Coming soon, Phantom of the Opera
Microgaming Announces New Phantom of the Opera Slot
Microgaming, is pulling yet another ace from its sleeve with the current development of a truly thrilling and chilling online slots game. The software giant has partnered up with “The Really Useful Group” and will see Microgaming developing an online slot based on the 2004 Andrew Lloyd Webber movie, The Phantom of the Opera.
The film is an on-screen adaptation of the spine-tingling 1986 musical, also by Webber, which remains one of the most successful musicals ever performed on stage, across 35 different countries and 166 cities worldwide. The movie adaptation was successful in its own right, raking in over $154 million.
Phantom of the Opera slots, on release later this year, will offer a fully immersive experience, featuring original footage from the film, as well as musical accompaniment and main characters. It will try to engage audiences with the tale of the “Phantom” who haunts the halls of the Paris Opera House.
To get everyone in the right mood for their new game, Microgaming prepared the Phantom of the Opera bar at this year’s ICE at London’s ExCel. Attendees had an opportunity to experience the world of the possibly greatest and spookiest musical of all times first-hand, with the bar being fully adorned to reflect the occasion. There were original movie props, extravagant chandeliers, and much more, ensuring full engagement with an unforgettable introduction to their slots game.
We can expect Phantom of the Opera to be the next, in a long line of Microgaming’s astonishing titles, appealing especially to those with a passion for musicals, phantoms and seeking a novel gaming experience.
