‘Me Tarzan, you Jane.’ Those famous words will soon come to life across the reels of a brand new slot offering from Microgaming, as the company has just obtained exclusive rights to develop the slot. This legendary character was first seen in the Edgar Rice Burroughs novel, Tarzan of the Apes, published in 1912. Who knew that over 100 years later, the novel’s main character would become the most filmed character in film history?
In fact, the latest, Legend of Tarzan film, has just hit theaters worldwide, featuring Alexander Skarsgard as Tarzan, and a number of other A-list actors in other key roles.
The Isle of Man-based supplier is expected to release the game sometime later this year. Its newest slot will incorporate all the necessary elements to bring the theme to life, including an iconic soundtrack, key characters such as Tarzan & Jane, of course, plus Archimedes, and many of his other friends. It will be accessible on both desktop and mobile devices.
Microgaming CEO, Roger Raatgever, commented, “Tarzan is recognised the world over, so we’re excited to be launching a slot hosted by this timeless character. Our highly talented games team relish working with a new brand, to build a game that celebrates and embraces it.”
Raatgever continued, “Having seen the game in prototype, I can honestly say the online slot will not disappoint Tarzan fans; operators and their players can look forward to the game’s release this winter.”
President of Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc., James Sullos, added “We could not be more pleased to license Tarzan and his friends to such a quality company as Microgaming. Their extensive experience in developing online slot games assures us they will build a game that will attract many fans and players to the game from around the globe.”
