Terminator 2 Online Slots Microgaming

Terminator 2: Judgment Day featured an all-star Hollywood cast and won four Academy Awards by setting new standards in visual and sound effects. With worldwide box office sales of over $500 million, it is one of the highest grossing films of all time!

Microgaming has been working energetically to develop an online slot that takes all the elements of what made the film a success and deliver it to the world of online gaming. This cutting-edge game includes all of the lead actors, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton and Robert Patrick. The use of original film footage, accompanied by the mesmerising original soundtrack, ensures an action-packed player experience with many industry first game features.

When a player hits a five-of-a-kind they are rewarded not only with a big payout, but with memorable clips from the film. Look out for the T-800 Vision bonus feature, triggered at random during any non-winning spin, which positions the player experience through the eyes of the Terminator as he scans for targets to award higher wins. The best part about this mode is that only a single scatter symbol is required to activate the free spins feature, which sees the slot expand from a 243 ways to 1,024 ways game. This will be a novel experience for players as it is an industry first!

During the 10 free spins, the T-1000 symbol acts as a substitute by morphing into any other character to award the highest possible win for that symbol combination.

Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, comments: "We’ve taken the core elements of the iconic Terminator 2 film to create an online slot that does the brand justice. Visually it is stunning and it has a fitting game mechanic that is completely unique to the online gaming market. Our operators and their players will be awestruck by our creation; we are incredibly excited about the game launch."

Rand Marlis, President of Creative Licensing Corporation, which represents Studiocanal for Terminator 2 licensing, says: "Microgaming is an expert in licensing big brands and we had no doubt that they would create a T2 slot that would perfectly represent the film’s legendary status. The end result really has surpassed our expectations and the online game is a masterpiece; I’m delighted that it is now live for everyone to play and enjoy. Working with Microgaming is a real pleasure and we look forward to a long-lasting relationship."

Terminator 2 online slot is live with Microgaming casino and Quickfire operators 4th of June.

Posted by Gambling News | Casino News | Friday 9 November 2012 11:24 am

Virtually every month releases a couple of new games. The latest releases for November are Both Break Away and Octopays video slots. These are not the only new things in the pipeline however, there will be plenty of new games on offer to help you while away the long cold winter nights. Microgaming is an Isle of Man based software provider with a very good reputation as a mainstream online casino gaming provider.

The new releases are an ice hockey themed game, and an underwater treasure hunting theme. They will be available online in the new month and available at most of the good Microgaming powered casinos.

Break Away as we said is a video slot – it invites players to take to the ice and win their way to victory. The theme is a super combination of this exciting winter sport and unbeatable online casino software. It offers great bonus features, scatter pays, the new Rolling Reels feature, Smashing and Stacked Wilds, Stacked Wilds, as well as the chance to win twenty-five free spins and up to ten x multiplier. Icons are all thinks ice hockey, so, if slots and ice hockey are the names of your games why not give it a spin or two.

Octopays, another video slot offers appropriate underwater treasure hunting graphics, and we know this has all been done before. But it is a fresh look at the theme, with the 243 Ways to Win feature, there is no pay-lines as such. The Kraken is a monster bonus feature and there is up to 16,000 coins to be won in the free spins feature.

But now for the really big news, Microgaming has announced a new partnership and licensing deal with the makers of Battlestar Galactica™. What this means is there is bound to be a game in the pipeline based on this Sci-fi theme. The licensing agreement is with NBC Universal TV and they are definitely in it for an online slot game. Sci-fi fans this is one for you.

Battlestar Galactica is one of the most critically acclaimed television programmes, it has reached an audience of more than 14 million viewers globally. The final season of the tale sees the last vestiges of humanity under attack from deadly Cylons whilst at the same time trying to find a new planet to call home. It has captured the imagination of millions of people and at the same time, created a new generation of fans. The series has also picked up three Emmy awards. The series ran between 2004 and 2009.

Microgaming are obviously delighted with this new partnership, and Battlestar Galactica’s strong international appeal should mean that the new slot game will be well received. "We can’t wait to see the finished product, but there will still be a wait. Be prepared for something truly special. Roger Raatgever, who is CEO of Microgaming, says they are thrilled to be creating video slots which are light years ahead of the rest".

Dark Knight Slots, What A Great Game To Play

Posted by Gambling News | Casino News | Saturday 29 September 2012 2:00 pm

As much as we hate to admit to this, one of our favourite casino games is definitely the slots. If we walk into a casino, we do not head for blackjack or roulette, we head for the nearest seat at our favourite slot game. The same applies to online gambling, and now let us think… hmmm… think some more…Nope. Never played any other game online but bingo and the !

Microgaming is one of the biggest and best of all slots designers, although they also design software for craps, poker, blackjack, casino poker, video poker, baccarat, pontoon, rummy… you name it… any virtual gambling game, and this brand is on the floor. One of the latest and greatest innovations in online slot design came when the marriage of the slot and movie genre met. Who innovated this first, we are not sure, it was either Microgaming or Playtech, and they did this through negotiating with the makers of trend-setting movies, and attaching these licenses to their games.

One of the latest marriages in this genre is the popular Dark Knight Slot. Recently launched in August, the last two months have been very busy for this game, and have spawned a whole slew of winners. It has already become one of the most prolifically played slots of the year, and has already given us three rather large progressive jackpot winners. There are four progressive bonus games up for grabs, and the highest starts at one million. Worth playing for? You bet your ass it is!

Dark Knight Slot Game

In the Dark Knight Mega Jackpot Slot game, the Mega Progressive prize starts at 1 000 000.00, the Major Progressive prize starts at 10 000.00, with the Minor Progressive at 100.00, and the Mini at 10.00. We also have to bear in mind, that each of these prizes grow as the game is played. So, there are winners in the base game, and of the progressive prizes.

Dark Knight Winners so far have seen two from Royal Vegas Casino where one lucky player from down under managed to bag AUS$ 22,895.78. Player two won a very impressive €32,823.79 prize, and the third winner, also from down under, won AUS $39,704.23 at Vegas Palms.

If this gives you even more incentive to play it should!

In the free spins bonus round there are 4,000,000 coins to be earned, and these are won apart from the PJP’s. This massive prize is generated by the fact that the free spins round offers a fifteen free spins and growing multiplier. What does that mean to you the player? It means that the sky is quite literally the proverbial limit.

The Joker character Feature can Award even more wins. These appear on the screen at any time they are triggered. Players are then rewarded with random bonuses, and there’s more. The fun just doesn’t seem to end when playing Dark Knight, despite the dark nature of the theme of the slot. Do make sure and join in the entertainment, because the winning just doesn’t stop too.
