The Lord of the Apes will soon swing on to gambling sites worldwide when Microgaming releases a Tarzan themed slot game called Tarzan: Lord of the Jungle. The leading online gaming software company has recently bought the rights to the iconic story created by Edgar Rice Burroughs in 1912 and built upon by many other people ever since. The game will most likely feature all the important characters from the jungle-based story including and definitely needless to say, Tarzan himself!
Creative Licensing Corporation brokered the license agreement between Microgaming and Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc. to develop this long awaited online slot game. The story that has enthralled generations of young people will very likely be available later on in the year. Microgaming has indicated that the Tarzan game will be available for mobile as well as desktop.
As mentioned earlier, the game will feature a number of characters from the Tarzan story including Jane and Archimedes. The sound track of the game will also feature Tarzan’s bloodcurdling yell. It is too early to say what special features the game will possess, but Microgaming generally does not disappoint on this count.
Tarzan is a very popular character with filmmakers and has appeared in more films than any other fictional character. As a matter of fact, the latest film made around this character was released a few days ago. The Legend of Tarzan was released on 1 July in the United States.
Starring Alexander Skarsgård as Tarzan in addition to Hollywood icons such as Samuel L Jackson, Djimon Hounsou, Margot Robbie, Jim Broadbent and Christoph Waltz, this movie will inspire a new generation of fans. Not to mention that it will set the expectations for the new slot that has yet to be released.
However, the movie received mixed reviews. It will be interesting to see how this will effect the release of the slot game later on in the year. Nevertheless, the new game will definitely benefit from the free publicity that the movie gives it considering that there is a lot of anticipation for it.
Microgaming CEO, Roger Raatgever said that the company was thrilled to get the opportunity to work on the Tarzan story since this character is loved all over the world. He also said that game development team has plenty of excellent ideas for the new game and are eager to create an exciting game that is as true to the brand as possible. Raatgever indicated that the game was already on the drawing boards with a prototype completed, but that it would only be available for release later in the year.
Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc President James Sullos was equally enthusiastic about the tie up with Microgaming. He said that this slot developer was the right company to build this story into a game that players would enjoy. After all, the company has immense experience in creating web based slot games and any game that it makes will certainly be able to grab the attention of players from all over the world.
