Microgaming, an industry award winning online casino software provider, has announced that it will be developing a brand new Game of Thrones themed online slot machine and this new slot will be released at some point later on this year.

Microgaming already got the online gambling community excited a few weeks back when it announced that it would be developing several brand new slots including some Jurassic Park themed slots and a new Terminator 2: Judgment Day themed slot. They failed to announce at the time that they had also been developing a Game of Thrones themed slot machine.

Game of Thrones was kept a closely guarded secret until it was officially previewed along with all of these other ones that were just mentioned at this years’ ICE Totally Gaming event. This annual was held at London’s ExCel centre towards the very beginning of February. This means that players can now look forward to plenty of epic titles from Microgaming over the coming months. These new slots will end up on Microgaming’s flash and download platforms and they will more than likely be available in the real cash mode and in the free play mode when they finally arrive.

Microgaming obtained a licensing agreement with Studiocanal S.A to develop the Terminator 2 slot and they obtained similar rights but with Universal Partnership & Licensing for the Jurassic Park themed slots. For the Game of Thrones slot, Microgaming secured the necessary licensing agreement with HBO Global Licensing.

Speaking about this currently unreleased slot from HBO Global Licensing was the Director, Josh Goodstadt, “Game of Thrones has a huge global presence online, and our partnership with Microgaming will extend the show’s reach into a completely new realm.” He also then added, “We’re thrilled to be working with Microgaming, a giant in its field, and we have every confidence that the show’s active fan base will be very excited to find another new way to engage with the show.”

The CEO of Microgaming, Roger Raatgever, said “We are incredibly excited to have signed a licensing agreement for Game of Thrones, a highly relevant and extremely popular show.” He continued, “We plan on taking all of the features of the small screen fantasy epic to create a masterpiece of a slot. This will be a fantastic addition to our branded content games portfolio. Our operators and their players have plenty to look forward to this year.” We managed to obtain these words from the official Microgaming website.

HBO is famous for developing shows such as Sex and the City, The Sopranos, True Blood and Entourage, but Game of Thrones ranks even higher than these ones.  Although at the time of writing it is unclear exactly when these new branded slots will arrive, players shouldn’t have to wait too long. Just keep checking back with us on a regular basis and as soon as we hear anything, we will do our best to let you know.
