The long-awaited Highlander Slot game is slated to be released in December 2017, and players are incredibly excited for their chance to spin the reels. Highlander, a 1986 film that quickly became a cult classic, is coming to the reels compliments of Microgaming, and gamblers are likely to be pleased with what they find when they play the game.
Highlander Slots features five reels and 243 ways to win, and the graphics appear as though they have been crafted with quality and mind. Fans of Highlander will be excited to see some of their favorite characters, including Connor Macleod and Brenda Wyatt, on the reels. Because the game boasts 243 ways to win, gamblers can also look forward to many different winning combinations, which could lead to unimaginably awesome prizes.
With so many online slots featuring characters from different comics, movies and other media, players may be wondering why it took so long for Highlander Slots to appear as an upcoming casino game. Microgaming finally struck a deal with Studiocanal, which holds the rights to the film; the deal between the two was facilitated by Creative Licensing Corporation.
David Reynolds of Microgaming is also excited about the upcoming release of Highlander Slots, saying that, “Highlander is seen as one of the great cult hits of the 80s. With its action-packed storyline and hefty rock inspired composition, it is a fantastic brand for an online slot. The game studio is busy completing the slot that captures all of the movie magic. The game’s features will incorporate the historical Scottish highlands and gritty New York City, with a classic movie poster art style and blistering guitar tracks.”
Of course, Creative Licensing Corporation is equally pleased to have brokered a deal that will lead to what could become one of the most beloved slot games of all time. Stephanie Kupperman of Creative Licensing also said, “Many of the iconic characters from classic ‘Highlander’ are featured in the slot, including Christopher Lambert as Connor Macleod, Roxanne Hart as Brenda Wyatt and Clancy Brown as The Kurgan. We think fans are really going to enjoy revisiting this epic story, and seeing their favorite villians and heroes in game format.”
With such a huge, dedicated group of followers, Microgaming is sure to have a hit on their hands already with Highlander Slots. While the details are still a bit sketchy on what players can expect, one thing is certain: This title is slated to become a brand-new favorite for a host online casino gamblers.
