Microgaming agrees deal to develop Phantom of the Opera slot

Like other software providers, Microgaming has announced the news of an upcoming branded slot later this year – Phantom of the Opera.

The licensing agreement with The Really Useful Group was announced in the ExCeL in London where the ICE Totally Gaming 2017 conference took place a few days ago. The online slot will be based on the 2004 film and is inspired by Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera.

The 2004 film was directed by Joel Schumacher and featured Gerard Butler, Emma Rossum and Minnie Driver – it grossed more than $154 million worldwide and is the official movie adaptation of the 1986 musical which is world renowned.

The online slot version will use footage from the film and will undoubtedly have an iconic soundtrack with pieces such as ‘The Phantom of the Opera’, ‘The Music of the Night’ and ‘All I Ask of You’. Microgaming’s Games Publisher (David Reynolds) commented on the news by saying:

“The Phantom of the Opera has had unequivocal success, played to over 140 million people worldwide! It’s exciting to be working with a musical, a new genre of branded content for Microgaming, extending and broadening our portfolio of games. Due out in Q3, this game will be a true celebration of the world’s biggest opera, balancing a healthy mix of base game features with a feature-packed free spins round.”

When released, it’s will complement Microgaming’s strong offering of branded slots which already includes Bridesmaids, Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones, Jurassic Park and Terminator 2 amongst others. Furthermore, Microgaming will be releasing Jurassic World later this year! There’s also strong rumours that Microgaming will be releasing a much-anticipated sequel in Immortal Romance 2.
