Microgaming To Launch Terminator 2 For Online Slots Enthusiasts
Microgaming seems to be living up to its promise of releasing a number of new titles in 2014. The casino software developer recently announced its intention to develop an online gaming version of the popular movie franchise, Terminator 2. Studiocana, the owners of the Terminator 2 movie rights, has given Microgaming the licensing rights to create an online slots game based on the blockbuster movie. Terminator 2 features Arnold Schwarzenegger in the title role, in which he portrays the hero, a stark contrast from the first move in which the Terminator was a villain. The slots game is likely to be released later this year and will be made available at Microgaming online casinos.
According to Roger Raatgever, chief executive of Microgaming, the company is excited and working hard in anticipation of the Terminator 2 online slots game. Raatgever compared the current hype similar to that leading up to the launch of the Dark Knight slots series. The game is said to feature bonus symbols based on characters from the movie. The chief executive promises the slots game to be an action-packed jaw-dropper, a true classic in the making. Further news is awaited on the exact release date.
