Microgaming Releases New Highlander Slot

Fans of the film already generating a lot of buzz, with expectations high that this cult classic will translate beautifully to the virtual reels.

Fans of the film already generating a lot of buzz, with expectations high that this cult classic will translate beautifully to the virtual reels.

Creative Licensing Company Continues Online Collaboration

The rights for the film are currently held by the Creative Licensing Company. The company owns the rights to many popular cult classic films, including the Rambo, Terminator, and Basic Instinct franchises. In recent years, it has shown itself more than willing to leverage those rights through virtual slot machines when it can find the right company to do so.

Few would agree Microgaming is not one of the most respected names in online casino gaming, giving Creative Licensing peace of mind that its IP would be getting the kind of treatment it deserves:

“Many of the iconic characters from classic “Highlander” are featured in the slot, including Christopher Lambert as Connor MacLeod, Roxanne Hart as Brenda Wyatt and Clancy Brown as The Kurgan. We think fans are really going to enjoy revisiting this epic story, and seeing their favourite heroes and villains in game format,” said Creative Licensing’s Stephanie Kupperman.

Microgaming Lands Another Great Title

On Microgaming’s end, the decision to turn Highlander into its latest title was a bit of a no-brainer. Not only does it come with a loyal fan following already built in, but it has incredible characters, a compelling setting, as well as a great musical score. In other words, everything that makes an online slots title awesome:

“Highlander is seen as one of the great cult hits of the 80s. With its action-packed storyline and hefty rock inspired composition, it is a fantastic brand for an online slot. The game studio is busy completing the slot that captures all of the movie magic,”said David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming, “The game’s features will incorporate the historical Scottish Highlands and gritty New York City, with a classic movie poster art style and blistering guitar tracks.” 

The Highlander slot is expected to live on December 6th.
