Sultans Casino, Jackpot City Casino, Betway Casino, Gaming Club Casino and Spin Palace Casino.
This new Horror themed pokie is based on the iconic slasher movie from 1978 which starred Donald Pleasence and Jamie Lee Curtis in her film debut. The movie was directed and scored by John Carpenter and co-written with producer Debra Hill and although it was produced on a small budget of $300,000, it managed to gross $47 million at the box office in the US and $23 million internationally, bringing in an impressive $70 million worldwide.
The SVP of Compass, Ryan Freimann, recently commented on this upcoming pokie and collaboration with Microgaming, saying, “We are excited to team up with Creative Licensing and Microgaming to bring Michael Myers and Halloween home to all of our loyal fans in the best possible ways through top licensees who create products we feel honour the character, film, and franchise.”
You will be able to play on the new Halloween pokie as soon as it arrives either in the real money mode or in the free play demo mode and it will be launched simultaneously across Microgaming’s Flash, download, mobile and Quickfire platforms. The game will feature all of the characters from the movie and also the renowned soundtrack.
The Games Publisher at Microgaming, David Reynolds, also commented on this currently unreleased pokie, saying, “Halloween is a true classic and set the standard for modern horror films. It was immeasurably influential in the slasher genre of movies, so it is great to be working with such an iconic and respected brand.”
He then finished by saying, “Embracing all the elements of what made the movie such a success, our games team are busy developing a slot for release later in the year.” We managed to obtain all of these comments directly from a recent Microgaming press release.
