Microgaming Buys Rights For Highlander

Studiocanal and Microgaming have signed a licensing agreement for the development of an online slot, based on the genuine HighlanderTM franchise! The popular fantasy blockbuster from the 80s was based on the story by Gregory Widen, whose main character was played by a rising star of that time – Christofer Lambert. Set between modern New York and mythical Scotland, Connor MacLeod (starring role) had to confront other immortal opponents in four sequels, in order to retain his coveted ability.

The movie developed a fan base in the meantime, due to its strong storyline and other powerful actors such as Roxanne Hart, Clancy Brown and Sean Connery. Its fiction-packed plot and fantastic soundtracks represent good gaming material for an online slot. The title is being developed to capture the movie’s magic and artwork, consisting of dark New York streets and cold Scottish highlands, whereas sizzling guitar melodies fulfill the overall impression.

Microgaming will launch the new slot on Wednesday, December 6th, and it will feature 243 paylines with main characters, Connor MacLeod, Brenda Wyatt and the Kurgan – trademarks of Creative Licensing Corporation. The leading game publishers are grateful for the opportunity to create this epic story, as seeing heroes from the 80s for once more in a reel format is definitely to be a huge hit.

The world’s renowned slot provider has developed many impressive brands, broken records and become a true master in delivering exquisite casino products, which include sportsbook, business solutions, live dealer and Quickfire. Thanks to its rich portfolio of games, awards and millionaire jackpot networks, it is certainly one of the cornerstones of the whole gambling industry.
