In the land based casino world, Aristocrat has previously brought the Tarzan theme to players but when it comes to online gambling, Microgaming is king having just obtained the rights to the Tarzan™ name for the development of online Slot Games!
Fresh off of a new licensing agreement with Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc., brokered by Creative Licensing Corporation, the software giant can get to work on some new branded games.
The tale of Tarzan dates back to 1912 and comes from the mind of Edgar Rice Burroughs, the author of Tarzan of the Apes. Microgaming’s branded Slot will become available sometime later this year across desktop and mobile formats. The reels will see Tarzan infamously yelling and swinging by along with Jane, Archimedes and a few others.
Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, said, “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. 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.”
James Sullos, President of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., 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.”
