Microgaming has once again announced plans for a ground-breaking new online slot machine. This one will be based on the extremely popular and successful HBO television series Game of Thrones. This news came to light on February 4th and if you were lucky enough to have been able to attend this years’ ICE Totally Gaming 2014, you would have seen this new slot being previewed by Microgaming at stand number N11-120.

“We are incredibly excited to have signed a licensing agreement for Game of Thrones, a highly relevant and extremely popular show,” said the Microgaming CEO, Roger Raatgever. “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,” added the CEO.

The television show which this new slot is based on is one of the highest ranked shows of all time and the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) has it rated at 9.5 starts (at the time of writing). The shows stars a host of actors who are becoming familiar to us all such as Peter Dinklage who plays Tyrion Lannister and Lena Headey who plays his evil sibling, Cersei Lannister. The show is now in its fourth season and has a massive cult following.

Microgaming managed to clinch a licensing deal with HBO Global Licensing, which is the very latest licensing agreement that Microgaming has managed to obtain. Some of the other great branded slots which Microgaming has also been given the proverbial green light to develop will include titles such as Terminator 2: Judgment Day and also several Jurassic Park themed slots which will be based on the dinosaur movie trilogy franchise.

The Director of HBO Global Licensing, Josh Goodstadt, said, “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. 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.”

Microgaming is certainly carving a niche in the market for branded slots, just like Playtech has managed to achieve with its impressive range of Marvel comic book slots such as Spiderman: Attack of the Green Goblin, Iron Man (1, 2 and 3), Wolverine, The Incredible Hulk, The Avengers and Blade, but also other great branded titles such as Gladiator, Rocky, Marilyn Monroe, Pink Panther, Six Million Dollar Man and Cowboys & Aliens.

Microgaming is still lagging behind Playtech in terms of quantity when it comes to branded slots and their main ones include The Osbournes, Battlestar Galactica, Playboy, Tomb Raider (1 and 2), The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. One thing that is certain is that Microgaming fans now have plenty to look forward to in 2014.
